When I opened the first parcel I was in awe at this beautiful piece Lizzy had stitched for her blogoversary giveaway. It is from the 2008 JCS Ornament issue and it's Honor Christmas by Forget Me Not In Stitches.
When I opened the second parcel I found the LHN chart Hen Party, which I absolutely love, as well as the threads to stitch it with. Tucked inside wrapped in pink tissue paper was a gorgeous Kelmscott butterfly thread winder. I have to keep picking everything up and having another look as I love it all so much. Lizzy you have well and truly spoilt me and I thank you from the bottom of my heart and wish I could come on over and give you a huge HUG and have a Hen Party with you. There will be an email on the way shortly right after I've gone upstairs to finish cleaning my bathroom! LOL!
At the weekend I finished up my biscornu for February for the Basket of Biscornu SAL. I chose a hearts design after seeing it on Irene's blog. It looked so pretty so I downloaded the chart right away.

I made some good progress on my BBD piece Beyond My Heart on Sunday evening once I'd torn myself away from Abi's Mario Kart game on the Wii. I think I'm addicted! I would like to finish this piece by the end of March but not sure I can make it as I still have quite a lot to do.
Finally last night I stitched my last evening for February on Needleprint Beatrix Potter Quaker Sampler. I am taking it slowly but surely on this one as I'm stitching it one over one on 25 count and really don't want to have to frog as it's a nightmare!
My appointment with the ENT specialist last Thursday went well and I don't have to see him anymore unless things become worse. The scan didn't show anything so that was good news so when I have any problems I have to massage my face or eat tart foods like lemon. He also asked about my ear so I told him I'd had another infection since I'd seen him last. He did say my ear looked much better than it did the last time I saw him but he gave me a steroid cream (how the hell I get it in my ear I do not know but he said to put some on the end of my finger, apply it and it'll work its way in!) which I have to use for two months.
I think that's all for now. I better go and finish off my bathroom then I'll publish this! LOL! After lunch I'll have a catch up on blogs. Thank you to all of you who continue to visit me. It truly means a lot to me to know that there are people who read my ramblings and look at what I'm stitching/ have stitched.
Take care everyone.
