busy busy busy :)

Hi Every one :)
hope you are all enjoying a wonderful weekend and Happy 4th of July to all those across the pond :)
Just hatched

Well this week has been a whirlwind of a week starting on Sunday with the safe arrival of the third chick I was worried about on Saturday and also another little one hatched too :)  unfortunately this is all we got this time  but all four are doing well .. and they have a new home already once they are old enough to leave me ..lol
so here are a few pictures taken over  the week of ennie meanie mynie and mo ..lol 
we think that the darkest one may be a Silkie  ... they are all doing really well and have been enjoying the sunshine we have had today .


to me from heather (front)
I had a lovely surprise on Wednesday from Heather from the group .. I had sent her some samples of some linen , even weave and hand dyed fabric as she hadn't ventured forth into this wonderful world yet ..lol and she has stitched me a beautiful Biscornu on hand dyed Polstitcher's fabric I think ? the colours are just lovely so I shall proudly show off to you all my lovely surprise :)
to me from Heather (back)
On Thursday I met up with some fellow stitcher's that had joined the Friendly stitchers group and they live not too far from the mouse house :) we had a lovely evening stitching and showing said stitching off , with the all important cup of tea and some lovely stickies to go with it tooooo yummmmm :)
Friday was spent going to the hospital for my normal regular checks and then bobbing on to see my friend Sue for a few hours before playing mum's taxi for DD2 
and Saturday I spent making a few cards for a party we were going to that evening soooo today I didn't do much at all except a bit of shopping playing taxi and ooo a tiny bit of stitching ..lol
thing this one is a Silkie
OOOOOO and the most important thing I have done this week is ... I got my Model test piece which I have been working on and its looking good even if I say so myself ..... sorry no peeking allowed .:)
BUT the best bit of this week ... shall I tell you ???? really you want to know ... are you sure .. ok are you ready for this ...
I won a$40.00 Gift Certificate for 123 stitch from Peggy  at http://kentuckysampler.blogspot.com/  It really did brighten my day up and I am soo happy that I have won and can go and spend a few hours browsing for some goodies .. don't panic I will let you  know what I chose :)
So there you are my week in a nut shell or should that be egg shell ...lol ... Its time for me to go and put the kettle on again and make you all a cuppa or two :)

Romantique SAL
in between everything else I have been working on the Needlework shop , it now has a full roof and almost a full top wall ..lol  I have been doing a bit on the first of the twin samplers and I have put a stitch or two into my Romantique sampler which I need to get done by the tenth of this month for the next installment
Sorry the photos aren't in order but I still can't get it to work ..lol 
I think that is it for now ... hope every one has a lovely week and I shall catch up with you soon :)
take care and happy stitching :0
love mouse xxxxx
