Summer ???? holiday 2019

Helloo everyone … hope you are all well .. the kettle has gone on and somewhere I do have some cookies for you to grab.. make yourselves comfy :)
I go back to work tomorrow and have had two whole weeks off and it has practically piddled it down every single day I have been off …
I escaped to Blackpool the first weekend and on the Saturday it blew a hooley as well as rained, , we went up to Cleverley's as I wanted to take some photos of Mary's Shell as well as the Ogre and got some but they are not as clear as they could have been due to the inclement weather *sigh ...Sunday however was fabulous … there was a car rally on at Stanley Park and I got to photograph various bits of wildlife that I have not managed before :)
We as you know have been doing a wee bit of renovation at the mouse house and finally with only a few bits of snagging to do, have finished it unless I decide to get the bathroom a freshen up hahahahah 
The wallpaper for the bedroom was rolled the wrong way would you believe so had to re roll … that kept me out of mischief for all of five mins … The door has been hung to the cupboard now, just need to adjust a wee bit the skirting board and bob on the architrave and voila it will be fully finished … one of those snagging bits ..lol .
Did manage a tiny bit of stitching , I finished WinterWoollens by LHN with my own colour way, I finished off an ornament for an exchange , made a present for Butterfly for her birthday which needs to be posted to her, got another word added to my "I am a Stitcher", did a wee bit more on my "Song of the Season's by LHN and a bit more on my Block Party Sal ...I also spent today doing some fully finishing off COOOOO … I know I was impressed with myself too ..lol
I have made another cuppa while I find the photos to show you …

I love your wallpaper choice, and the pretty chair you reupholstered! Great stitching, and so fun to see the wildlife photos :)

The chair looks great, and the wallpaper a nice feature.
Lots of lovely stitching and finishing you've managed to achieve.
What a shame the weather didn't play nicely but I guess you wouldn't have got so much crafting done if it had!

You have been a busy little stitching mouse! Love all your Christmas finishes, the Mouse House will look very festive this year.

Beautiful stitching and finishing. Love the idea of the rolls.
Have a good weekend.

Hello Ms. Mouse! I've finally got around to visiting your blog again. What lovely wildlife pictures you've taken!! Sounds like it was a wonderful trip even though you hit some bad weather one day. Your stitching is beautiful as always!! I love the ornaments and the Christmas bellpull. Do I see a SAL in there? Where and what, pray tell, is that?? Inquiring minds need to know!! Your house looks lovely! I wish I could see it in person!!
