Low cloud and suspended yet-to-fall rain tends to trigger my migraines.
Such was the weekend.
When the rain did fall my migraine had gone too far and could not be diverted.
People are always intrigued that I can still function to some extent with a migraine, but when you have had them as your life companion and still had to mother seven babies you simply have no choice but to stay calm and carry on. I admit though, I manage them better these days with my diet, but the weather triggers are sadly out of my league.
So between resting and medication I prepared pretty things to stitch over the week ahead...in case my head intends continuing this game of pain.
A vintage style needlebook from Kerryanne English's 'Shabby Art Boutique' shop - (her e-patterns will be retired on Friday)...
A free gift pattern for new subscribers to the Stitchery Club. I love the colours in this fabric so shall endeavour to use them as inspiration for thread choice in my design...
...as well as in this new pattern by Cori from Chitter Chatter Designs. Isn't it lovely?
Cori's pretty "Tea for Two" design is part of a fun blog hop organised by the ever amazing Mdm Samm over at Sew We Stitch.
My version will feature applique (my split applique technique I think - see it HERE)
You can join in too - head over HERE to Sew We Stitch for all the details...
I'll take things slow today as my body tends to need a day or two recovery time after a migraine so Princess Sophie is settled nearby in her basket to keep me company, a piece of silverside is simmering in the crockpot (Mr E's second-favourite dinner), and my stitching is prepared...
have a delightful week,
