I've been RAK'd!! THANKS!!!

So I had a couple birthday cards to mail and hear the postman coming, so I ran out to greet him. I was joking with him that he's only been bringing medical insurance stuff, bills and political B.S. and nothing fun lately...and then he said it was my lucky day - he handed me a box.

So I opened it and found this:

Upon further opening - I had a very nice note from Jennifer ( and also this:

I have been searching and searching for a flower frog to hold my scissors...I love it and can't wait to find a base - easier than the frog search, as I have a few things on hand I will try it out in or take a trip to the Salvation Army - they always have lots of things that will work. THANKS, Jennifer - such a sweet gift - and you really made my day! If you haven't checked out her blog, check her out - beautiful stitching and lots of pretty vacation pictures lately. I will definately "pay it forward", Jennifer!!
I had a couple BBD patterns I want to use for a focus group project for my Kindred Spirits guild and since we love to eat at the Mexican restaurant in front of my LNS and it's too hot to cook and I'm too lazy today - I picked up these two linens, one WDW I was missing to start and also a pattern I had ordered which had arrived this week. And then off for a chicken fiesta salad!

When I arrived home, after finishing the bills and medical b.s., I decided to pull the fibers - don't you just hate when it's on your list of fibers you own, you know you have it; you go to "kit" it up and it's with some other project at the moment and you don't know which one? Or are you a "one project at a time" stitcher? I used to be - not any more. I don't have any idea how many WIP's I have and I don't want to know...I love having flexibility and have some hard things to do, some easy stitching and some in between.
So I am to stitch tonight, stitched last night while watching back episodes of Deadliest Catch from this season - some of them I missed...such a sad season! Tomorrow I hope to hang out in my sewing studio and work on various projects - also not a one project gal there either...too many things, too little time.
Should be an okay week though - off next Friday to peruse the Ann Arbor Art Fair - it's been years since my hubby and I went and checked out all the very cool things. We're doing that and having lunch - been awhile since we had a "date". Then it will be the weekend again. Now, if I can just figure out a way to cool myself down I'd have it made - whew it's been too hot! Have a great week all! Thanks again Jennifer - I love it! As soon as I get a base situated and scissors resting comfortably, I will take a pic and post.
Stitch happy,


  1. That's so great about the flower frog! So sweet of Jennifer. Love the linen you got too. I'm sort of a one at a timer, but that doesn't mean I don't have my fibers scattered among projects. lol! So I know what you're talking about!

  2. You were right, there was a frog in your future! I'm glad you like it. I hope you are able to find a real nice bottom to hold it. Enjoy!

  3. I love the fact that you were RAK'd with a frog~~~ I am still trying to "catch" one!! That was so generous of Jennifer~~~ Enjoy, Faye

  4. Happy Birthday late Sherry! I didn't know it was coming up! Excellent gift with the frog - you should have no trouble finding a bowl for it! And I've run into the same problem with kitting things up or having WIPs and not being able to find everything for a new project. It's frustrating.

  5. Oh, yay!!! You got a frog! :) That was so nice of Jennifer to send that to you. You deserve it g'friend!

    I hope you enjoyed your date with the DH!

    Have a great week!

  6. What a nice RAK! And so sweet of Jennifer! I'm searching for one, also!

    I have lots of WIPs right now, but then I usually do. I guess I enjoy the variety.

  7. The missing fiber thing happens to me all the time since I have so many WIPs and projects waiting patiently in line. Hope you have a good time at the fair!

  8. Sorry to reply to you here Sherry, but your e-mail address isn't attached to your blogger comment and I can't find one here, so sorry!
    Anyway...I have a tutorial that tells you exactly how to do the ornaments, as I have been doing them. If you go to my blog, click on the "My Tutorial Blog" and it will take you to it. If you cannot find that, then please e-mail me, my e-mail address is attached to my comment and also in the sidebar of my blog.
    Thank you for the visit!
