Long time no see...

Sorry for the lack of blogging last week, 
hubby booked a week off work*extremely rare occurrence*
Last time I saw you I mentioned ribbon storage...
 tis now full and on my sewing desk
*already more than in this pic lol*
 Much easier to find that perfect match now :D
It is a "build it yourself" unit from 
Stamps Away...doddle to put together
and fun to decorate :D

My Bestie turned up on Monday with a pressie.
She found this glass dome at christmas,
 but was too poorly to do anything with it
*also she was struggling to give it away lol*

She made the black sparkly rose and motto for inside
and I love it...AND
she made it removable cos
"I thought you might want to put other stuff in it through the year"
# knows me so well :D

While Hubby was pacing about we/I decided to join 
and the first place we visited was 
which was AMAZING!!!!

 I took 155 photos*which I will spare you for now*
We went right up onto the top of the tower...
and this was looking down lol.

I have also been busy sewing...
new cushion covers and a new bag...
 which is reversible!!!
*Steampunk fabrics from C&C*

And then yesterday we went to 
I went in the 70's on a school trip.
In those days we couldn't go inside,
 but could climb up the walls lol
 Now it is the other way around,
which is fortunate
 as I don't think I would have survived
 climbing up the wall at my age :D
*yes we went up on the roof of the tower*
All in all a very enjoyable week,
even if having hubby home for 10 days
 was like babysitting a hyperactive toddler.

Now he is back at work I shall be enjoying the peace and quiet 
and mostly cross stitching.

Thank you Virginia for constantly spiking
my desire for adventure :D
