On our way! bet you wish you had joined us now!!

Here is where Sally and I are off to tomorrow for our SAL at Colleens this week. All in the imagination of course ,but our Mondays have become the highlight of the week. This is Colleens home in sunny Florida. Sallys Emmanuel is really coming on so nicely and if you would like a look see then she is Stitchangelstreasures. Colleen is stitching SB checkered sheep and her blog is Threads in my Garden ,I really must get my head round this linky thing!
I will show you progress on The Journey later in the week.
I did think I would get some stitching done today but have had mil and dd and family over, so as they have just gone I am going to collapse and pick up the knitting needles.
Thankyou for your sweet comments for my birthday. Speaking of my birthday I did say I would share with you some sheep pics. Well one or two.
We were driving home and this was the view from the road, the sea is Lyme Bay,and the Chesil beach between Abbotsbury and Bridport.

However this is not really why Martin had to screech to a stop and leap out pursuing these guys.

Of course I was in the car singing Baa Baa black sheep!
Martin is really a star as it was cold and fine raining at the time. He probably knew I would sulk all the way home if I did not get a sheep fix picture lol.
So this weeks plans are hopefully get a birthday pressie done, post my baby parcel to Julie and her daughter. SB Tomorrow and ufo Autumn on Tuesday ,Wed S/S The Sampler Girl .Then hopefully I shall get the christmas ornie started I have not even done the challenge yet either argh!!
Off now to put the feet up ,thanks for commenting and replying to any questions I have asked on your blogs.
Hugs n stuff

What a lovely place to 'visit' for your SAL. I think these out of body experiences are well worth encouraging...haha! Looking forward to seeing your stitching. I'm hoping to get back into the groove in the next few days when things finally begin to settle back down again.

Talk of Chesil Beach brings back so many happy memories. We used to love visiting Lyme Bay and Lyme Regis.
Those black sheep look very regal :>) They have got you sussed out. Most of them seem to be posing...haha!.

Can't wait to stitch on some JA tomorrow. You week looks more or less mapped out :>)

I do hope that you & Sally enjoyed your visit with me & our SAL. Please tell Martin thank you & how thrilled I am that he stopped for a few sheep pics. Aren't they beautiful! You do have a busy stitching week planned. Can't wait to see your projects. My internet has been out of sorts, so posting & viewing blogs has been a challenge.
Do we meet at Sally's house this coming Monday?
