Monday 30 th June 2014...

Hello to all you lovely people out there!

I have been stitching away and finished my strawberry design...  I did have many ideas about how to finish it... but went with this... Something I have not tried yet and it was a little tricky but I think it looks ok.    I put a red fabric on the back... same as the strawberries.  Its a friendship pillow :)

I also stitched something for a friend too.. using the lavender ... after taking some really useful tips on board I put a few of the lavender bits into a little hand made square and then put that inside the little pin cushion I made,.. I love the smell of it... so calming... I will have to make me one!! ha h a

The little pin cushion stitch..

And it all wrapped up ready to post..

I love sending gifts out...  Birthdays are a great time to send gifts out :)  

Well today has been an interesting day.. and useless one too.  I had to take Jon to another hospital appointment today.   Today we thought for a CT scan... recommended by our family doctor as Jon has been getting bad head aches and his right eye lid had drooped as well as loosing some vision from that eye.  So a CT scan was going to check if anything was going on, one thing that was to be ruled out was a tumor.. I think it would be nice to know.  So we saw the neurologist today and thought it was a CT scan too.. erm.. no!  The neurologist only duplicated what the doctor said and agreed that Jon needed a CT scan!  So you see a wasted journey really... now we have to wait for another appointment... this time for the CT scan!  No idea as to how long that is going to be?

Never a dull moment here!!

Its Han's turn tomorrow!! ha ha she has to see the doctor, an early 8.30 am appointment!    Like I say never a dull moment here!

I WILL be stitching my 'happy' design tomorrow as I want to work on it... so up date tomorrow on that :-)

Ok... off I go... 

Smiles and sunshine to you all :)
