Sunny days is spring here ??

Hi Everyone :)
oooo it has been soooo nice here at the mouse house ... I have had all the windows opened , washing blowing on the line , the birds have been singing their little hearts out and my craft room upside down ..lol .....
I had one of those nights last night where I couldn't remember where I had put my travelling stitcher chart ..... I had seen on one of my blogs Tricia's I think ???where she had done a little scissor fob with it and I thought oooo what a good idea  and then panic struck ....where was it .... luckily DD 1 was off today so she was able to help in the search and shifting stuff ... and a couple of spiders ousted later I found it PHEWWWWW!!!!! 


so my little room got a bit of a spring clean which was good really as hopefully Teejay is coming over tomorrow afternoon for a cuppa and some stitching and to pick her pin cushion up so I shall be able to show it to you all after she has been :0


I really must say thank you all for your lovely comments on my stitching and my competition pieces ... it makes my day to get comments and to find that peeps really like what I do, is even better :) especially after seeing the  stitching  that you all do :) 


I have been doing some stitching on one of the 15 crazies that I haven't touched since I started it, as a break from the Romantique SAL this part 6 has taken ages to get going .... the main problem was I had printed off the charts on the wrong setting, so part of them were missing then I re do the bit missing to find it is smaller than the original print out .. DOH!!!!! sooooooo by the time I've figured it all out and gone back and forth and back and forth I have finally sussed it and could get on with the stitching which is definitely not fast by any means with this one  with it being 32 count and dark material .. I have had to put my mouse glasses  on for this one ..lol so I shall show you how far I have not got with it ..lol and the "Rose Cottage" as well
Rose Cottage by CCN so far 

parts 5 and 6 of SAL

















Sorry about the creases and wonky scans ..lol working in hand for both and didn't realise wonky till done it ..lol...... the dark purple stitches up the side on the left are where I have to stitch to with the light purple bit  before the 10th of next month eeeekkkkk  !! I have almost done part 5 just need to do another  cream and dark purple bit and that's that bit done on the right hand side phewwww..lol 


The Rose Cottage is bliss to stitch in between as on 28 count and light and much smaller  :) and I just love these charts ..... 


I have posted out the prizes for the blog giveaway but I still haven't heard from the last two ladies  Patti and Peggy  so if any body knows them, can they give them a nudge to contact me please otherwise they will miss out :( and I will have to re draw ...


well I think that is almost all my news here at the mouse house except a week on  Thursday Ally is coming down to my little pad for a few days R & R and we are meeting up with karen and Gillie too ... so there will be much to tell (hopefully;)


Ok if you have made it this far with my waffling heheh you deserve a cuppa :) I shall go and put the kettle on :) choccie biccie with it ??? 
squeak to you all soon and happy stitching every one :)
love mouse xxxx

Glad you managed to sort out your SAL - it is coming along lovely. Rose Cottage is gorgeous too.

Tricia said...

LOL! Shall I tell you a secret? I couldn't find my chart at all, so I just stitched the little girl using my stitched piece as the pattern. :-) Your stitching is looking just lovely, and I'm having a cup of coffee before supper in your honor. :-)

Your Rose Cottage is beautiful Mouse and I love the progress on Romantique.

DJ said...

Your stitching is lovely, Mouse and the more I see of your Romantique Sampler, the more I drool...mine won't be nearly as stunning as yours!!!!!!! I really wish I could pop in for biscuits and tea....one day maybe! *Hugs*
