Monday update

Colin and I went away this weekend to his mum and dads. I did mange to get some stitching done on my Lizzie Kate June Stamp.
Colins mum, Linda, stitches too,and this weekend I enabled her to stitch on linen! I am looking forward to seeing how she gets on with it next time we go visit.
I did get a wonderful suprise from her.............whilst we were out shopping on Sunday afternoon, I mentioned that I had finally decided on the theme for my kitchen, teapots, cups, tea and coffee theme. As it happens a friend of hers relative, passed away, and she had lots of minature teapots and she had just given them to Col's mum. It wasn't just a few, it was a big cardboard box full of them! Some of them are really really pretty. So Him Indoors now needs to put up shelves in my kitchen for them to go on. They will be going in the dining area. What a great start to my collection. I will take a picture of them when they are all unwrapped ond on the shelves. I just need at some point, to stitch some teacups/teapots/coffee/tea type stuff to accompany them.
My kitchen walls are totally bare. Him Indoors says it looks way too sterile lol.

My grandaughter Destiny was two years old on Friday. Time seems to fly by so quickly now. Here she is with her daddy, and my son, Christopher. Dosn't she look just like her daddy lol.
