With my anniversary sampler that is providing Belinda doesn't mind me leaving off two flower rows! There is no way, even with the best intentions, that I can stitch every bit so I thought if I left those two out it wouldn't look silly so that is what I am going to do. So here's my progress as off yesterday.
I had planned to put 1986 to 2011 after our names but Abi said it would make it look as if we'd died so I unpicked what I'd got stitched and started over so it will now say 25 yrs! So, fingers crossed, this will be finished very soon. I bought 14 metres of ribbon yesterday ( 7 metres of 2 colours) for a ruched ribbon edge. Do you think I'll have enough????
My evening on SB Emmanuel's Song with Barb and Colleen went rather well although I will admit to finishing the row another day as I didn't quite get it done and I was enjoying it. These darning rows look so lovely and are quite quick to do really although this one was a large one! I can't wait to finish this now so that I can get it hung on the wall but I think it'll take a few more weeks yet. It is looking so pretty even though I say so myself :)
Last night was my Prairie Schooler evening so a bit of progress on Daffodils. Still building the house but nearly there. Almost got the roof on!
Hopefully Lisa and I are starting our My Big Toe Designs A New Day SAL next week depending on SWL goes. If I get it finished we're starting on Wednesday. I still need to get my fabric cut and prepared yet so really must get that done maybe over the weekend. I'm really looking forward to starting this :) Also have The Sanctuary SAL to look forward to with Chris:)
Abi finished school for Easter today so no more having to get up early if I don't feel like it! I probably still will but we'll see what happens! DH finishes on Wednesday for almost two weeks:)
Now I would like to ask for some good thoughts please. I found a lump so I went to the doctors on Tuesday. She is 99% sure it isn't anything but she would rather be 100% so has referred me urgently to the breast clinic. and then I get seen within 2 weeks otherwise I'd have a 6 week wait. Now guess when I go? On my 25th wedding anniversary! At first I said no but then I decided to just get it over with. It's in the morning so we'll be back in plenty of time to go away for the night. I wasn't feeling too bad until Tuesday evening when I got the phone call from the hospital to say they had an appointment for me then I started to panic. I have been in this situation before but it still doesn't make it any easier.
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post:)
Time to go think about what we're going to have to tea then I can settle down this evening to some stitching :)
Have a great weekend.
Love & hugs
