Happy Anniversary and Chocolate Shoppe Finished!

Happy Anniversary to my wonderful DH! We have been married 21 years today! Wow where did the time go! It hardly seems like five minutes since we were exchanging vows and here we are 21 years and two daughters later as happy as ever. We are going out for a meal with the girls this evening.

I finally finished Little House Needleworks Chocolate Shoppe last night. I managed to get quite a good bit done yesterday afternoon but was so close to finishing I decided not to leave it another week so did it last night. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out and it's now ready to frame in the frame I bought especially for it. I just hope it looks OK in it! Lisa the chart is on it's way to you.


This week is supposed to be the turn of HAED quick stitch Dragonette in my rotation and for all I stitched quite happily on her Monday evening when it came to Tuesday I just couldn't face it so out came Papillon Creations Serendipity instead. I really enjoyed stitching it and felt so much better stitching on this rather than Dragonette. So I think there may some changes to my rotation soon. I emailed Helen, the Queen of Rotas, to see how her rotation works and it really makes sense so I may well give it a go. Thanks Helen for the explanation! I really want to try and not have three HAEDS in a row so will try adding in some smaller pieces in between then that way I may have more finishes- maybe!


I finally decided what to spend some of my cash from stash sales on so have ordered the newer colours of GAST from Shirley at Country Cottage and Drawn Thread Sanctuary and La D Da Love is Patient from Mary Kathryn at Ehand Crafts so am looking forward to receiving those. I have also paid for my May COTM from Sassy's Fabbys and can't wait to see what she has in store for us this time. For the first time in ages I was looking at the clearance sale pages on Needlecraft Corner and actually came across a chart I fancied Blue Ribbon Designs Find Your Happy Place so I ordered that as well as a couple of Caron Waterlilies, as there was 25% off threads, I need for charts I have. So I will have quite a bit of stash coming and will no doubt want to start the charts straight away! Lol!



I went for my bone density scan yesterday at the Centre for Metabolic Bone Disease in Hull. Good thing about it being seperate from the hospital is I was seen on time and it didn't take long at all. The scan was straightforward and the results will be sent to my doctor and I've been advised to wait 3 weeks as the consultant is away this week. They also checked my height and weight and the good thing is I haven't lost any height which is a good sign.

I might sit and stitch on Guardian this afternoon and see how it goes. Hope everyone if having a good week! Happy Birthday for tomorrow
Paula! 21 again! LOL!

I'm glad your scan seemed to go well and I'm sure it will show up with nothing significant when it comes back.
