Oh dear.......I have been BAD today!

Well actually you can blame my hubby for this one. A while ago, I left my gluegun on the side in the kitchen to cool down. he didn't move it before cooking dinner and burnt the lead. As I thought it probably wasn't a very good idea to use it, it got binned. I had forgotten this and when I came to make up my ornie this morning spent half an hour searching before the penny dropped. A quick trip to Hobbycraft was called for as theirs were on special offer at the moment. To cut a long story short, I ended up buying a new gluegun, sticks, backing fabric, felt, mountboard, 5 Mouseloft kits, some new DMC perfume threads and some stitchbows. Ooooops!

Ok, I admit it...............it was my fault for leaving the gun there after it cooled and I deserve to go without. TOO LATE!!

My mum gave us a Wii and some games as a family present this year. Rachael was doing absolutely rubbish at bowling, getting really upset because she couldn't do it. After a little gentle coaching in how to change the angles etc she managed to get 8 strikes on the trot. WOW. Her final score was 267. I'm not playing HER again..........lol. This is a screen shot of her 8th strike.

Anyway, whilst she was busy annhililating her brother, I was in the kitchen finishing off the ornie I stitched last night and here it is............

(Mine's the Christmas Tree not the angel!!) That's January's ornie stitched and finished.
Well I suppose I had better think of something nice for tea to sweeten hubby up a bit.........lol.

Wonderful stash haul lol. I've seen the perfume threads on the Sewandso site. Are they nice?

Well done to Rachael. Tell her to pass me some tips as I can't do the bowling either.

I've gone mad of late too, but not on stitching things this time - on make-up!!! Well, it was my own 'pocket money', so no matter, but I did go a bit OTT and then gave a couple of things to friends.=) Hobbycraft can seriously impact on your cash though, I know! As can stitching/craft shows.... Not long until the M'cr one....

I wonder about those DMC scented threads. I mean, does it matter if they smell nice?? Are they any good? Are the scents nice?

Thanks for your visit to my blog. Come back often!=)

Nice to meet a fellow blogger from England Sharon! Good idea of yours to make a Christmas ornament each month. Hope we do get to be swap partners sometime in the future.
