Finished Stitches

I've Been RAK'd!!!!

For those of you who don't know....RAK stands for random act of kindness. A very nice lady from the SanMan Board stitched a beautiful piece for breast cancer awareness. I loved it so much I sent her a message asking for the designer name so that I could purchase the pattern. She told me she had an extra and would sent it my way. To my surprise *happy dancin'* she sent me some fabby, hand dyed floss, brads, stickers, a button, AND the pattern!!

Today a dear friend and co-worker of mine is having surgery. She was involved in a really bad car accident and had to be air lifted to a local hospital with several injuries. She will have to wear a halo after surgery. This will be hard for her because she is such a "go getter" and never stays in one place too long. So....anyone reading this on my blog, please pray for her.

On another note, I got a new cross stitch pattern in the mail today. The nicest lady sent me a pattern and the floss to finish it with too!! How nice of her! I can't wait to start it. It's another one for breast cancer awareness.

That's all for now.

Imagine my surprise when I picked up my sheet to put in the washing machine and saw this little fella!! I gently picked up the sheet and took it outside to free him before my furbaby saw it!

Happy Friday everyone! I am off work today and had plans to do alot of housework, but now sitting here with a headache, I am rethinking that. I did manage to photograph two recent stitching finishes, so take a look!!

Happy Friday!

Today is Friday and I've only gotten about 2 more hours of stitching in since my last post. I am hoping to finish one of my current projects over the weekend and post a picture. I am currently working on about 4 projects, one of which is for a Christmas present. Gotta get back to work! Have a great day everyone!

Hi All,

Getting ready for another night shift. I like to try and stay up late the night before a night shift so that I can get plenty of sleep. My night shift is from 6:30pm to 6:30am. To help me stay awake I started Lizzie Kate's Peace Love and A Cure. Ironically, I participated in the Susan Komen Breast Cancer foundation walk yesterday. I raised $620.00 this year! Back to the stitching....I did about 2 hrs of stitching on the piece last nite. I am hoping that I can work on it a little tonite at work during the slow times. I should have a pic posted sometime this week. Take care all, and I will be chatting with you more later!
