Book of Stitches and Crystal tree

Page 3 of Little Book of Stitches is coming along nicely. I was asked if it is from "Gift of Stitching". It is indeed - August 2007. I am really enjoying this project and the peacock thread is working up nicely.

This is not the greatest photo of Crystal Tree but we have progress. I ended up tearing out all the previous stitching and starting again. This is on 32 count Ice Blue Lugana and will be lovely when it is done. I have started at the top and it seems to be going better. I find it easier to keep track and I am trying not to wander too far with the confetti stitches. I have discovered that I cannot stitch this one with distractions though. I took it with my yesterday to my last Thursday stitching group and had to counter stitch everything I had done! It was wonderful to see my stitching friends again and sad to say goodbye to them all for the next few months. I wish you could meet them. They are such a wonderful group - so encouraging, so funny, so supportive and such great buddies. Take care everyone

On the cold front - things are progressing slowly. I had to see my doctor on Monday and I have developed bronchitis and a lung infection. I now have antibiotics, an bronchodilator and some narcotic cough medicine to get me through this. The cough medicine knocks me on my keister so I try not to take it unless I am desperate. The doctor has assured me that I should be on the upswing in the next few days. We have had to cancel our plans for the next several days and are now unsure of our date to cross into the U.S. I will still start Paradigm on the scheduled date.
