There is a definite upside to my recovery time - all this resting means I stitch a lot more than usual!
Over the weekend I drew up the rest of this years Gentle Domesticity BOM blocks and prepared them ready for stitching and applique. Here's a little peak at the August block...
I also completed the final two patterns for July's Stitchery Club, and I have to say "I love them!".
Creative juices were stretched when the idea of adding my own spin to prim style designs first dropped into this crazy brain, but the final result has put such a smile on my face.
So here's the Rabbit and the Posey...
If you'd like to sign up for The Stitchery Club the details are over here.
Also on the weekend Mr E and I played babysitters to Blossom's two dogs, Bob and Elmo.
This was our trial run for when she goes into labour as her DB will drop the boys over to us on their way to the hospital.
Little Bob-the-dog is almost 9 years old now and has been with Blossom (and us) since he was a wee puppy, but 8yo Elmo is a new family member. Bloss and her DB adopted him back in March and after a bit of a rocky start with separation anxiety issues he's settled wonderfully. Saturday at our place was his first time away from their home since they adopted him.
Elmo is pure Pomeranian and Bob is a Shitzu/Chihuahua cross...
Elmo and Bob are best friends and both dogs adore me, though Elmo has taken a real shine to Mr E so that means we can both keep a dog at our feet while we await that call from the hospital to say the baby has arrived.
Not long now! Blossom is due in 20 days so please keep those prayers coming.
Have a lovely day, okay?
It doesn't have to be a perfect day, just a day that brings a smile and a heart of gratitude.
