Thursday 31 st July 2014... Almost August.... gosh!!
Good evening everyone...
I really have no idea why I seem to be a day out when I post? Hmmm ok well I just checked the clock and its almost midnight again! eeek!! ha ha So there goes Wednesday and hello Thursday! ha ha I will try to post earlier on the actual day and not a day behind I think! So I will take this as Thursdays post as its almost that now anyway! And no doubt.. I will post again ... much later!? Hmmm but hopefully not midnight!
Gosh I ramble!!
So hope that kind of made some sense? ha ha
What have I been doing? Went to the hospital with Jon.. Oh he is fine, thank you all for you well wishes to him :) He just gets tired quickly these days... but coffee and cakes fixes that! The physio wants to put Jon in the hydro pool.. I am really not keen at all... see they would use a material hoist to get him in there and well he has used one before and lets just say he suffered for days afterwards from using it. So there is that putting me off and the fact they expect me to prepare him to go in the pool and then when he comes out too... then I am to get him in the car afterwards... I just dont think at this stage its beneficial for him. But I was made to feel so guilty in front of the physio as they just said we think it will help him, we think this and that.... I tried to say I live with him and I know his pain and after the first time they tried this in 2010 it just caused pain to Jon. And I naturally dont want to see him in pain this is why I spoke up... so they told us to go away and discus it... Jon is thinking along the same lines as me and does not feel ready yet to do hydro therapy. This whole thing just left me feeling awful...
What have I been doing then....
Oooh yes more of my mums table runner...
Still working on it and having fun too.... When I have finished stitching then I have to figure out what to do with them? hmmm I was thinking to frame each one with the 2 fabrics I used for the aplique then... I have no clue! ha ha ... maybe I guess just join them up and add a backing and wa-la?! lol hmmm I bet it s harder than that! I will give it a go..
Oooh yes about the pens.. yes I do have a purple invisible special pen that Jon bought me awhile go for drawing with as it disappears and just shows the stitching. I tried it but just cannot get on with it as it disappears to darn quick! So now I use the really fine tip pencils and my stitching covers the lines fine.
Whilst out today I needed some Blu tack .. I was just giggling in the isle at this... Blu tack but its pink! Should be pink tack!! ha ha a I tell you I just laugh at the silliest of things!
A little while ago I went onto Abby Rose Designs blog and they were hosting a chart giveaway... as soon as I saw it I liked it.. a very pretty design called... "Home is where you hang your needlework"
I posted the envelope in the picture too as I loved the stamps! They are fireworks with the American flag... really pretty stamps too :)
Here is the chart...
I will not be starting this one until I have finished my Blue Ribbon Designs Happy chart... its looking good and I am almost ready to start the border :)
Well I best wrap this up!
