Well can you believe it is almost the end of March?! Where did it go? So time for my March Stitch From Stash report before the week gets away from me and I'm too late to do it.
Firstly from my stash I started Country Cottage Needleworks Frosty Forest Racoon Cabin. Ooops I put Little House Needleworks on the photo!
I also started Cottage Garden Samplings My Garden Journal April's Daisy.
Day 6 of The Little Stitcher 12 Days of Christmas was started.
Day 5 was finished.
Progress was made on Country Cottage Needleworks The Tea Room.
Little House Needleworks The North Wind.
Lone Elm Lane Snow Angel.
And Brightneedle Lo How A Rose. Unfortunately when I finished my skein of DMC 3022 and started my new skein the difference between the two was very noticeable so I am going to have to frog what I had already stitched in it so I was not a happy bunny!
I did spend a wee bit more in March. I was sick of going to my local shop and paying 80 p for DMC when I ran out sooooo I went through what I am using at the moment and put a small order together for Cross Stitch Heaven and spent £7.83 including postage on 17 DMC.
So that's my report for March.
On Friday I had a lovely surprise through the post from my lovely friend and SALing partner Shirlee. She sent me a beautiful belated birthday card and gift of Little House Needleworks Hands to Work with the fabric and threads to stitch it with. Thank you so much dear Shirlee. I'm looking forward to stitching this one and getting it on my wall. Hope you received the email I sent :)
Abi and I went to the mere again this morning then we decided to have a look at the stream / dyke that runs from there to the sea at the end nearer to the sea. A kingfisher had been spotted there on Friday so we wanted to try and spot it ourselves. Unfortunately we didn't see it but we did see 4 water voles which are supposedly becoming quite rare. I managed to snap this one sunning itself on the bank. Not a good photo as my camera doesn't take very clear photos when you have to zoom well in.
In the field next to the road going to the mere we spotted sweet little lambs.
I love this beautiful black swan.
This swan was looking to see what Abi had.
And these were taken last week in the memorial gardens.
I am back at the drs tomorrow early on. I am feeling brighter and hope it is going to last as I am just so fed up of feeling ill. My dr suggested I see my dentist to rule out any dental problems so off I went last Wednesday. A good examination, an x ray and £18 less in my pocket showed nothing. No shadows on my jaw, no problems with my teeth, clear nasal passages and sinuses. I am beginning to think I have just got very run down and am tensing up which might cause discomfort and pain but who knows. I feel as though a damned good cry would help but it just doesn't come. I daren't cry in front of people so hold it in then I can't cry!
Well that's it for this time. Way behind reading and commenting so I really must apologise.
Until next time.
With much love
