Friday Night with Friends

Hello there, Well last night was my first evening joining in with Gone Stitchin's Friday night with friends sign up... here's progress so far ..
I'm working on Jane Greenoff's Tiny Red Sampler for a Christmas present. I've made a small amount of progress but would really like to complete it in the next couple of weeks. So last night was great stitching with tea and chocolate and catching up on last few episodes of Lost on dvd (yes I know that series was ages ago but only just got round to watching them hehe). My shop items are progressing well. Currently making two mini mice and other small items. On a bit of a deadline as I've booked myself to have a stall at my daughter's school for their Christmas fair... am nervous but really excited too... finger's crossed to get some sales.

Halloween Half Term

Well we all had a lovely family time off for the week last week ... We visited Crich Tramway Museum twice in the hols in the evenings for their wonderful Starlight/Halloween events..
Dr Who (David Tennant lookalike) was there along with a cyber man and Dalek which DD absolutely loved even though she's never seen the TV programmes... DD was dressed up as a Corpse Bride complete with 'stitches' on her face and white gothic dress. The whole event was very well organised and was brill :) :) We did some baking and made Homebird & Belle's Pumpkin Cupcakes ( which were a great success and devoured in a few days :)
Lots of board games time was had and plenty of Lego! It was brill, ah well back to school today and Monday ... See you soon
