IHSW - May 2013 Report

Where to start?  Well, the doctor has referred Mum back to the hospital so we are waiting for an appointment letter.  Other than that, he told her to carry on living her life, unless she experiences strong pain for more than 20 minutes, in which case ring 999!  So we carry on ....

I have made good progress this week with Enchanted Garden:

Having mentally divided the unstitched lower part into three sections, I am pleased to report that two of the three are now complete, including back stitching, and that I have started the third and final section on the far right hand side.  This section consists mainly of Fairy 4 and of the stalk to the toadstool that Fairy 3 is sitting on.  It is less than a quarter of the whole piece but more than an eighth.  However I am going to be a little short on time this week as my diary is booked up every night until Friday, when I propose to collapse in a small heap.  I plan to stitch what I can when I can, and then whatever is left will get my full attention at the weekend.

I haven't a lot to say tonight - I have an appointment tomorrow afternoon - it may be nothing or it may be something.  Work knows because I have to take some time out, but nobody else - I don't want to worry the family when they have enough on their plate.  If it is nothing, they don't need to know - if it is something, I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

May the sun shine on you, your loved ones and your stitching!
