New Start!

Yes I know I will never finish anything if I keep starting something else but at least it's something I can finish fairly quickly unlike a HAED!! Lol! I've had Little House Needleworks Winter Wonderland kitted up for several weeks but just not got around to starting it so finally decided on Thursday evening to start it. I was going to stitch Ink Circles Sea Stars but decided against it with it being over one. Anyway I am stitching Winter Wonderland on Polstitches Nature's Grace 28 count Jobelan, which is lovely, using DMC, Crescent Colours and GAST. I am really enjoying stitching this especially as it's ages since I stitched an LHN design:) This is two evenings stitching.


Friday was my SAL day for Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers #29 Where My Heart Blooms. Unfortunately I'm finding that I can't stitch for as long so I'm not getting as much done as I would like so I still haven't got the house finished yet! I had hoped to have this one finished by the time the next one comes out ( which is soon!) but we were late starting the SAL as lots of people hadn't got all their supplies including me. It's a lovely design and I am enjoying stitching it:) Stitched on 30 count R&R Korty's Special Blend using GAST and WDW.

Wednesday evening I decided to stitch on Just Nan Queen of the Needle. Monday is my normal night stitching on this but with me not feeling well I didn't stitch at all. I didn't stitch the over one ladybugs but moved onto the next bad instead and got that stitched so tomorrow I'm onto the last band once I've stitched the ladybugs. I shall really miss not stitching on it once it's finished.
Thank you to everybody who left good wishes for me with my headaches on my last post. I'm still not feeling 100% ( far from it if I'm honest, hot, cold, feel like I'm going to pass out, mild headaches now rather than migraine) but I'm carrying on the best I can. I am not convinced that the cause of my problems is menopause but we'll have to wait and see. My blood test is tomorrow but I can't see me getting any results back before Easter as the surgery will be closed Good Friday and Easter Monday. Sorry to moan as I know there are people out there who are going through far worse things but I have no one I can talk to with my Mum and MIL being gone and my sister is next to useless.


Thank you also for all your lovely comments on my stitching:) They are very appreciated and I hope you will all continue to come visit me:)

Hugs

QOTN is fab (you know that already though!) BD is growing too, when will the next one come out then? I love Winter too, a great start and a snowman your favourite no wonder you couldn't resist it.
Hope all goes well tomorrow and the results come back quickly for you.

Karen said...

very nice stitching, hope you feel better soon

Dawn said...

QOTN is looking great and winter wonderland is stunning - I have this kitted up too but not been in the mood to start it yet :(

Hope you start to feel better soon!

Laura said...

All your WIPs are just beautiful. They are also inspiring for me. The new start bug hit me this last week as well. Take care.

Andrea said...

Love QOTN, it's looking beautiful. Ahhh Winter Wonderland...another lovely piece.
Just you moan as much as you like. We all like a good moan. Hope the blood tests go OK.

Novice Stitcher said...

You aren't moaning at all - you're sharing your feelings with friends who care about you. And you'd be the first one to be there for anyone else going through what you are. I hope you can get a proper diagnosis very soon and can get back to living life as you want to live it. Take good care. Michele

All your pieces are looking so lovely, my favorite is Queen (which you may have figured out by now, lol). Although Sea Stars is a close second. Thanks for letting me know what fabric you're using and that the floss is DMC. It looks so beautiful, I'm envious. Your new start is looking great too, LHN ones are such fun, and they are easy stitches too to give you a rest from some of the more detailed and involved ones.

So sorry to hear that you're still having difficulties. Hopefully the doctor can find something that will help. To be feeling so off and having the headaches constantly would make doing even simple things hard. And don't worry that we think you're moaning, we care and want to help which can mean being a sounding board when you need to talk. Besides, we've all been on the other side where we've needed to moan a bit. {{hugs}}

New starts are good for you in my opinion. I made one last Friday when I was feeling a bit grumpy, it cheered me up no end! (LOL) All your WIP's are looking great!

Hope you feel better soon.

Dawn said...

Michele said...

Two lovely wips up there.

Queen is looking good. I do hope you manage to get it finished for the end of the month as we had hoped Sally, and I am sorry I will not be there with you. I just dont want to force myself as I know that I will end up hating it if I do and that would be a shame as until now I have loved it.

lena-lou said...

Gosh so much to see on here since my last visit. I love the JN piece you are doing very much !!

Have a nice Easter Sally :)

Michelle said...

Your QOTN is gorgeous - I can't wait to get back to mine - but Barnabee first! I am sooo tempted to start that BBD, since I have it all kitted up. Loving yours!
