Hello :)

Hello lovely people.... I am so happy to be here :)

No not feeling any better.. if anything a little worse :(  But decided to try to think and stay positive :)  Just will keep taking the iron supplements and hope they kick in after a few weeks.  

Well I have been trying to stay busy... well ok I have been trying to do things!  Yes done some stitching..

Thought I would finish the Blue Ribbon Design called "Established With Love"... yes started it a little while ago and now was the time to complete it!

Here is how I left it when I started it a little while ago...

In a bag... stored away...

This is what I stitched then....

Here is what I have done when I had a break today... its my work table on my lap :)

And yes I carried on stitching and finished it...

I made it into a really small cute pin cushion... I just love it :)

I made the edging too... from 2 of the colors I used stitching it.

Now all I have to do is perfect filling and making sure it says square!  I think I am getting better.. but its the fun aspect for me.  If I dont enjoy what I am doing I wont do it!

I think it rather odd... looking at the photos's of the middle yellow windows.. they are the same yellow... but for some rather odd reason they look a total different color?!  Not sure why?

Its so super cute I am going to have to see if there are any more in this range as I think I would like to stitch more.... I would even do this one again!  I loved it :)

Well still trying to eat healthily and more green things to help boost my iron... today I had steamed salmon with a sweet chilli sauce and steamed broccoli.

And thought I would show you my next project.... 

Its a 'first' for me.... a fun stitch I am sure and really looking forward to it :)

Well that really is it!

Happy stitching to you all...

Smiles :)

  8. Hello Jacquie

    Sweet little finish, you've made it up beautifully (:

  9. Lovely finish Jacquie, hope that you're feeling better soon.x

  10. Keep it up with that apple juice and healthy foods! You will be better soon. :)
    That is a precious, little pincushion.

  11. Oh my goodness! I can't believe how fast you finished this cute little stitch up. Love all the bright colors in it. Great job on the finish!

    Then you turn around and tease us! Showing us a picture of your next project with just the fabby and the threads! Love both but now I feel a need to know what the stitch is!

    You feel better soon. I'm still dealing with the confusion of all the meds and how to take them. Just when I think I have it all set, I get confused all over again!

    I'm just going to have a relaxing couple of hours with my stitching.

  12. Great ending! Pincushion is beautiful, interesting tape:-))
    The food is healthy, the iron will be added!
    A lot of energy to a new embroidery, I'm curious:-))

  13. So sorry to hear you're still under the weather. Hope the supplements kick in soon. Lovely stitching and cute finish. Take care, my friend

  14. You are super speedy with the finishing! Such a cute ornie. I am intrigued by your new start too.
    When I worked at the holiday camp one of the comedians started his show by saying "It's nice to be here. It's nice to be anywhere, but I'll stay here because it is closer"
    30 years on and that is still engraved in my mind from listening to it all summer! That and "Hello Mary-Lou, Goodbye Heart"

  15. Mmm, your dinner looks lovely, I'm a big fan of salmon. What a cute stitch! Your cording is beautiful :) Best wishes.


How wonderful that you have popped in to visit me.
Thank You so much for taking time to leave a comment.
