Pains, Small Stitches and Pills

First of all… My laptop is mended!!!! and no it didnt cost me more than a new laptop neither, why is it everyone is out to make money out of people, i mended it myself so i am FINALLY back online oh how I missed you little Internet land.

Next is an update of Sadness Of An Angel, still not finished the background or face completed as i STILL have toothache.


I am just not in the mood to stitch at all, the pain is terrible and the painkillers are a waste of time, i got an emergency appointment today but my Dentist as on holiday so i sat nervously in the chair of a dentist i didn’t know ( at this stage i was in so much pain i didnt care what they did as long as they took it away) and sat while he knocked his metal stick thingy on my teeth while i tried not to jump out of the chair only for him to tell me to take some antibiotics and come back in five days if i am still in pain, when my normal dentist is back.


So now i am miserable, I had a tin of lukewarm soup so i could take my tablets then a drink of water and the pain was so bad after he had banged my teeth that i was crying with pain, not crying like a kid but with tears that i couldnt stop as it was that painful.

Yes this week has been a REALLY bad week, with Dentists, my eldest doing something so awful its the worst thing that a child could do to a parent,  and my doctor telling me i need counselling because of it and some little pills to make me feel better ( which i haven’t got yet as i would prefer stitching to be my drug) it has been a really shitty week, at least i am back properly in blogland.

Now I only have 5 months worth of back reading  and commenting to catch up on… I may not pick a needle up all week 🙂


Muttering Like Muttley

I am peeved today, can you see why?

yes i run out of DMC 762 so i bought some more, and carried on stitching, it wasnt until i got stitching next to the old thread that i could tell something was off, I really need to invest in a good light. The difference on colour is really off and it is the same number this is the second time this has happened to me this month!

First lesson dont stitch in blocks as you can really see the line especially when something like this happens

I must have had the thread in for years but who would have thought they would have been a difference, so really peeved about it, I am not going to frog it, i will hope as i get further in that i wont look straight at it.

Anyway CD has now been put away and this week i am working on DOTF

I have decided to stitch the sky this week,  so it will give me a idea of how big it will be, so hoping that i get  all the sky done and maybe start the rainbow.




also here if a close up of DREAMING ON THE FARM, can any of you tell what I am showing you?

I was supposed to be working on the HAED BB SAL Lovers, but i dont like how it is turning out, it was between two charts and i wished i had gone with the tiger, so not sure to just plod on or leave it

and finally thanks for all the comments i do read your blogs but i cant leave comments as i am using the net on my phone, which to be honest is pretty naff!!

What the hell did i do with my threads?

Have you ever put something in a safe place and then find you have no clue where you put it?
Well that is what i have done with my new threads so Daffy has been put away as i can’t even stitch the background.
So i have picked up Corsair Dameria again.


not worked on her much as i joined the local gym and like a idiot who hates exercise decided to help my weight loss and i was surprised to find i enjoyed it, however my legs are in agony today so i have skipped aqua fit tonight as there is no way i could have jumped in a pool today.

hopefully i will loose 3 1/2 lbs in two weeks as i will have been going to weight watchers for six months and i am hoping to have lost 3 stone half of what i need to loose. so my legs are just going to have to get used to it lol.

finally here is my TUSAL update


yes the picture is bad but it goes all blurry when i try and take a close up i will try and edit it when i can get on a computer.

fighting the urge

yes i have two charts that i want to start butk i have loads on the go that i need to get a bit done on them before i start anything new so this afternoon i picked up QS daffodil springs.


yes i know i wanted to get Mermaid worked on but i didn’t want to stitch no more yellow today i did enough yesterday so i fancied doing something else.

Top Row Complete!

i have finally completed a row.


this includes any HAED that i have done i was going to swap and go onto something else but i might do the next page its really full of  blocks  of colour so might only take me a couple of  weeks. think i made a mistake with marking the chart off when stitching the ship  though so i may have to fix it depends how much you can tell when i have done all of the ship.
its forecast snow this weekend so hoping for loads so i can get more stitching in.

New Year, New Starts

First of all hope everyone had a happy Christmas and new year, it was very hectic here as we were entertaining everyone for Christmas day, Boxing Day, New Years Eve and New Years Day (which is like Christmas Day but with no presents), so very little stitching was done. I did manage to start on Sadness For An Angel but with no money i have had to just stitch her on normal DMC, ( i am trying to sell my car now as things have got that bad so i dont think hubby would have let me get the silks, so i didnt even ask, Why do we ask when we work just as hard as the men, if not more?)

But Here is my first update of her stitched on 28ct Jazlyn tenting 2 X 1 ( i really need to finish something this year so tenting it is!)


And with the new year comes the new SAL from the HAED BB i had to have Nene’s Lovers, as soon as i saw it.

and this is what i have done so far after today , again stitched on 28ct Jazlyn tenting 2 X 1

I have only done two colours so stitched up fast however since i am back at work tommorrow it may be the only stitching i get done this week.

I am going to updat all my blog and get caught up on reading when i can use the kids computers, as mine has got a white screen and my laptop is plugged into the tv so not very good for reading as i cant afford to get it fixed.
