SQUEAKING with excitement :)

Hi every one :) I am soooo happy I am just squeaking with excitement .. today has started off really good ... I have "won" the travelling chart off Jo at http://serendipitousstitching.blogspot.com/ ...... I have followed this from the beginning and now have finally got the chance to stitch it . YIPPPEEEEEE :) soooo watch this space for when it is stitched so that I can pass it on :0

secondly I had my stash arrive from America today too I was worried it had got lost but it is here safe and sound in my paws :) also got lots of goodies from the bay of evil as DH calls it .. can't think why hehehehe  and finally .......

I am off on my Jolly hols to Glasgow tomorrow to stay with the wee Scottish woman other wise know as Ally ......I have got the necessaries eg Tea bags , milk and sugar along with a few goodies packed already ... just need to go and pack the stitching stash and my clothes   and I shall be off in the morning for a week of lots of tea drinking , stitching and sight seeing, all being well :) I am taking my over locker to over sew some fabric for her and also I shall be sorting out her sewing machine and giving her a lesson or two on how to use it :) I am packing the camera for the photo shoots heheheheh :)

On the Stitching front I do have something to show you heheheh..... Finally I hear you all say ..lol  I had the stitching group at my house on Thursday last week and Bev was a wee bit jealous of my stash heheheh  but I actually managed to stitch a bit while they were all there in between the cuppas and chocolate cake bars .. yummm and slurpppp ;)

I have also done a few finishes for Kath and she has given me permission to show them  but I know who they are for, reads my blog soooo I shall only show the one that's not for them atm :) I have finished and finished off my personal exchange for Angela  and it went in the post today and also have done Ally's PIF and will be giving that to her tomorrow ... letter has been sent to DJ too *waving paw helloo and also a few other surprises have gone out too soooo hopefully I will make some ones day soon :) 

The girls Barbara and Margaret have settled in beautifully and want to let all their fans know that they are having a fabulous time at their new home :) Their new parents were telling us all their antics when we went out for a meal with them and another couple of friends on Saturday night :)

So with out further ado  I shall leave you for the next week still doing a happy dance  and about to put the kettle on before tackling the packing with the update photos etc :0
take care every one and I shall see you all next week with lots of stitching updates hopefully :0

Hi Mouse!!!

Just wanted to say HI! Hope you are having a great time!!

On our end, we just got over an earthquake and Hurricane Irene all within days of each other.

Thankfully we survived, and pray for others who are under floodwaters.

So enjoy doubly!!
