I have been keeping myself busy. Early hours of this morning Jon left on transport to Stanmore hospital for his weeks assessment. I have spoken with him, he has Internet!! He is being put through the mill with a load of tests being done on him. He is enjoying it as he is hopeful of the outcome... They have already said he will be going back for a 6-8 week reabilitation program, this is great news. But he told me not to get my hopes up as he has been told it's a long long road to recovery he is on, with no guarantee that he will even regain 50% mobility/posture back. Anything is a bonus!!
So like I say I have been keeping busy...stitching!
Han and her friend went to London today, for a day out. And I got some nice presents!! Lucky me!! I would of liked to of joined them in London but there was no way I was up to it. So instead Han brought me back the most amazing present!!
Yes an actual Liberty of London bag!!!! Eeeeeeeeeek!!!
Not just any fabric.....Liberty of London fabric!!!
Han chose the fabric herself and thought I would love them! Doh! Yes I love them!!!
Close up.... And they are huge pieces!!
I am over the moon with my present :)
I have always wanted to feel, touch and smell Liberty fabrics... They are so smooth, quite silky and smell divine! Now I have some!!! Omg! What shall I do with them? A very special project I think! Or will I just keep them in their bag and take them out now and then to feel?! Ha ha
And that is not all....
Apparently this is from the actual shop where macaroons are made! Mmmm Han says the main shop is in Paris but they have one in London.
And a gift box inside!! Oooooh!!
How delicious do these look?!... The flavours are, liquorice, early grey tea, coffee, salted caramel, strawberry marshmallow, chocolate, Marie antoinett- lemon grass tea and minted ice.
Goodness!!! They are so delicate, surprised that they made it back almost in one piece! Mmmmm
Han had a great time although was disappointed that the Tate closed at 6pm!
Onto my stitching...
Here is the Scarlet Letter Mary Gail I should of showed you all before! Although I have stitched more now! You will have to wait for the next up date!
It's coming along nicely. I am really enjoying stitching this too.
And now for the update of my first HAED, the challenge is to do 100 stitches a day... Think I am doing ok... For now! It's growing quite quickly. Lol can't see what it is yet!?
It's William Morris the Strawberry Theif! Of course it is!
I have made tabs at the top of my blog, one for each of the two massive designs I am stitching right now! Feel free to pop in there and take a look at my progress anytime :)
So I am working on these two designs for now.... Oooh but I have my Joyful Journal series I need to stitch for September! Gosh that has come around quick!!
I cannot believe it's almost September....
Hope your all well and busy stitching :)
Smiles to you all :)
