Time for a tiny update!

Eek from Shepherd's Bush

Thank you all for your lovely comments on St Basil's. I appreciate them so much! I don't get to share my stitching with many people around here so it's so much fun to get feedback from fellow stitchers.

My camera is somewhere in the house, don't really know where though so I just scanned this little bag from Shepherd's Bush. My husband is putting the finishing touches on our home theatre (yeah) and is taking a lot of pictures to share on his groups at the moment. So I do find the camera in surprising places at the moment. The tool bag, under some Cd's and tonight not at all. Sorry for the awful scan but at least there's some proof that I have been stitching.

I have also desperately been stitching on my Gameboard Sampler from Drawn Thread. I really want to finish it up soon so I can give some more attention to the Village of Hawk Run Hollow SAL that I just joined. It is going to be so much fun but I usually work better when I have one huge project on the go. Just 14 more squares to do on the Gameboard so I should be done in a weeks time (I hope).

Squazi nominated me for the You make me smile award! Thank you so much, that really cheered me up. I really have to say that I can't pick only 10 people that make me smile, I really feel that every stitching blogger have made me smile in some way over the years. So I guess that I'm passing this on to all of you!

Sorry that I have been so quite lately. I have been in a really weird mood lately and sometimes when you don't have anything nice to say it's better to sit in corner and wait it out!

My SIL is going to undergo some major surgery tomorrow. She has a tumor in her forehead and they have to go in and remove it. It's pretty awful, she's just 40 years old and have 2 small kids.

The good thing is that she went in for a full check up due to family health history and that's when they found the tumor. Usually when the symptoms for this shows up it's to late so she (and us who love her) are really blessed that they found it early.

Kasja, my hopes are with your SIL for a fully successful surgery tomorrow, and a full & uncomplicated recovery.

Your SB Halloween stitching is adorable - thanks for sharing it even though you couldn't find a camera! ;)

As for sitting in a corner and waiting till you have something nice to say ... I can relate. Take care, okay?!

Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog. I hope your SIL's surgery went ok. I can quite relate to sitting in the corner as thats how I feel at the moment. Unfortunately my Mum passed away last Thursday. I have been in Sydney all last week and have only come home last night.

Your bag is lovely and quite appropriate for Halloween. I usually only stitch on one large piece at a time too.

Dear Kajsa, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family about your SILs surgery. It's a difficult thing. I can imagine you have been taking some time to be with yourself to gather some inner strength for this! Love your little EEK! Come back and talk when you feel like it.. Your SAL should be fun.

Lana said...

I hope your SIL's surgery went well, and i hope she recovers quickly. Also glad you have been able to find time to stitch lately too, that is always great! I have family coming next week for a visit, so I have been having stitching marathons this week, knowing that next week...very little stitching will happen!

Happy stitching!

Shari said...

your finish it cute Kajsa, but I am most concerned for your SIL. I pray the surgery went well for her. How very great that they found it early & could take care of it.
