soooo the time has flown as we have been having lots of fun around the mouse house ....
Firstly there was the jubilee weekend where I sat and stitched the next few parts on my Dawn of Spring SAL :) Part four went out on Sunday and they are all looking gorgeous :)
then on Jubilee Tuesday that week DH and I escaped to the country with Master Bentley to take him paddling .... we went to Hutton le Hole , were we spent many a weekend taking over the museum there when we were in the Sealed Knot many years ago ..... the weather was fine but a bit cold and once Bentley got used to the stream he loved it and it was funny watching him paddle ..... we had a wander around the village and went to look at the craft shops and found the perfect one for every one ...... (just wait until you see the photo ;)
Wednesday I had a happy dance as I finished DJ's picture whoop whoop and it is now on its way to her on a wing and a prayer :) I decided as I was on a roll on finishing things I got out my cut and snip scissor fob from the Needle and thread LHN chart and proceeded to make a good inroad into it ..... some time around 11.30 pm that night I realised I should have been doing the SAL with Sally eeeekkkkkk .... I tried to put some stitches into it the next day but I felt sooooo guilty it wasn't done on the right day I couldn't continue !!!!!! will show the photo of my effort ..lol
swiftly moving on with another cuppa .....
I decided it was time to get March's cottage finished by CCN .... well I stitched and I stitched at the weekend and boy .....for a small piece 5 x5 it certainly took ages to do but was worth it in the end as I finished and started April's just as June's dropped through my door ....lol. so that is a little bit further on phew :)
this Monday I made a card for June as it was her birthday the next day and I am pleased to say that it turned up on time .... I am in the middle of stitching her something so that her birthday lasts that wee bit longer ;) she does know this btw ..lol and while I was on a roll did the floss toss for Pappilions Around the world in eighty stitches ..... and that's as far as I got hahahah
and on Tuesday (this is the sun , sea and sand bit ..lol) DH DD2 Master Bentley and I drove to Sunny Blackpool to go and spend the day with my Dad so that he got to see Mr B and also my new car ..lol I drove there and the traffic although heavy was steady away and we got there exactly on time according to the sat nav :)
Bentley wowed my dad with his good behaviour and his cute ways ;) We took him for a walk on the sands and got him to see the sea for the first time .... while he loved the sand the sea was a different matter ...lol he didn't want anything to do with the wet stuff ..... DH while walking and watching the dog took a slight graceful fall into a hole that some one had dug and then Mr B decided to make it that wee bit bigger .. he came out covered in sand but with a grin on his face ..lol
Dad treated us to some ice cream from Notriannies ice cream parlour on the front ... sooo I had to take photos to show you YUMMMMMMM .... we had a walk down the prom and went into the South Pier amusements and spent the princely sum of £1.00 on the two penny machines and had lots of fun with them ..... out side there was a doughnut booth and I couldn't resist getting some hot sugary doughnuts to share with you all .... I took some photos of them being cooked too :)
We had a lovely day and got back quite late ... I switched on the comp to see what every one had been up too and found out ...... I had won Belinda's of Blue Ribbon Designs fame , competition on FB..... WOOOOO HOOOOOOO :)
ooooo did this mouse do a happy wiggle as the charts I had won were all ones I hadn't got too .....
I was still beaming the next day when the postie brought me my goodies I had ordered from Karen at http://www.wasatchneedlecraft.com/ in her sale ... the Family Sampler LHN and February stockings BBD ....
and then the phone rang and I got invited to an interview on Monday for an admin assistant soooo fingers crossed third time lucky :)
ooo also got my results from the xray .... no acute injury to the bone .....:)
well you had better get another cuppa while you browse through the photos .....
