Finishing mood continues...

Have lots of small pieces that were stitched a while back but just don't have the inspirations for finishing..looking through the folders and drawers that i've kept the pieces, i've picked out Spring time as it is the season now, and the christmas piece with it's soft colours. Only, i couldn't find which magazine--Just Cross Stitch Christmas ornaments-- this design were featured so i couldn't add who the designer is. It is nearly two weeks now since the accident with my ankle, happy to say it is healing nicely though slowly. I started walking again since yesterday albeit on my own speed, relatively slow. Instead of walking the distance which i normally take for 45 minutes, it took me an hour and half yesterday and today did improved a bit. Picture below was taken today along the way...been windy, drops of rain a couple of times but glad the sun continues to shine during my walk. Thanks so much for all the well wishes. Hope you all are having a good start of the week.

LHN & The Sampler Girl finishes

Due to a sprained ankle, it is exactly a week from today... i am force to stay home and not to do much, more on resting my foot. The first few days i did more on reading magazines, stitching came to mind but i wasn't in the mood for it till yesterday. I went in search of folders tuck early last year for the renovation and came across quite some unfinished designs which i thought especially these two samplers that i had already completed them off but not at all. On the LHN it shows when i had started it ...year 2011. So i worked on them today, now they'll be added to the piled up items to be frame one day. A pic of my ankle taken a few days ago. Getting better but slowly...i will start work tomorrow so i hope i can manage it. A few pics taken lately...Since Grace is at University, and has work during weekends at the city...she seldoms come to the island. Hope everyone's having a good week. Many thanks to all who stopped by and all the lovely comments.

A few more pics from home!

Missing the quietness at home and the warm weather ...as well as some fruits like one of these, Jackfruits. Quite a few around one of my brother's place but none was ripe during my visit. And these corn were already dried up so wasn't able to taste fresh boiled ones. Always nice catching up with highschool friends, i do feel lucky they had made time for a meet-up as it was unexpected. Was able to watch part of an event during our visit in the city, a yearly Festival which held during the month of February called "Panagbenga"..'Blooming Flower Festivals'! The festival includes floats that are covered mostly with flowers and also street dancing, presented by dancers clad in flower-inspired costumes. Nothing to show stitching wise...i did stitched but not much to show, hopefully on my next update. Hope everyone's have a good start of the week.
