Thats enough of that.

The last couple of weeks may have been pretty miserable, but I have made some slow progress.
I wanted to do so much more with this little Christmas Tree, but I've run out of time. It's just machine appliqued onto the back ground with some brass charms as the baubles, then last night I quilted around the tree and added the binding, which I just need to finish closing.
Then I'll add a couple of hanging tabs. It will be ready to post. It's got a long way to go.

I've also added two petals and a leaf to my floral trio.

And made a start on another Christmas gift. Guess who this is! LOL

I did this little bit you see here last night. Hunney and I sat up in the study, I didn't stay long cause I was tired.
I have a rare late shift today so plan to close the binding on the tree this morning and then do some more to Santa before going in to work.
Thank you all for your support and kind words, if it's ok with you I might post every week after seeing my therapist, because this week has been so much easier, and I'm sure it's thanks to you ladies.
1) A better week.
2) A late shift!
3) Sleeping late.

Your floral trio is very pretty.

Your Xmas tree quilt is super too. Today I saw a quilt pattern that called to me, so I might just have to give quilting a go myself.

I agree with Anne, a problem shared is a problem halved. Whatever helps you through it.

Thanks for sharing, I have only just caught up and my heart goes out to you. You can always use the blog, and don't feel that you need to get away from it, positive comments really help make a day.
I love what you are working on, the tree looks very cute... I can't believe your patience on the cros stitch.
Have a good day, lol Tracey

Hi Lou, I've been catching up with my regular blogreads after an absence of a month, and have just finished reading yours. Well, I'm gob-smacked by your 'confession' - I would never have known anything was wrong, going by your regular blog posts! You always sound so cheerful. Poor girl, I just can't imagine having a father like that. My Dad was an Angel. I've written a tribute to him on one of my other blogs. But you don't need to hear about that right now.
I can relate to your relationship with your first husband. My first one used to take his temper out on me too.
I'm thinking of you, sending white light to heal your soul.
