Begins with one little stitch as My Big Toe Designs says and if it wasn't for my stitching ( and a bit of knitting) over the last few weeks I think I'd have been tearing my hair out. It's been a week since my last blog post as I just haven't felt like posting so here's a few finishes.

I loved stitching this one and am, hopefully, going to mount it into the top on the DMC box I bought with my birthday money the year before last.
I finished my June ornament for the Christmas All Year Round SAL. We had a free choice this month so this is the one I chose.

I have had two other finishes and two starts but I can't show those as they are exchange pieces or gifts.
So the only WIP I can show is my SAL with Mouse of LHN A Stitcher's Heart. Loving how this looks.
I have some charts for sale at the moment if you would like to have a look. These are all ones that I have stitched in the past few weeks other than a couple that were already on the page and those I have reduced a little.
This is my progress on the Crest of a Wave Baktus. I'm halfway there so started the decreasing now.
Personal stuff now so if you want to stop reading please do :) After 10 months without a period I started last Wednesday. To say I was not a happy bunny is a huge understatement! I cried :( I know that is silly as it's not the end of the world and there are people in this world going through horrible things but I just didn't need it and I had settled to the fact that I was going to have no more. Two more months and I'd have been classed as being done with it.
Yesterday I had my post surgery appointment at the hospital. I didn't see the consultant who had done my surgery but I did see one of the doctors I had seen whilst I was in hospital so at least it was a familiar face. I told him about still feeling uncomfortable and how worried I was. However he did say it was still early days yet and it takes time for things to settle. He examined me and said that everything looked as it should, no signs of infection or stitches having come apart but I have another appointment for 3 months time. It did put my mind at ease a little but at the back of my mind I am still wondering if I'll ever feel any different. I know I must think positive! I forgot to ask what I can and can't do now so just going to build myself steadily with some light housework and no lifting still.
I do apologise for still not being back to visiting and commenting on your blogs properly. I have been commenting on a few but I really need to get back to visiting all the ones I usually do. I miss seeing what you are all stitching.
Thank you for all your lovely comments and for continuing to visit me :)
With much love
