Creative update!

Although it's been AGES since I posted something arty and crafty, I have been busy. One that I completed I can't publish in case the person it is intended for gets wind of it...enough said.
Instead I'll show you what I got up to over the last few weekends. Dot (the dear lady next door) recently purchased a slimline modern light box. I forget the proper name for it, but she invited me over to use it. I traced all of my springtime motifs and today bought whisper weft, cut it and ironed it on.
The squares are now ready for the embroidery to commence.

I've also still had project life on the go - am way behind in printing photos though, and if you visit my Turkish Delights meets 12WBT blog you'll see the reward charts and reward jar that I gleefully created last week!!

So, watch this space to see how these lovelies turn out!

3 months...

How fast did the last 3 months go...parts of it seemed frozen in time....yet here I am, still in one piece 3 1/2 months on from the loss of our angelbaby.

This week we reached the 3 month milestone since I had my vaccinations, which means we can start trying again. I don't know what I thought would happen, but it was just a day like any other - nothing earth shattering occurred but it was a pretty big deal for me. I don't have to remember to buy condoms anymore - something we have never used in our entire marriage. I hate them, Marko hates them. Random I know..

So we are officially trying again. Our loss still haunts me and the pain clutches at my heart now and then but I'm not as desperately lost as I was. I definitely still have those moments, but not as frequently.

Hopefully soon we'll have some good news.
