First of all thank to everyone who left good wishes and hugs for Abi :) They were all greatly appreciated. She returned to school yesterday after feeling rather rough for a few days. Her eye is now almost back to the pre-cyst days which we are very thankful for:)
At long last I stitched up a little RAK for Nicola. Last year she very kindly sent me her BBD Their Song chart when she had stitched it up ( and I still haven't stitched it yet even though my fabby and threads are all ready!) so I decided to stitch the Sweetheart Sampler stocking from the February stocking booklet. Instead of using red thread I decided to do something a little different and chose Carrie's Creations Banana Split and backed it with an autumnal material. Nicola received it yesterday and loves it so I am pleased:)

RAK for Nicola
After Abi's surgery last Friday I didn't get much stitching done in the evening due to a return of the headache I'd had on and off all week so I didn't get much done on Shores. I did, however, manage to get the dolphin ( ?) stitched on Saturday night. There actually looks to be loads of stitching in this double block but I think it may not take as long as I think it will!! Time will tell:)
Since breaking Chatelaine Spring Morning out from the depths of my fabric box I have really been enjoying stitching on it. I had forgotten what a gorgeous piece this was and would love to stitch Autumn Dusk next to make up the four in the series and as I have it in my stash it may well get started this year ( just don't quote me on that!!!!)
Finally the angel that Dani wouldn't mind eating crackers in her bed!! ( Dani I LOL'd at this when I read your comment!) Having said he could eat them in my bed too!!!! I didn't get much done on him this week so am hoping next week I can get the page finished and move onto page 5 which is only a small page!
It's all hell let loose in our house at the moment as Jess is home from university for the summer! We've had to sweetheart my father-in-law to store some of her stuff in his spare bedroom as we just don't have room for it here. It's nice to have her home though!
I think we may be getting some decent weather tomorrow so I may sit out in the garden and stitch. It's been so cold again this week. We really need some sun!
Thank you to all of you for your continued visits and comments. They mean so much xx
Have a wonderful weekend!
