One More Gift

I have come home for the weekend after having 7 treatments of radiation. All is going well, and I head back to Christchurch on Monday morning. Its quite a novelty to spend time in a city...but its so noisy. Really nice to be back in our sleepy little town...quite a different comment to what I would have said a year ago :) I have been walking and biking around Christchurch in order to keep my fitness up, so that is how I am mostly spending my time, now I have been in so many shops. I think I am almost shopped out now :)

This is the first opportunity I have had to update my blog. I can now post photos of a birthday gift (needlebook and scissor fob) I made for a dear friend of mine, Sy, in America, as she let me know she had received it. I didnt want to spoil the surprise and post it on my blog just incase she happened to spot it on there.

The design is a freebie - Angelas Scottish Thistles by Twisted Oaks Designs....






The stumpwork picture I am doing is almost finished, not too much more left on that.

Another gift


Some friends of mine will be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary on the 10th, so I thought I would make a little gift to give them. Just a simple heart to hang up in their house :) The colours seem washed out in the photo, but I used DMC light effects for this...they are much easier to use than the old metallic threads. I am going to make a card which matches the heart.
I head off to Christchurch on the 11th to start radiation on the 12th. Its nice to have a confirmed date now.
I have changed my avatar to a more Autumny look. And my hair is about that length too. I never really lost it all, so it is coming back quite quickly. Not as brown as that though. As my daughter told me...beautiful grey and white streaks :) At this point I am not in any hurry to dye it.
