...aaaaaand,we're back! May FNSI

Phew, it's been a frustrating couple of weeks but it looks like things may be returning to normal *touch wood*
I don't want to jinx myself but I'm hoping this household has finally turned the 'mayhem' corner and is zooming down the straight.
So....seems the NBN lines have settled during the day so I'm giving it a try a-g-a-i-n   (I tell you, I'm getting a little bit over trying to schedule a blog post and when I'm nearly finished, the whole lot drops out....tear your hair out stuff).
Back to it.....FNSI...

Here is what I got up to....
...I dabbled in a bit of everything on Friday night....a little bit of stitchery, some hexi swap fun and a bit of applique.    Didn't achieve much at all, but felt like a 'taster' of a few different things.  I'd been working full time last week, with the boss away, and I just couldn't settle so getting up and moving about with a few different things seemed to do the trick.

Have you been to visit our other ladies to see what they've been up to yet?  Pop back here and click on the links to go and see the gorgeousness that was created.

 
Now remember I said it was my birthday month this month....


                      ......... and everyone who plays along gets a prize?
Ok.....here it is.....for all those FNSI'ers who joined in on Friday night this month, I will be sending you the pattern for this beauty......a reminder a very dear friend has told me on numerous occasions and one I have had to remember often this past few weeks!......
 I designed this stitchery to remind me that it's more than just important, it's ESSENTIAL to slow down and b-r-e-a-t-h-e.

This past few weeks I've been caught holding my breath and just contemplating what a 'normal' life could be like.....I look at this stitchery, I think of my friend Jen, and I can hear her whisper in my ear...."slow down and breathe".  ...and I remember to stop and smell the roses, and life becomes easier, even if only for a while.



For those of you who didn't join in and now wish they had, don't worry.....breathe.......because I'll have the pattern up and available for purchase in my store tonight.  For only $3.50 USD you can stitch up your own version to suit your decor, or even one for a friend.  I've used the gorgeous Cottage Garden Variegated Threads for mine but if you can't get those, you could easily use any others.

I hope you like this one as much as I do...they're valuable words of wisdom from a dear friend to another.
