Second March break HD!

Well I haven't been online for quite a few days... were you starting to worry?

Saturday morning I headed out to Ann's and helped her re-organize her shop, Knowledge and Needles. After my afternoon of slave labour (of course I offered so one can't complain right? And well it was a great chance to play with lots of stash!), we settled in for some well deserved stitching! I worked on Bug Collector all weekend! Ann and Dan treated me to a really nice dinner out on Saturday night, I'd definitely go to that restaurant again, then ordered in Chinese on Sunday! Oooh I must be at least 5lbs heavier after that!

Monday morning I headed back home. By mid afternoon I crawled into bed not feeling verry well! By 3pm I realized I was running a low-grade fever! Argh! I was not pleased at all, isn't it typical that you get sick when you're on your holidays? I'm feeling better today, my temperature has been very slowly coming down and my tummy is a little sore.

Now onto the good stuff! My second March Break happy dance! May I present : Jeannette Douglas's Bug Collector c2002. Its stitched on some old Silkweaver Colourblooms, Blue Clouds and I just love how the colours pop! This was an awesome piece to stitch and I don't know why I left it sitting in my stash for so long!




Now I'm onto another new piece, once again not small. I thought I'd let this stitching week be for me, to stitch a lot of the smaller pieces I've been wanting to do! I've put aside my model stitching and my SAL's this week! My next project is Little Pumpkin in the Patch by Heart in Hand. I don't have all the overdyed cottons called for so I'll be subbing as needed. So keep an eye on this space...
