long time since been here

just looked at my last posting date OOPS! , well lots been going on, have now got my wedding dress, it arrived friday morning :o) and fits, and looks lovely :o) it is a burgundy deep purple, very nice, so have taken snippets from the ribbon and can match up hopefully for ties and shoes, if i cant find ties to match then may have to get material nearest match and make them, will see as yet to go out looking.
have had a few eeyore days, hence the not posting as often. but am trying to get out and about with tillee tots in the woods as this does help me tremendously. ive been really missing maggeemay, it just didnt feel the same walking without her, still feels weird but tots has taken over on the fetching game LOL, even trying to pick up a branch for me to throw for her, with much barking and grumbling because she cant LOL.

im still trying to finish of quilts ive started and come up with ideas for the bed quilt to now become a quilted bedspread, ive to get some more material after measuring etc. and also make it thicker with a 4tog duvet rather than the wadding that goes in normally. have brought some buttons to sew to hold it all together rather than trying to quilt it with the machine, so this is an ongoing project im endevouring to complete, along with the lounge quilts, one is nearly done, yes there are mistakes on it , but that just makes it all the more unique and personnel, just need to sew the border on and one is done, then get on with another.

ive been baking today, biscuits and some of these are for paul to take with him tomorrow as hes back with the outreach chemo team (who are lovely), just before xmas we donated tea bags, sugar and mugs (which they are using and were very greatfull for) so tomorrow he is taking some ginger nuts, hobnobs and chocolate hobnobs with him. only problem here is im going to have to make some more hobnobs in the week as not many left, plus the added eating from stevie, jasmin and james LOL they all like them warm from the oven, who am i to deny them such luxury.
comment from stevie today wow your kitchen smells lovely........... jasmin turns round and says well of course it does its nita's kitchen LOL.
as you might have guessed stevie stayed with us last night, her mother has gone away again for a few days, mike (stepson) also went to one of his friends this weekend, hes back later tonight so stevie is going back home later after dinner.

have a nice rib of beef cooking today for dinner, the butcher persuaded me LOL.

hope everyone who reads my blog is well, take care and i promise to be back sooner than before.
