You may remember in the post about my lovely RAK from Shirlee that I said I'd stitched an RAK for her too but had been ages getting it made up. Well I am happy to say that it has arrived with Shirlee and she loves it:) You will see the reason why it made me giggle when I received my RAK from her. The term great minds think alike came to mind immediately as while she was stitching a tea design for me I was also stitching one for her!

RAK for Shirlee
I have another RAK in the post so hopefully it'll arrive at its destination in the next day or two. I'm enjoying doing these RAKs and have another two in the pipeline but doubt I will get them done for a while now.
Last night I added the last few stitches into LHN Summer Splendor. I shouldn't really have stitched on it again until next Wednesday but as I was so close to finishing I asked my SAL partner Mouse if she'd mind and she didn't so here it is:)

After I'd finished my LHN I decided to pick up L*K 6 Fat Men Snow Day and managed to stitch a bit more without making any mistakes ( I hope) and think I will carry on with it tonight.
Thank you for all your comments on my decision on HAED Guardian. It's so good to know that so many of you know just how I feel. I've said it before I know but I'm not cut out for such a massive project and I'll just stick to the quick stitches and tiny treasures in the future. OK they've not exactly quick but they're more doable!
Thank you also for your good wishes for my surgery. 2 weeks time and fingers crossed I should have it over with and be back home!
It was our 26th Wedding Anniversary yesterday :) Wow it doesn't seem like a year since it was our 25th and we went away for the night. We didn't do anything this time but my DH's auntie gave us some money to go for a meal or whatever we want to do so I think we'll do that. With all the stresses of late I think it'll be nice to do that.
We're still hospital visiting although I didn't go on Wednesday evening as I wasn't feeling well. It's my FIL that's in, he's been in a week now, and I thought I was going down with cold ( but haven't, fingers crossed!) and don't want to give him it as he has breathing problems. As it is I don't want to pick anything up either or I'd have to cancel my surgery. We've known what is wrong with him for a long time and this admission could probably have been avoided had he told the doctor everything when my DH took him the middle of last week.
Well I better get photos on this post and get it published as I have to be at my Dad's in a bit. I'm meeting with his ex carer who will be taking over my role on his Lifeline list while I'm recovering from my surgery. My sister and I aren't happy about it ( long story!) but it's what my Dad wants so what can we do?
Take care everyone.
With much love
