I Love Cross Stitch

No I'm not stating the obvious; it's my latest finish! I stitched this up as a PIF for KarenV and she received it today so I can share my finish:)

Les Grilles De Maryse I Love Cross Stitch ( From Gift of Stitching)
Unknown evenweave
Gentle Art Sampler Threads
Finished as a Pinkeep.

I loved stitching this piece as the colours are so pretty and I shall probably stitch it again for myself.

No other stitching today as I started with a headache while at the doctors with Abi yesterday and by the time I got home and had some pills it was awful. Not had one like that for a long time. It is still niggling a little but hopefully I've had the worst of it.

Thank you for all your good wishes and hugs and for Abi. The doctor thinks it's a viral infection but she wants to do blood tests to be safe but Abi doesn't want that, bless her. The doctor was very good and said she'd leave it up to her to think about it but she really does want to check. Anyway DH and I had a talk to her when she got in today and we've persuaded her to have it done. She feels so rotten and tired and is so tearful. I'll be going to make an appointment tomorrow and hope we can get it over and done with soon.

I am probably way behind on blogs again so please forgive me if I haven't visited. I will get around to it as soon as I can.
Hugs

Hi! Sally, I am way behind in commenting too. Great finish on the pinkeep. I just downloaded TGFS.
That biscornu is a sweet gift.
Wow! Rites of Spring is looking great.
I do hope Abi is feeling much better soon. It's no fun not feeling like yourself. And you, get rid of the headache.
