Goodness!!! The Yipee is because the person I sent my RAK to has received it!! EEEEeekkkk!!!!  At least I know now its not got lost in the post!!   

I posted my RAK a long way, and I am thrilled it got there!  And I am relieved to say that they like it! Phew!  If you would like to see what I posted please take a look at Deborah's Bits and Pieces blog....

I have been stitching today, back doing Ocean Friends... I wanted to get it finished so that I can get cracking on another one! Gosh are you all the same?? I have some to finish and WOW I want to stitch so much more... not enough time in a day!

Where I am now...

I have finished the top of the stitch.. I am now working on the bottom part.  I really have not got a lot to do... its just very time consuming.  Tomorrow I really have nothing planned apart from stitching.. its our day in and relax time so yeah! stitch time!  Today I just seemed to be out.. its funny I think, I mean I planned to stay in and stitch and instead I had to drop Han somewhere and then go pick up a few things at the shops.. before I knew it the day had gone!  Sunday WILL be different!  I think I may have a PJ stitch day! ha ha ha now that would be great!

I have been looking around all the amazing blogs.. only a few, goodness there a tonnes out there!  Of the few I looked at and yes joined a few I think they are marvelous.  The things people chat about is great!  I am still new at this whole blogging thing, but really enjoying it.  I look at some blogs, well OK pretty much all of them and I am so inspired to do better its just fantastic.  There are some truly wonderful blogs out there and I hope one day I too become an inspiration to someone.

One thing is clear I love to stitch!  :)

Until Sunday... keep smiling! :)
