Working, stitching and Kirby

At last, my stint of working is over for a short while! It's strange how you get out of the habit of working. I have today, all next week and the following Monday off and then it's back to the grindstone for 10 days. I think this will probably be the last time this year as everyone seems to have taken their annual leave so for me it will be back to being a 'home bird'. Now what shall I buy with my earnings? I am sure I will think of something - any suggestions?

Although I have been stitching a little I cannot show any pictures because it's either exchanges or gifts. I have also been making some more thread drops to go with the exchanges/gifts so I cannot show you them either. Hannah has taken a backseat so I cannot show an update of her but I can show you Kirby. She is enjoying the start of her Fashion and Design course and has made a few new friends too. Today they have gone on a trip to a London Museum armed with sketch pads and pencils. I hope she gets to go to the Victoria and Albert Museum as their Textiles Department is wonderful. 

The above photos were taken in London a couple of weeks ago - the second one is at the London Transport Museum where, of course, she got to drive a London bus! Well, not really but she did get to sit in the driver's seat and get her picture taken!

I have signed up for HOE Christmas ornament exchange so as soon as I know who my partner is I will look for a pattern to stitch. This afternoon I am going to finish off stitching a birthday gift as I really need to get this stitched, finished and into the mail so that it arrives in time for her birthday. Why do these birthdays creep up so quickly? I also want to watch a dvd called Mr Brooks with Kevin Costner. Well not actually 'with' Kevin Costner I meant it stars Kevin Costner but I wouldn't mind watching it with him so if you care to call round later Kevin ... feel free!

Have a great weekend 
Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Kirby is so pretty. Good luck to her in her university classes!

    Oh my, your last paragraph had me laughing! I didn't know you were such a Kevin Costner fan! I wonder if that would work with me and CSI. How terrific it would be to find George Eads sitting next to me! haha

    Happy weekend!

    Kirby is beautiful! You must be proud! What do you cut your drops out off? Card stock?

    What a beautiful girl you have. I know you're so proud of her. Aren't girls the best?

    I hope Kevin called and you had a nice time "watching" the movie! Heehee

    Kirby is a beauty! I have only one suggestion for extra $$ to spend - stash!

    I loved Mr. Brooks, such an unusual type of movie which is just what I love, with lots of twists and turns.
