COOO its tusal time and some thing to show :)

 Hi every one :) cooo these TUSALs fair come round quick ...lol ...Kettle has just boiled and the cups are ready .... I have some choccie biccies for every one :)
well where can I start mmmmm when I last squeaked to you I had a brain wave .... not often that happens heheh but it worked sooo I have been busy sewing away on my machine making some little presents for folks ... and they are sewww pretty even if I say so my self ... in fact I love them that much I made my self one heheheh ....
 you can tell how busy I have been by the threads in the Tusal Jar modelled by my wee sewing machine :)
November TUSAL
My lovely postie has been bringing me lots of goodies too :) first of all my Halloween exchange ornament from the Friendly Stitchers finally made it across the pond ... my partner was Shaunterria and she stitched me spooky :) I can show you what I sent her now too ....
My name was then pulled out of Junes hat and a gorgeous wee Christmas ornament was sent to the mouse house ... June stitched the LHN design over one .... you can see how small and perfect it is as Master Bentley decided to enjoy the vanilla scent that it smells of just as I was taking a picture ...lol, in the package was a lovely stitched card of a field mouse and a book mark with a mouse on it too ... seems to be a theme here hahahahah ... she has also sent a Christmas card but I am waiting  a wee while until I open it :)
I was also picked to win a Christmas ornament from Andrea  and that should be turning up any day at the mouse house too :)
I got some charts from the bay of evil ..lol but haven't taken a photo of them DOH !!! I won BBD's small token and I have some others on their way too :)
and I have just found out today that I won Heathers blog give away .... whoop whoop :) six wonderful LHN charts that I don't have and want to stitch ....
and on top of that  there is something on its way to the mouse house via another Heather  apparently she saw something while out shopping and it said it had to be sent to me ... soooo I am rather giddy and hopping up and down waiting for the deliverys heheheh.... Of course I will show you all once they arrive ;0)
Work has been very very busy again with another induction taking place this week as we are expanding very nicely :) but I am counting down the days until next Friday as that is ...... HARROGATE  whoop whoop ... its the annual Knitting and Stitching show held in the International Halls ... there are a few of us meeting up and staying as usual for the weekend and quite frankly I can't wait .... I am going to count up my pennies from the running away fund heheheh and going to do my small list ;) of things that I require /want / need etc etc etc ....and I am taking the camera and hope to record a few photos for you all to drool over :)
I think I need another brew after all this ..... care to join ?? I shall get the photos I can show you 
spooky from Shaunterria 

Master Bentley approves June ..lol

showing you all my cute side heheheh

all the goodies from June

Boo Mansion by Blue Ribbon Designs stitched by me 
the back of the ornament 

look carefully you can see it is made of rulers


I forgot to show you the ornament hanger I bought the other week ... I thought it was sooo cute and just perfect for hanging my ornaments on ,,, it is made out of rulers :) and I just had to have it :)
I think that this is all my news she says having a good old think .... apart from having my 6 weekly stabs in the back (acupuncture ..lol) just in time so that I should be able to "run" hahahah round Harrogate ....
hope every one is as well as can be expected ... take care one and all and happy stitching / crafting ... squeak to you all soon :) love mouse xxxxxxx
