|all my goodies :)|
Oooo train of thought has just gone of the track .....
OHHH yes DOH ..lol
|orts and a bag :)|
I have been following lots of blogs showing their Orts off every month and as I couldn't fit any more into my little ort bag I thought I would show off mine heheheeh..... the last time I emptied this was for DJ's birthday in October when I stuffed her Humbug I made with them :) so with out further ado ta daaaaaa.....
don't they look pretty :) mmmm think I have been doing a wee bit of stitching there hahhah ... my little bag sits on my light at the side of me so I can just pop them in there when done :)
I am just putting the finishing touches to a competition piece for the Midsummer Stitch and Show on my group Friendly Stitchers.... and then I shall pop it up hopefully by the end of the weekend :)
I went and got my hair done again by DD and now am sporting a shorter do , a lovely dark colour with a red undertone and they straightened my hair which is lovely but not what I am used too ..lol
|My mums sewing box and my treadle machine|
After I went to do a bit of stash shopping and got some lovely wider ric rak to add to my growing collection :) sooo I can for see some more stitching coming on ..lol I have a few bits in mind to stitch soooo watch this space :)
while having one of those days where I had to get something down from the attic ... I sent DD 1 up there and between us I managed to get down what I remembered was up there...lol
and as you can see from the photo which I think is above this waffle I brought down my mums sewing box complete with old bobbins and lots of stitching bits inside soooo I decided to stage a photo and put it on my treadle machine :) I remember the box was used everyday when my mum was alive and had her "salon " the treadle machine we have had for oodles of years and my dad finally said I could have it a few years back so it has pride of place in my lounge :) while on the travels in the attic I found some of my mums old tool collection I think for rug making .. I didn't manage to get them down but shall do in the near future and let you have a peek :)
Right the kettle has been, on the brews have been made and passed round to Ally , Shelly and Nancy who have been keeping me company tonight on line :)
I shall say toodles for now and will squeak to you all again very soon :)
take care one and all and happy stitching :)
love mouse xxxxx
