I have been ever so busy stitching, stitched a lot too! The only day I did not stitch was yesterday (Tuesday) as I had two hospital appointments. Ha ha in two different hospitals! That was fun! Oh don't worry I am fine.... The first appointment was for the last fitting of my 'bionic' leg brace. It's been specially made and fitted and will hopefully be ready in a few weeks time. Then the other appointment was to see a specialist!! Yes one at last!! He said what I already knew! Ho hum! This was a back consultant and he said I have lower back problems...duh! I know!! I feel the pain daily!! They cannot do anything with me as I am not mobile enough! Ha ha so I have to wait for the appointment to see the knee specialist consultant ... Jon checked its the same person I saw for my back! Why I just could not have a double appointment I don't know?! Anyway he knows all about my knee and whilst checking my back out explained that I needed a knee replacement! Yes I know! But as yet they have not decided what to do with me! So I have to wait more!! Ho hum! Well gives me more time to stitch! Hmmmm
So there you have it.... Waiting again! Trying to stay positive and happy...being here blogging is helping a LOT!!
I guess you all want to see what I have been stitching then?
Oooh I have been busy!
As you all know I was doing ever so well with the Prairie Schooler design Prairie Garden.. Ha ha I was one square, one flower away from finishing! Ha ha but put in down, as I was distracted! Oh yes this happens a lot!!
So here is what I was distracted with,.. It's adorable....

With my scissors so you can see they are a lovely size too. I am stitching them on 28 count pearl linen in flax colour... I am loving how it's looking :) I have decided to stitch them 4x3... After thinking a lot on how to display them. More on that as they come out!!
And my Prairie Schooler design.... YES!!! Is finished!!
