A Couple of Exchanges & Another Tumble

First off let me say I am a total klutz. I have taken another tumble
This time it was down the steps on the front porch. Yesterday I was sceduled to go to work on the day shift. I had to leave home at 3:30 am.

I haven't gone to work on this shift in almost 2 years.
Anyhoo... we have a yard light and a porch light but still doesn't light up the steps too well. I was going slow and leading off with my right foot going one step at a time (only 4 steps) and thought I was at the bottom.

Next thing I knew I landed on my right knee on the sidewalk and ended up in the flower bed.
I got up and drove the 25 miles to work. I didn't feel too bad but my knee had started stinging and I was worried I had dirt all over my pants. I made my 8 hour shift but everytime I bent over I had excrutiating pains in my chest. I feel better today just stiff and sore.

I called off work today and am lying around doing some stitching and resting. I don't go back till Monday so hopefully I will be much better.

I have finished a couple of Exchanges. The first one is another Biscornu that I made for Mayte.

Weeks Dye Works Floss
I wanted to stitch something pink, so I dyed a piece of fabric and chose some floss. I wasn't too sure that the design would show up, but once I got it put together I think it turned out okay. I added some white beads around the edges so it wouldn't look so plain.

I am totally satisfied  with how it turned out and Mayte has received it and says she likes it. So now I am stitching one more biscornu and then I am finished with this exchange. I have received some lovely biscornus from the ladies that participated and really love them all. I have them displayed in a basket.

The next Exchange is a pinkeep. I don't want to reveal who it is for yet because I haven't heard whether it has arrived or not. I mailed it on October 4th and it has a ways to go around the world. I hope it makes it.

That's all folks. I have stitched another pumpkin ornament and am in the process of finishing it. I am thinking of using some of the ruched ribbon on it and I am finishing up stitching a breast cancer design. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Until later, may the stitch be with you,

Ouch! I hope the pain isn't to bad today. Good reason to sit and stitch all day.
