May's Ornament & Stash

I'm on the ball with my ornament for the Christmas All Year Round SAL this month. I've finished the stitching so just need to make it up sometime.

Country Cottage Needleworks Season of Love ( JCS Ornament preview magazine)

32 count Amber permin linen

DMC

I've finally got my snood blocked and sewn up. I had to block it twice and it still curls up but I figure when it's round my neck it won't matter.

I started another. This one is for Abi.

I had more new stash. Yes I know it's naughty! I ordered from The Patchwork Rabbit on Friday and it arrived on Saturday. Fantastic service.

Just a short post today. I'm in a panic as I go in for my surgery tomorrow ( hopefully) and I'm not feeling too well. I went to craft club this morning, got sat down and I came over all funny. I had got very hot though. It could also be panic I guess. I can't stand the thought of having to cancel so hope I'll be OK for then. Otherwise I'll have to wait another 8/ 9 weeks:(

I'm afraid I haven't got caught up on blogs and won't now so I'll visit you all when I feel up to being on the PC again. See you all on the other side unless I end up not being able to go! 

With much love

Sally

Grats on the ornie finish, and on being caught up on them. Good luck with your surgery. Have said a prayer that it went, and went well.

Deb said...

Hi, Sally! I love that scarf! The yarn you used is perfection. Your stitching has been such eye-candy for me on Facebook, but I'm glad I stopped by to tell you. Your blog is dynamite, too. I've missed chatting with you. Don't forget I'm still on http://lavenroseramblings.blogspot.com as well as my bookishlibraria site. Feel better every day, will you? Hugs...
