Fight Like a Girl: with needles

In my last post I gave you a free chart: this chart forms part of my Pink Key Designs which were a bit of fun to raise funds for Cancer Research.

Cath Willey (her blog can be found here, The Stitchinchicken) has kindly offered to stitch 'Fight like a girl' for me.  Here is her finished item. Cath emailed me to tell me she finished it as a book mark but it could also be a cute little hanger as well.

What do you think?

 I think she has done an absolutely stunning job of it and whilst I would have liked to have stitched it myself, I have other charts in my head waiting to be created and other 'real life issues' tearing my spare time away from me.

 Today was my youngest son's 13th birthday.  I am not allowed to put pictures up on my blog but he had a lovely day.  He cycles with me when I train so he came out with me in the gorgeous sunshine and then he chose barbecue for his birthday meal so that was just perfect.  A lot of work for me though!

My eldest son who is 18 is off to the UK next week: he has six weeks work experience in the UK and he wants to look for a job there, so that means lots of packing and worrying about him.  On a plus side, I get a week to myself as hubby is taking him over there with my youngest boy for a break with granny and grandad.

 I'm now training in earnest and today walked 5 km in boiling hot sunshine which was wonderful until I looked in the mirror and saw how red my face was; boiled lobster pink!  It seems it was just the heat as I am not sun burnt thankfully.  Oh this sunshine though: isn't it wonderful?

So, Cathy, a huge, huge thank you for stitching this for me.  You are so kind and I am very greatful.
You have done a superb job and it looks amazing. Thank you.

You can find the chart in the previous post and the giveaway is in the one after that...I know.
Confusing: I have added a label for the giveaway xx

Have a lovely week
