Another one bites the dust :)

HI Folks :) ooooo I am doing a little happy dance here as today I managed to get some stitchy time in and finished yes finished another one of my crazy 15 challenges YIPPPEEEEE :)


I had been tootling through blog land and was getting inspiration and ideas from peeps and also admiring all the finishing of the crazy pieces that have been going on and thought "mouse if you don't get a move on, the end of the year will be here before you know it " 


So I decided to sneak into my stitching chair this afternoon and got down to a serious bit of needle work for an hour or two and the odd cuppa too ..lol 


and Voila here is the finished piece "My Needles Work" by LHN 
My Needles Work by LHN stitched by mouse :)
The eagled eyes ones of you will notice I've not stitched the border as I am going to make her into a cushion and I am sure somewhere in my stash of fabric I have the right colours ;) .... so that is 3 down and ermmmm 12 to go??? have I got it right this time hehehehe 


So which one to try and get done next ?? I have a few that are almost there and some I've not touched much at all ... so tomorrow if I get chance I shall look through my box and decide :)


I also managed to get the next lot of Val's sal done as well on my stitchers book page :) so here this is too :)
Mouse's stitchers book with Val's sal stitches
I need to add the stitches names on there and some beads as well but I am waiting till I have got more done before I put them on, as I don't want to run out of the teal silk I am using on the other pages ..... 


So there you are, a quick update in the mouse house ... we were supposed to have been going out today but the weather decided to be naughty and be cold and rainy so I didn't get any photos of my daffodils in the front garden which have bloomed and flowered  today and got a bit battered by the wind as well ... I shall endeavour to get one tomorrow all being well :)
I shall now go and put the kettle on for a well deserved cuppa .. any one else want one too ?????
t.t.f.n love mouse xxxxxx

Love your finish, colours are gorgeous and will make a lovely cushion. Three down and 12 to go (yep that definitely adds up correctly), if you can sneak back into that sewing chair for the next 2 weeks you'll be done!!!
I'm on my way over but it'll have to be a coffee for me, I'll bring the sunshine too xxx
