This morning I received a lovely surprise in the post from Julie. It is this gorgeous ornament. Isn't she beautiful? The story behind her is when Julie was looking for a chart to stitch for the monthly ornament SAL on a board she belongs to ( the theme was angel) she came across this one. She says " There was only one lady who could possibly have this when it was finished- the first "Stitchyangel" I encountered when I joined the MBs". Thank you so much Julie, she is gorgeous and will take pride of place on the mantlepiece in my living room. So this got me thinking and I thought why on earth did I not give my blog a name to do with Stitchyangel?! So I have a name for my blog that I am happy with! The treasures are my DH, my two DDs, my stitching and, of coursem all my stitching friends:).
I also have a not so brilliant picture to share of my framed Papillon Creations Simple Little Quaker. I tried yesterday to take some but I don't think my mood has helped much and I didn't get a good one. This one isn't perfect but it does show the frame off quite well. When I took this in to the framers I had got my heart set on a particular frame but when I saw it against it it did not look right so I ended up with two completely different ones. This goldy coloured one does have a red tinge to it so I decided it suited this design perfectly.
The weather has been a mixture here this week. Lots of rain, thunder and lightening ( an aerial on a house was struck by ball lightening on Monday setting the roof on fire), hail and sunshine. Talk about all the seasons in one go!
Thank you to everybody who commented on my last post. You were all so very sweet and I took everything you said on board. I think it has just been one of those weeks and, hopefully, next week will feel better and brighter. I have suffered from low moments for many years now and lacked confidence in lots of things. Tuesday night's Holby City and the Connie storyline when it came out about her Mum got to me and I had tears streaming down my face, whilst trying to look calm and composed and pretending my eyes were itching and watery ( which they do!). It just brought back too many memories for me of my teenage years.
Well I had better go and get some lunch for Jess and I. We're having what's left of the homemade quiche I made yesterday:) Yummy. Have a great weekend everyone!
