sorry my usual blog post is late but as you can tell from the title I am still recovering from the party and the re decorating of my craft room ..... we still have bits of Halloween still up that we haven't got round to sorting out like curtains etc ... need to find a dry day to get them washed and back up so we are still stuck with the shower curtain up and the black ones in the room ooo and not to mention the red light bulbs which surprisingly are quite nice really hehehehe.
The kettle has gone on for you Joyszeroo :) want a fiendish fancy or a scary lemon n lime jaffa cake bar to go with it ????
My little piece of sanctuary is now sporting a wonderful calming buttermilk cream colour on the walls and shiny white window sills ..... it really didn't take that long to do the painting ... its all the sorting out and reorganising that's the problem ..... after a week and a half I just had to sit down and out some stitches into my Winter Whites ..lol
How is it that when you take stuff out of a room .. get rid of some of the furniture and some craft magazines (card making one ) tidy up things into the correct boxes and reorganise that you suddenly find it won't all go back in ?????
there must be a answer to this sooo all suggestions gratefully received heheh
The weather at the mouse house as you have already guessed has not been very conducive to going out and about until today when DD1 suggested we go for a walk in the woods near by and I could take some pictures yipppeee ... soo armed and dangerous with the camera DD1 , DH and I went for a pootle round stopping every few mins for a hang on ... ooo look at this and ooo look at that mushroom ...It was absolutely gorgeous in there with all the fall colours and as we walked round leaves were silently raining down on us ... the only sound was of the blue tits chirping and the rustling of a squirrel up a tree every so often .......I must admit it was the very tonic I had been looking for as it blew all the cobwebs away and I feel sooo much better than I did .....
I have done some stitching as mentioned on the Winter White .. not much progress but better than none at all and I've also stitched my ornament for my partner on friendly stitchers just need to decide how to finish it .. I've also started my ornament for Patty C which I hope she will like, but obviously I can't show you them as yet ..lol The next on the stitchy list is the biscornu I've designed for the Harrogate bran tub exchange which will be revealed in two weeks YIPPPPPEEE ooo can you tell I'm getting excited to go ..lol..... I've still got to do my list yet as I need to sort out the crazy challenge pieces for 2012 and make sure I have everything for them and if not I will get them at Harrogate *VBG and then I've to make an Autumn Needle book as an angel stitching for one of the members on Friendly Stitcher's who was let down by her partner .. soo I need to get sorted for that one asap too :)
well I suppose I'd better get those photos up I can show you heheh drum roll please hahahah
