AND I did it ;)

stitch on each days new crazy project  that is heheheheh
hellloooo every one ... brrrrrr it has been very chilly and frosty here at the mouse house .. the sun has tried to come out but didn't do much to raise the temp soooo I stayed indoors to day :)
Bentley has got rather big headed over his fan club ... he even wanted his own blog ...lol he has kindly posed for some photos yesterday and today for his adoring fans  and even went to sleep for me in my room long enough for me to stitch on today's final crazy .....


But I digress ..... yesterdays crazy needs to be squeaked about first sooooo have you got your cuppa's ready and you comfy ??? then I shall begin .....
I started the Bloom Sampler by Threadwork Primitives  ... stitching it on 28 count lambswool with the recommended threads ... I loved this chart when it was about earlier on last year and I was lucky enough to win it, in a goody box from Terri so it was one of the first ones into my crazy list :)


I shall tell you this while you are still sitting down, so you don't fall off in shock and spill precious cuppa's over the screen but ....... I actually stitched on my Romantique Sampler to try and get it totally finished asap .... yup I worked on a UFO hehheheh .... so I shall show you a progress photo in a mo :)


Yesterday I decided in my infinite wisdom to sort out the corner cupboard with all my cleaning stuff in .. I had bought some small plastic baskets to put things in so that it would be easier to get stuff out for other peeps too :) and cooooo you know when you think, should I really have started this heheheheh ... it took me all last night and today to get it done with a inquisitive pooch trying to help me wipe the shelves down .... it is now all shiny and tidy ... for now ...lol 


today dawned early as per and as I was trying to get my emails up to date I had a little helper wanting a cuddle ... luckily the camera was to hand to take the odd photo or two ...lol 
I tried numerous of times to sit down and put the thread in the needle and start today's project but a small bundle of fun kept saying I'm here ...lol .... I finally managed about 2.30 this afternoon to stitch  when I had brought his cushion and blankie into the craft room for him to have a snooze on ... my little froggy was gob smacked that was all I had managed, when I took the photo heheheheh ......... can you guess which chart it is ?????...lol 


in at 14 Bloom Sampler Threadwork Samplers

part 20 Romatique Sal update 

yep that was I all I managed

yup it was "Needles" of Cherrywood Designs stitching on beige weeks dye works  gingham fabric with Cranberry Gast thread :)
sooo here you go ,some awwww photos  for you all ...
morning cuddle with me

am tiredddddd 

ohhhh nooo not the camera again 

AHHH BOOOOO 

snooooooozing 


soooo that's all the crazy  starts for this years challenge all done .... there are a few more to start later on once I've got a few smalls done and dusted for a few peeps that are waiting ...  won't be long honest heheheh 
sooo hopefully next time I blog there will be lots of eye candy to look at, fingers crossed a small furry pooch with let me heheheh....
soooo until next time take care and happy stitching :)
love mouse xxxxxx

Congrats Mouse you did so well. Bentley is looking even more adorable. You have not taken enough photos yet, he hasn't learnt to close his eyes when he hears the camera start to click :@ Trust me my cats know, and I'm sure Meah rolls her eyes :@

Congratulations on all your starts. They are all beautiful and I will definitely enjoy watching your progress on them. Puppy paws are too cute.

Mrs. GraceWorks said...

YAY for you! I'm sure Froggy was just feeling bad that he didn't get to help you (un)stitch anything. :) I had to look up the Bloom Sampler to see which one it was. It's cute!!!! I'll watch for you to finish that one. :)

Give Bentley a snuzzle for me!

Susieq said...

Oh the puppy is sooo cute. Please give that adorable one a cuddle for me.

Anne said...

Bentley should have his own blog! He is super cute. I love how he snoozes all the time, like he's burnt out from all the snoozing and love!!

Lovely starts for you! Can't guess the sampler though...I would need more!!

Now I need to go grab a cup of either tea or coffee so I can continue stitching Jane!

HUGS

Ps doesn't it feel wonderful to get things organized like the cleaning cupboard!?!

Great progress.

Grats on the final crazy starts Mouse. I'm trying to catch up on emails too, and keep caught up on blogs!! Not doing so hot, but I have hopes. Your pooch looks like an oasis of contentment. He's adorable. Hope you're having a great morning this morning!!

Bentley looks as if he has settled in well. When I tidy up my sewing room I can never find anything afterwards.

Denise SA said...

Your Puppy is adorable and can see why you might not have so much time for stitching.I read through you earlier blogs I had some how missed.
Lots of lovely starts.

Susan said...

You have been busy, and with an adorable puppy in the house - I don't know how you got any stitching done - when Indy was a puppy, it was almost impossible to stitch!

Julie said...

Well done starting all of the challenge pieces. Exciting times ahead watching them develop.

Mylene said...
