Well I have been a bit busy on the stitching front ,having finished Honeybee Sampling by LittlehouseNeedleworks, just need to find some charms to put on it before finishing finishing it , done a wee bit more on the linen and thread sal and started two RR's one for DJ which is a Erica Michaels strawberry with a teeny tiny stitched alphabet in the middle of it ..over one on 36 count eeeekkkk .... but it was lovely to do once I got started on it ... and also I have been building snowmen for Chris on her RR ...
I must admit I had to pop the strawberry into a hoop to stitch on it which is something I don't normally do and I have succumbed into putting the linen and threads SAL onto a frame as it was beginning to hurt my hands and my shoulder stitching on it soooo hopefully this will see more stitching time on it ....
I took a road trip yesterday to Doncaster and met up with Jennifer my "wicked Step mother " as she calls herself ..lol for some catch up time and some retail therapy as she was staying over for a few days ... I ended up getting some new clothes and was really surprised that I was getting into a smaller size than I have in years ... the diet is defo working ... I have lost 3stone 8.5lbs ... which is pretty good and would like to lose at least another 2 stone on top of this but we shall see how I look nearer that target ..lol ... I am doing Slimming World and loving it :)
Today Master Bentley and I went on a pootle and because I didn't have anything else to come back to apart from lunch at MIL, I took a wee detour to go and see some Donkeys ....I have seen them everyday on the drive back from the morning pootle and today decided I was going to get some photos ... well not only was there donkeys but also a wee pot bellied pig, a large sow and some other ponies and some baby coots... my first of the year ... the donkeys came over and let me fuss them and then the pigs decided they wanted to say hello too ... I didn't fuss them though ...but they were quite happy to pose for a photo
other than that I have been busy busy busy at work and was glad of a few days off to recharge my batteries ...
sooo off to go and make some more brews for you and I will find the photos too :)
