Despite a fibro flare up and little sleep I have found some stitching enthusiasm again. These are the 3 stitcheries for block 8 of the BOM. I still have most of the previous blocks to piece before the final block is released next month but, as usual, I dilly dally choosing what fabrics go where and find it rather tedious. 

Recently my mum was clearing out a few things and she found some of my grandmother's buttons which she has now given me.

It was quite unusual for me not to have been reading much lately but , thankfully, my reading mojo returned and I enjoyed another Victoria Purman book.

I am currently enjoying a book written by a new author which I shall share next time.

Alas, not much stitching shall be done today as I am still in a Codeine fog after finally getting to sleep around 6am this morning. Oh how I look forward to some warmer.

Keep safe and well.
