Days have come and gone since I was last here .....

I have been very unsettled, waiting for results of an MRI scan and impatient to have some relief from back problems and hopefully being able to stand longer and walk more.
When I feel this way I can only stitch from patterns so I have been sitting for days doing small cross stitch and blackwork pieces.
The cross stitch flowers are stitched on Rustic Aida from a pattern in an old magazine,"Quick & Easy Stitch & Craft", for a birthday card.

The blue jugs are from an old magazine,
"New Stitches" - a set of ten.
The frames are from picnik, for display here.
I hope I'm not so bored that I do all ten - the stitching needs concentration and it relaxes me but what would I do with them? lol
I'll try to shake myself up next week and do something a bit more original.

Those are just beautiful! I did cross stitch a number of years ago. I always thought I would get back to it, but there are just so many crafts.... and so little time!

I love those blue jugs! I hope you don't have to wait much longer for your results - I know what its like. Sometimes the NHS moves exceedingly slowly!!


Hi Connie, I've been thinking about you a lot the last week or two and been meaning to pop over and see you here. I hope you are enjoying the distractions of summer and managing a little creativity now and again

Mainly, I just wanted to let you know that I was thinking of you xx

These are so lovely and very artistic. Hope you will not be kept waiting for your scan results and that treatment will soon be found to give you greater mobility and freedom from pain.
