Busy Busy Busy...

...making needlecases. I think I made 8 today, all different. I'll be putting pics in to my Webshots when I get around to it. They're on the computer, just haven't got round to uploading them yet. After they were done I kitted up another four Elizabeth's Designs charts, although I will need to order some of the more specialised threads and charms. Tonight I made a start on the first one, called Hyacinth House. I've done the right hand window, the window box with the flowers in it, the grass under the tree and half of the tree trunk. Hopefully will get quite a bit more done tomorrow.

I should really do some work on Celtic Autumn as it's ages since I worked on her. I did stitch some beads on while I was at Kathy's but you can't really see them on the photo. I have, however, worked out how to take close up photos with my digital camera (only had the bloody thing a year) so maybe the next pic will show them up more. Fingers crossed eh? It's amazing what you can find out when you read the instruction book. LOL!

Not long now till Craig and I go on holiday to Scarborough. We're going with my Mam and Dad, the first week in September. We decided against a caravan again this time as my parents aren't really keen on vans. We're staying in a proper guest house for a change and won't have to do any cooking or shopping for food. We're only going B&B though so will still have to buy something for lunch and tea. I googled eateries this afternoon and there seems to be a fair few places we can go.

And then, at the beginning of October, Craig and I are off to Prague for four days. It'll be Craig's birthday our second day there, so I'm hoping it's going to be really special for him. He's never flown before so that'll be a novel experience in itself, and the furthest he's been abroad has been northern France/Belgium on a baccy and booze run...LOL. We're both really looking forward to going.
