Well as it is almost a week since I last posted I thought I would catch up,and make it not so long!
It is a fine sunny morning here in Dorset and spring must be coming as the birds were very vocal this morning.Martin went off to his glass group thinking it was the last Saturday of the month ,but has now returned and gone to do the food shop.Dur he got the wrong week.
R.A has been bad this week ,hence the short post as wrists and back are not good , I am hoping when the spring does arrive things will get easier. I thought I would be having a lazy Saturday and could watch some rugby but it is not being played this week.Oh well I shall just have to listen to my book on my new MP3 player.
Jack has to have braces but apparently it is "cool" to have them at school now , he says he can choose the colour he has . Oh my how things change. He is 15, and has to have 5 baby teeth out,and 2 adult teeth before they can fit the braces. Then he has 2 years of the first set and 2 years of the second. I am wondering how he will feel when he is 18 or 19 with them.
The skiers are back , I think I am losing the plot, as when Graeme phoned I thought something was wrong I thought they were away for 10 days.I was wondering why they had to come back early. He said they had had a fantastic time and Ella had loved it. I may even get a pic to share with you at some point.
Kate is working this weekend so we wont see the tribe, a nice quiet weekend. We are taking Mil out for lunch tomorrow.
On the stitching front I have a few things to share. Still not got prize but it is in the post but coming from the US.I also have ordered a chart that I fell in love with on Heidis blog. It is by Beth Twist of heartstring samplery entitled Let it snow I beleive.. I will get my handies smacked. It is this clicking finger I have problems with!!!!!!!!
I have got the patterns from Kate for my birthday from The Sampler Girl, also got 2 e patterns too.
Speaking of Jane Austen this is what I had from my brother and have some pennies left.
The DVD will go with the one I had from Mil and the book is another one to add to the JA collection.I made a bread pudding in the week and here is a piece for you to share along with a cup of tea in a cup that was Martins grandmothers. The plate I am not sure what to think of as it says on the back Made in Staffordshire by Clarice Cliff.Somehow I dont think so as its not like her designs. Interesting though.
I think I must be on a JA roll at the moment as I finished one of the e patterns and it is going next to Emma,stitched over 1 on Sassys Khaki.
I received the threads to do Quaker Diamonds this week too, not got the fabby yet as that has been ordered through Picture plus-not used them before. the picture makes them look quite bright but they are more subtle and sludgy that this. Gorgeous though.
Last but not least progress on Quaker Christmas
So folks that is all for now - I would like to thank all of you for you kind wishes and the comments you leave - have a stitchylicious week ,and I will catch up with you again soon.
Take care hugs n stuff
