A PIF FOR Angela

Just a quick post for today to show the PIF I sent to Angela. I wasn't sure what to stitch for her then read in a comment on my blog that she'd taken a liking to Shepherd's Bush designs so I chose a design called Woolwork Sheep from the leaflet Pillow Flock and I made it into a biscornu. Angela let me know that she received this morning and likes it so I am happy:)

PIF for Angela

I am hoping to be able to show the PIF I sent to Ruth soon as I sent it over a week ago so hopefully it will arrive soon.

I have also finished my Christmas ornament for the SAL but I haven't taken a picture so will save that for another day.

Thank you for all your well wishes after my last blog post. I have now got my appointment for my scan and it's the 30th March. I can't believe I've got an appointment so soon but I'm pleased I have so that it'll set the ball rolling quicker ( depending on what they find) plus I don't have to go to hospital in Hull as they come to the surgery here a few times a week. I can't wait to get it over and done with.

HAED have just started a reward program and if you send in photos of any HAED finishes you have with full details they will send you a chart of your choice to the same or lesser value. I sent 5 photos in and received 5 charts back then I found another photo of one I stitched as a gift. Lisa and Claire are planning on a new HAED start in April and Lisa asked me if I'd like to join them. I wasn't sure as I did say no new HAED starts until QS Girly Gothic is finished but the free charts I received are relatively small and as I really wanted to start something by Jasmine Becket Griffith I decided upon Tiny Treasures Purple Dragon. Providing I have finished BBD Beyond My Heart by then I will allow myself this new start. It's only going to be an informal SAL of stitching on it when we want, if we want to which sounds good to me. I've got my chart printed out and am either going to stitch it over one on 25 count or over two on 40 count.

Better dash and get some lunch as we're at the hairdressers in a bit.

Have a wonderful weekend and take care everyone.

Hugs

Sally

What a fun design, it made a wonderful biscornu. Your earlier stitching updates looked great too. I love Hen Party and Gothic Girly. Glad to hear that your new doctor seems to be much more proactive and trying to address what might be wrong. Good luck with the scan and I hope that they are able to resolve whatever is going on and you're feeling much better soon.

Those little sheep are so cute, lovely finish for a PIF. The HAED deal sounds like a good one, esp. to get one finished one.

Hi birthday buddy! I'm loving that biscornu, too... what a great finish. Finally found your blog and wanted to wish you well with your doctor's appointment Sally. (((hugs))) di

Maren said...

Your Shepherd's Bush biscornu is really cute. What a neat little PIF. And woohoo! Free HAED patterns! (And being HAED, with me that excitement would be followed very quickly with, "Holy cow, how many stitches!?!" lol)

Good luck at your next Dr. appointment. Hopefully this one will get you one step closer to fixing the problem.

Jane said...

I love your SB biscornu! What a great choice for your PIF. Lovely work!

Best wishes for your upcoming dr's appt. I'm praying for good answers!
