I've just put the kettle on for us all and there are plenty of biscuits to go round as DH and I went shopping on Sunday afternoon after picking my new mouse mobieell up .... I am now the proud owner (well driver ..lol) of a Nissan Qashqui 12 plate in black ..... and it has a glass roof too amongst other goodies ......need to think of a name for the new car too any suggestions ????
we tootled to the other side of York as DH wanted to go and pick something up from Pocklington ..... it was quite scary driving as every where was flooded and the rain was bucketing down ... we went over a few bridges where the water was level with the road !!!!!
After last weeks wonderful weekend of stitching ..... this week has seen a finish or two and working on a few projects through out the week :)
I finished putting together a wee Rak that is going out all being well in the post tomorrow and also Catherines goodies for being the Tusal winner for last year too .... just need to pack and label :) and wade out to the post office heheheh
I put the last stitches into Needle and thread by LHN last night and started the wee scissor fob that goes with it too ...I have been thinking how I want to finish the bed spread for my ginghers ( I do have the wee bed that goes with it ) and want to do it slightly different from the finishing that LHN did :)
I've worked some more on part three of my Dawn of spring sampler and have almost finished this section :) only 10 more days girls till you get it heheheh ;) and last night I actually dug out my "stitchers book " that I designed last year and worked on that .... yup I worked on a UFO heheheh ..... you will have to look closely to see what I have done .... ;0
I did do a bit on the Summer Splendor sal with Sally on Wednesday night and she has now probably finished it as she wanted to get it done before she went in for her op .... we will most likely work together on something else on her road to recovery :) we had bandied about the LHN and Shakespeare's peddler duo :)
On Tuesday the post man was really nice to me and brought me a wee prezzie from Rhona she had been out shopping and spied something that was just perfect :) a wonderful tea pot pin cushion in my colours .... well I just had to have a photo with it .....*VBG ... I actually opened one of my recent world of cross stitching no 189 and there was Rhona :) she designs for a lot of the magazines :) I'm well connected you know hahahaha......
Well my postie has just brought me a lovely letter from DJ and the May cottage from LHN inside ... sooo I will just have to put that kettle on again and have a good read ;) any one else want another one ?????
whoops better put up some photos for you ..lol ...
