Old stitching and a new baby

I did some stitching on my sleeping cats , I was going to start a cushion for Sam, but found this in my work box, it called to me , so I have stitched more of the sofa section, I did all the blue by mum cat ear's. I am filling in the white background, this is not done in the kit, but I think it gives a finish line to the work.

Below is my take on a love cushion, which I made for my daughter Su, I have one last task to do, I was not sure if she would want the blanket stitch edge around the cushion, so I wrapped it for her with out the stitching, but Su has asked me to finish it, that's a task for this week.

Late on new years day Logan Jude Jones arrived , here he is with his dad, Kev's youngest son Stephen. Both mum Nic, and baby are doing well. They live in Somerset, which is 100 miles away, so next weekend we are off to stay with my brother and will visit the new family. Logan is our third grandchild, all boys, loads of football in this family.

Kev is on the golf course so I am off to town with Su, we don't require anything other than time together, later I plan to do some more stitching. Kev is back to work tomorrow, so I plan to remove the christmas decorations and pack them away. Later in the week I will spend time with Fliss and the boys.

I also need to get to a craft shop, I have to buy some silks (Floss) for the cushion front I am doing for Sam, I thought I had brought them all, but I am short of a few. Life after the long holiday is getting back to normal here.
