Just Nan SAL!

Well, I have done more stitching on Just Nan's Tree Hollow Hoot and only need to finish some of the leaves in the right corner. BUT, my out board hard drive with all the pics died! The camera is out of batteries, SO, I don't have a pic to post. I hope to get the hard drive up downloaded to other discs and get the info at least.

Edit-- Finally got batteries for the camera. Still don't have hard drive up and running.

What I received in Exchange!

This is what came in my exchange on Heathers' blog.
This came from Cucki in S Africa.

A close up of the cute ladybug biscornu. It is only 3 inches across.

Thank you Heather and Cucki for the great exchange!

Exchange Received!

Sent these to Germany to Brita. The exchange was organized by Heather at Heathers Stitching Story. I also made and included a needle minder, a matchbook needle book and a scissor fob. The package has arrived and I can now publish the pics.

 As legend has it, the Prairie Fairie rides on the wings of a blackbird and scatters sunflower seeds over open fields the night of the first full moon of summer.

In her patchwork dress and pincushion hat the Stitching Fiaire rides on the wings of her sewing bird, completing all those unfinished projects with the needle and thread she always carries with her.

I am in the process of stitching the third design in this series and have the fourth waiting in the drawer. I will stitch these two again for my own enjoyment.

Youngest Son!
Had his knee repaired last August.
Was visiting friends in Arizona and his knee started to hurt.
Came home and went to the ER. He has an infection in his knee and calf. Had surgery to remove the infection as antibiotics were not doing the job. Surgeon says his knee is looking great but not sure where the infection came from. Still in the hospital since Tuesday as he still has a fever and chills off and on and the knee is now needing to heal again.

This is the 6th surgery on the same knee. He hurt it while he was in the Army in 2004 and it has been going down hill ever since. Had the ACL rebuilt twice.

To say the least I am not getting much stitching done. My exchange did arrive in Germany though.

Just Nan SAL Update

Just Nan-Tree Hollow Hoot update. Colors are actually much brighter and crisper.
Used white instead of the orange, I wanted to get started and couldn't find an orange.
