We were looking through Abi's stash box on Saturday night and we found some things she'd stitched that we haven't had framed or anything yet so we decided that one would make an ideal pinkeep so I'm going to do that for her sometime and I also found one of my finishes Shepherd's Bush Busy Sheep and have half finished that into one! I didn't have any ribbon for it but have bought some this morning so might finish that off later today.
My thread arrived from my floss fairy Lisa this morning so I'm sorting out a HAED gift certificate for her. They have a new site now and it's very different from before so I'm waiting for the GC order to be processed then I can send it on to Lisa. I can't believe how little Lisa paid for the DMC in Wal Mart! It was 24c a skein! Do we get ripped off here in the UK or what?!
Postie also brought my small order from Thread Bear this morning. I put in a small order a couple of weeks ago for La D Da Bless This House, a wire hanger and a couple of buttons. They were waiting for stock of the buttons so I said I'd wait for it all to be sent at the same time. Well guess who let the side yet again with their shoddy deliveries. Yep Royal Mail! Kate was very concerned when I emailed her yesterday about my order as she posted it first class last Thursday so it's a repeat of my order from Jayne the other week. I am delighted with my order though, for all Royal Mail let me down yet again, and I will definitely order from Thread Bear again. The order was beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and ribbon.
Rather than move onto something new in my rotation this weekend I decided to carry on with Chatelaine Summer Afternoon. I managed to get the queen stitches finished in the beehive and did the blue stars or whatever they're supposed to be, then moved onto the next bit which I love. So here's my WIP pic. I couldn't fit it all in the scanner so you can't see the first part at all. I love the silks used in this. They have such a lovely sheen to them and are gorgeous to stitch with. I can't wait to get back to this again:)
So this week I'm back to my HAED stitching with Sara Butcher's Summer ACEO. I am looking forward to getting my teeth into this again as I only have one full page and two small bits to do now. Also Wednesday I want to get back to LHN Chocolate Shoppe. I'm hoping to get it finished this month if I can get my finger out and get on with it! Lol!
I have received my appointment for my bone density scan and I go on 25th April at 9.30am. So that'll be out of the way soon and I can get my results and see what's what.
I am still feeling quite rough. I ache more than ever today and wish whatever it is would come to something and go!
