can you see this wee mouse boogy ...lol nahhh didn't think you could, after all you are behind my screen hahahah....
but I am sure you heard the wee shouts of delight last Friday when I put the last stitches into Kath's Hedgies ...... yes finally it is done *VBG and we went today to choose a frame for it, so that I can frame it for her too :)
I said after all the work that went into it ... it was her birthday and pif present rolled into one ...lol
soooo now I can move onto my next goodies to stitch for Catherine .... who won the tusal award from Daffy cat last year and I am stitching her a little something I've designed as a "well done" :)
well where to start this week ... today we have iced tea, cranberry and raspberry , Turkish apple and pear and guava for a change ....as in case you didn't know, here at the mouse house we are experiencing rather warm sunny weather .... I think sssshhhh that spring / early summer has arrived ..lol ...
I've had my washing out blowing in the slight breeze and smelling gorgeous and fresh when brought in dry ... total bliss .. love these lazy hazy days when the washing can get dried outside:)
oooo just having a cranberry and raspberry tea now ...
this week has been a good postie week not just for me but also Rhona.... she mentioned how lovely one of my pairs of scissors was a while back and sooo the other week I tootled off in the mouse mobile and picked her some up on my travels and they have safely arrived at her end ....
pop over and have a look at her photo as I forgot to take one .. DOH ... she also designs some lovely cute designs and mounts them on to cards so I sent some paper flowers for her too :) she designs for some of the cross stitch magazines over here too ... :)
my wee package arrived on Friday from Nataly, she picked my name for some of her wonderful counting pins and made them in my favourite colours too and I've used them already *VBG was doing a wee bit of with drawn thread work ;)
Talking of scissors again Julie asked if I had a favourite pair ... and to be honest no ... I love all my scissors and they all get used regularly apart from my Gingher's atm, as I am stitching the Needle and thread by LHN for them to rest in and have the fob attached so the don't get used for something other than stitching ... and I need to make a wee fob for those cute Kelmscott ones from Laurie too :)
Sally and I have been emailing back and forth and we have decided to do the Summer splendour as a SAL on Wednesday s ... I haven't touched this since I started it back in January (due to hedgies ..lol) and thought it would be nice if I could join her and stitch it together :)
I succumbed last night to a wee bit of shopping of charts from the sampler girl in her sale and got My Everything and A Turn in the Garden from her and its all Niina's fault as she told me while I snuck on FB that she had a sale on .....
Last Thursday MIL and I went out for our mothers day treat to Wentworth Garden Centre and had a stroll round the plants and the gardens and also had something to eat there too ....(Kate don't look too closely I had the one with the least calories heheheh) so I shall let you have a stroll round there with me too later ....
Bentley continues to grow and be a snuggle bear as every morning he comes into my bedroom ... dives on the bed and snuggles up to me and falls asleep at the side of me until I get up ... He hasn't got in to the pond yet but helps me every day feed the fish ...lol ....I think I am going to train him as my support dog as he helps me with the washing as well ;)
well I think you will be needing a top up by now sooo here you go while I load the photos up for you .
