Biscornu Exchange From Amanda

As promised I'm back with pictures of the gorgeous Autumn colours biscornu exchange I received from Amanda. This was Amanda's first exchange and it was all so beautifully presented and the biscornu so beautifully stitched with a beaded edge. I will treasure this piece. The colours depict Autumn perfectly and it certainly brightened my day. So without further ado here are the piccies.
I just love everything in here and I have been truly spoilt. Thank you so much Amanda and thank you Hazel for organising this mini exchange.

We are all rather tired today so will make this post short. Next door had a party last night ( our new neighbours) and the music was loud and the kids were loud ( in the garden). Abi sleeps in the front bedroom so she got a good night's sleep, Jess said she still slept but DH and I had ear plugs in which made it more bearable so we did get some sleep. We both woke up several times as we could still hear the beat of the music. I think it stopped at about 4am so we were not too happy and I doubt a lot of people round here would be. Finger's crossed it was just a one off.

It's freezing up here today. We've been to the open day at Hull University with Jess and what a cold campus it is! Lol! The wind really blows around it! We listened to a talk about chemistry courses etc and had a tour of the chemistry department and were quite impressed with it. Jess wants to do a 4 year MChem course in Chemistry with Nanotechnology.

Well I'm going to try and get warm and maybe play on my DS for a bit before tea.

Hugs

The university course sounds awesome! I didn't understand half of what you were talking about, but I'm sure DD does rofl

Hope that party was just a one off, you don't want to have that happen too often, do you?

What a fantastic exchange package....it must have been a delight to open!!
OO i can sympathise about neighbour parties, when Isey was a baby our neighbours at both sides were student houses...need I say more. My dad has students adjoining him, the one time theyhad a party till all hours at 7am on the Sunday morning he hooked up a cd player outside their bedroom windows and played Opera at full blast...they ever did it again...lol

The biscornus are lovely.

I just moved from a neighborhood where people play music so loud all hours of the night. It doesn't happen where I live now...

Hopefully you can catch up on some sleep!
