Stitching & celebrations!

Busy days, not a lot of stitching going on!
Gradually getting over the very effective virus that laid me low over the last week...the voice is still a bit husky but on the mend.
To add insult to injury, a nastily infected tooth had to be extracted as it was destroying my jaw.
I am not a fan of the dentist at the best of times, but he has assured me that I will love him over the next few days as I start to feel better. Then I am on the very expensive merry go round of getting a dental implant when the bone heals!
Phew!

But thankfully the sanity saving stitching is there for me.
I have been doing the Tail Feathers BOM, here is the first month...

cute stitcheries.

I made mum a mug bag for her birthday, it matches her knitting bag. It holds a cute red & white spotted mug. Nice to take to her craft group.

Here is a pic of me with my sewing assistant/pattern holder.

He makes sewing interesting.


Hope you are having a good week...
