Came across the SAL being run on the By the Bay Needleart Blogspot and just couldn't resist taking part - so far have got to part 3, will work on it again next week.. just loving all the colours in it, at least something is summery around here.

 Have changed up rotation a little so that I am just concentrating on four different pieces. One week on my chatelaine , one week on mirabilia , one week on smalls and two weeks on my haeds.. these last few days it's been my QS Twilight Shimmer, here's where it's at

Off to watch me a bit of wimbledon..come on Andy

busy busy

Well this last week has been a bit busy for us all - we spent the weekend down at The Trafford Centre at Manchester which turned out to be really good fun.  Now a shopping centre is not normally where I would choose to spend a weekend but we were well impressed with all it had to offer. 

The main reason for going was that I had won tickets a good while back for a couple of the attractions there, namely Legoland Discovery Centre and Aerial Extreme, so we booked a couple of cheap nights in a local premier inn and decided to make a stay out of it.   

As you can imagine my 8 year old lego daft boy was delighted with the Discovery Centre, but primarily the shop lol..  he couldn't spend his money quickly enough. 

after that we took headed to the Aerial Extreme course which is a treetop obstacle course.  Now I will hold my hands up and admit I am a total wuss when it comes to these things, and I opted not to take part (I didn't like roundabouts as a child, there is no way you would be getting up on something like that lol!) .   DD Neve and DH Lee did decide to go for it, Neve went round as if she was taking a stroll, zipwires the lot - Lee made it round but had a bit of a wobble over the first zipwire - I was trying to film him while not peeing myself laughing .... (which is a bit of a cheek on my part when I wouldn't even try it!) but all in all they thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

Other than that we visited the shops, ate well, went to see Snow White and The Huntsman and spent loads..

Also last week it had been my DD's P7 prom  - a great wee night was had by all..

June WIPocalypse

Well we have hit the half way mark and so far I have made a nice wee dent in my WIPs.  I managed to miss out May's post altogether - you know how these things go, days blend into weeks, blend into months and oops we are in June already..

So since my last post I have worked on the following:

HAED QS Siberian Forest

HAED QS Rapunzel      

Chatelaine White Nights in St Petersburg

                                       No up to date picture - will do that when next it shows it's face in my rotation.

and started and finished Bent Creek June Zooms (go me, yay!!)
