 As a gift for Christmas this one sucks

yep a brand new cast for another 3 weeks. Plus i'm told if it hasn't healed right by then it's onto surgery & a pin inserted. Cross fingers, toes & touch wood it's healed well.

Every year at mothers day, birthday & Christmas time i'm asked "what do you want" and every year my reply is the same " Peace & Quiet" Well this year i finally got what i asked for as my birthday & Christmas presents. :) :).

The shirt was my birthday present & the tea for Christmas. To go with the tea i was also given this mug

Happy Stitching,

Desert Rose

 I have 4 desert roses which i thought had died off as all the leaves were gone & spring had arrived & nothing was happening then all of a sudden leaves started forming & after patiently waiting 2 produced blooms. Both have lots of them on them too which i'm so pleased to see.

This one of my older ones & the largest plant.

This is my newest one I bought it maybe 2 years ago & have been waiting to see what colour it is. It's in it's own pot sitting at the base of the picture at the top. To the side is 1 of 2 plain white desert rose plants. I hope they flower soon.

Happy Stitching,

FNSI December

 Another year gone & now we are onto the last FNSI for 2022 hosted by Wendy.

Not being able to do much my days drift together & i'd forgotten it was Friday. Around lunch time i turned on Netflix & picked up my embroidery to stitch & sometime during the afternoon i remembered that it was Friday & therefore FNSI day. I'm back to stitching the bom A Redwork Christmas by Fig n Berry Creations having finished the bom blocks from Rosalie Quinlan. Now if i could only get them into a hanging before Christmas Day. Oh well next year. :)

This is block 8 that i'm working on. Only 16 more to go.

Merry Christmas & Happy Stitching,

FNwF December

 Well there we have it. Another year flown by & the last Friday Night with Friends hosted by Cheryll for 2022.

Despite spending most of my morning up at the hospital having this done i managed some stitching during the evening.

I fractured a bone 2-1/2 weeks ago in my left foot & apparently is was bad enough to require plaster for 4 weeks. :(

Anyway after a few hours rest as i fell down twice & luckily didn't do any other damage to myself i spent a quiet evening working on this stitchery

I finished on border & most of the 2nd before the show i was watching finished & bed called me.

Happy Stitching,


 I had planned to sew for FNSI but i really lack any enthusiasm to sit & sew. I pottered around for a while then dragged out the Lucy bo...
