Well didn't I just drop off the face of the earth. I've been so slacking in my stitching it's not even FUNNY. Going through one of those slumps, it seems.

I did start Little House Needleworks Summer Splendor after seeing Mouse's progress on it. I got one of the birds stitched in and a few leaves, but that's it!

On with April Goals! Lets see how I did.

- Mail threads and pokemonz  I mailed the threads, but not the pokemon. He wants me to finish Eevee before I mail them, since I'm sending it to AUS, he wants me to save money.. but I have to get Eevee done. doh.

- Continue on with Follow Me/Letter S Didn't get much of either done. Follow me was put away until I feel like working on it again. Letter S sort of got thrown on the backburner because the client I stitch it at is away at respite for 3 weeks. I go back there on the 12th of May, so I'm hoping to get working on it again then.

- Stitch up Rageface for another Guildie. It suits him perfectly haha. Stil…

It's been a week

hi guys. I've not had the best week ever. On Wednesday one of clients passed away and it being my first actual client witnessed death, I've been taking it a little hard. I am glad that she passed away at home, but her poor husband had no idea she had passed on and we (coworker and I) had to give him the bad news. My Coworker told me I could leave at that point, but I decided to stay and help the husband call his family while she called the office, and wait for family to arrive so he wouldn't be alone with her.

I've been using the treadmill all week as well, and I am really enjoying it. I also saw my doctor on Tuesday and got the bad news that my blood pressure is through the roof. She's giving me the month to see if I can bring it down with low sodium diet/increased activity before putting me on medications for it.

I don't really feel like working on Follow Me right now. Doesn't seem very appropriate

I think I might pull out another project to work on.

I di…


Well then, this week is turning out to be another really busy week at work. Stitching is at an all time low, I'm afraid. I did get my Birthday stash a month after I ordered it.. I present to you my three Mirabilia Fairies!

Sorry about the glare, they are in a plastic sleeve and my Ott-Lite is like right there!

Theresa over at Shakespeare's Peddler is trying to raise money for the Gatos to have more fun in their lives. She is offering needlework goodies (fibers/embellishments/patterns) in exchange for 50 USD! She did mention in the post about US residents... I emailed her anyway to ask if I could join in the fun if I sent a little extra to cover postage to Canada. I really hope she says yes! You can click the link and see what it's all about, and if you have the extra dough lying around maybe you could help her out too :)

SHE REPLIED! and yes she'll ship to Canada, hurray! I was so excited that I was about to get dressed and head to the post office to get a MO and mail …
