This flower fairy is from a magazine not sure if i got all the colours spot on but i think it looks ok. i plan to get it framed as i do like flower fairies.
Started stitching nelson and tibbs free kit.

Been doing abit more stitching than normal due to millie dog having a tumour removed so ive been keeping my beady eye on her to make sure the stitches are scratched out. i take her back vets tomorrow (monday) for a checkup as her friday checkup the incision was inflammed so had anti inflammatries and seems alot better. the vets plan is if its healed ok to remove stitches on friday but because of inflammation im not sure if they will. poor dog's not been aloud to run, jump etc all things she loves doing, also had to wear a buster collar(plastic cone as we call it).
I ordered my new glasses on thursday as ive been getting migraines and had a eye test and the current prescription is too strong so no wonder im getting migraines. the new glasses are having anti fatigue lenses as the optician thought they would suit what im doing eg stitching. the anti fatigue as he termed it are pre varifocals. mum kindly paid for them after paying £240 on vets bills. we couldnt find £300+ for new glasses but my dad insisted i had them this month and we pay them back.

This is the pincushion i stitched over the weekend it was a free kit from britians no1 cross stitcher. Its not bad im not great at normal sewing so im quite happy with the finished thing. The picture isnt very good as i scanned it because for some silly reason if i plug the camera into my laptop it knocks my internet off.
Im back to stitching on wnter rose(lavender and lace) im quite pleased with how its going not too much to do over half done.
