Girlie day!

My best girlie friend in all the world came a-visiting me yesterday & we had a really lovely day. It was the first time she'd visited me since I moved last September so it was great to show her around the local area & the house etc. We had lots of chat to catch up on & she showed me what she'd been stitching recently, including one she had been stitching as a surprise for me SeaHorses! I've got a bit of a thing about seahorses & love this design, have done for a long time! Sharon's stitching it on SW Blue Dynasty linen & has added a bit of sparkle to the reeds. It looks fabulous so far - she hasn't got much more to do, so I shall be on at her to 'Stitch!' even more now ;o) She's driven back up to Yorkshire today & I got a text from her not so long ago to say that she'd arrived safely home. I'm going up to visit Sharon for a long weekend in September so am really looking forward to it.

I've still not had much of a chance to stitch, just a few threads here & there, though I have made a bit more progress on Forest Goddess, so will be posting a new piccie soon.

Dad is still not that well. He is now having to go up to the hospital to have an iron drip every 2 weeks as there is a severe lack of iron in his blood. He had a brain scan yesterday which is in preparation for him going to the TIA clinic in a couple of weeks time. I'm going over to see him tomorrow. He's been feeling a bit down, which is hardly surprising, so I'll probably take him out for a bit of lunch somewhere when we go out shopping.

I love the seahorse design, kudo's to Sharon for stitching it for you, she's a wonderful friend.

Hope your dad feels better soon, especially after being taken out to lunch with his lovely daughter!
