Rainbow Exchange Received





I participated in the Rainbow Exchange on the Cross Stitch Crazy board and received, from Amber, a package filled with fantastic and much needed items...naturally in an array of colors!


She spoiled me, and I can not thank her enough. The selection of specialty floss is just perfect ~ as are the array of Mill Hill Beads and needles! I know already that I will be using the Ice Crystal Lugana for a holiday project, it's so pretty. The floss holder and needle threader will certainly come in handy (gone are the days when I could thread the needle in one shot). I travel 4 hours to VT almost every weekend, having the Extend-A-Lamp will be perfect for those trips when I am not the driver! In addition Amber sent a decorative wall plaque, coaster and "rainbow" floral headband! What a wonderful surprise, and so very thoughtful of you!

Thank you again for making this such an enjoyable exchange!


Poison Ivy Update

Thanks for your concern over my dreadful Poison Ivy. I though I would update you on the my situation:
I arrived in Vermont last Friday for the summer and on Saturday AM found myself in the Emergency room. Great way to start the summer! I woke with a swolen face and one eye that was almost closed (very attractive!). Well, after 1.5 hours (that was with no wait time in the ER), and an IV with 3 meds I was sent on my way with more medicine! I seem to be recovering however I do still have the nasty stuff and can not wait to be free of it!!!
Until next time....


Until next time....

I was wondering about that Poison Ivy, how awful! I’ve been fortunate to never have been in contact with it. My husband has, and it does awful things. I hope you are getting it over it soon!! Your exchange is adorable :D

Barbara said...

That's a great exchange you received. You'll have lots of fun with those goodies!

What a great package to receive! Looks like lots of goodies to stimulate more stitching. Glad to hear that the poison ivy is better. Luckily, we did not have a similar incident on our camping trip.
