Morning, running a little late this morning, first proper nights sleep in ages didn’t even wake up with a hot flush lol! Love the hair Bee you look fab!. Waving hi to everyone :wave: and fabulous work everyone

Ah Max I get those a lot. I’ve found that a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar from the health food shop WITH THE MOTHER (!) reallyt helps. Once or twice a week I add water and drink it fast through a straw (it’s not pleasant). Together with a soya hot chocolate every evening, I haven’t had any really sweaty hot flushes for ages, although I do still get rather warm. I’ve also swapped my duvet for a collection of wool and cotton blankets that I can shed through the night.

Here’s my pocsa pen witch, I’m rather pleased her

Thanks Margaret, she’s been in my head for at least a year so it’s nice to get her out of there and onto paper at last!

Must have been painful to have a witch and a bonfire in your head all year! :wink:

That’s a beautiful purse Brenda, so pretty. I love how unique it is too.

Waving to everyone :smile:

I got a little more done on my white doves (decided that would be better than seagulls and since they are basically the same apart from the feet and colouring, it wasn’t a big change to make).

And here’s a new listing

Margaret @Louisa15 That’s quite a challenge you have there. With many of the thread colours being so similar … your powers of concentration must be immense. I know from passed experience, when wearing my Amathusia Designs, Barbara Skelton hat, how tricky it can be. http://www.crossstitchers.co.uk/section.php?xSec=162

Bee, those designs are gorgeous, I love the floral ones particularly. Yes I like a challenge, and sometimes if I count slightly wrong, with the colours being so similar it doesn’t really matter, it makes mine unique! :smile:

Stephie, love the cat silhouetted against the flames, you do flames so well and it’s so hard to do!

Waving everyone else! :slight_smile:

What’s everyone up to today? I’ve been out with hubs to buy him a new winter coat, he needed a new one last winter really but he hates shopping with a vengeance. It was so easy - we went to the Range, he tried one on and we bought it, job done!

I’m off to catch up with my sketch diary now, my dad was here yesterday so I have two days to do.
