Thank You

I have to say thank you to two lovely ladies. The first is to Kathy(Kay) that sent me this lovely fabric postcard as part of an exchange on Stitchin Fingers. It looks so bright and cheerful displayed in my front room, just what I have needed this week. The other thank you is to Terry (http://terrytreasures.blogspot.com/) who sent me a very full box of aida, linen and waste canvas.
Amongst the treasures was this piece of bordered aida. I just have to find the perfect design to go in the middle.
I think I already have an idea for these pieces, time will tell.

The good thing is, there were two pieces big enough for the round robin and the mail art envelope I need to start. The fact I haven't been able to get out to do shopping doesn't matter anymore.
Words can't even begin to describe how grateful I am that Terry considered sending this to me. Over the next few months, I hope she sees it being put to good use.
I haven't done anything on the stitching or knitting front this week, I have been quite poorly. Much to the boys delight, I had no voice yesterday but to their bitter disappointment, it has come back today. I am now beginning to feel more human, so I am hoping to pick up a needle of some sort over the next couple of days.
