Waving small paw hellooo

Heeeelllllooooooooo … remember me … that wee mouse that stitches heheheh
Sorry not been around for awhile .. I have wrote many blog updates … in my head  hahahahah … seriously I have been rather busy stitching, going to Beamish for a long weekend with DH … going on my annual trip to Nimble Thimble in Wales with Chris and …… we have a new grandpuppy too … DD1 has moved out and her and her partner have got a cocker spaniel puppy called Oliver who is simply adorabubble and the boys love him when he comes to visit .
We have also been kicking up a storm with decorating the mouse house … it started with the spare room, then the hallway followed by the master bedroom where we have created a storage space by accident …. when fitting the new carpet on the stairs we asked the carpet fitter to undo one of the stairs to the attic as we noticed it was wobbly .. was a good job really as it had bust through … we went to fix it and noticed a rather large area underneath which was the width of the hallway and a wee bit more … needless to say we now have a doorway in my bedroom as of today hahahahahah and a workable space to put things you never have enough room to put away …
On the stitching front I have finished 20 items since the New Year one of them a memory quilt for my friends wee westie that passed away a few years back .. they absolutely love it … Phew ….
I need to thank Butterfly for emailing me to check I was ok and to remind me that I hadn't been squeaking for a wee while … ooooo I have just remembered the kettle has boiled …. grab a cup of tea and a goodie … have one or two around for you all …
I am on the JCS ornament group on FB so I have been stitching lots of Christmas ornaments as also doing a stitch along of ornaments with a few friends on FB too .. soooo this year I will probably have enough to go on a tree once fully finished annndddd I get a tree to put them on hehehehe

When DH and I went to Beamish there was a steam fair on which was fabulous seeing all the old cars and bikes and vans there too … I took loads of photos which I will have to show next time as not uploaded them as of yet .. sorry 
When Chris and I went to Wales to the Nimble Thimble to meet up with some fellow stitchers for the weekend we got invited out to tea on the Friday with Tina and Pat who were staying in a gorgeous cottage not far from where we were but it was a wee bit hard to find … on the way back in the dark we got lost and ended up in the middle of nowhere with no lights and the only thing on the road was my wee car and nothing else agghhhhhh … needless to say thank goodness for the sat nav …
Honestly I will try and be a wee bit more organised next time and have the photos uploaded ..and have photos of finished items as well
I have got quite a few exchanges coming up so will need to get my needles smoking again … not stitched properly for a few weeks with everything going off and being ill with another pesky cold that will not go away either.... but enough of that … I will be stitching up a storm when I am off in just over a week for two weeks … bliss :) Ok I had better finish up now and wish you all a wonderful stitchy week and I will catch up with you all again real soon :) take care one and all  .. love mouse xxxxxx
