When the Biggies were at school, the Small Girl and I spent many happy mornings just mooching at the kitchen table. She loves jigsaws and board games so that’s mostly what we did. Over the summer holidays I’ve sent her off to play with the others and, while the bit of head space was a relief, I’ve missed her company.
I had an idea in the middle of the night. Is it that brilliant ideas only come in the middle of the night or is it that I think all ideas that come in the middle of the night are brilliant? Either way, I decided it would be the work of mere moments to design a cross-stitch banner for the blog. Easy Peasy.
Am I nuts? I should tell you that I have never designed any kind of cross-stitch. Four hours of scaling up, counting squares, scaling down again, sellotaping pages, drawing crosses and rubbing them out again, children laughing, children helping, children despairing at their mother’s daft whims……..
Well, it’s a start. If it works out, you will be the first to know.
