Getting the knitting needles out.

P.s. Mr M has been working on a little cross stitch… I bought him a kit from Purple Thread Designs for his birthday, but he was having a rubbish day the other day so I gave him it to cheer him up. He has been wanting to have a go at my cross stitch project but I wouldn’t let him, so now he has his own, slightly more manly little project!
