WIP Wednesday

How can a simple cold be so complicated.  The lung specalist has told me that I have bronchiectasis,  I have had further tests and am trying to come to terms with it all.  I caught a simple cold which turned into major complications and am informed that this is what will happen every time I get a cold.  The Dr. put me on 2 types of antibotics at once, his words were "We rarely do this, but it is a case of keeping you out of hospital."   I am starting to feel a little better but have lost my voice at the moment.

I have been working on a Christmas Card Holder designed by Ann Francene Dimmer. The pattern is from Handmade magazine.

I am really pleased with how it is looking and thanks to Jenny of Elefantz   (she has a timely tutorial on doing binding and mitred corners) I am now ready to stitch the binding down and add a few little emblishments to it and then it is finished.

I have also been working a little on Sweet Nectar - this is a long time UFO
Sweet Nectar - Dimensions kit

May God bless you and give you peace this week.
