A Little More Progress.

Wednesday should have been UFO night, and I should have been going on a visit to my friend Colly but unfortunately the dreaded tummy upset was back. I have come to the conclusion that something I eat disagrees with my but I cannot work out what as I never seem to have had the same thing twice. However a friend suggested that I keep a food diary of everything I eat and that way I may begin to see a pattern so I think that is what I am going to have to do, boring as the prospect is. I will try anything if it gets to solve the mystery of what upsets me.

Anyway I did my UFO on Thursday instead and made a little more progress.








I have also managed to finish page three on water tiger so that warrented a little cheer one six more pages to go lol. Unfortunately there is a lot more work on them than on the first three and I only have 6 months to go ......... ahhhhhhhh and I thought stitching was to keep me sane.








On the card front here is the card I made for Rachael's birthday.

And here is what I stitched for her. I designed it myself though it is loosely based on the SB "Be Attitudes".
















I finished it as a pinkeep style picture and was really pleased with it but silly me forgot to take a picture.
I am now off to try and get some more of Water Tiger done before my bed calls me. Hope you all have a lovely weekend - especially those in the UK who have an extra day on Monday for the Spring Bank Holiday.
may your frogs stay in their ponds.

Hope you can figure out what's causing the problem Helen - a food diary is a good idea (keeping one has helped me no end).
EMS is looking good & it's nice to see 2 ears on WT. Very pretty card & gift for Rachael. Have a good BH weekend. :0)

Great progress on all fronts. You did a great job with that little design you did for your friend!

Brigitte said...

Great progress on both your WIPs. It seems that your Rose Sampler isn't very far from completion.
Oh, and what a nice little SB finish. I love this one.
A food diary sounds good. It took me a long time before I discovered that my stomach couldn't stand milk or milk products. Well, not all of them, fortunately, because I love cheese. But I can't eat all sorts of cheese any more.

Loved seeing all your progresses to date. Your Sampler looks close to down. Your water tiger is gorgeous and looking so real.
Love your little Be Happy - made me smile
Take care my dear

Your Rose sampler is looking so pretty, I love the colors, and Tiger is looking great as well. You did a fantastic job on the card, I think all the cards you do are so creative. Hope you're feeling better now and can figure out what it is that disagrees with you.

I love all the garden pics you've shown, I wish I had a nice garden because I love flowers but my OH has no interest and I can't physically manage. I just end up with a few pots. I love the stitching wip's too you're getting an awful lot done especially when you throw in the awesome cards you make. With the frogs making a permanent home at mine and yours we need a blender lol.
