I took some time this morning and finished my Sweetheart Tree Round Robin. I decided to put a paillette with a bead between the names and finish it as a bell pull. It took several phone calls to my fellow stitcher, Barb, as I could not remember how we finished the Celtic Banner. With her aid and encouragement it is done. Here is the finished product.
After you stop chuckling about some 55 year old chubby woman hopping around grinning from ear to ear on her very sore foot (plantar fasciiatis), you can read on. I received the most wonderful birthday gift in the mail yesterday. I was honored to receive one of Carol's wonderful stitched pieces in the mail today. Here is the lovely scissors fob she stitched for me. Thank you Carol!
The rest of the day I spent cranky and out of sorts. I am a basket case when it comes to the dentist. I had to go today and get 5 little pinpoint fillings. I was a mess and it put me off my game most of the day. Dear Beatrice came over, put a fresh color on my hair and generally dealt with my less than stellar self. I did manage to find my pattern, gather my threads and put the first few stitches in Annemarie's Neighborhood Round Robin piece. It is not ready for showing yet.
