well as you can sort of tell from the title that the mouse house has been invaded by the white stuff falling from the skies and as I am typing this at 10.18pm exactly it is still coming down.
The good news is I got a snow day off work as my lovely boss rang me at 6.45am just as we were setting off not to bother coming in as it was so bad , soooo I had a stitchy day at home whoop whoop ...
I managed to finish off the making up of Margery's Valentine Exchange piece over on Friendly Stitchers so that is ready to go in the post this next weekend phew ... looks cute if I say so myself .... not sure if Margery does pop in to have a peek so I won't show you until I know it has arrived at her house safely :)
I have lots to tell and show sooo please bear with this wee brain of mine ...
firstly my little giftie to Pumpkin arrived safely at her house and I am pleased to say that she loves it PHEW ..lol , as I told her it was one of those charts that I saw at Harrogate that just said to stitch it for her ... so I did ..hehehe , I stitched it on 28 count white evenweave with a threadworks thread and the patter was Lizzie *Kates "Cherish yesterday " I think is the title ..lol , in fact I love it so much I may just have to do one the same for me too :)
The Travelling Pattern from Sarah moo arrived the other day from http://lanybleu.blogspot.co.uk and I have picked the colours I am going to use for it and started it this evening after tea, the colours I am using are not the recommended ones just similar colours as I didn't have any it used ..and there is too much month left at the end of the money this month heheheheh.
I must thank everyone who popped over to see Diane from http://downbysilvercreek.blogspot.co.uk she was really pleased to see you all and as a wee RAK she is sending me "Dandy Dreams" as so many came from here to there .... that is going to be my next new start once it arrives here (((HUGS)))
DJ, Babs and I are stitching as a SAL "friendship blooms " by Blue Ribbon Designs on a Tuesday night , DJ is way ahead of Babs and I ..lol so if you want to see more progress bob over there ..lol , Belinda(BRD) hasn't been well for the last few weeks so I hope she is feeling better now :)
any one want another hot chocolate ???
Master Bentley DH and I went for a lovely snowy walk in the woods on Sunday morning , we met up with some doggie friends and Bentley had a whale of a time running through the trees with his pals ....I of course took lots of photos and sorry to say they ran so fast most of them are blurry but you get the picture ... I bought some new snow boots and had to take a photo of them as they are really cosy and I didn't fall over once whoop whoop :)
I have been making sure my wee feathered friends have had lots of seeds out and fresh water every day , I managed to get a couple of photos of the blackbirds and the pigeon but my little robin didn't want his taken today :(
I am slowly catching up with every ones blogs and hope by weekend to have popped in for a cuppa with all of you .... I have booked marked the party blog blog and will be going for a sneak peek as soon as I can , as I love to meet lots of new folks :)
well I had better get the photos ready and then scoot of to bed as I shall be up early again to hopefully get into work tomorrow ....
