Sunshine & Exchanges Received

The sun is shining today but, it is quite windy. I have the day off and am anxious to work on finishing up my Altoid Tin so I can get it in the mail tomorrow. Also I am stitching another biscornu and I am getting a good start on "Peppermint Twist" by Blue Ribbon.

Just got back from Lexington. I had to run some papers over to the Doctors to be filled out.
Every year at open enrollment on our insurance at work we get a wellness paper to be filled out by our doctor. There are 4 things on it and we get $500 taken off our deductible for each one we pass.

Tobacco Use
Blood Pressure
Body Mass Index.

So far I have been passing all 4.

Shay has received her Easter Ornament that I stitched for her. I saw this cute chick on someone's blog and it looked like so much fun that I decide to stitch it for Shay.

"Spring Chick" by Waxing Moon. I dyed some 28 ct. Jobelan and chose a pretty pink color.
I used DMC Floss in the designated colors and made some twisted cord with DMC 725.
The green bow matches the bright green polka dot fabric that I used for backing.
I thought I had taken more pics but, this is the only one I found. I am happy that Shay likes it as I really enjoyed stitching her up.

I haven't heard from Leeanne, but I am pretty sure she has received the biscornu I stitched for her. She has been busy getting ready to move and I know how that is. lol. Please Pass the Biscornu 2010

"Hearts & Beads"
28 ct. Jobelan
CC- Cottage Garden

So after I tried to post this once and it didn't publish or save, I am trying again.

Love the pinkeep, what a beautiful colour you dyed the fabric. The biscornu is very nice too.

Hope you passed all 4 things again this time.

I know I could pass one, but thinking about it I wonder about the other 3! Good thing I've been dieting lately; now to get motivated on the exercise!

I LOVE both of these; the fabric you chose for that pin keepe is so sweet, and i don't think I've seen that CC used before; just lovely for spring! :)

What cute exchange pieces! Love the colors in your biscornu.

Those are both lovely. The spring chick would make anyone smile and the biscornu looks so romantic and delicate.
