The week that was....

I was happy to say goodbye to the past week.   What happened?
Well, the HDHBEM is now officially allergic to yet another antibiotic.  That's four at last count!
Monday morning she woke up swollen lips, bright red rash .... oh dear oh dear.   Thinking quickly I administered an antihistamine tablet and made an appointment with her doctor who confirmed my diagnosis.   So it has been a miserable week for her and for me.   Thank goodness the swelling has gone and the rash is fading in colour and coverage. 
I had two half days off work to accompany the HDHBEM on medical visits and was consequently super busy for the remainder of the time.  

Two pieces of stitching were finished -  a hardanger bookmark and the front flap of a small fragrance pocket.   One I am happy with and the other not.   Can you guess which I like?

Today was Embroiderers Guild and as always I was really inspired seeing what the other ladies were stitching.   Our rooms are two story and upstairs there was a class on Japanese Rozashi being taken by Margaret Kinsey.   We therefore had our meeting downstairs in the comfortable chairs in the lounge!   This meant I couldn't get a good photo of the display cabinet where some of "my products" are on display.  
Tonight I hope to finish a further four Prairie Schooler Christmas Ornaments and start another piece of hardanger.  I am working my way through the projects in "Basics and Beyond" trying to teach myself more about the basics before starting the HAL on The Stitch Specialists group.
Once the Olympic Games coverage starts my favourite New Tricks and Midsomer Murders will be off air so I am going to enjoy  a TV marathon tonight.   Hope you all have a great weekend.

    Your Hardanger is beautiful.
