COOOO Getting there :0

Hi Every one :) hope you have been enjoying some of the gorgeous weather we have been having this last week  until tonight when it decided to give my plants a much needed spritz ..lol
I have had washing drying on the line every day and listening to the drone of bees mingled with the lawnmowers and the children playing out in the fresh air ...
we had some viewers round the mouse house on Sunday so the house was gleaming and it was lovely for them to see it in the nice weather too :) have yet to get any feedback from it but hey ho ...


Ok as promised as I haven't heard anything from Patti or Peggy at all I have re drawn two new names (well DH did to make it fair :) and the new winners are
Carla in Fargo, ND   and Shari  so girls can you please email me with your snail mail addresses :) my email is in top left hand corner on here :)


I also won a stylish blogger award this week ... made my day :0 from  Kell at Diary of a Domestic Goddess...  I am supposed to tell you 7 things about myself but can't think of anything to tell you heheheh .... will have a think 
ok here goes ...have sung with the Black Abbotts , learnt to sew on a hand sewing machine ,got locked up in a gorilla cage for a photo shoot (no animals were harmed hahaha)  and the first thing I ever stitched from scratch by hand was a little mouse with frilly dresses and a cap ... I nearly won the pattern on ebay a few weeks ago ... 
well not quite seven but ...lol  and I am supposed to award 15 blogs the same award .. well I can't choose... so you will have to shout if you want it ..lol don't want to hurt anybodies feelings by not awarding it  :)


And finally the reason for my title ..... the Romantique SAL ..... I am almost there in finishing parts 5 & 6 PHEWWWW ..... so I shall show you the progress to date as well as the garden pleasures I did some more on :0


Garden pleasures LHN




Romatique SAL 5 & 6

so that's it for now :) I shall go and put the kettle on as I am quite thirsty after all this waffleing heheheheh ..... squeak to you all later ...
