I can't show the PIF I am working on, but here is a bit more of Katrina's neighborhood... I still have a bit to do on the right side and upper part of her block, but it is coming along now...
Good news for me! I found a lovely ebay friend who has plenty of the Kreinik I need to finish Halloween Fairy, so I ordered some tonight and given her usual amazing service, it should be here soon and my fairy will be done. And the Ott-Lite... it was not the ballast. DH put a voltage meter to it and it appears to be the circuit board at the switch, and we cannot find one of those anywhere. He ordered me a new one, slightly different. Hopefully that will be here soon.
I have avoided talking about this, but I know I am way, way, way far behind in answering emails. One of my family members is terribly ill and facing a long recovery and rehab, and I am just a bit wrapped up in it right now and enjoying peace in my stitching. And the situation reminds me again of the fragility of life and I wish to tell you all once again how special my stitching friends are to me. This is the kindest community I have ever had the good fortune to know. Thank you :-) And don't worry about my family member, OK? With a bright attitude and strong faith, I do think this special person will recover well. I will try to get to emails over the weekend... and your blogs too! (Truth be told, I read a few today... yay)
