Halloween exchange received

Chris sent a beautiful Just Nan piece for the HoE Halloween exchange, plus a whole bunch of goodies. The piece is Fraidy Frog from the Sept./Oct. issue of Just Cross Stitch. She finished it as a really cute tin and did an excellent job with it. It's one I probably would have stitched for myself eventually, and now I don't have to!

She also sent the chart and a frame for Moon Riders. I've admired this chart for a while. She also sent some orange TicTacs, but they inexplicably disappeared. They are my favorite, so they didn't last long. They remind me of baby aspirin from when I was a kid. Yes, I liked them!

Not much stitching going on lately, which is so unusual for me. I pulled out Skeleton Crew and hope to put in a few stitches. I noticed the fabric's gotten warped, undoubtedly from my Qsnaps last time I worked on it. The Wichelt fabric is so loosely woven that the strands move around a lot. Bleh. I hope I can get the fabric back into shape. It's not motivating me to stitch.

Sick, sick, and more sick: We've all had a few rounds of illnesses lately. The latest one is Logan's pink eye, which had been going around daycare. The drops the doctor gave him yesterday have really helped. I'm hoping the rest of us don't get it.

What a lovely exchange! Hehehe and yes I was the same when an exchange sent me those Rocket candies... I had already started on them even before taking photos!

Although not good to hear you are sick; seems like this year hasn't been that lucky for you as far as health is concerned :(
*HUGS* take care of yourself!

What a great exchange to receive Michelle!

So sorry to hear you've all been having bouts of illness lately. It seems like there's always something going around at your house. What a drag! I hope Logan is feeling better soon.

I don't really care for frogs, but I've seen that design at least 3 times and every time I love it. I guess it's a sign I need to stitch it.

Pink eye. Ick. I never had it in my life until my ds went to daycare. Toddlers, filthy animals!! lol Remember to wash his pillowcase and use a fresh towel & wash cloth for at least 3 days.
