Hope everyone is having a nice long weekend. We are having lovely weather, it's been about 65-70, but it's been raining overnight .. silly weather. I had lots of plans for this weekend, but another headcold has me coughing so hard I've had a headache for a few days. So other than laundry and stitching I haven't done much at all .. what a waste of a good long weekend :( I even missed going with the family to the new Indiana Jones movie Friday night .. guess I'd better be calling my dr .. I've had a few too many of these colds and nothing seems to touch it for any lenght of time. Although NightQuil capsuls do let me sleep through most of the night.
I got my biscornu finished and mailed to my exchange partner. I'll post a picture when she receives it .. it turned out ok .. but not as wonderful as the biscornu I received from Malinda ... look at this lovely biscornu she stitched for me, with red flowers even! lol
stitched on the back of the biscornu is Pals (the message board for the exchange), our names and the year ... don't you love the buttons she found :)
and here's the other goodies she sent .. tea from her recent Bahama's vacation, a chart by Praiseworthy Stitches (my first!) and two fun Lizzie*Kate charts .. see, there's a reindeer! lol Thanks Malinda for stitching this biscornu for me, I love everything .. you should have an email from me too :)
I've beeen stitching on my 4th of July F&S exchange and a beach fob exchange so there's no pictures to share ... yet. Hope everyone gets to put in a few x's this weekend :)
I'm grateful for learning a new finishing techinque ...
