WIPocalpyse 2012

Wednesday, 7 September 2011

Well it's a new month so time for a bit of an update with this and that -


The kids went back to school in middle of August and along with that goes all the out of school stuff - Beavers, Guides, swimming, parent association stuff, and Neve is now a full member of the figure skating club which means she can go up to four times a week - I don't think lol, two or three at a push is enough for us!  I am all for her practising and doing well at it but i still want her to enjoy it not think of it as a chore.

It's now getting very autumnal here i.e grey clouds, rain, wind - not much different from our summer actually just a bit colder - very dreich as we would say - had to actually give up and stop wearing my sandals and get into shoes - a sad day..

A wee bit of good news

Yesterday I got a letter to say i had won a trip to Berlin to see Bruno Mars in concert - am not too fussy re the Bruno Mars bit but quite excited about seeing a bit of Berlin, although it will be just a wee bit unfortunately as it is only for one night and the flight is quite early coming back, - i shall have to go and learn a wee bit of German as it is pretty non-existent at the moment..

Being a stitcher of course my first thought was - wonder if there are any good LNS in Berlin lol! Does everyone else think like this when they head somewhere new?


A couple of WIP's progesses for you: 

I joined up over at Love 4 Stitch Alongs forum as a bit of an incentive to work on a couple of pieces i have been neglecting recently so have adapted my rotation somewhat to fit them in - managed a little bit on my chatelaine
And this is where i got to for the summer exchange on Needlecraft Haven - just a wee bit more to go

okay that's me for tonight - off to watch The Soprano's before bed. 


  1. Congratulations on your big win! I can't wait to see the fruits of your German stash hunt. :) Have much fun!

  2. oooo would have been my first thought too hahaha ... all you have to remember is zwei beer bitte ;) eeee you forgot about meeting up with us and that huge ice cream hahahah ..lol love mouse xxxx

  3. Wow a trip to Berlin, you lucky thing!

  4. It's becoming more like autumn here, too. The leaves are turning and falling. Corn and soybeans are turning also. Temps are getting cooler -- which is OK for the daytime, but not night. Brr, lol.

    Your stitching looks great!

  5. Oooh congrats on winning those tickets. Enjoy Berlin! :) Love seeing your stitching.... looking forward to seeing more. :)
