Just a small distraction

Well I think I can be forgiven for not much stitching happening here this week.


The week has been pretty busy but then on Thursday came THE biggest timewaster so far this year :o)


My brother and sister-in-law brought Spencer to see us - how can you concentrate on stitching when there's a baby to coo at in the house, especially one as sunny-natured at this one.
The only problem was he's very very nosy about cameras and just won't smile for them - put the camera down and you can have all the smiles you want but not in front of the lense.
These shots are...
With my three, his big, besotted cousins and Mr. Ted of course
On his own,
And getting a shoulder ride from his daddy
They went home this morning so at least I managed to sandwich Erica's quilt - nothing stitched yet though
While we're talking about babies Nigel spoke to his dad this morning who had been up to Lancashire for Nigel's niece's graduation. We asked how little Matthew John is getting on - the little one who was born at 24 weeks weighing 1lb 12 ozs back in January
Apparently he's been home a while now, is almost up to 10lbs and doing great. The miracles of modern science eh?

Ahem yes Anne, babies are very distracting - especially ones as cute as Spencer :) Romily still rarely smiles for the camera - she just wants to see how it works :)
