Belated gift

Photobucket



Vonna emailed me to let me know her VERY VERY belated birthday gift has arrived safe and sound to her door - and boy was that quick getting over to her, which makes me think that the post fairy knew I wanted it to get there fast.

The design is a favourite Shepherds Bush - Birthday Wish sheep, I stitched it 1/1 using none of the recommended threads. I just kind of picked my own, and the fabric is a pretty soft pink and lavender that I had in my stash that I used to back it with and lavender ric-rac.

We have been computerless since Monday night and its been awful, I felt I had lost something - although I don't always get on every night especially if I'm busy I usually check my emails daily and its been awful!! But it is back now from the computer hospital and feels much better has loads of energy!!

Talking of energy - I got my discharge from the hospital yesterday - I was so pleased as that means no more tests - not that they were very conclusive anyway, but I do feel better. Mark is tons better now and more or less back to normal - he still hasn't played golf yet though, next weekend apparantly is the target!

I have an exchange to show you that I received earlier this week from the Jaynes Attic boards Mono/Redwork exchange, I had hoped to show it earlier in the week, but when I went to use the camera it was dead so I have had to re-charge the battery, and so I will take a picture later this evening and get it posted up tomorrow.
