Today was one of those days we really don't want to repeat in a hurry! Lol! As I said in my previous post Abi was seeing a consultant on Wednesday about the stye she had. Well my poor baby got herself in such a state when we got to the appointment that she was damned near having a panic attack but thankfully the staff were brilliant and made sure we didn't have too long a wait to be seen. Her consultant was fantastic and decided that because she was so nervous just seeing him he would remove what turned out to be a cyst, rather than a stye, under general anaesthetic rather than a local. Next thing we knew he's ringing admissions to get her in as soon as possible! He really went above and beyond and we ended up in a specialist eye clinic today with her first on his list so she didn't have to wait and get worked up. Abi was so brave, I was so proud of her. I know to some it may not be a big deal but she's never had any experience of this before and she is a worrier ( like me) but she took it all in her stride. I was very emotional after I'd left her when she'd gone " to sleep" but the staff were wonderful. You hear such stories about hospitals these days but we were treated so well and Abi was well looked after. So she now has a bit of a bruised eyelid and it's rather swollen but the cyst is gone at long last :) hopefully never to return. We are so glad it's all over now.
Right onto my stitching:) I managed to finish block 5 on Shores before 1st June although I did stitch on it an extra evening to get it done. I am not particularly looking forward to the next block as I'm going to tackle the biggy in the middle! I did enjoy block 5 though and really love how this one looks.
After the little bit I did on Chatelaine Spring Morning I couldn't wait to get back to it again so I finished the lily of the valley part barring some back stitching and moved onto the next bit and this is where I'm at now. I am enjoying this piece again so much and intend on keeping this in my rotation now until it is finished. I'm going to add all the beads once the stitching is done.
Now onto the hunky angel! As promised I've picked up HAED Guardian this week:) I stitched a little bit on Tuesday and more on Wednesday and I think I did around 300 stitches in total. It felt good to be stitching on this again.
I've also started and finished a small gift but will show that once it's all finished up and been received. I might get that done this weekend if I'm lucky:)I think I've got my measurements sorted for the mattress pinkeep I'm going to make up with Drawn Thread Spot of Spring so there's something else I may do over the weekend!
I have to say that I have really been enjoying my stitching so much more of late. I haven't been spending quite so much time on the PC on an evening so have been getting much more done.
Right time for me to go off to check on Miss Abi, get relaxed and get Shores out!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
