A little stitching and lots of finishing :)

Hellooooooo ... hope everyone is well and wraped up warm in this brrrr weather we are having not to mention got their welliebobs handy with the amount of rain we have had today here at the mouse house .... sooo please pull up your chair grab your brew and your cookies and I shall begin :)
I can finally show you the exchange and gifts I have sent out as both have now been received phew ...
I have also been busy stitching and finished the Promise of Spring by Silver Creek Samplers , started another wee christmas ornie as well and worked a bit more on my Lucy Boston EPP quilt as well as getting the first and part of the second row done on my birthday quilt .... made a stocking and just had to mention yesterday I had a flurry of finishes to boot ....
two bags 
two wall hangings
one candle wrap
one cushion
one framed peice 
one almost finished wall hanging ....lol 
at 11.30pm I decided I had better stop before I went bozeyed ...lol
and I have taken photos of them all to show you  woooo ...
Last time I blogged I mentioned I had been on a mushroom fix ... of the taking photos type ..lol and we have also had a super moon and I got some fab shots of it too ....
The mushroom fixed started on one of my pootles with Master Bentley when I found one that was a gorgeous red with white sprinkles on it ... and then I kept spotting others which I don't know the names of, but look of the non eating varieties ... DH says the ones growing from trees that look rubbery are ones that you can but taste like old slippers ... i told him I would take his word for it ahahahahah
Thursday I am off for the annual trip to the BIG Harrogate Show along with Chris and Roz for day one .. they are going back the same day, but I am staying with Family in Harrogate till Saturday ... then DH and I are off on Sunday for a few days in York to celebrate our 28th Wedding Anniversay ....Master Bentley is being left in charge ...
Cooo I think I had better get some photos up as I have just seen the time and its zzzzzz nap time soon ...

Great post, Mouse, I for one, love the mushroom pics and the bird with the yellow breast - stunning! And double stunning are the super moon pics. Wow! You have so many great finishes - I cannot possible choose a favourite, although I do love your exchange piece and your two Silver Creek pieces very much.

Brigitte said...

Wow, such a lot of finishes, stitched and sewn ones. You must have been so busy :)
I particularly love those bird pictures.

Robin said...

Your photos are so beautiful. Love th mushrooms but love the birds even more.

Goodness you have been busy. Enjoy you trip and I am sure Bentley will keep all secure until your return. Happy Anniversary!

Vickie said...

Oh my goodness Michelle! Your photography skills are EXPLODING! Love the mushrooms! You have inspired me with the LHN ornnament. I had been eyeing that one up in the old JCS issue, but was not wild about the green. I am thinking pink. ;)

Angela P said...

Lovely pics Mouse! You've been so busy. I love the LK box finish :)

Love the pictures -that super moon is fantastic!!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Nice to see the quilt starting to grow! Love the wall hangings too. That's a nice way to display a finished piece.
The photos are great, especially the Super Moon shots.
Have a great time at Harrogate.

Bea said...

Love the mushroom pictures - what a variety of colours and shapes. My question is "who ate old slippers in the first place so they could compare them to other things?". The birds are SO pretty and wonderful super moon shots.

Loving your finishes. Haven't tackled a wall hanging myself, but maybe it's time I took a deep breath and plunged in.

Great selection on finishes, your sewing machine has been in overdrive.
Love the quilted hexi's, they looks fab.
I enjoyed seeing the mushrooms, isn't mother nature wonderful.
Have fun in Harrogate, happy anniversary to you and DH.

Love all the photos and beautiful Bentley.
Enjoy your week hugs.

Lovely finishes and WIPs. Lucky you getting such good photos of the Super Moon. It was too cloudy with us to see it. I'm sure you'll be able to resist buying anything at Harrogate (NOT!)

Sarah in Stitches said...

Wow, you've been incredibly productive! I love your wall hangings. Lovely starts on the quilt too!

Maggee said...
