Welcome February

Well, January has disappeared in a flash of bugs and infections, I've never been so glad to see the back of it. It started off ok as January 1st is my birthday so it was spent happily with the family, on the 2nd I had to have some teeth out and a follow up appointment the following week saw me losing some more so for two weeks I hardly ate anything apart from soft food. The third week I had a stomach bug followed by a chest infection and topped it off with a water infection all in the same month. The only good thing to come out of it is that I have lost at least 8lbs in weight which was a good kick start to my new year diet!

I've not been doing a lot, I just couldn't summon up any enthusiasm to do anything but I have managed to do a few bits.

This is Little House on a Hill by LHN,I finished this at the end of last year.

This was lovely to stitch so thank you Julie for passing it on to me.

I did another motif on Beatrix Potter,

It  is coming along now and I hope to finish it soon.

I also did the monthly challenge on Needlecraft Haven but forgot to send my picture in with not feeling too good. This was a lovely simple stitch.

I did have a new start which is CCN Count your blessings but I'm not happy with the fabric as it's so stiff and feels a bit plasticy but I'll have another go at it and see if I can get on with it any better.

Apart from that I've been doing a bit of knitting and lots of reading and lots of resting, I just need some sunshine now and I'd be a happy bunny, please hurry up Spring I think we've all had enough of winter.

Hope everyone is feeling well and keeping warm in this horrid weather,

love and hugs,

What lovely cross stitches you have been doing. It's a while since I finished my last one, one of the Told in a Garden ones, always so attractive.
