A Trio of pretties

Photobucket

Whilst I've been ill, my dear friend Barbie sent me a wonderful surprise through the post, Barbie had started stitching this for me last year as a surprise but had an injury to her back and had to have an operation so never got them finished, well now that she is up and about again, she finished them and sent them to me, it was a total surprise and real pick me up that I needed.

Barbie told me that the design is called "Georgia's Hearts" by Anne Winslow with Butterfly Ranch Designs and that she changed the colours to what she thought was perfect for me - I love this wonderful surprise and not only did I get this, I found the wee scissors inside the tin and I also got some altoid tins too which is really brilliant.



We are both feeling much much better now and I went back to work last week, but was straight back to bed by 8pm as I was so tired, but this week I am feeling much like my normal self.

I'm off today as we had to take delivery of a new washing machine, my old one just didn't want to work for me anymore! So, I thought I would get a bit of cleaning done in the house and post on my blog, I'm now sick of cleaning the house and have started to look for distractions LOL!!

I owe Bithday wishes and belated cards and gifts to friends I will get them out some time I promise, I have finished my mums pressie but not the finishing, what I was going to do with it is no good it won't fit !!!! I am 3/4 way through my sheep exchange and have decided finally what I want to do for the tea exchange. I haven't really picked a needle up much I have not had any energy for it, but now I'm feeling better hopefully this week I will get lots done.
