What a Week!!

Indeed it has been quite some week. I have only been home from hospital for a couple of days. Yes - the tummy saga again. I'm not even going to go there, except to say it's not over yet.

DH and the kids coped pretty well while I wasn't here. Except for maybe the cupcake baking that was required lol. DD had to take in some decorated cupcakes for a competition at school. The cakes would then be sold and funds would go to the World's Biggest Morning Tea - at least that is what I think it was all about. Anyway, I was giving instructions over the phone from my hospital bed at 7am lol - but the end result certainly looked good!

I certainly managed to get some stitching done. The Strawberries N'Bees Biscornu by Veeandco came up beautifully, the photos just do not do it justice. Thank goodness I thought to pop it into my bag when I headed off to emergency, otherwise I would have had no stitching with me!

Next is my very belated Totally Useless Stitchalong update. I certainly have added to it in the last month! This is such a fun SAL - you can learn more about it by clicking on the button on the right.
Here are the two pinkeeps I received in Stitching Exchanging's first exchange. Thank you so much Yoyo and Bonnie, I love them!

Another finish I managed just before hospital was Just Nan's Grow Tin

I nearly forgot the most exciting news of all!!! I won a competition at Bronny's blog . So exciting!!! I will post a pic when it arrives. Thank you so much Bronny - it really brightened my day, and it's the first time I've ever won anything online!!!

Oh I love your strawberry biscornu. It's such a stunning design, and you stitched it so beautifully! I'm so sorry you're still getting so much grief with your tummy... It's been going on for so long... It's unbelievable. I hope you get better very soon.
All the best XXX

Your biscornu is beautiful!

Hope you are feeling better by now. May I have a cupcake please, it's getting to be time for that midnight snack. Love your Strawberries biscornu. I like V&Co biscornus, simple yet elegant. I have Butterflies and Roses, but haven't gotten close to kitting it up yet. Nice pinkeeps (LOL). And you are, believe it or not, not as late as I am in posting your Totally Useless Jar!
