I Should Be Dancing!

Cranky - that's the best word I can use to describe me tonight...I'm not used to being crabby and cranky, it's just not my nature. I took a little stumble down the stairs on Saturday afternoon and now my right foot is swollen and sore. That makes me cranky.

On the bright side though, since I had to stay off the foot Saturday night and all day yesterday, I got some serious stitching done! Wahoo! Please do a happy dance for me because I can't dance right now!

Here's finish #1 -- LHN Counting House. This has been in my UFO pile for awhile. I started it last year (or maybe it was the year before?) I used the recommended fabric and fibers.



And finish #2 -- Lizzie Kate's Here Comes Santa Claus. I just started this one about a week ago but it's been in my stash all kitted up for a cuple of years.

And lets not forget about Edgar's ornament - I should have posted this picture last week. Edgar was the recipient of our monthly ornament exchange for October. The design is by Annemiek of the Needle's Content. Edgar loves reindeer.


That's it for tonight. Check back tomorrow night. I received a really cool exchange from Nicki for the SBEBB Pumpkin Patch exchange. Too late, too dark to take a picture tonight...

Your stitching is always so lovely and nice to see. I hope your ankle feels much better soon.

Nicki said...

ouch - I hope your foot gets better soon. Rest it as much as you can - so hard to do I know :( Have you got arnica cream? It really helps.

Love the finishes - congratulations! And so relieved you don't hate the exchange. A bit different! I would rather it was more firmly stuffed but I used two bags and ran out! I hadn't thought about how big it was going to get and nowhere sells stuffing near me :(

Oh! So sorry to hear about your tumble! Hope your foot is feeling better today. That would make me cranky too!
I LOVE Counting House. It's beautiful. Love the fabric color.

Well I guess there's a silver lining to your unfortunate rain cloud - more stitching time! :) Hope you're good as new real soon.

Your finishes are lovely! Lizzie Kates always make me smile.

(And pssst....check out my blog....your RR is ready to come home! I'm sorry I couldn't do 2 squares for you, though -- time nad my stitching mojo just got away from me. *sigh* )
