Gosh my 240th post... for want of a better title

Well helloooo peeps ... the kettle is on and I have cake ... and cookies and all sorts of nice goodies for you to nibble on as you pull up your chair ....
Time has a habit of moving swiftly on and not stopping for no mouse ....I can't believe that it is almost Spring ... today is simply gorgeous here at the mouse house and I wish I could go out for a long walk and enjoy it but unfortunately that is not possible atm .... last Wednesday my poor mouse mobile and I were involved in a "minor" bump at a roundabout on the way to work .... at first it seemed that there was only a wee bit of damage and I was shakey but ok ... till about a few hours later and the pain kicked in ... resulting in a trip to the Dr's to say that I have got whiplash and damage to my sciatica nerve down my right side following the incident and my little brum brum panels are moved down to the right away from the car !!!!!
So now I have to go to see an independent consultant and have physio etc etc etc ... the plus side is I have some time off to recover and hopefully get some stitching done in between the naps that my body seems to think I need
I have gone from having three speeds of moving ... stop , slow and getting there to two .. stop and even slower than before ... I can't even get around the house without my stick :( as the pain and my legs giving way are not good ... ho hum .... hopefully things will improve and I shall be back up and running again ( well a wee mouse can dream can't she )
but on the stitching front all is well thank goodness hehehehe ....
I have received word that my Stitchers Day exchange piece has arrived at Lynda's and I can now show you ... I am presuming that my other one to Judith has got there seeing as its nearer but not heard anything from her at all ... so I will show it to you as I don't think she reads my blog ....and mine from Melissa has arrived and it is gorgeous a wee tin to hold a tiny pair of scissors and needles ... very useful when going to Chris's for our stitching nights ... won't lose them then
I have also been working on my 2013 RR and can almost see the end of the tunnel as well as on Gillies RR ......
Our local craft shop is closing down as the owners are retiring sooo I have been helping her out with buying some bits and bobs insert here (material, threads and ribbons ) and shan't need to buy any more for a long time ... well with a good percentage off it would have been rude not too hahahah and I did have to fight to get some of it as Roz and Chris got there before me ..and nearly bought it all before I got there ...they complement my new purchases that I have got  ( see photos below
My youngest DD has finally got the doors open to her Dessert Parlour and is now busy building up her cliental .. I got took there on Saturday and just had to sample a banoffee waffle ... and it was delicious .... my diet went out the window that morning heheheh ... (btw lost 1 stone 8.5 lbs and counting )
Lainey sent me two gorgeous squares for my quilt which I will be starting soon she says paws crossed ... she stitched me Bentley , which apparently gave her nightmares getting him right ... and my birth month flower a carnation ..
I have to get all the squares together and do a fabric toss  so see what will work with them all :)  I do have an idea how I would like it to look sooo watch this space ....
okkk I had better get some photos uploaded for you .... another brew on the way .....
