Ok where to start .... ohhh go on then I'll get the kettle on .... cup cake with it ????
kettle is filled and on and bubbling away merrily ..
The week started with a finish YIPPPPPEEEEEE.. no 13 /15 to be exact..... poinsettia house by LHN ... the last stitches went in on Tuesday night .. unfortunately the piece was un ironed when I took the photo, as we had started to get the Halloween props out and ready for the BIG party on Saturday night :)
I have also put some more stitches into Winter whites but am not sure I took an update photo as I have slept since then ..lol
my craft room was slowly emptied from then on and cooooo I forgot how big the room actually is hahhahahah .. my stuff is spread through out the house in the bedrooms the attic and the garage and that was only what was on the floor , the work top, the window ledges and the shelves ..lol ....mmmm do you think I might have a craft addiction ???
I got a real shock on Thursday .. we had the stitching club here so that they could see some of the decorations..... as DD1 and her friend K had started to put them out .... we were merrily stitching away when both DD's n DH came in, after going out for a McDonalds, with a MacALLY !!!!! DD1 had arranged for her to come down and stay for a few days especially for the party WOOOOO HOOOOO :)
Friday was a veryyyyyy lonnnnnng day shifting stuff and hanging stuff up and occasionally stopping for a tea break ... there were four of us doing this and DD2 was baking yummy flapjacks and cup cakes ...... can 't remember what else we did as brain has gone for a walk..lol
Saturday the day of the party dawned very early as none of us had a really good nights sleep as we were soooo excited ... ?? and there were lots still left to do .... I had to find my sewing machine to do some alterations on part of DD1's costume and stick something onto DH's ... Ally was making tea and catching up on emails to make sure we were up to date with all activity on our groups ... she later iced all the cupcakes with butter cream icing in white and dark chocolate .....I went round and took some before photo's while I was at it too :)
Karen and her DH turned up with the star of the show Freddie who had his own costume and she got straight in and helped with any thing she could :)
I received some goodies from a blog win (sorry no photo :( but if you go to http://ftnfk.blogspot.com and have a scoot down a wee bit you will see what I won :)
the guests started arriving early and the party got under way in full swing for many an hour and there was music, laughter, karaoke and quite a few screams from peeps finding the scary bits around the house .......
DD1 and K did a fantastic job in the dining room ... they hung ooodles of black bin liners fringed so that you could get through them .. in circles from the ceiling and blacked out everything in there ... the only light was from the UV lights and the animated objects that were sensor activated ...... it took us ages to figure out how to get through ..lol and we kept ducking and that was in daylight .... when the guests came it really was pitch black and caused much merriment :)
every one had a fantastic time and complimented DD1 on throwing such a fabulous party ..... it was with great reluctance that folks began to drift home in the wee small hours of the morning .
Sunday Ally and I went round mine sweeping all the abandoned bottles , plastic cups and left over food in a bid to get some normality??? back in the mouse house......lol .... one huge brown bin full later of bottles we made it hahahaha
we then collapsed and chilled for the rest of the day (some more so than others eh Ally ..lol) in her defence she is poorly with a chest infection so I let her off ;)
Sooo Halloween day arrives and it took another 5 of us to take everything down , change light bulbs, hoover up and then we had a hilarious game of Darts ... please check out the mouse skills ..lol photo below !!!
we decided to have a fish and chip supper as a reward for all our hard work and then the girls entertained us with the Karaoke again
All in all we have had a fabulous few days .... the down side is no stitching can be done for a few days now as I and DH redecorate the craft room and then I have to get it all back in some semblance of order eeeekkkkkk wish me lots of luck ... I think I am going to need it ..lol
well there we have it for today folks ... so glad you have kept up with me heheh and the photos are on their way in a mo .... if you have a sensitive nature look away now hahahah
