A Finish!!

Hi there blogging buddies!

Here I am, trying to get things back to normal...and hoping that will happen in the near future!  People have been so wonderful to my husband and myself, bringing meals, and flowers, and balloons!  It's almost like this has been a party...and hopefully will be the last surgery ever!!  We can hope anyway!

So...I've been trying to keep busy while lounging around the place by stitching up a storm!  It's gone a bit slowly as for some bizarre reason I'm still having trouble with vertigo.  It's kept me from traveling the stairs (quite a feat while living in a townhouse I assure you!!) but thankfully hasn't bothered too much while stitching.  I was able to finally finish my Matter's Choice from Carriage House Samplings.  Now the tough decision will be how/when to have this framed...or should I make it into a pillow?

I also received a lovely exchange in the mail from Tricia over at The Stamper's Stitches last week.  I just haven't found the time/energy to post this until today.  It is lovely!!  And I found a red handled pair of scissors to put it on straight away!  Not only did she send the scissors fob, but several hand made cards, that are so lovely, it will be hard to part with them!!  Tricia, you are so talented, I love what you've stitched and will treasure it always!  What a fun exchange!

I heard of a new giveaway happening on a blog called Everybody Loved Clark.  You can click on the title to visit the blog...she is looking for new followers so lets help her out, shall we?

I don't know whether to thank or curse my pal, Astrid.  She told me about this show that her parents have been watching called McLeod's Daughters which I found on Netflix.  I'm almost through the 6th season!  What a fun adventure I'm having watching these shows, but fear that the show ends soon.  What ever will I do to fill my hours once I've watched all the episodes?  If you tell me it's time to switch to another British show your parents watch, I'll have to find something else to rest up from so I can immerse myself in whatever comes next.  LOL  I hope I'm feeling better soon, I need sunshine and stitch dates or I'll go bonkers!  

Off to heat up our next dinner provided by our church pals.  I don't know how I've managed to lose weight while eating all these healthy and delicious meals...let's hope I continue down this path, though, I could stand to lose more!!  I hope you had a very happy and healthy 4th of July!  See you next time!  *Hugs*

OOh, it looks beautiful! I think it could make a really nice pillow, something different for you.

Now wait a minute, I'm not even that far in the series! But no fear, I'm sure I can come up with something else when it's over. ;)

Can't wait to see you next week, hope we'll be feeling much better!
