Wallace and Gromit

I feel increasingly guilty for neglecting my blog (and others` as well) these past few weeks but the `work schedule` got a bit hectic: back-to-back projects with pretty tight deadlines... Well, actually, they aren`t TOO tight, as long as I work every day, practically all day, so that`s all I`ve been doing - until now, that is. Yesterday and today I selfishly took two days off to stitch something for Gregory, who`s 8 years old today!!!
Of course, this still meant stitching but at least it was hobby, not work :)
I just finished it before he blew out the last candle on his cake (it was almost that close!) and I`m so glad he likes this little notebook - he can`t wait to start a new journal, about the eighth or ninth one now, in which he records all the dinosaurs he and his two favourite teddies have in their Jurassic Park :)
And now, after this little detour, I get back to my advent calendar for Gold ;)
Wallace and Gromit pattern from Adele Welsby`s Cross Stitch Characters (David & Charles, 2002)

  2. Thanks, ladies! By this morning it turned out that a dinosaur would have been better for the cover of this notebook but we still love Wallace and Gromit! :)
