Winter

What a horrible day it is here on the east coast on England! Lots of rain and winds which are, apparently, going to get stronger as the day goes on. Perfect day for stitching if only I did not have a funny head again. Grrrrrrrrrrrr! If this is down to perimenopause I seriously need something to help me because I hate the way things are.

So quick blog post to show my progress on Heaven and Earth Designs Winter. For new readers to my blog ( waving madly!) here is what it will look like when it's finished:) And this is what it looks like now! Long way to go before it's finished but I only have a bit of page 4, page 5 and a little bit on page 6 to go before I'm across the top of the design:) I really do need to work on this more but I don't want to have any more than a 6 week rotation for now or I'll never get anything else done. I hope you won't get bored seeing WIP of this and the other stuff as my finishes are probably going to be few and far between for a while, although I do have one that I can't show yet. Need to get going if I'm going to do this 20 project challenge!

Hope your feeling better soon, have you been to the docs about it? There are things you can take from the pharmacy if you don't want to go on HRT just yet ((((hugs))))

Winter is looking lovely Sally. I love the lettering - very fancy and perfect for the design.

It's pretty damn windy here in the north west too ... and wet. brrrrr.

Hope you're feeling better soon. I have been having bad headaches recently too which isn't usual for me, and the only thing I've found will shift them is a tablet called Veganin. My mum told me to try them and they worked for me.

Winter is looking good. Hope you have more success that I have today with Queen. It has taken me all afternoon to do three lines of the verse lol. I hope to get the verse finished tonight but that will be it for this week.

I love the blue colors in this, you are doing so good with it.

Don't envy you the weather, sounds miserable.

She's so pretty, and I love the colors. It is such a dense stitch though I can see why it would be slow progress. I'll enjoy watching her grow as you work on her this year. Hope your head is feeling better soon.
