Happy Friday :)

Anyone else as glad it's Friday as I am? I ended up staying home from work today .. my cold has settled in my sinuses and I've had a headache now for three days. I did start my antibotics on Wednesday .. sure hope something starts working soon .. this is getting really old! lol I watched The Jane Austin Book Club on DVD today .. has anyone else seen this movie? I really enjoyed it. It wasn't at all what I expected, but I enjoyed the story line .. the characters and their interactions. The ending was a bit too "nice" .. but all in all I would really recommend this movie.

I have been stitching a bit here and there .. I started Lizzie Kate's Double Flip-it's .. I'm stitching them a a pretty piece of banding. I'm almost done with Spot of Love .. I'll post some pictures over the weekend.

The bright day of my week was Thursday .. when this wonderful stitcher's bource arrived in my mailbox. Sally stitched this as a PIF for me. I've never seen one up close and personal .. didn't she do a lovely job!



and look at the stitching inside! I just love the colors and the alphabet, and the adorable flowers in the middle ... opps, I forgot to take a picture of the colorful threads that were hiding inside the bource when I opened it ...


Sally, thank you so very much .. your stitching and finishing are beautiful. Thank you for stitching this for me ...


I'm grateful for stitching gifts ...

Wow, what a lovely bourse. Your earlier finish of SB's Christmas Drawer's was beautiful too. Congratulations on finishing an older WIP, and one that it sounds presented quite a few challenges. What a feeling of accomplishment that must have given you.

Sorry to hear that you're still not feeling well. I hope that you can start feeling better soon and the antibiotics help. Unfortunately getting bugs in this weather they just seem to hang on forever.

LK's double flip its is such a pretty design, can't wait to see a picture of your progress.

My antibiotics are working great! Hope yours kick in soon too!!!

The bourse is really pretty. Just wondering, are they usually decorative or do people put things in them?

Sally said...

So pleased the bourse arrived safely and that you like it:)

Hope you're feeling much better soon.
