Beatrix Potter and SANQ

This will probably be my last post for a while but please bear with me and keep checking back because I will post as soon as I am able. I rang the hospital this morning to explain that I still had this long-lingering virus but she said to come in at the arranged time so it looks as though my surgery will go ahead. I just hope I don't cough on the operating table and they remove a couple of fingers by mistake! LOL

Yesterday I managed to stitch some on Beatrix Potter SAL. Not a huge amount but at least enough to post about. For some reason I am not enjoying BP as much as I did Hannah Beeby but maybe I will enjoy it more as I go along. I'm not very enthusiastic about anything at the moment, I think this bug is really getting me down - 9 weeks is a long time to feel off-colour.

My Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly arrived in the post this morning. I am tempted to settle down and read this now but I am thinking I should save it or maybe I will just take a peek inside?

To all of you who sent me e-cards, e-mails and left comments on my blog wishing me good luck for my surgery, please accept my sincere thanks. I appreciate each and everyone of them. 

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    I'm glad the surgery is going ahead. Now you're all set for it and it fits so well into your plans it's good to get it out of the way. Good luck and take the opportunity to rest and enjoy some good reading :>)

    What a lovely magazine that is. I am on the lookout for some good floral (or any pretty) alphabets. Any ideas?

    Hallo Carol, I know you now from our commun friend Valie. I wish you a lot of good luck for your blessed hand.
    Last week, I discovered the beautiful film about the life of Beatrix Potter. Do you know it? Have a nice time for Eastern. (Sorry for my bad English!)
