All quiet on the Southern Front

(that's cos I'm in South London, am very aware that I am north of you guys Down Under).

It's been a nothing day today. The midwife came round to do the booking in session where they take your medical history, your height, weight (lied through teeth) etc etc. She's going to book me an appointment to see a consultant if all goes well on Monday. The best thing though, she was my midwife when FB was born and was happy to see him again. The last time she saw him of course he was 11 days old and refusing point blank to breast feed.

Apart from that all I've been doing is stitching. When I've finished it I'll put a photo of it up here. Should warn you though, that like all shop bought cross stitch designs, it leans heavily on the tacky side.

Last night's tea was Days Go By's chicken soup which was delicious, and tonight it's hot dogs.

Hi Velcro. I'm sorry to hear of your news. I feel for you and the wait you have to endure. I will be thinking of you and hope you receive good news. Bec's story is so apt. They are only probabilities - but it is so very hard to hear that a certain probability is higher than average. I don't know why I had those scans in a way as I don't think I could have terminated even if.....

Keep stitching - let your mind go where that takes you. I know what you mean about the store bought ones being a bit tacky. But I have found some very good ones that use mutliple strands of different thread colour, or very naturalistic patterns that are beautiful. If your looking for a new project let me know.

Everybody needs a little tacky in their lives :) look forward to seeing the cross stitch.

Ooh, just read Nutmegs comment and she's right - there are some beautiful hand dyed stranded threads. Oliver Twists are my fav.

thanks guys!

Nutmeg, I'm going to be finished with this pattern very soon. I've only got 1/3 of the background, the margin and some odd patterns to do and then i'm finished; so any ideas are very welcome. Especially for a bookmark. I think I'm going to try stitching my own one.

I keep meaning to try that soup, bought a chicken yesterday and forgot why! Thanks for reminding me. Looking forward to pics of your finished work.
