Hello everyone ,
Well I am back still not 100% yet but getting there , my daughter still has her cold and that's been 3 weeks , so looks like another week for me.
I am feeling allot better and yesterday we went out for the first time , it was just nice to get out for a few hours .
I also walked around the garden today and the bulbs are really pushing their way up .
I also picked some Christmas roses , I love them they are so pretty .
Thank you everyone for the wonderful comments from last time and thank you for the gifts which have been so many .
I am happy to say I am back to my stitching and other hobbies , I have been sorting and making a list of what to stitch for this coming year , I have started a new SAL which you will see over the next few months , I have also spotted a few large stitching kits I want to stitch for my home so will be buying those soon. I have sorted also a big box of smalls which I will rotate with my larger stitching and I am hoping each year now to get some of my WIPs finished .
I really love stitching the best out of all my hobbies and know it's good for relaxing my mind I go off in another world when stitching , do you ? I really think it's a form of mediating
First I want to show you a little beaded ornament I stitched for a friend of mine .
I used the new DMC thread with the sparkle in it I loved it .
I sewed beads around the outside
It was a free chart that was given to me .
I have been doing a little knitting too.
I love the way the colours form .
they are so pretty
Another picture of them .
On Christmas Eve we went to the coast for lunch
This was the view from the window .
It was raining but it was lovely to eat and watch the waves coming in.
Below these house's face the sea with their palm trees .
But it can be very cold in Winter .
The same week before Christmas we went to a little parish in Idford
For a poem reading and to see the display of Christmas trees .
The cream stone you see above is from the Saxon times .
