Today is my dear friend Chris' birthday. Happy Birthday Chris! Hope you are having a lovely day. Now this year I wanted to do something a little bit different and this is something that I have only ever made once before and that's a stitcher's wallet type thing lol! I had a text from Chris a little while ago saying that she loves it so I can now show it. I loved stitching this for her and I am so glad that she likes it.

That is all I have to show today. I did stitch on BBD AotH Snow Garden last night but will show my little bit of progress another time. I am having issues with the GAST colours in the house as the ones I have look nothing like the colours in the photo on the chart! It's amazing how different dye lots can be isn't it?
Thank you for all the good wishes etc for my Dad. I had another scare this morning and had to go rushing to his house not sure what I was going to find but he had slept in ( very unusual for him) and was amazed to find out what the time was! I think my BP must have gone sky high in my panic! Anyway today we have to get him to the surgery for an ECG as his BP is very low as is his pulse rate which may have contributed to his fall on Monday ( although he says he's fine!) and he had some blood taken when the nurse came yesterday so we'll see what happens after that. I have to admit with worrying myself silly about my Dad and other things I am feeling like a complete failure at the moment.
On a happier note my Blackbird Designs Joyeux Noel booklet arrived this week and I absolutely love it. And have you seen the sneak peak of Shakespeare's Peddlar Jenny Bean Creation Sampler ???? I love the look of it so far! Must remember I am trying to stitch from my stash!!!!
Have a good weekend everyone. I am hoping to relax a bit and hoping for at least one day off from crying!!!!
Love and hugs
