Isn't it amazing what you can actually achieve when you get off the computer and stitch! Last week I gave myself another two sessions on Little House Needleworks Be Merry- Belle Merry to finish this beauty BUT last night I sat down straight after I'd washed the pots up and set about stitching. This is the result! Not a brilliant photo as it's rather dull and miserable here today.

I have loved every single stitch of this and thank you Lisa and Lesleyanne for SAL-ing with me. I look forward to our next one later in the year :)
Monday evening was SB SAL night ( can you tell I am loving my SALs!!!) with Barb and Colleen. I am eagerly waiting to see what Barb chose to start after her finish of The Journey last week and seeing if Colleen has finally rounded up her sheep after a visit from the frog last week :) When I put Emmanuel's Song away on Monday evening I was half way through the wording so last night, after finishing Belle, I finished the wording and did the next row too. This is such a soothing piece to stitch with the pastel shades.
Finally my progress on my 25th wedding anniversary piece from Tuesday evening. I am planning on stitching this tonight as well as I need to get a move on with it. I am stitching this with good ole DMC on 32 count white evenweave.
My Blackbird Designs A Stitcher's Journey finally arrived on Monday and let me tell it was well worth the wait! I have to admit that I would like to stitch every single thing in it. If you are thinking about this book and not sure what to do I would highly recommend it. It is well worth the money!
These are just a few of the projects that are in the book that I would start tomorrow if I didn't have other things to stitch at present! Lol!
Abi had her blood tests on Monday and I am popping up to the surgery for the results shortly although I am sure had there been anything they would have been in touch anyway. She was ever so brave but started shaking, sweating and crying and I thought she was going to pass out. I have never seen her this bad before. Thankfully the nurse was very good and put wet, cold paper towels on her forehead and neck to cool her down. Needless to say I brought her home rather than her going back to school.
Time for me to dash and get to the surgery!
Thank you for visiting me and for all your lovely comments. I truly appreciate each and every one of them and love reading them :)
Take care everyone.
Love & hugs
