hope every one is enjoying this wee bit of spring weather we are having ... the mouse house windows have been open most days to let some of the gorgeous fresh air into the house ... I've even had some washing out on the line :)
the kettle is boiling and the cups are ready ... sooo as you are armed and dangerous with a cuppa and a biscuit, read on heheheh...
last week I was pootling round my little room as often do when all of a sudden while bending over to get something out of a drawer ... I let out a huge scream ... of pain .. my back decided to spasm and tell me it wasn't happy with the current situation ... me neither it was not a pretty sight ..lol
sooooo things ain't going to well in that dept atm as it has been screaming at me on and off all week and again tonight ..., just when I had got used the humming chorus yesterday as well ...lol
sooo what has a girl got to do but stitch on a few bits and bats .... get taken on a gentle stroll with DH and Bentley and have a thunk ......
sooo stitching ....
I've finished the Jan cottage of the CCN sal and moved onto February's one :) , I finished and sent Inky her prize and worked on Kath's prezzie and am over half way now :) I did a wee bit on the Mary Wigham sampler andI put a few stitches into Lady bugs and Bumble bees .. worked some more on my Band sampler that I've designed for my group Friendly stitchers , stitched on the Needle dictionary series by Cherrywood designs , drooled over the new releases and yummy charts that are being stitched at the moment in the blog land and started to make bloom into a cushion ...
I was looking at Becky's blog yesterday after I had started Bloom and had to laugh as we have seem to have the same tastes in fabric for little pillows ... now bearing in mind that the piece of fabric was bought for making a skirt (I think) by my mum many years ago I don't think she will mind too much me using it for this and Becky lives over the pond I would love to know where she got hers from ...lol
the stroll with DH and Bentley was lovely as we went to Wentworth house please get a tissue ready now to mop up the drool when you see the photos ;) and on the way back DH and I popped into a pub we know allows poochies and looked up the garden to see a wee spaniel that was very similar to Bentley ... in fact it was almost a spit of him ..... we approved the couple who had the wee dog as said at the same time coooo they look so like each other ..... and to cut a long story short the wee dog Jeff was actually Bentley's litter brother and they don't live to far from us at all !!!! photos were taken before the camera batteries died on me .....
oooo before I forget I did take a photo of my tusal orts on the correct day and a picture of the new moon too but obviously haven't posted it till today (sorry daffy )
soooo on to the thunk bit ..... I would like to send out some RAK's over the year(s) ahead and although I have a few address's from private exchanges etc I would love to be able to send something to my regular readers and commenter's as a wee thank you for reading my blog and encouraging me to keep on stitching and waffling to you all each week ..... soooo If you like to receive something from the mouse house could you send me your snail mail address's to me (email is on the right hand side under my profile picture) I promise not to sell on to third parties even if bribed with chocolate and a cuppa heheheh
right well I suppose I ought to put you out of your misery and show you the photos ?????
mmmm are you ready ... another cuppa ???
