Reveal Day!

It's reveal day for the S&S monthly SAL challenge:) This month's freebie chart was Drawn Thread The Caron Keeper which was a lovely quick stitch and easy to make up:) I chose to finish it as on the chart so here's my version.Drawn Thread The Caron Keeper
Caron Waterlilies ( colours used not as charted)

I sent this off to Paula for her birthday ( Happy Birthday Paula!) so I added our initials on the back and the year. I hope she received it safely and I kept my promise of no green things:) Lol! OK so there's green on the keeper!

Indigo Rose The Bee Charmer is going well. I'm just about done with the stitching and probably would have been had I not been stitching and watching Dr Who at the same time! Lol!

Tonight is SAL night with Nic so I'm looking forward to that. I'm hoping to get a bit more stitched than I did last week!

My eldest DD Jess has just started a blog. She loves sketching so has created it to show them off. She says it probably won't get updated very often but I was wondering if you could pop over to say hello and just give her a bit of encouragement please if you have time? I think she'd be really happy:) Her blog is http://sketchyskyline.blogspot.com/

Thank you everybody for your lovely wishes for our wedding anniversary yesterday:) We just had a quiet day with DH being at work then he went to his Dad's last night to watch the speedway on Sky Sports ( we don't have the sports or movie channels) so it was just me and the girls! Lol! I was feeling a bit fed-up anyway after looking through our wedding photos as I looked so pretty and thin!

My DH has to go for a kidney function scan next month. He had kidney stones before we got married and had to have surgery. A few years ago he had to have more surgery to open up the tubes as they were narrow then we discovered that because the tubes had been narrow and he'd had the stones there'd been damage to his right kidney and it doesn't work as it should. So the consultant just wants to keep an eye on things and see how well ( or not) it's functioning. We're not unduly worried as it doesn't cause him any problems and the consultant is quite happy not to see him again until next year.

Have wonderful Sunday! We're forecast to get heavy rain today. Hope not as I have Abi's PE kit to get dry for tomorrow!
Hugs
