Being busy....eeeekkk

 Goodness where has the time gone ??? I have wrote many posts in my head but never actually got round to posting ...lol ... so better late than never, grab a cuppa and a piece of fruitcake and settle down ....

Life at the mouse house after Bentley passing has settled into a new routine ...thankyou for all your lovely comments... Cooper has now got used to being the only one and has become my shadow now , keeping me company in my craft room.

Stitching wise I have plodded on with my wips had a couple of finishes and then my mojo took a wee break for three weeks and has only just got back ...lol 

I have done a bit of sewing and made some more project bags using vinyl as well as a couple of proper bags as gifts too as well as some quilts...and I have just got some lovely material to make some curtains for family so looking forward to that.

My MIL celebrates her 90th birthday on the 19th September and we are throwing a afternoon tea for her and 50 + guests , this time she knows about it ...lol 

My munchkins are growing fast and we spend as much time as possible with them creating hopefully ,lovely fun memories. Grannie and Grandad are as Billy says " my best friends" and I hope we always are ... we are taking them out on Friday with Great Grandad and Grandma Derby to The Vintage weekend at Cosby so that should be fun :) 

Its 04.07 am here and I cannot sleep so hence why this post as I might as well do something productive 🤣🤣🤣 apart from drink my Earl Gray tea ....

Let me see if I can add some photos for you ...

Wow, you've been busy, lots of wonderful projects! It's so nice to have another pup around the house. I lost one of my cats back last part of May but have his mother and a sister so I lavish all my attention on them😌

Your grands are absolutely adorable!

How wonderful to be making memories with the little ones. So many lovely stitchy pieces I can’t pick a favorite although I think I need to add “keeper of the pins” to my shopping list. Robin in NJ
