well come gather round and pull up a pew and grab your cuppa , a coffee or a brew ... along with a cookie to nibble on too ....
Sooo if you can cast your minds back to the last post we were going to have the window fitted in out bedroom well it has finally been done ... redecorated and a brand new carpet in there , on the stairs and also some vinyl in the bathroom sooo my wee pad is looking a lot posher not to mention a lot lighter as we have got rid of lots of clutter ... the bedroom still has to be finished off ... I can't find a pink ornament to go on my window bottom eeeekkkkk ....
Well on top of that news we are now also in the process of buying an new mouse house .... essentially down grading but its like the tardis ... small on the outside and bigger on the inside ...lol and my craft room will be a lot bigger and hopefully once sorted lighter too ... I can't wait ... I will update you as soon as I can ... heheheh
Ok I suppose I ought to waffle about stitching ..lol The competition run by Gaynor of StitcherAnon fame kept me on tender hooks all week ..lol and ..... my rendition came second WHOOP ... Christina came first ... not sure of her blog or if she has one as there was no link to her name ...so she may of come through FaceBook .... soo in coming second I get to choose five charts from Gaynor designs .... I now just have to decide which ones I want on my final list ... oooo the decisions ..lol
On the stitching front I do have a finish ... on Sunday I managed to finish Miss Peepers by LHN ... stitched on some Sparklies fabric slightly rosey I think with the recommended threads and I think it has turned out rather cute :) not sure on how I am going to finish it sooooo ....
I have decided that I am going to carry a wee chart and stuff to stitch it with in my handbag as I seem to have got more stitching done that way just recently than in my stitching chair at home as DD's business has been going very well and DH and I and a few other of the crew are still working hard for her ... (we did go to see the consultant and she has Scoliosis of the spine , she also has to go for an MRI scan to check for damage to the lower vertebrae too and to confirm the Sherman's again too ) so it is all fun here at the mouse house ..lol
I also have managed to get a wee bit done on the "bushel and a peck " by La D Da sooo all is not lost ..lol
The weather here has decided to be kind to us and given us a few warm days and boy has spring exploded ... the daffodils have opened and are nodding gracefully in the breeze and the crocus are opening really wide to sun bathe before closing up at bed time ... and my cherry blossom tree has sprung into flower almost over night .... and the worst thing ... is seeing folks in shorts eeekkkk ...lol ....you can see the birds starting to make their nests and chirping away merrily to each other from veryyyy early on .... and I managed to hang some washing out to dry on the line *VBG
soooo what else have I done hmmmm thinking .... we went out last week to celebrate my friend Wendy's birthday ... and had a lovely time ...and not next weekend but the weekend after which also happens to be hermitting whoop ... Ally is coming down from her pad to stay with Frances and I am going too sooooo its shall be lots of tea drinking , laughing and I hope a wee bit of stitching thrown in for good measure too ...lol
well I think I have waffled enough for tonight ... I shall go and pop the kettle on again for seconds while I sort out the photos for you :)
