HI Everyone :) as you can probably tell from the title I have some brand new shiny bronzy red specs ..lol
For the last few weeks I have been having really bad headaches and had put it down to the stormy weather we had been having ... feeling tired etc etc until I went to get my yearly check up at the Drs for my meds and she said mmmm when was your last eye check .. you know you are supposed to go every year ...Whoops .. I muttered something along the lines of actually just going up now to book and when I left I did just that .....
needless to say after being thoroughly examined I needed to have much stronger glasses and also use eye drops daily as my eyes are very dry .... soooo this last week I didn't do any stitching at all :(
but I did do a BIG tidy up and sort out of the sewing room so I shall show you where I spend my days when not doing other things like meeting up with fellow stitcher's etc ...
My DH muttered those immortal words "oh I can see worktop " when I said I had been busy !!! so there you are ... my tiny , tidy stitching room:)

I have been searching for some photos to show you of some "sewing" sewing that I used to do many years ago .. I used to have my own small business making wedding dresses, costumes as well as bridal flowers etc .. yeah I know I have said" not bad for a beginner" with my cushions etc but I know there are far better seamstresses out there and I can always learn more tips and techniques on how to do stuff .... In fact it is because Lynn of http://happinessiscrossstitching.blogspot.com/ that I have dug these out as we have been talking about her doing a blog for dressmaking and I said I would be one of her first followers once she had set it up :)
so just for you Lynn .. oh go on you can all peek ..lol
|My work about 12 years ago|
I am the one in the cream dress and also with my DH in our Sealed Knot Finery and yes I made his suit too with the slashed sleeves :) The photo shoot was at Wortley Hall near to us
I don't do anything on this scale any more as it is too much for me now but every so oft I do a bit and I do enjoy making up the smalls and playing with ribbon and lace and bits and bobs ...... I think you can tell that from my collection on my back wall ..lol
So there you have it a sneak peek into my world at the mouse house ... and now I can see much better I shall be stitching up a storm ..lol..... I have got something on the go, which I can't show you at present but all should be revealed by the end of the week ...
okay dokay its time for a cuppa so I shall squeak to you all soon :)
take care and Happy stitching love mouse xxxxx
