Hello friends 😋 FNSI update 😊

Happy weekend!! And how wonderful it is to of stitched with you all over the world..... In my side bar there is FNSI picture... Click it, it's a quick link....come join in next time?!

Wonderful to be back.... I thought that darn head cold was never going to shift.  It's left me feeling totally exhausted and fatigued.... Just as well I am stuck in bed as I really have no energy to do anything. Well not strictly true! I have energy to stitch! Saying that though, this last week I think I only managed 3 days actual stitching, just so very tired so I slept...only now it feels like I have not slept in months! Ha ha 

Onto what I have been up to..... Ha ha stitching!! Of course!!

It is the wonderful Miss Mary Ann Bournes 1791 from the design studios of Hands Across The Sea Samplers 😊

Here is where I left off on my last update...

And here is what I have managed to stitch on this wonderful journey....

Finished the bird...

And a little more...

The little motifs are adorable...

This is where I am now....

The q snap frame I have it in measures 17" x 17" and that is pretty much full! This is only quarter on the design....oooooh I have completed quarter of the design!! Yipppppeeee!!

Still loving stitching this design ..... Heaps!!

What else has been going on? Hmmmmm

Well I have found another food I can eat! Butter beans! Mmmmm jon, bless him gave me a bowl full! Ooh do you like my little mat on my tray? It was a very kind gift from Sue (kiwikid) ... I love it!!

Far too many butter beans! I am still not eating normal amounts of food... Gave these butter beans a good go.. Look what I left!

Saved some for later and much later! Ha ha

Ok going now, thank you for popping in..... I have something awesome to show you all in my next post... I did a spot of retail therapy! 

Smiles to you all for a happy weekend 😊xx
