ok so... where do I begin *(cue music..lol)
the kettle has boiled and the cuppas are ready and we have some nice chocolate digestives to munch as well tonight :)
On the stitching front I have lots of little bits to show you ... stitching time has been drastically reduced due to the small bundle of fur ......I have to time it so I can get a few stitches in when Bentley is asleep or wait until reinforcements arrive in the evening ......
The IHSW flashed past like a blurr, but I managed to work on the Winter Band sampler by LHN ,the Ladybugs and bumble bees LHN, the Romantique sal by Angie , did some more on Kaths birthday stitch and frogged a lot too :( .... also did a wee bit on the Cottage SAL and also started the Band Sampler I have designed for my group the friendly stitchers ,as well as frame the "count your blessings " to match the others I did last year (the frames are from Wilkinsons)
I almost forgot, I received the Travelling Pattern from Gracie the other day ....."Thankful for Ewe" ... I have made a start on it after spending ages choosing the fabric and the floss guess what I opted for ....... 18 count rustic Aida !!!!
along with gast threads which off hand I can't remember ..lol ..... I shall do a post for it once finished, to chose the next person for it to travel too, so keep your eyes pealed :)
oooo on a good note my parcels have all arrived at their destinations so I can show you what I stitched for Peggy she showed photos on her blog and her face is a picture when she sees it ..lol .... I am pleased to report she loves it PHEW ..lol....
the other parcels. one was a RAK and the others were thank you's.. just for your info ...lol
I also remembered it was TUSAL day to day sooo I took a picture of my orts with my wee mouse from Fiona .... there does seem to be rather a lot in there ...lol
OOOOO am cream crackered ...lol just had to chase a wee black and white bundle around my small garden as he seems to think that eating every single leaf , stone and worm dust is fun .... If I haven't lost any weight next time I go hahahhaha
seriously though he is hard work when I have got him .... I mean we have to have a snuggle cuddle in the morning for a hour before I can get anything normal done around the mouse house ....lol followed by a play and then another nap etc etc etc ..lol
well I have made another drink for you all to slurp while you drool over the wee progress photos and my tusal etc ....
