Thanks so much.....

for all your kind comments on the biscornu I stitched for Becky. :) I've been asked about the design - it's based on a chart from Lois Norford titled Linen & Lace Accessories Box - I believe it's out of print. Some of the original design is still there but I did modify it quite a bit.

The never-ending clean out is still going on - I've added more Moda fabric today including some of the sampler prints, as well as a few other stash items. If you'd like to take a peek, please follow this link: Stash Sale

- OOPS! I just realized the link to the fabric wasn't working - it's been fixed now. -

It's gloomy and raining again, the kind of day that you feel like curling up with a good book. I have long neglected e-mail to answer, finishing to get done and a pinkeep to stitch for the HOE exchange but a rhyme keeps going through my head - Rain, rain, go away..... that's making it very hard to resist!

HOE Biscornu Exchange.....

I participated in the biscornu exchange over on the Hooked On Exchanging blog, you know I can't pass up making a biscornu! :)

I received a beautiful biscornu from Sonda along with ribbon, fabric, Silk Weaver linen, Carrie's Creations floss and a lovely chart from Crown & Thistle titled Witches Pocket - all Halloween related.

My package was a couple of days late but flew to my partner Becky arriving in just 2 days.

I was really happy to hear it arrived, I always end up with butterflies in my stomach worrying that my partner won't like what I've stitched or will dislike the goodies I've enclosed. Does this happen to anybody else or is it just me?

Thanks for the kind comments on my new blog look - I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed programming and it's been lots of fun. So much fun that I offered to do one for a friend but she informed me that she wasn't ready for a change until summer! LOL

Tagged, the flu and eBay.....

I've been tagged by Carol to share 7 weird or random facts about myself.

The rules:

Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you

Post the Rules on your blog

Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog

Tag 7 people and link them

Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged

To be perfectly honest, I'm just weird - period. I know it and accept it as do most people who know me. LOL That said, here are a few of the least weird or random facts about me:

I don't drink coffee, in fact, the smell turns my stomach

I sit on the floor when I'm stitching

I really dislike shopping at the mall

I hate wearing shoes and am barefoot whenever possible

I'm tagging (if they want to play):

Ugh, the flu. It ran through my family one by one and despite my telling everybody to stay away, I ended up with it. Almost everybody I talk to has either had it or knows somebody who's had it. It's been a slow recovery but I'm just about feeling human now. I hope you all are well and taking care.....

Being sick(er) forced me to relax in bed with the laptop which allowed time to finally finish a new template. I know it's quite different but I've really had fun putting it together.

I also got a start on the big move of my stitching albums, for the time being they are in the same place as my finishing album. I don't want to change the link in the sidebar with half in one album and half in the other but will once the move is completed.

I thought I'd take a minute to post about one of the latest changes on eBay - the new search page. If like me, you find it user UN-friendly, you can change back to the old search format. Simply scroll to the bottom of any search page, there should be a link to opt out of the new search format. Just my opinion but right now it's too difficult to navigate, especially when you want to search item descriptions in addition to titles.

I'll leave you with a picture of my Christmas cactus - I should quit calling them that. All this crazy weather has postponed the blooming season, they're almost Easter cactus at this point.....

and lastly, my one and only stitching stash addition since my last post. Not sure how I feel about the linen yet but the snowman is very cute.

Til next time.....
