The postman has been kind

Yesterday I came home to a wonderful box from Vonna!  It was late when I got home (side trip to the grocery store) and I was too tired to open it.  I sent Flying Monkeys to her for finishing and she did a bang up job.  I was tickled pink by the photos she sent me but they were nothing to the actual piece.  Kahuna was there when I opened the box tonight and he likes it too!

These are the pictures she took (her photography efforts are better than mine!):

I highly suggest you think of Vonna if you need some finishing.  I have been reluctant to stitch so many ornaments because of my poor finishing skills, but now Vonna better watch out, she may have let loose a monster!  😆

The next package I got arrived tonight.  I mentioned on February 14th that I had ordered some more stash.  It was originally requested in January but was never ordered.  I fell in love with Rosewood Manor’s Quaker Diamonds when Becky featured it on her blog as a giveaway.  I wasn’t crazy about the fibers though until I found out from Melissa and Margaret Bendig that they also came in 6 strand floss.  I did a little internet research and found both the pattern and the fibers on sale at Anita’s Little Stitches.  I’ve been reading this lady’s blog for awhile and took a chance placing my first order with her.  I did this over the long weekend and couldn’t be happier with the customer service.  The only reason I didn’t have it earlier was because Monday was a mail holiday.  Let me tell you the Valdani fibers are scrumptious!  This will be high up on my to-do list.  I also ordered LIttle House Needleworks’ Battle Hymn of the Republic to add to my American flag designs.

Work is crazy.  A new person started this past Monday and between helping her learn the ropes and trying to learn new ways to do things myself I feel like I’m running in circles.  Throw in the fact that I’m still sick (8 days now!) and I’m exhausted in the evenings when I get home. 

I got an email from the Fair yesterday telling me when entries were going to start being accepted and they’ve moved it up from May to March!  Eeeeek!  Looks like I’ll be doing a bit of exclusive stitching on Summer Queen to get her ready.

Jasper is 100% officially mine!  We went over to his foster mom’s Tuesday evening and retrieved all of his clothes (yes, he has clothes) and toys.  Poor baby had 2 toys.  You should have seen him when he unearthed his hedgehog.  He was a crazy man and didn’t want to share!  Harley is in love with one of his fleece ‘jammies’ and we’re going to be getting her one or two to wear.  My change in attitude toward him has made a huge difference in how I’m feeling about him.  He really is a sweetheart (I know I keep saying that).  He just came in for an ear scritch 🙂

Guess I’d better get off the computer and settle in for some Olympic stitching.  Ciao!
