Despite mentioning at the beginning of the month that I needed a Grab And Go project I still don't have one prepared and at 3am this morning I once again followed the ambulance carrying the DBEM to the hospital. I had no project to take nor did I think about it at the time. Mind you I'd had only 3 hours sleep so probably wasn't in a good space to be stitching even though I had the time while sitting in the uncomfortable chair beside her bed. We are both home again after the doctors gave her multiple tests and pokings and proddings. A verdict of angina (?) and the DBEM is currently snoring in her arm chair. I have done a few chores, generally tidied up after this mornings hurried exit and will now update this before retiring to my chair and having a few snores myself :)
The Basket Band is making good progress and I have the left hand side almost completed. There is another batch of over one lettering to go in the floral cartouche (yet to be finished) so that will definitely wait until my eyes are less tired and my currently painfully inflamed right thumb has settled down. The satin stich flowers in the left hand diamond band are not yet completed either.
My garden continues to delight and to provide surprises, one of which is a very healthy peony which is covered in great cerise blooms. The sweet peas are producing so many flowers that I cannot keep up even though I know they flower better if kept picked. We have had heavy rain and wind for a few days so the roses are looking rather beaten about. I need to get out and tidy things up this week.
