Hi every one .... hope every one is well and enjoying this heatwave we are having .... all I can say is I'M MELLLLLLTIIIINNNGGG .... in my bestest wicked witch of the West voice ..lol...... Heat and I don't mixed as I go pink across my nose and whiskers ...... heheheheh . I have got lots of cooooool drinks in and the usual mixture for those that want tea coffee etc etc and if you look carefully I have put some goodies out on the work top near the microwave ;)
☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼talking of Whiskers .... two sets of them traveled safely across the pond from Barb's talented DD Mrs Woolpets ... they settled in straight away being nosy and meeting up with some of the others in the craft room ......They need some names sooo could you please think of some and who ever gets their names picked will get a wee giftie as a thank you :)
Apparently today is TUSAL day sooo I took the photo this morning which is next to the project I got out to do a wee bit more work on which is the cherrywood designs dictionary series "Scissors " I am doing "Needles" too but have got further on with that one when I was working on it before soooo its scissors turn :)
This last week has been toooo hot to really do much stitching but I managed to get some more done on Curly Q and also the Melicent Turner which I will show you later on and also the Needleworker too .....I succumbed to the latest Mystery Chart by LHN and that arrived this week as well , just need to over lock the fabbie and get round to starting it ... hmmmm not sure where to squeeze it in but ......
On to some exciting news now .... the other year 2011 to be exact .... my name was put down for the travelling pattern that came from Peggy organised by Jennifer and was to follow a list of stitchers and finally get back to Peggy along with a wee book that peeps wrote in what they stitched the pattern on and with .... well somewhere last summer it got sent on and then nothing, nada, Zilch .... I and Cucki kept in touch as she was the stitcher before me and we gave up hope by spring this year that it would turn up ..... but you should never give up hope as ...... it has turned up and been stitched by Cucki and is now on its way to the mouse house ..... well I don't know who was more excited to hear this me or Peggy ...lol so I am know stalking the postie ......again heheheheh
It has even been to hot to take Master Bentley on his usual Sunday Morning pootle route soo taking pity on him and me we cut up the middle of the woods ... and because I didn't have my camera on me .... there were two yes two woodpeckers on the same tree and it would have been a fantastic shot AAAAGGGHHHHHH !!! wasn't impressed ..lol ...
Sunday saw us helping to celebrate a relatives 40th Wedding Anniversary at a lovely hotel near the mouse house .... we ended up all sitting out side on the terrace while the wee ones played on the grass nearby, they had some lovely flowers and one lone Foxglove in all its glory ....
