Stitching update

Had a wonderful weekend. Mother's day for us in the UK on Sunday and it was fab! I bought some chocolate croissants for my breakfast on Saturday and DH took DD out on Saturday to get me something whilst I had coffee with a friend in Borders. On Sunday DH heated up the croissants and brought them to me in bed - a first i think!! Then I went downstairs and he had got dd to colour me in a card he had bought from church a couple weeks before. He is learning!! She had bought me these fab wellies lol and a bottle of Angel Perfume by Thierri Mugler.
DSC03509 Went to visit my mum and my brother and my two sisters were all up with hubbies and kids. She loved the biscornu. So that was a nice day all in all.

Stitch wise been a busy bee lately. Can't say everything as some is secret for now. Here's an update of Cheryl's Bouquet. I have done a quarter of it now. This will really be a quick one and its so nice to do.
Cheryl's Bouquet 1/4 done

Been having a browse on ebay for buttons. There are hundreds of them! I had a bag of buttons somewhere but I can't find them since we moved. I really love buttons. I love looking through them and sorting them. It must take me back as a child or something.

Nice night tonight to look forward to. Just bought the new James Bond DVD so me and hubby are going to cuddle up and watch it tonight with some Nachos with cheese and salsa and soured cream and chocolate cake and those scrummy Lindt choccy bullet thingys. Yeah I know, just as I am doing so well with my diet but hey one night off is fine!! So enjoy your stitching week everyone and thanks for reading and commenting and I love new people commenting too. Everyone welcome!

I'm glad that you had a fun Mother's day. However, your post and all the wonderful food you mentioned (especially the chocolate croissants) really gave me the munchies, LOL.
Cheryl's Bouquet is looking really great, you've gotten a lot done. Have fun watching James Bond.

Hi Hazel,

The wellies are wonderful. I love the WIP. The colours are so pretty. Thank you for the kind words about my new Blog template. I'm lucky hubby is in the IT industry as I have no clue when it comes to the technical stuff:)
