Sooooo today we have flooded the upstairs family bathroom...I found an Angel sat in the bath fully booted and clothed having a splashing good time! (doesn't everyone bathe like this? ..hehe) Somebody must have left the bathroom door unlocked ...must have been Father Kirby because Mother Kirby surely wouldnt have been soooo careless! ;) Ooops! haha We've baked chocolate chip muffins ... I had A LOT of help and certain Angel's did manage to eat several great big spoonfuls of raw mixture, so we only actually ended up with 8 muffins instead of 12 ...we loooove raw muffin/cake mix!! :) ...I must remember to never turn my back on a bowl of muffin mixture and a pair of excited Angels (I only went to turn the oven on!) ... we needed another shower after 'licking the bowl' ..and we actually undressed for the shower this time! hehe. We've played outside in lovely sunshine in the garden, drawn pictures with crayons and stickers (I couldn't face getting the paints out and possibly having more showers ...all my towels are on the line drying!) More outside play ...eating 'baked' muffins (saving just enough for daddy when he gets home from work!) By the time we had finished up with dinner this evening, I was soooo pooped, that I unashamedly admit to plonking them both down in front of the TV to watch a film ...just for a few moments of peace and quiet before bedtime ...well as much peace as you can get with two giggling Angels ! :) Only 5 weeks and 6 more days to go!! :) :)
Yesterday on the last day of school and without Angels I managed to run around and get some last minute jobs completed. Inbetween some comfort food (chocolate stash!) shopping, a haircut and dropping of some clothes at the charity shop I found a little bit of time to gently iron, press and straighten/trim a woolly project that I'd finished stitching last week and has been sat waiting for waaaay to long to be completed...
Threads that Bind- 'A Gentle Life'
I took the photographs before I pressed and trimmed the finish piece ...it looks lovely now those creases are pressed out ..hahaha The original design is framed ...but it will need a long narrow frame so a little bit of searching is going to be required to find something suitable, it definitely needs to be framed, a piano cushion is certainly not appropriate ..hehe I enjoyed this project and love how each sheep manages to look slightly different with just a slight repositioning of the angle of the head :) Really hoping I can find a good frame for it .
I have some small, easy, woolly and cross stitch projects in my basket ready for summer stitching ...if I get chance to sew with mischievous Angels keeping me on my toes for the next 6 weeks! :) Hoping for a quieter and drier day tomorrow ...and I'm not talking about the weather!! ;)
