The mice are back

We've just seen a mouse in the bathroom. REALLY annoyed about it, as we thought we'd gotten rid of them after the nightmare early this year. Am hoping they've not managed to get into the bedroom, although I doubt I'm gonna get much sleep tonight, anyway. And I need to use the bathroom, but I'm too scared to go in there! I HATE mice!!!!!

Feeling poorly

Just thought I'd pop in quickly. I've almost finished my Dolly Mama High Maintenance, but I can't find my black seed beads to do the eyes-I never have managed to master a french knot! Mum has some she's gonna let me have, but I probably won't see her until the end of October. Thought I'd finish her off the same way as I did with the DM I stitched for Mum. I used some wooden bell pull ends and I think it worked well for it.

Anyway, I'm not feeling so good this week, so I'm gonna go and hide under my duvet with a mug of lemsip and a copy of Heat!

I *really* love these!

Bothy Threads have released some more cut thru designs. These are definitely going on my Christmas wish list!

I've always wanted to live in a windmill, and this one certainly looks fun. Then there's the North Pole house, which I *need* for my collection, as I adore Christmas. And that Camper van is just brilliant!

Of course I already have 3 cut thru designs, which I haven't even started yet. Princess Palace-because I want anything Princess-related! Pirate Ship to stitch for day! And the new Narrow Boat design, because we had our honeymoon on a narrow boat.

But I've barely done any stitching in months. I worked on the Dolly Mamas 'High Maintenance' at the cross stitch meet last week, but haven't picked up Mum's one in ages. Debi had a baby girl, but I haven't heard anything from her since that, so haven't done anything to the baby sampler. I must get motivated!
