I have been out in the garden taking a few pictures as everything has started to bloom ,my favourite rose is the header this time. Not sure of its name but it is a pretty one.Whilst I am typing this Martin (bless him) is out mowing the lawns ,the smell of fresh mown grass is wafting through the house. Any of you like pink , hmm this rhododendron is
Well here is the Wordplay June, I stitched the word Strawberry in red rather than the walnut it called for.
I have also finished Peace by Little House Needleworks that I am Stitching along with Sally ,I finished this on the same night as her so feel quite pleased with myself as usually Sally is a little ahead of me. Now for Courage ,when it arrives eh Sally.
Speaking of courage ,I went with trepidation to the drs to get the results of blood test etc and was told I am diabetic. So lots of appointments to come, I have been put on meds as my glucose levels were through the roof ,but although I have been given that news I have to admit it explains and awful lot. The nurse said this has been brewing for years ,tell me why have they not tested for it before now. Oh well it can only really be good in a way, as I am on a strict diet now and this afternoon when I took Ollie for his walk I felt better than I have for ages . Not exactly striding along but quicker and in less pain. Whoopee who would welcome having a result like that -Me!!
Anyway you remember I was mentioning Caitlin my 15 year old grandaughter who was having problems at school , she thought no one loves her ,so I have just made her a little cushion to keep on her pillow. It is the You are so loved by Snowflower Diaries, I changed the colours to her new bedroom colours as Orange would not go .
So thats the stitching news , I have a little stash , a new pattern which I am awaiting fabric for . A few buttons and charms I have ordered. Martin organised a workshop on Silk ribbon embroidery with Ann Cox and when he went over to introduce her to the ladies he bought me these .
Hugs and much love
