All last week Aurelia was sick, not with one bug, but two. She had a high fever for three days and was as miserable as can be. Her fever disappeared for a day and a half and then came back, but with a cold this time. She is feeling better this week though. This week it seems it is Amelie and my DH's turn. So far I seem to be OK apart from feeling a little tired. I have hardly been able to get anything done. I did manage to finish and post my Friends Through Thread exchange. I tried something a little different this time and I am really excited at how it turned out.
On the weekend my DH took down our pergola out the back. Hopefully next week they will be putting the new one up. Unfortunately this means that my back garden and my house are a mess. I just wish all this work would come to a finish soon.
On Monday the postman delivered a lovely pinkeep from Jill. She stitched me some motifs from the Sarah Tobias book by Blackbird Designs. I love this design particularly and it goes beautifully with the long pillow I received from Joan a while back. I am disappointed with our postal service though. It took over ten days to reach me from the US. This time last year it was only taking five days at the most. Thank you Jill for the beautiful pinkeep!
The only stitching I have managed apart from the exchange this last week has been my Rites Of Spring by Blackbird Designs. I have now stitched just a little over half way and I am really pleased at how it looks.
