A small start !!

It wasn't easy and I was very slow but I have stitched a few stitches on my favourite piece.
This is where I left it 12 weeks ago, yes it has been that long.
Does anyone remember me saying I hoped to have the brace off on my second visit at the hospital, just a few weeks after I broke my arm?
How silly of me!!
It takes at least 3months or more to heal a broken bone.
But I am hopeful that on my next visit I will have the brace off.   Only 2 1/2 weeks to go, yipeee!!!
This broken arm has turned my world upside down, but with lots of blessings and a lot of help I am surviving!

Thank you, thank you, thank you .....

Look what the post man brought today.
It's so lovely, a Rak
Beautifully wrapped
And look what's inside it... 
 This beautiful stitched pin keep, and a saying that is 'close to my heart.'
  And the chart, La foret Enchantee Printemps by Tralala.
 I can't wait to get back to stitching and this will be my first effort when I get this brace off. It has been 12 weeks, only 3 more to go.  This RAK from Ingrid was a beautiful surprise, so thank you again Ingrid, I love, love, love it!

Growth but only in the garden!

I can't believe we are at the beginning of June.. I have been sitting around not doing a lot for nearly 7 weeks!! FED UP, FED UP, FED UP, totally fed up!! I have tried to do some stitching but it is too painful, can't knit or crochet either..
I have read loads of books and chatted on the phone, because I can't do much else.
Our garden has blossomed but so have the weeds.

I love  Lupins and grow more each year.

I have reconciled myself to the fact I can't do much this year but there is always next.
And although the fox gloves self seed I help them along by shaking the dried seed pods over the garden.
DH has done a lot but he is also doing all the cooking, cleaning and generally looking after me, so not a lot of time to do much else.
I don't know if any of you have ever broken your arm, but you do need someone to help you dress, it's impossible to put on a bra one handed!!
I did plant up my patio pots, but afterwards I was exhausted.
Last week I had to have a tooth extracted, as I was having tooth ache. It was a back one and had been heavily filled. I could have had treatment and a crown but with all the pain, I just wanted it gone.
This week I have developed a dreadful cough and cold, so I think I am generally run down.
I feel very sorry for myself but I am so glad I have my lovely man, who has been wonderful.
So kinda looks like I will  carry on being a lady of doing nothing for a few more weeks yet, so I will just have to learn to be patient, which is very hard for me.
Thank you for all the kind messages, hopefully I will back to my happy always smiling self before long.
