Well I have had an exciting postie week since the other day ... I have had two parcels from over seas ... one from DJ who has sent me a beautifully stitched and beaded ornament of a mouse and a key ring that has me in fits of giggles when you press the "press here" .... I wish I could record it for you ... it says "hey you I LIKE you ....I rrreallly LLLLL Like you " with the rolled R's and L's ...lol
and the other from Ann who has sent me a gorgeous crocheted snowflake which will be kept out all year just because I can ... heheheh... I also got a RAK from Heather which I plum forgot to mention and show you so I shall rectify that as well and Michelle sent me a beautiful handmade calender which in the tidying up before guests came on on Christmas day has got put in the craft room some where under the archaeological layers ... so once I find it again I will take a photo ... thank you girls sooo much :)
Well as the want to do, is at this time of year, is a recap of how the year went ... on the whole it was pretty good with many highs and the odd whoops ....
Kidney stones and a cold/ cough are the odd whoops.....
the highs well ...
I got to meet Stuart Hillard a few times and had a class with him...started to make a quilt... and made him a wee present ....I started to crochet again and am doing quite well to say the least ... it isn't perfect but hey its just me :)... I had a couple of trips to the Nimble Thimble in Wales and then there was a couple of trips to Harrogate or three ...lol ... sent out a few RAKs and won some wonderful blog winsand RAKS too ... still working my way through the charts :) and I have managed 22 finishes ... which for a wee mouse that works full time I am impressed with :)
My Goals for the New Year ... well lets just say... hopefully to stitch more, do some more quilting , visit more blogs to say hello and move into the new mouse house with my bigger craft room, which still needs finishing off ...lol and to be as healthy as I can be :)
And this I wish for you all too ... to stitch more, to chat more with friends and to be as healthy as you can be :)
I shall leave you now to bring in the New Year however you celebrate .... I have a cuppa (I do have some cider to toast in the New Year for later chilling in the fridge) , a toffee crunch Chocolate Orange and my stitching .... what more could a wee mouse want ...lol
