Lets see if I can do this right today.
Last time I tried to post pics and promised you one of Ollie in the stitching chair,well here he is a big dog in a little chair! I think he looks so fed up.
On Saturday we had a phone call from Ella who is our 9 year old granddaughter ,asking us if we would like to go to lunch with her on Sunday.They live about 40miles away,she was cooking she said and would we like to go. Of course , (anything to get out of cooking Sunday lunch ,but more about that later). So we duly set out on a very wet day which as we travelled along turned into a lovely sunny journey.
When we arrived Ella was busy in the kitchen but had done most of the prep. Here are some pics of her doing her thing.
Hasn't she done well it was really yummy- Pasta,cheese,tomato and bacon bake, with garlic bread and raspberry pavlova and blackberry and apple crumble for pud. All done by Ella (with mum watching).Graeme said she doesn't like the clearing down bit though as she goes, who does! but Ella WELL DONE.
We then went to Hobbycraft and I picked up the threads for my Sampler Girls Stocking , blimey haven't DMC threads gone up 79p per skein. As I needed 50 altogether(extras for other things) it was a lot just for threads.
Ella had done scones and Carrot Cake for tea and then we headed homeward.BTW Ollie did have a little all to himself and Ella made him a misshapen scone as he has to be treated like the family (spoilt, going on a diet, dog).
On Monday I finished this a design by Pineberry Lane this is for the monthly ornament challenge over on JA forum. Hope you like it,done on Sassys fabric (I do like her fabric) 28 count over 1 using Dmc threads.
Tonight being Tuesday its the Vine over on JA with Julie and Mr Stick on the UFO night .Hopefully I will be able to start putting the leaves on the right hand side this week.
Speaking of my Julie friend I posted a little gift to her and if you haven't already seen it on her blog here it is again.
Lastly a pic of the socks that turned the fingers blue and to prove to Julie I did do them.
Thanks to Karan for help in me getting these photos on here she is a star!! However I am sorry they are all in a line, will I get to grips with this I wonder?
As a postscript spoilt dog has a limp - maybe a visit to the vets tomorrow- perhaps I will ask him for a clever head while I am there.
Take care folks and thanks for sticking with me.
Hugs and things Barb
