Nothing to Show

LOL! No stitching updates I'm afraid as yet! I've been stitching on Heaven and Earth Designs Guardian since finishing Dragonette as I just had the urge to stitch on it. I've almost completed the first page and the temptation to carry on next week is overwhelming me! I really should move on to the next piece in my rotation ( have made changes this time) but I do fancy getting maybe another half page done on Guardian. I shall see how I feel come Monday:)

I have also been busy reading Harry Potter! I decided that I could still read Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince even though Abi was reading it as I could use my bookmark and read it when she wasn't! Well I was amazed as I was addicted from chapter one and read it in about five days and am now onto the last one. No spoilers here but I will say it's brilliant so far!

The girls and I have had a quiet week this week just going out for walks on the beach and around town. We planned a picnic on the beach for Thursday and went shopping Wednesday afternoon and bought some bits and pieces to eat. Thursday comes and it's cloudy and cold and the forecast for Friday was no better so we put a blanket down in the living room and set the picnic up in there!!! DH laughed when we told him what we'd done! Of course Friday was a glorious day so we could have gone then but we'd eaten everything! Lol!

DH is off now for two weeks so we're hoping to get out the odd day. We have Abi's bedroom to decorate but we have had a change of plan and will, hopefully, just be painting the walls rather than stripping all the paper off. She wants dark pink and purple as I've bought some Punky Fish curtains and bedding for her:) Next job is getting Jess a new bed as hers is falling to bits! I have visions of it collapsing during the night!

Thank you to everybody who wished Jess a Happy Birthday:) She has read all your comments and thanks all of you. She had a good day, got lots of lovely pressies and money. Karen, she is now heavily into the Harvest Moon game we bought her! Any tips? Lol! Thank you also for all your lovely comments on my finish of Dragonette. I have asked Jess what she wouild like doing with it and she has chosen framing so I'm going to ler her pick the frame etc.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. The girls and I will be having another quiet day tomorrow as DH is off marshalling some motocross up at Wilberfoss!

Yup I've had indoor picnics in the past as well. They can be great fun, but it is to bad you weren't able to get out. Have fun working on Guardian and I look forward to seeing a picture. As to your rotation, if Guardian is still really calling to you to work on it I'd say stay with it a bit longer.
