Rebbeca is my Oldie For Friday!

Good afternoon my Crafty Friends and anyone who visits.  Well we are almost into another weekend, and another month, we are galloping through the year.
I hope you are all well, but here's a huggggggg for those who are not so well.
I'm well and I know because I was at the Diabetic Clinic at my surgery this morning to get various diabetic test results, and all is tickity boo and they are very pleased with me, good blood control, blood pressure, cholesterol, etc. all good, so it's now just maintaining the good work.

I've got quite a few days off work now, the way the rota works every alternate week I have five days off, so it gives me time to rest and refresh, which I feel has contributed to my good diabetic health, so today I am taking it easy, and will get stuck into housework over the next few days.

I thought I would show a piece of embroidery from about twenty years ago, it was my first ever piece and I was so chuffed by it that I had it framed and it is now on our wall.  There are mistakes if you looked closely and I'm sure a good embroiderer would spot them, but never mind I love her;
Sorry about the photo, I just could'nt getget rid of the reflection of the window.  It is quite a big piece of work and I remember the framing costing more that the piece of canvas and threads put together.

I hope you like it, and I will see you all again soon, off now to have a look at your lovely creations.

This is gorgeous Kate what a stunning piece of work and so nice to have it framed like that. I always wished I could embroider, I only did cross stitch, my mother could embroider but she never taught me. My Dad was in the Navy and even embroidered two pillow slips for me as a Baby which I still have! Susan x

What a fantastic piece of work Kate. Well done. I could never do embroidery - the most I could manage was cross stitch.

MRS DUCK said...

Hi Kate
Wow! She must have taken you an age but she's stunning. Well worth the price of framing. I've got a couple of framed cross stitch my friend did for me and wish I had the patience to do it (and the time lol!)
Glad your health MOT went well. Enjoy your few days away from work.
