Monday 30 January 2012


hello dear friends and folks,
i hope your weekend has been wonderful..and you all staying well and warm..
we are cold here and having rain and rain and more rain everyday..
well so it is getting cooler now..and i am seriously preparing ..and feeling like to "hibernate".
the weather is rainy and cool and i think we will have early winter here..
ME stitched on whole of my weekend..on my deary weekend..
it drizzled the whole weekend and made for a cozy stitching day..and ME happily stitched my spring design..
ohhh..i am so happy for it :)
i stitched it some years ago for one of my exchange..and feeling so sad when i was posting it..
then i said to myself..
dear cucki..dont be sad..
i will make one for you too..
and here is now ..this one for deary cucki too..
such a happy dance me doing too with dear bunnies..
naughty part is..i supposed to work on my monthly stithcy list..
not on my "heart list".. naughty cucki..
i finished Halloween Rules no 1 too.. was also not on my stithcy list..
naughty again;)
1--A lovely day with rainy smile.
2--My happy and joyful heart.
3--Fresh homemade bread.
4--My little xxx on the fine linen.
5--My big mug of coffee..with my book..and maloo purring next to me.
           My dear friend TJ posted this on her blog "humble origins"and i also wanted to share my gratitude list with you all and TJ.
now that my housework and kitchen work finished for a bit..i am going to stitch..
guess i should get back to working on my list..i am ignoring the poor thing from so many days..
hope you day is filled with HAPPY STITCHES and JOY.

one day she looking for me..and i am in..sleeping or may be reading..i heard her voice..i ran outside..holding my pillow and books..and one i put somewhere i dont know..
she standing outside with cross face..
then a man came holding a paper in his hand asking for that street..and address..he was showing me the paper..
then my nany said.. asking the address from a wrong person..ask her about the graves and graveyard..
she can tell you better who is sleeping in which grave..which grave is where..
she know graves and dead people better than living people..
that man looked at us and ran away,...and me giggling..
i am writing this and still giggling.. i am 100% sure that man thinks we two crazy ladies or ghosts :)
standing outside the graveyard in that hot afternoon..and me with one shoe and
