A Stitchery Finish

I feel like I've been away for ever! I know it has been a few days and not much exciting has been going. I had to call the doctor for another antibiotic to get rid of this infection I've had. He called me in a Z-Pak. Well, whatever it is I don't like it very well. OK it doesn't like me very well. I can't decide what's worse... being sick OR the side effects of it. UGH!!!! Yesterday was my last day of it and I'm feeling a bit better, but I still have a horrible cough.

Sick or not I got some things done. For those of you who aren't friends with me on Facebook, I started a Christmas stitchery on the first day of fall. LOL I know really??? The mood struck so I ran with it. So, basically, this took up most of the weekend trying to get it done so I didn't do much else. The pattern is done for this stitchery with the exception of the cover page. I think I will stain it again to get it a little darker, frame it, and take pictures. I'm hoping to have this pattern out very soon.

I did manage to get all 3 borders on my daughter's quilt too. I just need batting and a backing fabric so that I can finish it. I have already started thinking about my next quilt project. However, I need to concentrate on a few more fall goodies for the booth and then start Christmas stuff. I know I do this to myself all the time. I always get a late start with the upcoming holidays then feel in a rush to get them finished. I hate when I do this to myself. LOL. Anyway, the borders... I couldn't take the quilt outside to take a photo because the grass is all wet. I will try later and post a picture of the entire thing tomorrow.

I know this short and sweet, but I really need to do something today other than hang out in my pajamas drinking coffee today. I will try to be back tomorrow with some interesting things I worked on today.

Hi Mary!
Wonderful stitchery-just wish I had the patience to work on something that time consuming.;-)
Hope you continue to feel better, but take it slow or it will continue to hang on.
Love that quilt you made for your daughter.
Take care and rest up.

Love the new stitchery Mary!! And that quilt is awesome....what a treasure for your daughter. I'm amazed at how those colors works so well together. Take care and get better - Z-Paks are my best friend - but usually end up doing two of them....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
