the kettle is on for you all and I've got some nice choccie biccies for you all too :)
Well life in the mouse house is settling down to a sort of routine with us all passing each other like ships in the night and leaving messages in various places like "to do " lists ..lol ..... and most importantly I have managed to get some wee bit of stitching in most nights to boot too ..... you can tell from the TUSAL orts that I have been doing an itsy bitsy bit .... and I've posted them early as not sure about getting back on to do them on the 19th as it might be stitching at the mouse house this week :)
have I said I love my postie ...lol I have received a lovely RAK from Shirlee which smells divine when you squeeze it ....the other week just after I last blogged ..., my July cottage arrived safely too and also today I got my blog win from Mary Ann Cardinal winter by LHN :) thank you for picking me :)
OOOO yes DJ's piece I stitched for her arrived safely too PHEW :)
Over on Friendly Stitchers we are doing a Christmas / winter in July along with an exchange and I have finished the stitching for my partner and started on the one for me .. can't show you them just yet but will do as soon as I can :)
I have worked on the Sal I am doing with Sally :) and I am really enjoying this piece even if it is taking me ages *pesky work heheheh and looking forward to doing some more on it tomorrow too :)
I have done some more on my Dawn of Spring so I shall show you that bit too .... only two more parts left ... it has simply flown by and every one is simply gorgeous that has been stitched by my group ladies :) and I am so proud of them for doing stitches that they wouldn't have normally tackled and doing a wonderful job to boot too :) and even adapting it to make it even more personal as well :)
sluurrpppp ahhhhh much better now where was I .. ahhh yes ....
I really must apologise for not getting to say hello to every one on their blog updates .... I am trying to get to a few each night sooo I will get there in the end honest :)
Don't forget it is Hermitting weekend this weekend :) go to Joyze's blog to sign up and join in the fun :)
soooo onto Whitby and the all important stash haul ...lol
On Sunday Chris , Kath , Iris and I went on a wonderful day trip to Whitby and the weather was kind to us and the sun shone all day with a slight breeze and the smell of the sea and sand wafted along the prom..... mingled with the sound of the sea gulls as they flew over our heads .
We wandered around all the shops oooing and aahhing over the wares and I found a new lovely wee mouse which I just had to buy ... along with some presents for the girls and the DH ...... and then I went into the market hall to the patchwork/embroidery / cardcraft shop and had a slight ???? stash haul on the patchwork fabric and some ribbon along with a cute pair of lime green polka dot scissors which just called my name :)
There was so much to drool over I was lucky to get away with what I did heheheh ... I could have had sooooo much more .... you all know that feeling ;0 but I resisted ...
soooo I had better show you the goodies , the tusal etc etc while I pop the kettle back on for you all ....
