Last Friday night we got snowed in again eeek but luckily the sun shone on Saturday morning and by the afternoon all was back to normal PHEW which was a good job really as I got a wonderful bouquet of flowers delivered with a balloon and a teddy called button and some chocolates from DH and the girls :) Luckily on the Thursday my very nice postie delivered some wee parcels from Lynda, Jo,June and Tricia which I opened up on Sunday ( I did ask did they want me to save them but they said nope ...lol) being as I was at work on the Monday the 28th which was my actual day ... I also had some presents from Chris and Wendy ( no blog as yet) Kath and Michelle which I opened early on my day before setting off to work armed and dangerous with some cake for my fellow workers ....
anyways I digress as it was my birthday weekend , day, week ,following weekend heheheh .... I actually sat and stitched most of Saturday afternoon and night and also part of Sunday too ... I worked on the Friendship Blooms SAl by Blue Ribbon Designs doing the over one on forty count wording ....and do you know I actually found it quite relaxing ....lol..... now if that doesn't convince you I am mad heheheheh
on the Sunday I worked on the Travelling Pattern "Getting Old " by L*K and I have almost finished it too whoop whoop ... there was no pressure to get it done quickly but I like to get them done and on their merry way as soon as I can ...
oooo I also received in the post the chart Dandy Dreams by Silver creek Samplers and Diane even signed it for me too *VBG .... I like the look of her new sampler too heheheh ... I did go into town on Saturday once I could get the car out and got the threads for it .... but am wondering whether to use some hand dyes ... decision will be made once fully decided on the fabric I am going to stitch it on :)
DH and I are off to York this weekend (told you it carried on ;) and hopefully I will be able to get my birthday present while we are there ... I am looking at a bridge SLR camera with a decent zoom and macro lens with possibly multiple frames per second for those quick get the camera moments .... sooo watch this space :)
having just seen the time I had better get that kettle on again for the last bedtime drink and get those eye candy photos up for you :)
