Weekend Stitching

Well that theatre Get In was a long one and I didn't see DH again until around 6pm and DS didn't show his face until around 10pm - so it was a long, quiet day with the TV and my stitching to keep me company. The TV was pretty dire at times but it was nice to have the voices in the background......... guess it makes a change from the ones in my head and talking to myself LOL. By the end of the night Heartwarmers looked like this:


Pretty pleased with that progress. Still got the arms and a little birdhouse to stitch but the eyes and mouth and holly berries are all beads and I'm going to leave all those until the end and add them when I add the charms.

DH liked what he saw of the rehearsal after the Get In yesterday and reckons it will be a good production to go and watch, so it looks like we'll be having a night out some time this week. That'll make a nice change as they normally only let me out at the weekends. ;0)

Many thanks for all the kind comments on my stitching and for the well wishes. I'm feeling way better than I did, although Sod's Law struck at the weekend: while I was out in the garden helping DH some nasty little critter bit the back of my right leg (ankle height) twice and the bites have gone a bit iffy, so I've got a limp - again! There's a patch of inflammation that's slowly spreading around my leg, despite not scratching and copiously daubing the bites with TCP. At least I have the satisfaction of knowing that whatever it was that bit me has more than likely died of food poisoning since........ and serve the little bugger right! LOL

Today I've been hobbling round, getting my usual jobs done ready for Alex dropping by. I popped out and filled up all the bird feeders earlier but I didn't hang around long - the midges are rife and I didn't fancy adding any more bites to what I've already got. Can't believe just how nice the weather is at the moment though, can you? Now why didn't we have some of this during the summer holidays?! As for tonight, I shall probably carry on with the bellpull for now...... unless I decide to break off and do another Halloween ornie instead. Hmmm, decisions, decisions.

Hope you all had an enjoyable weekend. Thank you for taking the time to visit. :0)

Some people just seem to attract the extra attention! I'm itching just thinking about it. Lovely to have some peace to stitch to your hearts content. It will look great with the beads added

He's a cute little guy.
I hope you have that leg elevated and rested, sounds nasty.

Hope the bites are disappearing now. Midges love me so much I have to take anti-histamine when we are camping or I'm guaranteed to get ill after we get home as I have a allergic reaction to them.

The stitching looks great.
