Tuesday again!

The week has gone too fast.

So, yes, I have made lunches and afternoon tea again ready for the afterschool dashing about.

But, I have finished Penguin #18, yay! Only 4 to go. AND this gives me "permission" to start on Lady Scarlett, woohoo. The fabulous Silver Needle in Tulsa had these lovely kits available and I managed to get one! They sell out very fast and I really didn't think I'd get it, so the parcel arriving was a lovely surprise.

another Tuesday rolls around

which means that I've made two lunches for school bags, and a big bag of afternoon tea for the car. Why? Cos Tuesday is the day I race home to be in time to pick the girls up directly from school, to get to ballet and then race across town to get to gymnastics.

If I could find the "evil gym mom" switch I would not only turn it off, I would permanently remove it.

Still, one teddy on a balloon is stitched, two plus clouds to go. No stitching on Barnyard Kitties or the Penguins however, sigh.

No stitching last night as Cheetah and Dini took turns at sitting on me in such a way as to immobilise my arms. Man, it's tough being a cat!

I've been tagged!

eeek. I'm sure most of you know the rules by now: post 8 random things about yourself and then tag 8 more people. Problem is, all the bloggers I know have already been tagged!
Anyway, here's my 8 random facts
1. I'm a chocoholic, a hopeless case
2. favourite chocolate is dark with peppermint
3. I've only (so far) been in a cast once - broke a bone in my foot
4. I am an evil gym mom. Ask my DDs, they'll tell you!
5. I belong to a fabulous Yahoo group called 2muchXS. Thanks to them I now have waay more stash than I ever used to, but I have actually finished things now :)
6. I'm the youngest, with one sister and one brother
7. i'm 40 next birthday
8. I'm left handed

And I tag Rene, Marisa and Ally (I know, not 8, but I don't know very many bloggers!)

I am such a newbie

and how does one realise that one is still a blogging newbie? When I see that there are comments on my posts and I hadn't noticed!! [blushing in embarassment]
Thank you!
I will try to be more vigilant in future :)

Happy stitching everyone

and the autumn sunny blue days continue

Another beautiful blue Auckland day, following on from lovely Saturday and Sunday. In the opinion of my work colleague based in the Hawkes Bay (shipping apples) long may it continue. Us in the fresh produce industry are manic weather watchers.
Not much stitching lately, :(
I did get the Lickle Ted gift away, and it was received kindly so all is good there.
My left hand started to ache so I wondered if I had over done the stitching. It is fine now, so I'll try to get back into it. Out of unread books in the house so really I have no excuse LOL
