At last I have finished the green and gold part of the dress which completes the dress. Whew!I was beginning to think it would never be finished and for a while I didn't like stitching it as I had gone wrong and wanted to quit! But I bravely frogged a whole section and set off again and wow its done!
I have two more celtic ladies and I never thought I would say this but I think I would like to tackle them one day as well.
And my Rosewood Manor, Quakers and Quilts has also come out of my wip basket in February.
I was just going to stitch one section of the quilts but got carried away and did two!
The close up of this one shows the straight stitches in between the cross stitches. I haven't ever done this before and I was a bit wary but I like it and think it gives a very nice effect.
This month, March already, I will try to do just a little to these two and more on my Chatelaine which is waiting for its turn! I haven't stitched as much in the evenings as I normally would do this last month, as I have had a to-do with my thyroxin dose tabs. It seems I was taking too low a dose but my Drs didn't let me know so consequently I have been sleeping early evening and all other horrible things have affected me, my usually long nails have flaked and peeled, I have lost some hair and worse of all have put on a considerable amount of weight. Although I have now have the correct dose I am struggling to lose the extra weight, my nails are growing SLOWLY! and although my hair has stopped dropping out it is still lank. So I have not been my usual 'pollyanna' self. Still it could be worse so I am battling on. I have my wonderful DH who has been cooking the proper meals for me to lose this weight and he is very supportive in every way, so I can't ask for anything more.
The daffodils are flowering in the garden and we have our little veg. plot dug ready for planting! So in spite of everything our life is good!
Happy Stitching all, spring is here and the sun is shining
