Sorry to have caused you worry!

I've had an email from my Japanese friend Yuko asking if I was well as there had been no posts for some days. Well here I am again - there are two reasons why you haven't heard from me. My current stitching project has a dead line of just a month from now and as its a basket band there is more and more and more of the same stitching - over one thread with one strand of floss on 28 count linen! Here's a view of the full 22.5 inches! Am I a little tired of this - Yes!
Is it turning out well - Yes!
Here's a closer up view too.
Also have a look at this - a friend brought it back from Japan for me. This is hand made by a 70 year old friend of her mothers. The tops of the little bobbles are the tops of acorns! Amazing isn't it.
And I finally found a small shop who were willing to print this photo of apple blossom on to fabric for me. I need it for my Anne of Green Gables book. I intend to embellish this with surface stitchery and beads.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend - it is supposed to be wet here.
