All ready for stitching at sleep school!

I have busted my 'you know what' to get some of the stitcheries traced ready for sleep school with my son this week. They told me to 'bring my craft'. Time to wind down and do something for myself - they say...yeh!! No excuses now......so I of course forgot lots of things for Tom, bibs,bath wash etc trying to get these done - but I'm happy!!! ....now to actually start them..........

I didn't get around to tracing them all, but just happy to get most of them done.



Now, lets just hope he learns to sleep!

Happy stitching everyone...

Susie

Bless your heart...I've never heard of sleep school but hopefully it will help him sleep so that you can get some too.
I am going on vacation soon and plan to take mine for something to do in my down time.
Happy Stitching,
Mama Bear

Susie...sleep school...what is that? Too bad I didnt know about this when my oldest was a babe...I didnt get the pleasure of sleeping back then...hum....best wishes and happy stitching!

Thank you for your best wishes everyone. Sleep school is a wonderful program run by a local hospital which arms mums with confidence and strategies to help their children resettle if they wake too early in the day or night. The first two nights they do everything for you (except breastfeed your child - if that is how you feed) but settle them throughout the night and let you get some sleep. The babies are just far enough away so that you can't hear them but still close by. You can also have sleeping tablets if you wish. from the third day you are the one who then does all the settling...its a five night program (meals cooked everyday!). wonderful..........
