happy Tuesday! winners, & back to stitching

from my last post,
"the yellow ones don't stop"
I had two folks answer my question before the cutoff time:
"ELF" was the answer,
so instead of just drawing one person as the winner
I'm sending both of them some quilt-y somethings!
Congrats, Terri and Cheryl!!!
I'm an ELF, the movie, fan,
and yes, I know it's silly/stupid/funny
but it makes me smile.
While I was in New York City a couple of weeks ago,
the movie scene came to mind:
Buddy the elf: "the yellow ones don't stop!"
And that made me smile!
Then I had a doorman ask me what I was smiling about,
and that made me smile more!!!
And, yes, I still am fighting FLU York;
I'm happy to report, I'm on the mend-FINALLY!
(thanks to those who've asked about my well-being)
It's been a doosey!
For fourteen days now I've felt,
like I have the flu.
(by the way:  if you feel like you have the flu, stay home!!!
My doc said this flu is contagious for 10 to 14 days!!!
and yes, I know that staying home for 2 weeks is boring,
but there are immune compromised people out there
who can't afford to contract this)
Sorry, down off the box now...
Until yesterday, I didn't even stitch a single stitch!!!
Neither have I cooked! 
Now I know I was sick! -
no stitching & no cooking for two weeks!!!
Not like me.  Not like me at all.
Yesterday I felt a little more energetic,
so I grabbed my
A Gardener's Alphabet stitchery bag.
I finished the last few stitches on a few blocks... 
"Wx"-winter: just needed some berries
"Tz"-trellis: finished the zinnias' petals and french-knot centers

"Uv"-violets: needed the flowers stitched
"Y"-yarrow: stitched the whole thing! (it's a small block!)
Now, I know they all need to be pressed,  
and that will come, eventually.
I'm just glad to say I'm getting back to some stitching!!
I may even cook something -
maybe tomorrow :)


  1. Thanks so much! And I'm glad you're feeling better! :0)

  2. Such a beautiful alphabet stitchery. You are doing a nice job with it. I love it!

  3. Glad you are feeling a little better and back to hand stitching. Somehow a needle in the hand of a quilter/stitcher works like magic for the soul. Don't tell anyone, but I'm an Elf fan also.

  4. Cute Stitchery. Thanks for the win. Glad you are finally feeling better.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
