Can you believe it? With everything that's been going on around here lately I actually managed to finish stitching my French Inspired Heart. As for the finishing, well that remains to be seen. I haven't found a fabric that I like for the finishing yet so more than likely it will not be seen on display until next Valentine's Day! Other than this small finish I really don't have much stitching progress to report. I'm still plugging away on Cirque, stitching the final page now. I really haven't had much time for stitching this past week because we had some good friends visiting since last Friday. They've returned home now after a fun-filled weekend. Good friends, good times and good food is always a great pick-me-up.
I did receive a package in the mail today with an order from Stitching Bits and Bobs. When I place an order with them I make sure it's not one I'm in a hurry for. After all they're not exactly known for prompt mailings. However the sale was a good one and I wasn't in any particular hurry for this bunch. I had almost forgotton about the order though and was pleasantly surprised when I picked up my mail today. I've seen so many lovely patterns on various blogs of which the designer was Homespun Elegance so I decided to add a few of these lovelies to my stash. As you can see they are all ornament patterns which at some point in time will be stitched and addded to my growing collection. I just loved the look
of Sandra Sullivan's designs especially her snowmen. I know that there are several others out there thay I may want to add to the collection in the future.
I received the nicest card last Friday from the vet who looked after Finnigan during his last bit of time with us. It was handwritten, not a form letter, telling me how compassionate I was to let him go in peace. I thought it was lovely especially since this was the first time I'd ever dealt with this vet and I've yet to hear from my regular one. Not a word ... in fact my regular vet never ever returned my call to her even though I left specific details of what was happening. I think in light of this that I may just use the new vet in Ottawa in the future even if it is a bit farther to drive. At least I know she cares.
Not much else to report this week. Although I continue to have very little time for posting and commenting, I continue to enjoy reading all of your posts. They make my day!
I hope you all enjoy Valentine's Day with someone special in your life. Sweet stitching!!
