Sorry readers, this week seems to have passed me by in a wave of nothingness!
The big news here is that my DD is fleeing the nest (she jumped, i didn't push) with her boyfriend, they have decided its time to play house together. They collect the keys for their new place next Saturday. Such perfect timing as we had confirmation that DH will be in the hospital 7th November for his op, that means i can play nursey and take good care of him all on my own, i'll be heaps lighter running up and down the stairs to pamper to his every whim, maybe the wobbly bits won't wobble so much!
On one of the MB's i visit, Clare told us that she was decorating a tree in her church for the Christmas season. She has decided all the ornaments will be stitched and asked if anyone would like to send one to add to it. I chose and stitched this one and have posted it off this morning. It's the first time i've stitched a Shepherds Bush design, this one came from the Just Cross Stitch ornament edition 2004. I didn't have the specialist threads it asks for so substituted DMC. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out, i think i'll be doing the others in this series too.
Karen posts pics of some fabulous sunrises and sunsets on her blog, being at the seaside the views are amazing, i've often asked her to send me a nice pink sky too ... Woohoooo Karen, this morning on your way home from work your telepathic skills outdid themselves, look what i woke up to .... it was like the Northern Lights we were in a 'pink out'. One pic is outside my front door and the other from the back garden and yes i was in my pj's in the street at 7am. Can i book another for next Saturday morning, it was a lovely way to spend an hour sitting, watching and drinking tea LOL
When the postie came, my day got even better, through the letterbox dropped the JCS ornament issue, another cup of tea and an hour browsing through that. Hope you all had an enjoyable Saturday too.
