Double Damn & Geranium

Oh Damn, Damn, and more damns ........... I started with a cold last night. Its not a particularly bad cold as colds go but it is just at such an inconvenient time. After waiting for what seems like years - (nearly 6 months lol) I am due to go in hospital for my operation on Saturday morning and I know if I turn up with a cold they will not operate so I am taking flu strenth Beechams tablets every 6 hours and lots and lots of clear fluid drinks and I am wrapped up like a newborn on the coldest of days. I am hoping and praying that it is just a 24 hour thing and that be this time tomorrow I will be my normal self again.

Now to brighten things up here is a picture of my UFO as it is at this moment in time.

I wish you could see it in real life, the colours are wonderful and some of the flowers almost look as if you could lean down and pick them. There are lots of colour changes - even the simplist petal or leaf has 4 or 5 colours in it - so its quite slow going, and I don't like stitching the ivy which happens to be the slowest growing ivy I have ever come across, but overall I am really enjoying working on this.

All being well I wont be here for a few days after tomorrow so I hope you all have a lovely stitching weekend and I will look forward to spending some time catching up on those blogs and seeing all your progress pics when I am fit again.
