On Friday I came home from work to find another package on my front steps. I was in a bit of a rush to let Rory out and catch poor Rosie. I had to get her to the vet since she had been sneezing and Thursday night had started coughing. Not a good thing for a cat. I didn't have a chance to open it until rather late that night. I couldn't figure out what I might have ordered and forgot about. Well I hadn't. It was RAK from Carolyn! The BH&G Christmas book with the pattern of Lo How A Rose E'er Blooming. I had been wanting this ever since I saw it stitched first on Vonna's blog and then on Edgar's. Thank you so very, very much Carolyn.
Another lovely package in the mail this week contained my exchange in the Lizzie Kate exchange. My partner was Cindy Mae and she stitched me one of my favorite LK pattern's, Live, Laugh, Love. She used pastel colors and made it into a pillow. I love it!! Thank you so very, very much Cindy Mae. It will look perfect in my Mom's old room which is lavender. Oh, and doesn't have a goofy, clumsy four footed chewing monster sleeping in that room. LOL Because the pillow would also be perfect in my room which is pink. But I do think it is safer in the other bedroom. Don't you?
Aren't stitchers just the best people on the planet?
I did have two finishes this week. Both are exchanges. One for the Lizzie Kate Exchange Blog (and I believe that it is now open for second round sign ups) and the other for a yahoo group, BBI, ornament exchange. I am pretty pleased with the way both of them came out and should be able to post photos as soon as they arrive at their new homes.
I did manage to get a little stitching for myself in this weekend. I started Lauren's Voice by La D Da. I have been aching to get this one stitched ever since I won it in Sherry's giveaway back in June. I didn't get that much stitched, only the word Your, but it is a start. And speaking of Rory. He continues to make me smile. I only wish I could really capture some of his silliness on film. Such as trying to catch an airplane or a helicopter. Yup, while he will often freeze and "set" a bird he absolutely wants to catch one of those noisy HUGE ones up in the sky! He will run from one end of the yard to the other, up the deck and, if he could up on the roof following one of those noisy "birds." And Canadian Geese? Well, they have a flight path that goes directly over my house. Quite often just after sunset they will fly over on their way to where ever. Have you ever heard geese flying overhead? They honk and call out to each other continually and they are NOT quiet about it. And Rory? If he happens to be in the house I better get up and open the door fast! Well, he goes ballistic trying to jump up and catch one. It is just too too funny.
Love and stitches
and licks from Rory too
PS. The vet says Rosie has a respiratory infection and I should continue with the two antibiotics. Her sneezing has eased a bit, the coughing has stopped and she is eating. So she will soon be well.
