An Emblem of Love SAL, Week Two

Tonight was the second night of the Emblem of Love SAL. I really love working on this project. It took forever to stitch the tree, but I did manage to get the first medallion finished now - a sweet little bluebird in an apple tree... makes me think, "awwwwwww." LOL. My scan is a little crooked, but what else is new!!

Thank you to everyone who offered me a lot of support with my record review today. I am really pleased to let you know it went extremely well. I was nervous at first. They only sent one reviewer out, and when I saw who it was, I was pretty disappointed. I didn't get the best vibe off of this guy when he was my area case manager a couple of years ago. And, since they sent one reviewer, not two, I couldn't kind of eavesdrop and try to get a sense of how the review was going. Unfortunately, he didn't have a habit of talking to himself either. I was a bit at ease that he was not bringing any of the 15 client charts I gave him back to me asking for missing items. That is never a good sign when they do that! And, he was due to review until 12:30, but he approached me at noon to say he was ready. He gave me a very quick summary. No charge backs and no correction plans needed - very good review! The only things he came up with was having me add new things to forms - things I never could have even guessed about... so I figure I won't see them for another couple of years now :-) And, I get a rate increase that is retroactive to July 31st. I already knew I got that a couple of weeks ago, but today's news helped me to really realize that all is well!
Daylily: Patterns

**** Anyone know anyone who can play baseball?? The Red Sox really, really need your help if you do! They are a walking MASH unit - who isn't hurt or down with the stomach flu at this point?? I can't think of any of them that don't fit into either or both of those two categories - yikes!!!! What horrible luck for them this year! They aren't even playing at a contending level any longer.

Stitched on today: An Emblem of Love

Hi Carol!
You've sure been busy the last few days! Lots of progress on MTM, EoL, and Mystery IX - all just beautiful.

I'm so pleased that everything went well with your review today, and I'm sure you're relieved it's all over - hurray!!

The daylilies you're sharing with us every day are delightful! Love the names of some of them, especially Cat Dancer. :D

Carol, your emblem is coming along nicely, your doing it multi colored,which is not common, most Ive seen do it mono color.

I will make a deal with you I will send good vibes to your "red soxs"if you will send good vibes to our "Redskins" I know its football but they really, really need some help to get this season off the ground.

Congrats on your review, did you get the 9-11 chart yet? If you have book marked my blog stitches-by-jean, then take it off please, I switched to blogger beta, and now I can't get in, after several attempts, and tries, and emails to blogger and google. So Im back to using good ol' wordpress.

Hey Carol,

My Braves aren't doing so hot either! First year in 15 years that they won't win their division and they aren't even close to a wildcard spot! Oh well, what can you do! P.S. I'm glad your review went well and your Emblem of Love is coming along so pretty... I may have to get this one! :)

What lovely progress. I love the colors. I am also glad to hear your audit went well. We go through that every spring in our office when the grant people come through. My boss goes a bit off the deep end:)

As for baseball players, I am keeping anyone I find for the Orioles...they need all the help they can get:) The AL east is having a rough end to the summer aren't they.

Rava said...

Sharon said...

EOL is looking good! Glad everything went well with your review!

Jenna said...

EoL looks beautiful! Glad to hear that your records review went very smoothly. Sorry to hear that the Sox are having a really bad season. Every team has to have an off season now and again, though. At least it's due to injury and illness, not to poor teaming!
