We did not go to Ellas 18th as it would have meant Martin driving back in the dark,at that point he had not had his eye done so he did not want to drive that far and not be able to see properly. Here is a pic of my 2 grandaughters on the same day a few days before the 18th
My son in law with Sues dad ,
So now onto the stitching and reading bit. Well quite a bit finished in the last couple of weeks and some wips too. Stash has been acquired and books too .However before the stitching here is what Martin erected a few weeks ago.
One of the things I have been to the hospital for is my eyes they are monitoring it every 3 months . I am terrified I will lose my sight and my two great loves of stitching and reading may be lost. Still I cannot think of that now I am sure all will be well. I still manage to stitch over one with the help of my light and really good magnifier.I find though by the end of the evening things are beginning to double up. Talking about over one , this is the latest thing I am doing . It is a design by Carolyn Manning , it is called A flower a day as it was a stitch along she ran a while ago ,she has lots of wonderful designs and I do not think it will be the last I do. This is how far I have got.
I think by now you are really fed up with seeing all these photos ,but I know you will be too polite to say so.
Martin has just gone to get his mum as she is coming for Sunday lunch. I hope there are not too many mistakes in this ,just needed to get a post done today . Hope you are all well and stitching away furiously . I am stitching on Grandmas Quilt tonight another in the farmhouse series. No time to show stash but maybe next time . Will try to be soon ,as Hilda Baker used to say. Now I can hear you saying WHO.
Take care my friends and give me a nudge if I leave it too long next time. Photo hunt the end of this week argh !!! must take photos.
