what have tissues and lemsips have in common

Hi every one :) well if you haven't guessed from the title .... this little mouse has been awfully sick this week with a bad cold :(  gotten from her lovely DD1 and its passed on to DH as well ... soooo not much  has been got done this week .
I knew it was going to be bad when my daily squeak got delivered to my in box with a little mouse blowing into a tissue and surrounded by them ..lol ... wish I could show it to you, as it was ever soo cute but not sure I can put it onto here 


I have managed to get some more stitched on FA LA LA at stitching on Thursday night at Kath's this week ..... I had been in contact with them before and so far they haven't got it fingers crossed :) we had a lovely night stitching  and admiring Kath's Halloween decorations  and eating a lovely supper cooked by her daughter followed by a piece of coffee cake yummmmyyy :)


and today I finished off the spaniel puppy that I have stitched for Kath on her Afghan ..she asked me if I would like to do a square for her ... and never having stitched on one before I was quite impressed with it ..... may have to get one of my own :0...... I started it on Tuesday  and finished the rest today .... I could work on it as it was over two so was 9 count and my tired little eyes were pleased I could see it with out my glasses heheheh .


on the postie front I have had a wonderful week .. I received my rotating designer exchange piece from Karamino she stitched me the most lovely scissor keep in the shape of an acorn complete with felt leaves and an adorable owl charm :)


then DJ sent me some more ornaments for the Christmas tree  fund for Alison Joy's ward ... there are some more on their way soon soo the whole tree should be covered in "beautifully stitched with lots of love" ornaments :) along with a lovely Halloween ornament for DD1 which she loves and has hanging in her room atm .... I had to prise it down to take a photo hehehe


then I got a chart off Michelle that I am was hoping to stitch asap ..lol " poppy creations ...season of the witch" realised I haven't got any cc black coffee or gast black crow agghhhhhhhh..... ho hum ..lol


and then the cutest little tiny mouse pin was made and sent to me by cucki all the way from her house to mine ..... unfortunately he suffered a wee bit of damage that was fixed with tweezers and some glue .. one of his little wee tiny ears came off in transit :(


ohhh and I got a lovely card from my secret pen pal too ... I thought  had a idea but now am completely confused who you are hahahahh :)


other than that I've not been able to get much done with the cold .. I have attempted to empty my craft room in preparation for Saturdays huge Halloween Party thrown by DD1 and had to give up but hopefully it will get finished this week.... I had a brain wave that while every thing was out I would re decorate and give the room a lick of paint .... that will be after party and when we are feeling much better :) 
I did manage to get a load of threads on to their new bobbins and into a case .... I've had these threads for years and kept thinking will do them one day and as Thursday was the day  I woke up to a pulled muscle in my neck and I couldn't do anything  other than look forward or to the right sooo driving was  out  I decided to chill for the day and wind them on ....


soooo there you are folks  not much to report except I am feeling a wee bit better today and long may it continue :)
I'd better leave you with the photos of said goodies heheheh

my organised threads at long last
