Sundays, as you know, are Blackbird Designs evenings so out came Blessings and Kind Wishes. The frog visited so I was not too pleased but I did get that bit ripped out and re-stitched. I like how this is looking so far.
Last night I had quite a good evening on Bygone Stitches A Quaker Christmas. I now have just over two pages to stitch on this but one is only about half a page. Once I get the S&S SAL challenge done I'm going to stitch on this for the rest of the week instead of starting something small and try and get a lot more done so that I can be on track to finish it for Christmas.
I have been trying to plan my neighbourhood for the MM&I SAL but ended up getting very frustrated and close to throwing in the towel! I decided to have a go at importing the images into Photoshop and having a play with them ( with Jessica's help as I just can't get the hang of using it) but nothing I did looked right. Anyway I had another go and feel a bit better about it now but I think I shall wait now until I get the rest of the charts I want to use.
Friday afternoon I had a visit from Chris and it was lovely to see her again. I enjoy our meet-ups as we get on really well. We had a drink, a slice of cake and a natter and it was a lovely way to spend a Friday afternoon.
I am happy to say that I am feeling a bit happier in myself. I'm not crying or feeling like crying as much as I did although I do still get times when the low feeling just overwhelms me. I have got "itchy feet" and kind of want to move but after 20 years of living here and having done a lot of work on it I don't really want to, if you understand what I mean. We can't afford to move anyway so unless we have a win on the lottery we can't! Lol! We've more or less got the house how we want it and for all it's not a perfect house it's still ours. Well it will be once the mortgage is paid off in a few years!! I just feel that we live too close to my FIL and with me not working at the moment he just thinks he can come round when he's bored and has nothing to do regardless of what I'm doing and I get so fed-up of it. I'm afraid I did say something about it one day and it came out all wrong but this is my trouble as I keep it all in and then when someone says something it all comes out how it shouldn't! On the neighbour front it hasn't been too bad of late.
Well that's all for today. I'll be stitching on Ink Circles Sea Stars tonight and hoping to get thet HUGE motif done and dusted! Thank you for your visits and your wonderful comments. I'll be catching up on blogs as soon as I've published this:)
