Wild Week

Whew! I'm glad this week is over! It didn't start on a good note. I came down with a nasty cold and missed two days of work; somehow pulled myself through the rest of the week. Definitely have more energy today but am not recovered from the bug by a long shot!

I'm happy to report that my Halloween exchange was received by Svenja in Germany this week. I love this Lizzie Kate design; stitched it for myself last year. Sent a few other goodies along with it. I'm so glad that she liked it!



Tomorrow, I'm going to a finishing class at my "not so local" LNS (it's a 45 minute drive one way). I'm going to learn how to make a weighted stand-up. Look for the results on my blog later this weekend!

Also, I have some finishes to share. In between napping on Monday and Tuesday, I finished a couple of the Essy Friends kits I've been ignoring for the past several months. Figured October would be a good month to get caught, particular since it is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Stay tuned.

Thanks for visiting!

Your halloween exchange is so cute! Your finishing looks fantastic, as usual. Can't wait to see the result of your finishing class tomorrow. Sounds kewl! Feel better! Colds are nasty, nasty thing.

Just gorgeous!! Looking forward to hearing your experiences with the stand up class, I've been thinking about buying a book on this technique.

As a fellow cold sufferer, I empathize with you...I've been nursing one since Wednesday. Feel better!
