I am also really pleased to say that I have got both my ornament exchanges finished finished and are all ready and packed to go the post office tomorrow and be on their merry way across the pond and on time tooo PHEW heheheh photos will be shown once they have been received safely :)
here at the mouse house earlier on this week the weather has been glorious sunshine and sooo mild for this time of year .... I have had the back door into the craft room open while I have been merrily sorting and putting stuff away and I can finally say I'VE DONE IT !!!!!..... can you see this happy dance ????
three weeks later the room has had a spring clean, a lick of paint and a whole lot of sorting done ......
the best comment was from a friend ,when moaning about stuff not going back in he said it was like digging a hole then trying to put it all back ... it won't go in no matter how hard you try ...lol
I promised Cindy that I would get Afternoon tea out and work on it this weekend as she was getting Gillie to nag me at Harrogate (this Friday whoop whoop) soo last night I worked on it for 4 hours ... as its over one ... it doesn't look much ... I was sorry to have to put it down as it was late and bed time for me ..... have taken photos as proof !!
Cindy, Shelley and I were talking on FB the other night and we got round to how many pieces we had stitched on this year and finished ... well I got my little book out and counted 1,2 miss a few 45 ,46...... eeekk I had finished 46 stitched pieces and have 9 more on the go *KERPLUNK ..lol
I have had to take a photo of the book too ..lol they are a suspicious lot ..lol
