Still Stitching despite everything!

I have been stitching away on Three Graces: no pic at the moment, have now completed 100,000 sts a milestone.

We have been away on holiday with our daughters and grandchildren: a really fun time and they want to do it again next, so it must have been OK. (the 4th year running).

However when we got home, our water tank had leaked into the master bedroom: we had to hurriedly move out bits and pieces, but luckily no furniture or the bed was affected. We have had various inspections and are now waiting to have part of the ceiling replaced, the walls and ceiling painted together with new carpets. It could have been a lot worse.

To add to everything else, I had tooth ache, the dentist has put in temporary filling and I am on antibiotics and painkillers, and not looking forward to root treatment next month.

Sorry for the long post, all I can say is thank goodness for stitching. Have enjoyed looking at everyone's WIPs

OMG!! It is a good thing the furniture isn't damaged.
Hope your tooth ache will soon be better, I don't like going to the dentist either. Even I should go now soon, because I have a broken tooth, but it doesn't hurt me ;)

I'm looking forward to see your progress:)

I can't wait to see a pic! I'll have to go look up the pattern, I don't think I know what it looks like. So sorry about your watery mess! I had a hot waterline uner the kitchen sink break while I was at work. Was like a sauna when I came home!

What a nightmare to come home to. I hate Dentists and I hope that your tooth is soon sorted.

Now that sounds like no fun - hope things have settled down now!
