The stitched with love exchange has been posted to my partner and hopefully she will love it ... my birthday give away to Calamity Jr and Dani have been posted out today as well as a RAK to Lesleyanne from the Random Acts of Kindness blog group , my partner in the stitchers day exchange over on Friendly Stitchers as received my piece to her , so I can show you that too.... not to mention I have finished off all but
SOOOOO now I can relax (well once I know they have all arrived safely ..lol) and do something for me now heheheh .... oooo talking of which the kettle is on and we have some biccies or hot cross buns tonight :) I have worked on "Dandy Dreams " on stitching night with the girls but haven't done any work on my SAL with DJ and Babs this last week or two but that should be remedied this weekend all being well ...lol
I have received some lovely goodies in the post too .... a beautifully painted heart shaped box with some choccies and a thread in it from Peggy which didn't quite arrive in time for Valentines due to postie error :( my usual one wasn't at work that day ....
I got a wonderful wee pillow from lainey with a mouse sticking out of a tea cup with the words "Kettles on" on it heheheh along with some lovely threads and fabric in my favourite colours :) which was a belated birthday present ... don't you just love it when your birthday is extended :)..... and then I received a wee pin pillow "tis better to give than receive" by La d Da and some bunny scissors ... a girl can never have tooo many scissors hehehehe from Lynn from the RAK blog group ... it has the cutest backing fabric which is perfect for it :)
HMMMMM what else have I been up too ??? ahhhh yes got my new glasses so now can see every one ...lol *waves small paw to them at the back heheheh ....
I went out to the woods again the other weekend when it was a gorgeous day and took some more photos with my new camera and DH and I are going away tomorrow to a place near Bakewell and hopefully going to Chatsworth house too ... sooo watch out battery charging for the camera as we squeak heheheheh....
It was Mothering Sunday here in the UK yesterday and I got thoroughly spoilt by my DD's , I got some wee straighteners for my fringe and some Thornton's chocolates and a lovely bag with a stitchy organiser inside and some gorgeous flowers in a tea cup and saucer arrangement and I was treated to an Indian meal too :)
Today I seem to recall is TUSAL time and boy do I have a large amount of threads this month ... just proves how much my wee needles have been flying heheheheh
so while I refill the kettle for you all I shall bob on a few photos for you to oooooo and ahhhhh at :)
