I have been told that I must point out a very serious error here on my blog ...lol
Bentley is MY GIRLS dog .... I am the grannie and have no legal ownership of him heheheh (but I do get all the morning cuddles ;) DD1 has been reading and moaning for the last few updates that you all think that he is mine,all mine .... heheheheh
soooo I am being
onto the fun stuff ... grab a cuppa .. biscuits are in the tin, help yourselves ...
right are you sitting comfortably ????
well I managed to frog the letters I had done one up on the February Cottage sal by CCN .... you would think that by now I could count one up ???? and I have stitched all of the house and have only got a couple of hours more to do on it then I can start March's ....followed by April etc etc etc ....
I sat down on Wednesday night to do the Summer splendor sal with Sally at home as I couldn't get any petrol due to folks panic buying and had just got a few stitches in when DD2 asked if I could go with her to walk Bentley at the back of the canal as it was dropping dark by this time .... sooo I grabbed my coat and stick and off we went ..... things were going fine until just after we met another doggy friend and then WHOOPS !!!! as I put my foot down onto some loose stones/twigs etc Bentley pulled and I heard something go POP in my right foot and my left calf at the same time .... well I yelled ouch rather loudly .... and yup that's all I yelled ..lol and couldn't move for a few moments while I gingerly checked for serious damage ....... then tried putting weight on said foot etc and found although painful was ok to get me back home as we were in the middle of nowhere ... good job I use a stick normally ..lol
sooo the upshot is .. I didn't get as far with my stitching as I wanted too ...and I've a lovely photo of my ankle to show you (look away if squeamish later ..lol) I had to use my sticks around the house for the next few days but I am now back to "normal" (no witty comments to that please ...lol) in fact I think I actually put something back in place as I haven't had any pain from said ankle for days.. touch wood :)
we had some glorious weather after that so I was able to catch up with all the mousely duties of washing etc and sneaked some stitching in between ... did a wee bit more on DJ's present will show a sneak peak ...as I don't think you can tell what it is going to be, once it has been stitched up from it ....
I managed to get Kath's hedgehogs framed for her and another one she wanted doing and I even laced the back for this one as had enough fabbie to enable me to do it and pinned it first ... oooo was really impressed with myself even if it is me thinking it heheheheh
I've started Catherine's tusal gift and it looks lovely ...well I think soo ...lol
did some more on my Band sampler design with drawing thread and re weaving .... I just love it, find it very therapeutic heheheh... seen 27 different versions of it and they all look fabulous :) well done girls :) and there is still more to come in :)
and I have been doing some more designing too ... watch this space ...... :)
well I must say that on Saturday the postie came and it wasn't for me from Niina but for DD1 ..... dd is a great fan of Moomins and Niina sent her some lovely gifts and yummies for her and really made her day / weekend ...lol and she is still smiling folks !!!!! (this is very rare indeed..lol)
my postie goodies came yesterday from Anita's little stitches my mothers day prezzie from DD1 and a few wee extras heheheh ... as you do ....
ok having realised this is going to be another long waffle the kettle has gone back on heheheheh .... hot cross bun any one ????
The garden centre at Wentworth is gorgeous and one of the best ones around the mouse house area ... I actually didn't buy anything this time which is unusual but I haven't had the time or the get up and go, to go out into my wee garden and tidy it up ready for something new .... so instead I shall show you something I got from there last year ... and the colours are just soooo me ...
I have sat and thunk while I have been stitching that I don't think I shall get any where near finishing the crazies this year sooo am not going to get stressed over it at all, full stop ...lol
I want to get my RAKs done too and other stuff soo there it is in black and white ....
talking of black and white .. our wee man has been losing his puppy teeth this last couple of days and is now nicked named gummie ...lol I just had to take a photo to show you ....these ones I got yesterday and his other fang came out this morning :) and he lost another a few days ago ... soo bless his cotton paws he is feeling rather sorry for himself and wants lots of cuddles .....and seeing as I am around ;)
I must mention while I remember that Kath is having a bloggaverseary give away if you want to pop over :)
also please nip over to Ellens blog too and read her entry for this link .....I think it is very important that you all do so ......
well if I waffle any more this will turn into a novel ...lol so I had better show the photos etc there isn't any cake photos this week I am afraid :(
