quick update

Just a quickie so you all know I am still alive. I have been doing secret stitching so have nothing to show as yet. Exchanges are due to be sent soon so hopefully I'll have pics to show of the HOE Freebie exchange, Jayne's attic Needleroll exchange, SBEBB ABC Exchange. I am working on a little biscornu for the May Challenge on the Monthly challenging blog. Also the Summer House exchange on the SBEBB. Also need to think about doing a couple more biscornu for other exchanges I'm in. I am in the process of setting up a mini exchange with Tracy, Sally, myself and a friend of mine to do a biscornu exchange. My friend loves the idea of doing an exchange but lacks confidence as she is a new stitcher and needs a lot of time to complete something. So I have organised this little exchange between us for Sept/Oct time. So much secret stitching!

Hope everyone is well.

Hazel, Tell me what this monthly challenge blog is all about. I have never heard of it.

Sorry I have been so remiss in keeping in contact. I have had a few ups and downs since Christmas, but working through them. God has blessed me with a healing...albeit through surgery, but I am doing well. Will give details later in an e-mail. I managed to pull my back out in December before Christmas and am still dealing with it. I have not been sleeping in bed for all this time, sleeping in the recliner instead. It is not the best, but I am doing what I can to cope with it. Need some prayer on that account and trusting the Lord for better things. Rog has been an angel through some of these ups and downs I have had lately, he is a special treasure of a husband! You know, it would be good to do some regular e-mails I think....what do you think? Big hugs from a friend who prays, and I will be doing some of that for you my dear. Keep the chin up and enjoy each day for the good things, don't fuss over the small stuff, and take a few praise breaks -- it does help :-) God bless and keep you ....until we chat more....

Good to hear from you, Hazel!

So very glad to hear from you. Glad that things are well with you. Hope the children are doing well too! Secret stitching is fun but with no pictures it is hard to post isn't it.

Stephanie said...

Good to hear things are good with you - even if you are doing lots of secret stitching. I can sympathise! I'm thinking of toning down the exchanges so I can finish some of the bigger pieces I'm stitching - never seem to get much done on them, LOL! (Wait, there's an echo, I'm sure I've said this to myself before!!!)

I hope you have fun with all of your little projects. You will be busy.
I have some secret stitching that I'm doing as well and it is hard to post.
I look forward to seeing some photos.
Take care.

It does sound like you've been busy. I think one of the hardest things on exchange/secret stitching is not being able to post the finishes until after the individual receives them. It is so hard to wait when you want to post the finish. Good luck with setting up the new exchange, I think it's great you're doing a smaller one to accomodate your friend. I also am a slow stitcher and out of concern on not finishing on time is why I've not particpated in exchanges.
