I have been a rather busy mouse ... both with the needle and with my craft room and I can now show you pictures whoo hooo but ....
Let me back track a few weeks ..... at the beginning of the month it was DD2's birthday and as I was stuck as to what to get her I took her to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park .... now bearing in mind all the wonderful photos that Sally has taken I thought, wow I should get some wonderful shots of the animals .... please note the should .... I know it was early when we got there and it wasn't the brightest of days but really ALLLLL the lions and tigers were all asleep !!!!! and in such places it was hard to get a good shot with my camera zoom and boy did I try ...lol ... the giraffes and the monkeys were awake thank goodness .. I will have to go back on a sunnier day and with a better camera methinks ....
I will show you the best of a bad bunch ...lol
I managed to get my exchange piece off to Ann on time but she hasn't received it as yet so I can't show you that at the moment but I made a wee birth record pillow for one of my work colleagues, it was a secret for her and I was stitching on it while "daddy sitting" one Saturday in August when he was on the main ward , my dad loved it and did see it finished but not made up .... but now I can show you finished, but not made up ,as I forgot to take a photo of it made up DOHHHH I was sooo pleased I had managed to get it finally finished and on its way ..lol I am also pleased to say that she loves it Phew ... it was adapted from La D Da's Gabrielle Rose chart as it was for some one else not me ...
I am also stitching on Scarlett House Jingle all the way and have just got the J and the I and the rest of the snowflakes to finish ... the photo was taken yesterday and I have done more since then .... it is being stitched on Sparklies fabric Ocean Depths with I think the right colours charted ... keep forgetting to look ....
Master Bentley had a photo shoot the other day , DD2's friend has set up her own photography business and wanted to try out some new back drops and asked DD if she could borrow him to try them out ... well will a wee bit of persuasion * think yummies .... he had lots of photos taken and I just love the ones she has shown us as a taster ....
The day's are getting chillier and I wanted to get my room as near as finished as it could be atm so that I can have a wee fire in the range (hopefully ) over Christmas..... watch this space ..lol sooo I have been mousing away at my stash and putting things away in their correct places and getting rid of excess packaging .... using my boxes etc finally .... I am really happy with it soo far ... there is a wee bit more work to be done down there but I can stitch and sew now to my hearts content in peace and quiet and have guests there too :)
sooo please form an orderly queue heheheheh
ok I had better go and pop the kettle back on and sort the photos out for you :)
