February done and gone and the rest

helloooo everyone ...gosh the year is flying by … January seemed to stretch for ages and ages and then poof we are almost at the end of February. I have been busy with some stitching and finishes too … I have also done an accountancy / bookkeeping course which I have passed Phew and done some more courses for work and again passed … brain still works hahahahah
Crickey time has flown on from then and it is now Covid 19 Season … its a bit like being immersed in a film and not knowing what is going to happen next in the plot …. I am currently working from home and learning new skills to boot ...
Before things went pear shaped DH and I with a couple of friends went to Ashworth Barracks which was really interesting and we had a great guide Steve who talked us through everything … DH was in the Army when he was younger so they talked shop a lot … they even had some stitched postcards in there ..I have bobbed a few photos up for you

couldn't believe how close my wee robin friend was to me

See I have been busy I am also trying to get the blanket I am crocheting for my new to be grandson ... 5 weeks left and counting finished ... I am about half way there sooo fingers and paws crossed  will make it in time.
One good thing working from home is I don't have to drive there and back so I am using that spare time to get a wee bit more done... well there does have to be some high lights of the whole situation hasn't there ..
soooo before I leave it far to long again I will get this up and posted and hope that you are all keeping well ,.... getting loads of stitching / crafting etc done ... take care one and all :) love mouse xxxxxx

I was wondering where you were!
The visit to the barracks looks interesting. The Robin is adorable and your stitching looks great.
I love the woman with the large skirt, who knows what she has hiding under there!

Wonderful stitching! I love the lady with the full skirt...she had social distancing down to a science before there was even a need for it!! LOL Congrats on your finishes...the mice are just too cute! I'm looking forward to seeing how you will frame/finish them off! I'm sure the trip to the barracks was interesting, my DH would have loved tagging along! It's nice to see you posting again, I've missed you! Stay well!
