Not a lot of stitching has been done this week so there's not a lot to show! Up until last night I hadn't stitched since Sunday so there's no Quaker Christmas, Sea Stars or Letter J this week but there is Blackbird Designs Rites of Spring:) So here's my update on that from Sunday. I would have got more stitched but froggy came for a visit and I had to rip some out!
I did not feel much like stitching until last night when I stitched on my small new start which is Shepherd's Bush Shepherd's Roll which came as a kit so no sorting fabby and threads and an immediate start! This is where I'm up to so far.
We've had a few trips out this week. Tuesday afternoon we went to McCann's Wildlife Trust inbetween Atwick and Skipsea and took Abi's friend with us. We last went not long after it had opened about 7 years ago and what a huge difference. It's a lovely walk round; very quiet and peaceful. All the trees and fauna are well grown up and the lake and pond well established. Wednesday we went to The Deep in Hull which is a great place to visit. There were some new exhibits which is always good to see as it keeps your interest up. We got some really good pics so I'll share some another time. Yesterday we went to Junction 32 at Castleford for a bit of retail therapy. There are some great bargains to be had here and Jess and I bought some boots in Clarks, Abi bought a couple of games and some bits in Claire's Accessories and Carl bought a jacket. I bought Abi some new trainers which are just fantastic! They are Babycham ones and are so cool that I really wish I'd bought myself some but I thought I might be too old for them! Lol! Today we went to Beverley and took Abi's friend with us. I think I need a rest tomorrow!
Wednesday I went to the doctor's as my face/ jaw was swollen yet again and I was in a bit of pain with it too. I decided to see a different doctor this time and see if I could get some answers as to what is causing it. Anyway he decided to refer me to an ENT specialist as he thinks it could be a blockage in my saliva glands so we shall see what happens when I see the specialist. Thankfully I will be able to see him at the local hospital rather than at one of the hospitals in Hull.
I received the latest BBD Loose Feathers from Needlecraft Corner on Tuesday and it's gorgeous. I haven't been disappointed in one yet! I also bought Twisted Oaks Designs Merry Noel Collection of Stitching Smalls as it was half price then had a further 28% off in their 28th anniversary sale so it was a real bargain. It had the Dinky Dye silks with it as well as a pair of scissors.
I have received the I Love Your Blog award from Kyrie and Melissa:) Thank you so much to both of you. I truly cannot believe that I have now received this award 4 times and it means the world to me:) I know I am supposed to pass this award on to 7 blogs but as always this is being passed on to everyone who reads my blog:)
Well that's it from me for now. Hopefully next time I'll have a lot more stitching to show! Have a wonderful weekend everyone. The girls are back at school next Wednesday and I'm not looking forward to it at all! I hate it when they go back as the house is quiet.
