DD 1 had a competition at her work where all the teams were given a straw hat and some little chicks and told to decorate as they pleased ... DD got the job and me ..lol

We seem to be having a run of lovely weather and today was no exception .. all windows were opened ... my net at the back door was wafting in the slight breeze , washing was on the line , my very small pile of ironing was quickly despatched and I did try to hoover up in my bedroom but my hoover cut off .. *sigh what was a girl supposed to do in the mean time .. I know STITCH hahahahah ....
today is UFO day on Friendly stitchers and as you know I wield the wet noodle these days so I thought I'd better work on one of my UFO's so I pulled out "home of a needleworker" and set to .. listening to the birds chirpin, the lawn mowers mowing and general chit chat of Mr n Mrs Quackers who came to visit again :)
|soooo here is what I got stitched to :)|
Really quite pleased on my progress .. I think another couple of weeks and it should be done ????
When I put my needle down and had a restorative cup of tea I pulled out "to bee or not to bee " and did some more on that as well ... I think I may get this finished tomorrow ???
|almost finished no 9/15|
there is just 3 bees at the top and a couple of tiny ones dotted about and then the border to do ... I must ask .. has any body stitched this ??? on the chart there is charted a B in the curve of the flower just above the To ... which is not actually on the photo of the chart ?????
Its getting late here again in the mouse house, only time I seem to get the blog updates done ..lol so I shall leave you for now and hope that you have a lovely Easter break if I don't squeak to you sooner :)
take care and happy stitching
love mouse xxx
