Or is it simply my brain not working??? I picked up Blue Ribbon Designs Stitched with Love last night and found a mistake on the left hand heart! Now I panicked as I thought I was going to have to frog the whole heart and it's contents but on closer inspection I noticed that the lilac parts above lined up as they should and found my silly mistake. This only needed a few stitches unpicking. As I went along and started the vine next to the heart I realised that something else was amiss. You know the rhyme Now I Know My ABC's??? Well it would appear that I don't and my alphabet was missing an I!!!! So I frogged A to H and restitched it all, this time making sure I had the I :) Phew! So this is my progress as of around 10.15 last night! I'll pick it again this evening and hope for no more visits from said frogs!
Friday and Saturday evening was my usual BBD AotH nights and I alternated between the over one wording and the other bits. As this one is going to be dedicated to my paternal grandparents I've stitched a B on the door as that is the initial of their surname and my maiden name :) I am hoping that I will be able to finish this block over the next two evenings I pick it up.
Sunday evening I decided I wanted a new start but was torn between Dandy Dreams and Spot of Winter but as I've had Spot of Winter for ages and have the other spots stitched I decided on that one. I stitched a little more on it yesterday afternoon and this is where I'm at. I'm thinking I might do more this afternoon.
Monday was SAL night with Barb and Colleen and our SB pieces. I am well over halfway now on Emmnauel's Song and after checking my chart I see I have about 10 rows of speciality stitches, a row of wording and two rows of cross stitch ( including the one I'm doing) then I'm done with the stitching and I can add the beads and buttons! Lol!
The last few days have not been good after a suspected bout of cystitis for me over the weekend, a bout of vertigo for me starting Monday and family disagreements for DH. I am truly fed-up and there's no wonder I think things will never improve as it just seems to be one thing after another!
I am hoping my new stash from Anita might arrive today. Once I've finished the spot I'm going to start Dandy Dreams then next week I'll probably start PS Daffodils if it has arrived. I need something bright and cheerful! Then, of course, I have the my Big Toe A New Day SAL with Lisa and the DT Sanctuary SAL with Chris to look forward to.
Well time for me to go and catch up on blogs:)
Take care everyone.
