MAW rec'd and a small finish

Hi! Well last week i rec'd a scissor pocket (pochette) from Jill from the MAW board. I absolutely love it. It's red and quaker, PERFECT!

I also have started and finished "Stash Keep" by Homespun Elegance that Michele sent me for Christmas. Now hopefully this weekend, maybe i will finish it onto the tin she also sent. This was such a fun quick stitch. I stitched it on some coffee dyed fabric using some leftover "greenish" silks i had on hand.





I have about 3 or 4 other finishes as well but can't show them yet. You have to wait for those to be rec'd first.

Not much else really going on around here. It is warm, in the mid 70's all week long. I also got my IV taken out on Sunday, whew! I was tired of eating everything in site from the meds. I am feeling better now that the steroids are finally kicking out of my system. Going to have a low key weekend and maybe a finishing weekend as well.

Thanks for the comment Karen! Loved your exchange and stitching - both are lovely. Waving from the RR - this should be fun. Don't have a clue how I want it done yet!

The scissors pocket is lovely. And I'm glad you're feeling a little better. I can't imagine going around with an IV port for all that time.

Do you ever get together for cross stitch and fun/chat? I live in Mesa, AZ and would love to get together with a group of like minded women :) I'm 37 and have 4 kids. Um, you can see me on my blog.
