Weekend Finishes

Thank You....

I want to Thank all of you for your concern over my mishap on Friday. I did call the doctor and he thinks it was a slight heat stroke but since I was able to recover so quickly and had no lasting effects from it there was no need to be seen. He did say to be more careful in the heat and be sure to always have water to keep hydrated. I'm still sore where I landed but that too will improve with time.

Finishes....

Since I was hurting I did nothing this weekend but lay in the bed (it hurt to sit too long) or stitch. I really want to get a big bunch of ornies done this year and will probably make July my Ornament Stitching Month. To get started I printed off a bunch of free designs by Victoria Sampler. To start off I did this.....


"Gingerbread Cookie Ornament" by Victoria Sampler
Stitched on 28 count Cashel with
various fibers
I still need to find the perfect fabric for the backing for this. I think I want a solid red so it doesn't take away from the design.
Another Cube.....



I don't remember when I stitched this design but I do remember it's from one of the JCS Ornament issues. I think the fabric is perfect for the design.
A Gift.....
I know how I've gone on and on about how sweet my DH Tracy is and how he spoils me rotten. He felt so bad after my fall on Friday he just had to cheer me up with this cute little froggy. He got it for me while we on Fremont St after dinner.






The necklace will probably turn my neck green when I wear it but I really don't care since he was go sweet to get it for me. I think I'll take the necklace out of the frog and use it to hold my tiny stitching supplies like my needle threaders.

I'm still working on the 3rd Christmas In My Heart design and should have it finished in the next day or two and then on to more ornaments I think.

Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

Glad that you have spoken with the doctor Rene and I hope that the pain goes away quickly.
Beautiful stitching as always and I love the cube. I have got to try one of my own.
Your DH should write a book on how to be a great husband, it would surely be a best seller! That frog is so cute :-)
Have a great week x

Sorry to hear about your accident, but glad you are feeling better. The cube and ornament are great, you finish so well. That frog is too cute and the necklace inside is precious. Take it easy now that it is very hot.
