Just stitching

I have done some more to this
Touchon O Christmas tree
 Here will be another two flying birds
 The frog was present
I did a load of stitching, only to realise 
I had used the dark and not the mid brown thread.
When I restitched it covered the brown smudge. 
 My French marigolds are in flower in my green house
They do look lovely. 
I am still full of cold, I have a bad throat and cough, my main problem is not being able to sleep at night, the last time I had a full night's sleep was last Saturday. So I am very tired, hoping for an early bedtime tonight. Almost everyone in the office has a form of the cold bug, the temperature is all over the place at the moment, last night was far to hot, it's hard to know what to wear to work each day.
I have enjoyed doing my Christmas stitching again, I just love the little birds in this piece. I have not done anything with my sewing machine.
Later we are going to watch the bake off final, I am wanting Andrew to win, but I do have history of picking the wrong person, so I hope I have not jinxed his chances.
Saturday morning we are off to see a converted camper van, the photo's look good and the van has ticked all our boxes for items we wanted, so providing there are no hidden problems we should be proud owners of our own camper van. If we get it there will be photo's next time. I am already making a mental list of things we need to get for inside, and who knows we may get away one night in November, it does have a heater inside.


  1. Beautiful stitching. I hope you get a good night's sleep tonight, nothing worse than coughing waking you up all the time. I'm still coughing after 3 weeks.

    Camper van sounds exciting, can't wait to see pics.

  2. I hope you feel better soon, I've had this flipping cold thingy that's going around, every time I start feeling better it seems to come back! Lovely stitching :)

  3. Sure hope you are better soon. It's just miserable when you can't get a good night's sleep. I love that Christmas stitch.

  4. Ugh to the hideous sleepless nights.
    But how lovely is your stitching. Just beautiful. I'm crossing my fingers the campervan is everything you wish for xx

  5. Get well soon wishes coming your way.
    Lovely tiny stitches in this one, such a shame you had to frog out the wrong colour.

  6. Your stitching is looking lovely. I'm sorry to hear you're under the weather. Eleanor went to the doctors on Monday, she's had 'freshers flu' since she started at uni five weeks ago, the doctor examined her and told her it was 'just' pleurisy and if she got chest pains to go to A&E! Did you enjoy the bake off final? I wanted Jane or Andrew to win, never mind.

  7. Your stitching is lovely and so are those marigolds. So sorry about that cold. Praying you feel better soon.
