Of course, DH being sick meant that I had to be a bit more hands-on with the kids since he couldn’t do much because dengue fever is really debilitating. That left little time for stitching. I’m happy to report, though, that I did manage to get some work done. I dug out Still Waters on Saturday night to catch up on my SAL with Melissa and here’s how far I got:
I also put a few more words into To Laugh Often. I’d not picked it up since January so it was high time to get it out again. DH asked me when I was planning to give this to my Dad, and I said November this year for his birthday. ‘Course, he was supposed to have received it LAST year for his birthday, but I’m not called The Slow Stitcher for nothing!
Some stash arrived, which made me happy. I think I will stop now, since my stash boxes are overflowing and I think I’ve achieved S.A.B.L.E.
That’s all, folks! Be stitchy!
After news of SBEBB closing broke, one of my blog readers kindly invited me to join the Tiny Treasures Exchange group. I signed up for the very first exchange for a scissor fob, and received this lovely fob from Lisa.
I just love it! It goes perfectly with my current pair of scissors, which is red. Thank you, Lisa.
My own exchange went out a few days late and I feel so bad about it, but one of my little girls fell seriously ill recently and I spent a full week with her in the hospital, so everything had to be put on hold until she was well enough to be discharged. Thankfully my fob and SBEBB Frosty Friends have both gone out in the mail, and I only have one outstanding exchange left to fulfil.
Since it doesn’t look like I will be participating in many other exchanges this year, I have resolved to catch up on all my WIPs that are threatening to become UFOs. I pulled out To Laugh Often, which I am stitching as a gift for my Dad, and made some headway on it in the last couple of days. Dad’s had some worrying news about his health lately, and I’m hoping this will cheer him up.
Please excuse the rumpled linen, I’ll be giving this a good iron when it’s finally finished!
