So sorry.

Sorry I've been such a bad blogger this past month. :(
It's been a combination of my own illness and having alot going on plus just recently Joe has been unwell and as some of you know, it takes him longer to get over things.

Anyhow, I do have a very small update to show you of my 'With faith' project.  I'm hoping to be able to crack on with this and get onto the next one pretty quickly now, as I can't wait to see them framed and up on the wall.
I generally pick up my frames from the charity shops, so it costs me next to nothing really and I've had some really nice ones.

I hope things are going well with all of you. I'm planning to catch up on my blog reading this week as well.

Things here are plodding on. Still just going month to month with Steve's job. It's horrible while it drags on like this, but I know it can't go on forever. Something will happen eventually, just got to sit it out and see.
Still haven't found any nice material or old things I can make over in the charity shops here, I'll keep looking though.  I have been looking on ebay for fabric bargains as well, but nothing has grabbed me yet.  I can't wait to have a go at making some curtains!

Anyhow, here is my update picture:
Sorry, usual bad picture quality.
I found my camera, but it's minus the batteries. They seem to have taken up residence in the boys game controllers!!  Hmmm....
The door handle on this is usually just a contrasting stitch, but I am going to add a pretty bead I think.
I have some nice hearts as well to sew on as a decoration to this piece.  I shall have to make sure I don't go over board though of course, but they're quite small and I think they'll look nice.

Anyway, Hopefully it won't be too long before I can show you more progress on this.
Take care everyone.



  1. Great progress. Hope you all start to feel better soon and that your Hubby's job situation resolves.

  2. Lovely project and well done on the progress, its going to look good when finished. I hope you all feel better soon.

  3. Lovely update and the bead and hearts sound a great addition.
    Hope you are starting to feel better and Joe also.
    Thank you for your comments on my blog, I appreciate them very much :)

  4. I really love the muted colors of this one.

    Don't worry dearest sis, things will go back to normal to all of us. And always take care :-)

  5. I need to make curtains for my front door window. My sister had quite a chuckle over the fleece throw blanket that is on it with magnets. Yeah, it was supposed to be temporary...six or eight years ago!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a message. I really appreciate it.
