Here is my June post.It is a bit sparse because stitching has been slow around this neck of the woods.Still, I have a little progress to share.
Little Moreton Hall,a National Trust kit which I re started in January this year
Herbs and Spices designed by Ursula Michael a very welcome gift from Vickie of A Stitcher"s Story blog.
I am enjoying choosing the colours for this one.I could not wait to finish the word Herbs before I started the word Spices. I am also back stitching as I go which I always do with these word designs.
I have a kit to show you.
I rarely purchase kits.
It has always been my intention to stitch the Avro Lancaster since I stitched the CSF165 Supermarine Spitfire.I just never got around to it and when I saw it was still available I took the plunge.
I would never have thought of stitching an aeroplane until my husband suggested it for my dad as a special present,nineteen years ago.
Some of you will have seen the Spitfire, here, in the past. I stitched it for my dad's 70th birthday in 2000,my very first stitching on 27 count fabric or anything smaller than 14ct aida for that matter.When dad passed away nearly four years ago I was given it back by my step mother.
I purchased the Spitfire kit in Heritage Crafts shop, in Crewe if I remember correctly, in 1999.The shop has been online only for years so I ordered it a fortnight ago and it came within three days.
This project is ear marked for starting after LMH is complete.
I have had a virus of some description which hit me in the middle of May and because my lungs are not working properly yet it sent my bp sky high and then after a few days it dropped like stone and is hovering in the low regions as I type.
Consequently I have had the attention span of a gnat,no energy or physical strength and stitching was just too tiring mentally and physically.
I am having blood tests on Monday which I am hoping will be all clear but if they are not at least I will know what is going on.
I have been able to knit when I am not too tired because there has been little or no concentration needed.
*Knitting progress will be on my knitting blog at some point.*
I have taken the decision to have a break from this blog for the summer,if we haven't already had summer that is.
By the time Autumn comes around it will be a year since my health took a turn for the worse and I am hoping it will have improved significantly by October this year.
I want to say,as always,thank you so much for visiting my stitching blog.I appreciate it very much.
