Being organised

Well I have been given a  bit of useful info from Gillie on how to put my favourite blogs on to my side bar ... Thanks babes :) SOOOOOO if yours is not there yet do not panic am still getting to grips on finding them , have them saved on my blogs list on my main google page just not got round to getting them copied and pasted but I will dooooo honest:)

Ok there were a few things I had forgotten to put on my last post so hopefully that will be rectified in a few mo's. I have to say that since Halloween I have been poorly with the dratted *cold* and have not been well at all so I have been languishing in my craft room armed with a blankie and tissues and been doing a bit of stitching so  I have got all my commitments done and dusted for the exchanges etc on friendly stitchers I can't show you the latest one as the owner won't get it till we go to the Harrogate Knitting and stitching show in two weeks time :)

Firstly I forgot to show what I sent to DJ for her *big * birthday I shall be kind and not mention the age hehehehe but if you bob to her blog tickled pink you will find out here is a picture of what I sent 

For DJ 
Beaded scissor fob for DJ
Right that's that bit remembered , then I also have been making some cards which I forgot to show you , told you I was trying to be organised heheehe (just wish i could figure out how to put the pics where i want them
Made for an 80th birthday 
    If I have put these one's up before sorryyyyy  

Then what else mmmmmmmmmmm thinking here heheheh...... oooooo yes while languishing I decided to have a go at doing a simple logo design for the friendly stitchers and sat down at the computer and with the help of the Jane Greenoff  designer gold stitch program I have  achieved this heheheh soooooo here is the stitched result .... I found some 24 count evenweave that I had bought a while ago when down at Jane's having a stitching retreat and thought mmmmm voila I shall use this ... it took me only a few hours to stitch up and then I made it into a pillow cushion .... I had to make a pillow insert for it as it was such an off the cuff size so I had to rummage round in my material stash to find some cotton to do this.... unfortunately it is not quite big enough to give if a plump fullness I was after but hey ho it is for me and now I have worked it out, if any body want's something similar  I have the "I know what to do now "  sooooo here is my first attempt :)
First attempt at designing
so there you go :) If I had done it on a smaller count of fabric it would have been much smaller all round but I like to make a statement heheheheh ;). 

Then finally I move to the being organised bit and my 2nd cuppa of the day :0 ..... I decided last night that as I was feeling much better and a wee bit braver I would tackle the *to get list* for Harrogate sooooo  I settled down in my comfy chair and got to work ........ I opened the first drawer and thought mmmm ...went and got some plastic A4 document holders and some sticky labels and started to organise my charts into designers and went oooo forgot had this and ooooo keep that one out and so on and so forth Till about 10 folders later I had organised that drawer !!!!!! My DH just shook his head when he saw all the folders and I said I've only done the one drawer heheheh ...... soooo today dawns bright and sunny and I shall go back in and tackle all my Little House Needlework charts now as most of them have the specialist  threads , so need to check what else I need so that I can get some more of them done, as I do like these charts :)

Ok if you have go this far I am impressed you deserve another cuppa... go one you know you want one and while we're at it a sticky bun as its almost elevenses ;)

Right I have waffled enough so I shall scurry into my craft room and go and get some more done t.t.f.n. and happy stitching or crafting which ever you are deciding to do today :)
love mouse xxxxxxxxx
