BUT the week before well I can show you lots and yack about lots heheheh SOOOOOO get the kettle on me thinks you are going to need it ..lol
now where was I ahhh yes .... I have been very fortunate these last few days and have won some lovely give aways .. one from Debbie which please forgive me for droooling a wee bit here .. a pair of wonderful blue gingher scissors and a scissor frog will be winging its way across to the mouse house .... a lovely chart off Jane a bird of happiness and also a prize from Terri for her back to blogging give away ... this also is winging its way to me .... sooo can you see my happy dance ???
My personal exchange piece is winging its way across the pond too soooo now you can see why I am stalking the postie heheheh ..... he has been very nice to me this week already though as my secret pen pal sent me two of the cutest wee mice ornaments and some notelets .....(I've sent my letter off to my pen pal and I hope she gets this one ) and also my calender girl parcel of Meg (from the friendly stitchers group) arrived too ... soo have been drooling over my stash again heheheh
on the sewing front I have completed the making up of the christening cushions and dropped them off as well as doing some making up of stuff for Kath too.... so now I can move a wee bit more in the craft room .. well I could until I went to Michelles..lol ..... Kath asked me if I wanted to go and meet Michelle on Saturday as she was going to pick something up from hers and as I had bought a craft tote from her as well, I could get it early instead of waiting to meet her at Harrogate ... well not being one to miss out on an outing ... off we went to Michelle's house and Chris came too ... I was the map reader again ..lol
we had a lovely time there ... her new conservatory is gorgeous as well as her garden and while I was there gave an improptu sewing lesson ..lol ... we went out for lunch and had a lovely meal at a local carvery before heading back for another cuppa or two and admiring of her stitched pieces and stash too :)
Can't wait for Harrogate to meet up again ... how many sleeps now ???
I got back home to find out that our main computer has developed a fault NOOOOOOOOOO ..... luckily I had managed to back up quite a lot of my files of work a few days before ... its still all there just won't let us stay on to do anything .........
I've managed to get a bit of stitching done since I got back and hopefully as DH is on nights this week should get a bit done each day and night soooo that I can catch up with everything ....watch this space ......:)
ok hopefully I will be able to upload some pictures soooo fingers crossed as never done this before on here ......

before I forget I must let you know that the boys have gone to a new home and are settling well ... they have now got lots of lady friends ;) and my garden can now be put back to some semblance of normality as the boys quite liked a lot of my plants to munch on ..lol my poor hostas are reduced to tiny ragged leaves ....
think this is it for now ..... don't forget about the travelling pattern in my last post ..... you need to comment there if you want to be in with a chance for it .. well I have just seen the time and it definitely time for this little mouse to go to snooze so I shall say t.t.f.n... take care and happy stitching till next time :) love mouse xxxxx
