Well this last week or two has been rather different to say the least ..lol .... I came back from my travels as you know when on the Tuesday I had pain in my left side that sort of got steadily worse .... well me being me thought it will go away ... unfortunately it didn't so this last Tuesday I managed to get an appointment with the Dr for the afternoon ... sooo me being me sat and enjoyed the sunshine that we had and had an impromptu stitching day and managed to get the Travelling Pattern that we are doing over on the Friendly Stitchers finished and on its merry way to the next person :) and that was even with a couple of mouse naps ...lol
sooo the Dr's outcome after he had prodded and poked and peeled me off the ceiling ...lol .... I seem to have another Kidney stone (Walter is the one I have had for years which hasn't moved )and this new one ... think I am going to call it Rolling !!! heheheheh .... My very nice Dr gave me some pills and I am now right as rain .... ok ok not quite there yet but .....
I have also been been busy with the needle most nights for an hour or two stitching on La D Da's a bushel and a peck and I am really enjoying working on it now even after I have made a wee boo boo .... and you will need magnifiers to spot it .... mind you it would help if I had taken the latest photo in focus ...hahahah ... It was taken just before I came on here to waffle to you all ... I will take another properly ... and also I have done some more on my Rosie by LHN as well ....
oooooooo I almost forgot a couple of things ... one it was Mothers Day here across the pond in the UK last Sunday and I got some beautiful flowers and some sweetie shop sweets and a lovely necklace and an IOU on a lantern I have seen .... not allowed to get that until we have the new mouse house which paws crossed is going through ok :)
The other is The Primative Hare is having a wee competition ... I really shouldn't be telling you this though as I would love to win it heheheh , she has designed a perfect chart for all us stitchers and we can stitch it and make it up how we want and the winner will be chosen .. sooo I just had to buy the chart and I have worked out how I am going to finish it off and now all I need to do is get it started ..... watch this space ...lol
The days are rolling by soooo fast I can't keep up with them and I feel like I am on the Magic Faraway Tree with all the different lands up at the top ... mind you I would love to be able to slide down the slide they have in the tree ...lol
DD1 and I saw the most fabulous rendition of this book in a painting and would love to be able to splash out on it but at £895.00 its just a wee bit out of our pocket money range ...lol... see the link above to see her work ...
Ok doke I had better go and pop the kettle on again while I pop some photos up ... I managed to get some gorgeous shots of Master Bentley on Tuesday in the sunshine ....
