Oooooh I finished it....

Hello wonderful friends....

I had planned to pop in and leave a message with an up date yesterday, but I felt so very ill yesterday.... I knew you all would not mind waiting another day.

My stomach issue continues with no sight of the end.... I spoke with my doctor today and she has changed my anti sickness tablets, so I hope they help?  I have to go and get weighed and blood pressure checked...  It's evident I am losing weight, duh!! I think they just want to keep an eye on how much!! Food really is my enemy right now.  Every time I ate yesterday I was ill within half an hour... I am so fed up as I so want to eat normally again.  But on a good point the more weight I am loosing the better it is for my knee!! Yes I am still hobbling/limping around my home... Oooooh yes! The community physiotherapist actually came out to see me today!! I was in a little shock to say the least!  Well apparently I am doing alright! Ha ha regarding my knee!  At least I am not bed bound...hmmmm yes but I would like to walk.. And I got a little emotional when the physio said it could take years to get my leg back to what it was, that's if it does.  I am going to do everything within my power to help myself... I am being referred to the hydrotherapy pool within the hospital... I can use that facility for 12 weeks so it will be a big help when that comes through.  I want my health back so no giving up here!  It means I just have to function slower than most people! 

Enough of me... Through all my health concerns and now back blogging, taking things slow and one day at a time.  I hope to feel better each day...or every other day!

Ok.... So what have I been doing .... For me that is?? Oh yes I have been stitching!! 

I am pleased to say I have finished the Country Cottage Kids design called Little Miss Muffet from Country Cottage Needleworks.  I stitched it on 28 count Cashel opalescent and the colour was called glistening heather.  I think it was just the stitching project I needed to get back to stitching...and now to some photos...

My stitching journey...

I hope you like my finished stitching.... I tried to show the wonderful fabric but the photos really don't show it that well.  It really was a fun stitch to do...

And now for the past 2 hours I have been trying to decide what to stitch next!  Silly right?!  Hmmm decisions!!  So you will all have to wait until I post next to find out what I am stitching!

OMG!! I want to take this opportunity to say a big massive thank you to all of you wonderful people out there that sent me cards and gifts throughout my illness, in and out of hospital.  You are all so very very kind, as presently all my stitching things are all over the house I don't know how long it is going to be before I thank you all individually.... Until then...THANK YOU xx

It was my plan this year.... To do many many good things... It's all been put on hold :(  I do plan to do some wonderful things, but I just do not have the strength at the moment... So good dear friends, I ask that you are patient with me.  One day at a time :)

Thank you all for popping in and seeing what I have been up to... It's you and your comments that keep me going, so thank you!

Smiles :)


  1. Keep up positive thoughts and you will get though this. Love Miss Muffet!

  2. The hydrotherapy will benefit you in so many ways, hope you get to do that soon.
    A super stitchy finish

  3. Congrats on the cute finish.


  4. Congratulations on a lovely finish. The fabric is great too, the perfect name for it!
    Hydrotherapy sounds good too. Looking forward to hearing how you get on.

  5. Congrats on a cute finish! And I must say I love the fabric lol. The hydro pool should help hopefully!

  6. Miss Muffett is darling.
    So glad you will be doing hydrotherapy! Excellent!
    I am glad you are eating. May not be normal foods or quantities. However, the weight loss is fantastic!

  7. I love your cute little finish--the fabric is really pretty!
    So glad to hear that your knee is a little better and you can at least get around a little bit! I'm sorry your tummy is not cooperating! I hope you'll get that all worked out soon! It sounds like the hydrotherapy will be perfect for you! I hope you can start that soon!

  8. Very cute finish! Hope the stomach problems clear up soon. It's kind of a rough way to lose weight! I had to have my gall bladder taken out 4 years ago and until surgery was set, I had lost 15 pounds in one month. I could only eat yogurt, chicken noodle soup, anything bland. Anything else hurt me real bad. Sounds like the hydrotherapy could really do some good for you.

  9. Very nice finish!! Good you are getting hydrotherapy...has to be good for you!! Hope the digestion issues are sorted for you soon, bit of a drastic way to be losing weight!!

  10. Cute latest finish, the fabric you've used is beautiful.

  11. That's a very cute finish on gorgeous sparkly fabric! Hope your health continues to improve.


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