i promised pics to a number of people today of my SAL piece and then have decided since i missed heaps of time laying around in bed in a darkened room again that i would stitch her for the rest of the week.. i am on sick leave from model stitching …lol
So no pic for another day or so…
as to what she is… if i said paul got to chose , and he is a boy, would that help anyone who still had not worked it out?
Darkened room, yes another mega sinus episode, i tried toughing it out for 24 hours but got to the throwing up stage again and spent another day in bed , except for two feeble efforts to rearrange wips etc on the BB, so another day on diluted lemonade..
and after a long consultation with my mum, who is the mega sinus expert in my life ( i inherited that, the joint problems the reproductive problems etc from her… lucky me) we decided the elimination diet was making it worse as my body was so stressed and given a lot of my problems stem from my depression and anxiety issues i was just exacerbating everything.. so i am off the diet .. clearly dairy is not an issue with my sinuses as it is for some people as i was dairy free for more than ten days as that was something i did in the lead in to the diet, cut out dairy, my joints were almost unmanageable as the stress spiked my fibromyalgia … so thats that…
BUT i am cutting back on caffiene now anyway.. 2 cups of coffee a day and lots of herbal teas… one of my lovley fairies sent me a herbal tea pack which has arrived as i am typing and it smells devine.. the lavender chamomile will get a work out to night for sure if i can find my tea ball… ( i am worried it has been lost…… and i will have to wait until the weekend to get a new one!) and the vanilla spearmint is demanding attention now
the teas come from T2 which is an awesome place , there is a japanese tea place in Melbourne i love too , but i can never remember the name of it
the T2 online shop is stupid, it is full of silly loading images , but HERE it is i swear some companies go ot of their way to make sites as user unfriendly as possible!!
i think i will order some rose tea soon… i thnk i would like it.. though it looks like pot pourri to me lol
thankyou my little tea fairy ( also doubles as the chocolate fairy!!)
oh and some monet colourstreams silk fell into the pack as well!
Stitching stuff… well i have quietly been working on charting my own piece.. i commissioned an ACEO from my dear cyber friend Michele Lee phelan of Art of Empath /Art of faery and she very kindly gave me permission to chart it for personal use , i would show you the ACEO but i can not work out how to watermark the image , i could ask Paul, but he tends to get cross with me when i don’t understand computer speak… which i never do.
i am sort of torn atm whether to chart as an ACEO qs sort of size 180 x 240ish sort of size or to go bigger at 300x 380-400 sort of size.. what ever i know i will be using a lot of colours as i want her to be perfect i am using the wonderful software sent to me by Cole and lana for my birthday from Hobbyware ( too lazy to link…lol)
oh and i have a new top twelve to be stitched before i die list… surprise surprise..
excluding starts ..
Her special Place .. selina fenech

well i will stop rambling now..
hope no one was bored by that …lol
