I’m not sure how I’m going to finish this up as yet but it’ll either be as it is on the chart or a pinkeep. Thank you so much Lizzy for sending me the chart and threads in my prize package. I loved stitching this.
Sunday evening I was determined to get BBD Beyond My Heart finished but as I was stitching the border on the right hand side I discovered I’d made a mistake on one of the flower stems and had no choice but to rip it out as the border would not go right! So Monday I unpicked what I had to, re-stitched it and finished the border! So no BP stitching for me Monday this week! There are a few mistakes on it plus I shamelessly stole Christine's idea if stitching big cross stitches instead of eyelets on the baskets! I can never get a good picture of this but I think if you click on it it should be clearer.

I forgot to show my progress on HAED QS Girly Gothic and here we are it’s Wednesday again and I shall be stitching on this again tonight! If you have not had a look yet pop on over to the Our Friends HAED SAL blog where there are many wonderful HAED designs being stitched on. I joined the blog a few weeks ago and it’s a fantastic place to whip up some extra enthusiasm to keep on stitching on HAEDs! Believe it or not one afternoon last week I actually got Guardian (my HAED BAP) out of the draw to see if I could sort something for the metallic stitches. I know that if I carry on using metallic thread I will never stitch on it, as there is loads, so I am subbing it for DMC 3865 and as the metallic I have already stitched can’t be unpicked without making an awful mess I am stitching over it and it looks OK. It may be a while before I actually get back to it properly but I will one day!
Last night I decided to have a new start. I wasn’t actually planning on starting it until Sunday but I wasn’t in the mood for picking up Bea or the Halloween ornament I’d made a small start on so I sorted some threads and fabby for Midnight Stitching Quaker Faith Hope Love and made a small start on that. I am stitching it on 40 count white fabric (I have never used it before but it’s lovely to stitch on). I couldn’t decide whether to stitch it monochrome or using three colours so with Abi’s help we came up with three colours, two Carrie’s Creations and one Victorian Motto! The one you see in the photo is Carrie’s Creations Cherry Popsicle!
Time for me to go now and try and caught up on blogs. Thank you to everyone that left good wishes for my blood tests and scan. They are much appreciated. Blood tests are over with now so just waiting for the results which should be back at the end of the week or beginning of next week then I just have to wait for the scan.
Take care everyone.
PS Hmmm my blog does not seem to be showing as updated in Google Reader. I hope you'll all still manage to find me! ETA It seems to be fixed now. Must have been a bit of a glitch.
