Valentine exchange received

Look what I got from Outi! She designed it herself. I never connected her to Periphaeria Designs, but that's her! Her stitches are so nicely railroaded, and the biscornu is stuffed so firmly. Excellent work on her part.

I love the reds of the floss and ribbon. I need to figure out what to stitch with them. She also sent two terra cotta hearts, but the post office crushed them to shards. Typical.

I finished my Bountiful Acorns needleroll, and I'll post pics as soon as I get the ribbon my mom is sending me. I wound up ordering the other Sweetheart Tree needlerolls I could find. I'm addicted to needlerolls at the moment. I also took out HAED's Eternal Promise and put a few stitched into it.

The crud: I've come down with a sinus infection, so I'm in bed for the most part. At least I had Robin Hobb's book Forest Mage to read. I have a few other books to read, fortunately. Poor Matt. I of course got sick on double-xp weekend on City of Heroes (a computer game we play). I know he really wanted to play this weekend, but he didn't complain when he had to take care of both me and the boy. At least I found out it isn't strepp. So far Logan doesn't have it. I'm thinking I caught it at the doctor's office when I brought him for shots last week. Argh. I haven't really gone anywhere else. Just when I was trying to build up some sick leave...

Poor thing! Hope you feel better soon. When my ds was little I caught everything he caught. Then he stopped catching so much, he was just bringing them home for me to catch.

I was afraid of that. Actually I realised it after I had sent them to you than they will travel with USPS, which is known to break things. :( (I am too used to the local postal service which is annoyingly expensive, but never breaks stuff.)

At least the biscornu was intact!

I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the exchange, I hope it made the sinus infection a bit easier to tolerate for at least a minute or two. :)

P.S. Isn't it curious how small the world of stitching actually is? ;)

Michelle, hope you are feeling a little bit better by now. Love the exchange from Outi. It's very striking isn't it?
