Stitching Time

As some of you know at the end of July I developed frozen shoulder in my right shoulder..not the best time just before the kids school summer holidays but there it was. I did seem to recover in September and October but in the last few weeks it's bad again. I've had to drop my Tai Chi class as the pain was just too much for me but it has meant that I get more stitching time :-)

I've had to put every project on my Lowery so I don't strain my shoulder but here's my progress on my WIPs

A few months ago I took part in the Summer Biscornu Exchange with Friendly Stitchers. My partner fell through sending me a biscornu so Gillie from FS kindly stitched me this lovely summer biscornu. My DD has fallen in love with it as it's got her absolute favourite colours pink & purple in it and flower buttons (what more could a little girl ask for ?!). It's so beautiful and thank you sooo much Gillie.


Then on Friday a surprise parcel arrived for DD...here's what it contained..

Stitched by Gillie so our DD had her very own biscornu. It's a big hit and she showed it to everyone in the pub that lunchtime whilst we were having lunch!  Thank you so much Gillie you made a little girl very happy x

There are no prizes but it's fun!

  2. What lovely biscornus Gillie made and what lovely progress you have made. Hope your shoulder is better soon my DH has had a bad shoulder for the last 2 weeks which I hope is getting better as I prefer him to work from his office not from home.

  3. Wow, you have some lovely and vibrant WIPs going at the moment! How fun that your DD received such a nice and thoughtful gift. I am sure she will treasure it for the rest of her life.

    Hope your shoulder starts to feeling better again, and stays well.
