Well I have been stitching and finishing .... I have managed to get both of my exchanges one for Kate and one for my secret partner from "stitched with love blog" done today ... so I am a wee happy mouse .... all they need now is wrapping and sending and I am three weeks early whoop whoop ...lol ... well they will have to wait until the official posting time as I have Harrogate to go to before then .. just in case there is something to pop in with them .... sorry girls ...lol
I have stitched up the "stitchers heart" but not added the rick rack yet ....finally made up "Fa la la " by LHN into a wee cushion ... made up an ornie for a friend ;) and got 3.5 motifs done of the casting a spell by BBD ... didn't make it done in time but got a great start for next year heheheheh.
I must have a wee brag here ... well not often I do this ...lol but Hazel from the Friendly Stitchers entered her Dawn of Spring in to her local WI competition and came first with a gold star .... the picture is on our home page .. click on the link and it should take you there ... congratulations to Hazel for her gorgeous rendition of it and for getting the top prize with it too :)
The weather here at the mouse house has steadily got colder and the leaves have all turned to gorgeous copper hues , DD and I took Master Bentley to the woods yesterday as it was a nice morning and took advantage and got a few photos of Bentley in the woods ... can you believe that he is one tomorrow ... managed to get some cute action shots of him playing in the leaves .....
I have been busy sorting out my charts and threads and fabbie ready for the wee list I want to get from Harrogate ...(only three weeks away now whoop whoop) and having noticed I have grown in numbers of followers ... waves small paw at you all ... hope you are enjoying the cuppa and cake ... when I get back I think I shall have a wee give away as a thank you :) so please keep an eye out for the grand announcement ...lol
talking of which Heather is having a wee giveaway too ...and also if you want to join in the fun Nancy at the Victorian Motto Shop is having a big giveaway all through December ....apparently if you mention me I will get ten more entries .... well having bought some of her threads and goodies I know how nice they are and wouldn't mind having some more ... soooo if you don't mind ;0)...lol
I had a brain wave the other day .... yes really I did... and decided what I was going to make for Christmas presents for folks .... sooo today I have had a wee play and voilà the brain wave worked sooo I am one happy mouse and it also means I can send more gifts out than if I stitched them this time ....
hmmmmm what else has happened .... ohhh yeah we had a wee Halloween party with DD1's friends sooo I will show you some of the decorations that went up ....
other than that is has been very busy at work as we have had two inductions back to back and another one starting next week .... hence why the lack of posts .... at least now my obligations have been done so I can spend some time chilling and going through my stash pile :)
ok I think I have waffled enough heheheh ,.... kettle has gone back on while I show you the photos :)
