What have I been up to.... LOTS!!!

Hello wonderful friends...

I have so much to show you all... I will apologize now for doing such a long post! ha ha a I hope you like today...

I will start with what I have been up to..

I started a new stitching project, on some wonderful blue aida that was very kindly sent to me from Kim a little while ago :)

I am keeping the design secret for now.. all will become clear on my next up date!

That was the start... well ok the fabric and threads! hee hee

Ha ha thinking of giggling I chuckled for a while when I got a Christmas card through the post the other day!  Ha ha even now when I look at it I giggle!

A little while ago I was telling you all about our Christmas and how we as a family do it differently, and the only Christmas dinner we have not done it a BBQ as its just not warm enough!  

Well look!!!

This Christmas card was sent to me by Sue from Kiwikids blog. Thank You ever so much... I found this and think its so funny.

Oooh yes!! I am over the moon to of received my Round Robin stitch from Heather :)

Look at this AMAZING sheep... and the glorious fabric too...

Its adorable...

And WOW!! Thank You Heather for sending some happy goodies too :)  I feel so spoilt :)

Roll on Easter!! lol

OK.. so tell you all about my little day trip to Bruge...

I had a wonderful time, a long day .. and boy was I exhausted!  Han took a lot of photo's and I would like to share some with you all now...

As you all know it was a coach trip so here is my journey...

Han and I went for a walk on the shuttle and found an empty carriage... so what do we do?... 

Act normal.... lol


In Bruges....

Windswept and cold.... 

I did buy a little booklet from this glorious stitching shop I found...

The big wheel in the back ground..

That was a whirl wind tour of my day trip to Bruges... Han and I really had a lot of fun and were really tired when we got back.

I did not really eat much and I actually refrained from the Gluhwein too!  I know crazy right?!  I just thought that 'that' was a German thing and well I was in Bruges.. not quite the same!  I know I am strange! lol

I took a light weight wheelchair with us to aid Han when she got tired.. and just as well I did as 3 times she used it!  On our return we slept a fair few hours to catch up on having no sleep for 2 days! haha haa

I hope you enjoyed the photo's and what we got up to!?

Tomorrow I will show you the stitching I have done..

Smiles and happiness to you all :)
