My dear friend Valie
has already discovered that I lack patience and this is the theme of the lovely pinkeep I received from her in today's mail! It is perfectly stitched and finished in such pretty colours with a co-ordinating fabric back. I have decided that it shall live in front of my computer to remind me that 'Patience is a Virtue'! Thank you so much Valie.
And can you see the tiny stand? I had admired how Andrea
displayed her pinkeeps and asked her where she got her tiny 'easels' and she told me they are plate stands. I promptly paid a little visit to ebay and brought 10 of these little beauties for £3.99 (here
). They are perfect for displaying pinkeeps and other small pieces of needlework.
I have removed the bandage from my hand and, after bathing the wound with warm salt water, I now have a Mepore dressing on. It's healing very well although it's still a bit bruised and slightly swollen - just look at those fat fingers! The stitches will be removed on April 7. I am exercising both my fingers and wrist but not too much (such patience Valie) - I don't want to pop those stitches!
Yesterday was a beautiful warm sunny day and I was able to sit outside in the garden with my book - sheer heaven!
Thanks for visiting
