I have done some stitching since last time , but not as much as I would have liked. The last couple of months have seemed to lurch from one problem to the next .
After my hip got better , I came down with a really bad cold, which is only now starting to go, five/six weeks later. I went from a sore throat to the blocked up nose , then got the cough which seemed to come and go. then I got blocked ears so last week , every time I blew my nose the world started to spin , I got so dizzy that I threw up. Not pleasant.
We had a plumbing problem which was not cheap , hubby broke the crown off one of his teeth and has had several dental appointments to sort that and other problems out.
We lost my boys' much loved pet gerbil on the 14th November. Gracie was a real character and will be very much missed, but we now have four of the little buggers. My son got another two and after deliberating as she originally wanted Degus , my daughter has two gerbils now as well. They are all very tame and love to run round on us all . Love them to bits.
And now we have a problem with the washer not draining properly. I think it's actually the sink pipes that are blocked so hopefully we will get that sorted tomorrow. The car goes for its' MOT on Friday and I'm dreading it .
Also got a bit of a shock this morning with a horrible message from someone I care about , still reeling a bit from that.
Had to go into town this morning on the bus , and an old chap told me that things can only get worse , and I wanted to clock him one ,lol.
Anyway . on to the important stuff, let's look at some stitching .
For some reason , blogger will not show this the right way up , but I love this little guy , just looking at him makes me smile . I need to get him framed.
I have started another project , but not got very far on it. I've also been working on my oldest UFO and hope to get it finished before the end of the year.
I am hoping to join the HAED challenge that begins on Jan 1st , to stitch a page before 3rd March. It will mean a new start so I want that UFO out of the way.
I will be back with the years efforts and plans for next year , until then though , wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas , hope the season brings you all that you wish for. I just want a lovely day with my family.
Thanks for dropping by ,
