august 27 - playing catch-up

It's been a long time since I've really posted to this blog...the summer has just flown by and I'm not even sure what I've been doing! This week I know what I've been doing though - feeling lousy! I came home from work on Monday and went straight to bed and Tuesday my hubby convinced me to see the doctor. He says I have a nasty viral respiratory something and told me to stay home all week. So I have been! Unfortunately I've been sleeping most of my time away and feeling generally lousy the rest of the time!
I have done a bit of stitching...I had an exchange all ready to mail and then when I was ironing it the fabric turned all ugly, so I had to start over. I used the same design just a different finish, and now I hope to get to the post office to mail it tomorrow. I actually had 2 exchanges to do, one for an ornament exchange and one for the year long Prairie Schooler exchange. And I ended up with the same partner for both! I hope she'll be ok with that!
I also heard that my round 14 squares for fair and square have been received so here is a picture of those. I stitched one of the doodles from San-Man. Sorry for the poor photo!

I also received a wonderful pinkeep ornament from Becky for the ornament exchange. It is an LHN design and I just love it. Thanks again Becky!

So my mother and her "friend" are coming to visit tomorrow. They've driven cross-country from Massachusetts and she just called to say they are across the river from Hood River which is very near here. I don't know how long they'll be staying. We'll have the baby this weekend and I know that is who they really want to see!
I'm still working on Beatrix Potter and also trying to finish up Alla Turca...maybe I'll have some progress to show after the weekend....maybe!
Before I go, please visit Jan's blog. She has her very first design ready to go and it is beautiful. And she is having a giveaway for a copy of the design. So good luck!

Thanks for visiting and for all your wonderful comments. I really do appreciate them!

  6. Hi Lynda,

    I am just delighted that you were able to stitch 2 things for me from two different exchanges. Both are just lovely and I am a 'prim' person and love Stacy Nash things.

    Thank you for both of my little exchanges, will post a picture to the exchang groups and also to my blog.

    Lynda, I also believe we were exchange partners many years ago!!??


  7. Here's hoping you are feeling all better by now. Such lovely stitching deserves a healthy stitcher. :)

  8. I hope you're feeling better... well at least well enough to stitch!

    Great F&S!

  9. All your stitching is beautiful!
