Birds

Both Mike and I are fighting a virus here - have been for days, and for me it is causing tremendous back pain. But, I have still found ways to stitch. I put some time in on And A Forest Grew tonight - mostly stitched a whole bunch of birds. I could have gone on longer, but I was also very sidetracked today by a gift that I started, and am enjoying too much to put down!


I still have two more pieces of fabric available for sale - let me know if you want them!
On the left: Picture This Plus Monet 28 ct lugana, 18" x 27", $18.50
On the right: Enchanted Fabrics Sorbet 32 ct belfast linen, 18" x 27", $20

Stitched on today: Started a gift, and And A Forest Grew

I"m sorry to here that both you and Mike are sick. I hope you both feel better soon

Oohh both of your fabrics are so pretty. I'm going to have to pass this time. I'm doing a weed out of some stash I don't want any more so till that's done no more is coming in.

We're all loaded with illness here too so you have my sympathy. It's no fun.

I'm so loving seeing the progress. I can't justify any more new projects just now, (well, really I can't ever, lol. But just now it's a definite no-no) so I'm living vicariously and watching yours :)

Be well soon.

And a forest grew is looking fantastic!

It's high time we got some nice, balmy weather, so everyone would just feel better. I'm sorry to hear you and Mike have succumbed too! Still very good progress on your forest!

Wendy said...

Sorry to hear you and hubby are not well. Its awful how these viruses make the rounds. But its a good thing that you can at least enjoy a little stitching. I hope you feel better soon!

Cathy said...

And a Forest Grew keeps getting better and better! What a great design.

Hope you and Mike are feeling better. The flu virus has been going around here in MN. It's been horribly cold too; we're finally going to start warming up this week.

I am so sorry to hear that you and Mike are feeling badly! Jerry and I are getting over a very long cold plus I think I had a throat infection, but it is gone now! This is such a bad time of year for viruses! Take care to get well and your stitching is really beautiful! You amaze me that you can even stitch at all feeling that way! Debby :)

Big hugs! I am so sorry to hear that you are both sick! Here's hoping for a speedy recovery. Glad you were able to get some stitching in anyway. AAFG is just getting prettier and prettier. Love the birds!
