Roll On 5th May


I've been and ordered my new car today. The one I have at the moment is a Focus C-Max 1.8 LX. My new one will be a Focus C-Max 1.8 Zetec and it's going to be Aquarius metallic blue. The one I have now is dark metallic blue. I can't wait till it's ready for me to collect, which should be 5th May. Dishy Paul is gonna ring me in the next couple of days just to confirm that it's all going through. And I only have to pay £175 advance payment. The new car will have a heated windscreen which will be a godsend, as the blowers are crap on the LX when I get fogged up.


More good news! After we ordered the car, we went over to Jayne's and I picked up my stuff from the framers. There were four items to collect but I can only show you three as the other one is for someone's birthday. The top picture is Cottage Garden from Dinky Dyes. You can't see the frame on this one but it's just plain pine, the same as the other two. The middle picture is a Patricia Ann design, from a magazine and I think it's called Past Times. And finally, Hyacinth House by Elizabeth's Designs.
I should have been stitching on Celtic Autumn today, but apart from the fact that we've hardly been in today, I haven't really felt like it when I have been in the house. I've done maybe 30 stitches on her. I think tomorrow, as I have a free day (the second part of the Ozark Sampler SAL isn't here yet) I'll do some more work on the Mini Mandala, and maybe start and put some of the beads on. That'll be fun.
Amazingly enough I was very restrained in the Attic and only paid for the framing, bought some threads and a piece of material for stitching Loopylou's Mistletoe on...eventually. I think it's this particular design that I'm waiting for the threads for from Stitching Bits & Bobs. They were ordered on 9th January, and they've allegedly been shipped, but I'm not holding my breath. They should be here this week.
