A little finish.

Well here is prove that I have at least done a little stitching recently!As I've said before I love these little CHS letters and I have decided to stitch a few to give as Christmas gifts , this one is for my friend Christine ,I have stitched it on 28# Danish Linen and I will have it framed for her.The charts are ones I,ve bought recently sorry the photo is so bad I think I might get a new camera for Christmas as this one doesn't take great shots.
In other news at last my gates are as I type been hung YAY this is going to take a few days to complete as they have too dig out the old post before setting in the new ones but hopefully by the end of the week I will be able to show what they look like.
Apart from stitching the little gift above I haven't managed much else I have managed to develope a nasty chest infection and I can hardly talk my voice is so croaky and all of this has left me completely drained of energy ,which is really frustrating since I have stacks of new charts plus still some charity stitching to finish .Never mind spring is certainly in the air here and we only have a week or so till the school holidays which are two weeks long so maybe we can all have a much needed rest.
Thats about it for now ,I've really enjoyed reading through a few blogs this morning and again I find myself inspired by the amazing work you all do ! Take care.

Hi Tracy - Ginger here. Thanks for the comment you left in my blog. I so appreciate when people say things to the effect of, "Its ok to feel like that, I've been there."

You'll be happy to know I've taken steps to put a more positive spin on my life in the past week, so things aren't as dark as they were in the past few weeks. Thank God (yes, I do still believe...) for a compassionate and supportive husband :) He's usually the one who sees these things coming on, and helps me to find the steps necessary to drag myself out of it.

Thanks again, hope you continue to read both my blogs (I cross stitch, too!), and have a wonderful, positive day :)

'Cats' is so cute. I saw the CHS letters on-line this week & think it's time to buy them. You're right, they make great gifts.
Sorry to hear that you've got the flue bug. Hope the spring weather will make you feel better soon.
Great to hear that your new gates have arrived and are almost installed.
Have a good (hopefully healthier) weekend.
