~*~ Is it going Pear-shaped ? ~*~
Alex arrived safely in Prague and says they are having a fantastic time, Doing What ???, I am not sure ? He has emailed a few times and "spoken " to Calum on MSN. They are staying in hostels and most of them offer online facilities.
I set about Alex's bedroom this morning, cleaning, tidying and packing up.
We have hit a glitch with the new house, the very expensive survey has revealed a few major problems so I am going to try and get the price reduced, to help towards the repairs.
Craft- wise, I am just finishing off a few things;
1. A needlepoint I bought at Harrogate in November and I am going to send it to the company "Jolly Red" to be professionally framed.( Finished )
2. Calum's fingerless gloves that were supposed to be in his Christmas stocking are just about finished.
3. January stitchery of " Ring in the New" by Kathy Schmidt. (finished ).
Calum and Verity are in London this weekend, visiting the Terracotta Warriors, due back tomorrow night and on Tuesday evening I am going to see " STRICTLY COME DANCING" at the Arena in Newcastle.
The photo is of a glorious tablecloth I bought from "Louise Loves ", before Christmas.
FQ's on Friday, in the morning I helped Kim load a quilt onto the Gammill and then I was late for the lunch we had arranged and then spent a couple of hours on the above projects. Well its back to the gloves...........
