HOAN a UFO no more :)

Hi everyone :) I am doing a small happy dance here as I have finished my Home of a Needleworker by Little House Needleworks  Whoop whoop :)
finished :) 
I decided to work on it yesterday as part of my UFO day over at Friendly Stitchers and I got so far in to it,that it was almost finished and I couldn't bare to leave it as I was sure I was going to run out of one of the threads (I squeaked in with 2 thread lengths to spare, PHEW) so I carried on stitching on and off today and just put the last stitches in just as it was getting dark .....
I am so happy to have got this done and have got the frame already from the local Wikinsons :)
Natures Beauty LHN
I also have done a wee bit more on the Natures Beauty as well ..... and here it is :)


 LynnB did a freebie on her blog a little while ago and I said I would stitch it up and I did on Wednesday but I wasn't able to take a photo of it till later on ... It reminds me that I need a balanced diet ..lol I altered it very slightly as I drink from mugs mostly not daintily from a cup unless out ;0
LynnB freebie ):
It was a really quick stitch only took me a few hours to do  as well :)
I have got to do some cards this weekend as its fathers day over here next weekend and I have to send out in the post as well as a few anniversaries that are coming up and next week DH is on nights again so I have promised DD1 that I will work on the Celtic Autumn all next week and you never know I may get to finish that one too ..lol 


Damion 
magic mushrooms
I have to show you the really cute photo I took of Damien my DD1's guinea pig , she was cleaning them out (we have pip too ) and Damien likes to sit in the lounge in his blankie .. well he peeped out and I caught him with this pose .... he is quite a snuggle pig and loves to eat raw pepper !!  and finally a picture of my garden  .... DD1 bought some solar lights and said I could have them in the garden but they didn't want to work for some reason .. she went out yesterday and undid the panel part and the switch was broken so she popped it onto auto and ........
my little mushrooms are lit up yeahhhhhh .. now all I need to do is find a permanent spot and put the gnomes out too and I have a secret garden :)


So there you are folks a magical end to a wonderful Friday :0 hope every one has a wonderful weekend and take care one and all ... happy stitching :)love mouse xxxxx

Mouse,

Love your finish!! It's always exciting to finish something and the prospect of starting something new is exciting too!
Happy Stitching!!

Barbara said...

That is one of my fav designs by LHN...and you did an awesome job on it too. I love those little mushroom lights...so cute in your garden. Now all you need are the little pixies to come sit on them. :o) Of all the animals in this world guinnea pigs are the ones I'm allergic to. Our daughter had them at one time....can we say "acchoo".
Blessings!
