I'm back with pictures. :o)

First, I'm sorry guys to have left you hanging for this long, my DH was kind enough to not pay our phone/internet bill and we were turned off and that's how I found out he wasn't paying it. So now I am taking charge and paying myself each month. Anyway on to updates

On the stitchy front:

I received a PIF gift (her name escapes me right now) I was thrilled to see this, its awesome, thank you!:

Also I was part of a mystery exchange, here's what I sent since she has now received it:

And here's what I received in return from Iseabail, its a covered tape measure, beautiful BTW: And finally I have been working on the Peacock stitching chair. Here's some pics of the WIP:

This is the arm bands and the front of the drawer, theres a tassel that goes in the middle of the initials and the year. The bands took me 2 days to get done as I had to be sure they were opposite so when put together they would match.

Here is the scissor fob, it took me a few days too because for some reason I had to keep frogging the border around the year. I was spacey or something those days.

And here is the front of the chair, its not finished but will be today.

Carolyn: I'm sorry if it seems I am going fast on this one, I did receive your email and I believe I sent you one back. I have to finish this by the 15th to get it out in the mail so my mom will receive it in time for her bday on the 22nd. I plan to stitch a second one for me so keep going on yours please.

Also: I sent Dawn a belated bday gift and forgot to post pictures after she recieved it so here they are:

And on the bday/xmas club my partner Veronica's bday was April 13th, the day for my DH's bday and here is what I sent to her:

She's learning to knit and all and only had one set of needles so I bought her another 3 sets, plus some stitch markers, yarn, floss, a mix of teas, aida fabric and a card. I'm glad she liked it all. :o)

On the other side: About a week ago: My DH went to Sweinfurt for some training for 10 days and he twisted his ankle badly He is on crutches. He tripped stepping out of a 5 ton vehicle, twisting the same ankle that last year in July I had broke. LOL I had to laugh when he called and told me. He has to be on crutches for this week and then light walking for next week and then he should be fine.
My biological father came into town too, he was contracting in Iraq and took time off and got here May 1st. Its been nice since the last time we saw each other was 3 years ago. Though some things about him are driving me crazy, like his obsession with my kitchen, there can never be one dish in the ink or he washes it and then I get lectured on why I should have a strainer for the dishes next to my sink. I have a dishwasher but he won't really use it. There are some other things too but I don't want to spend this post complaining about him.

Also my DH's mother and stepfather arrived on April 19th and left May 4th. We met them at the airport and all and spent the day with them. But the DH left the next day to Sweinfurt, so they refused to visit or even call while he was gone. When the DH asked them when he returned they said I could have called them but they knew my phone wasn't working. I could only receive phone calls. I was so mad, again this woman is blaming her lack of whatever on me. You know they only spoke to my girls once in 15 months and that was a week before they arrived and also because I made my DH hand the phone to the girls.
Anyway I guess thats about it. I will be spending time in the next few days catching up and commenting on all of your blogs.
Oh! Before I forget I sent out postcards to everyone who sent me there snail mail for our post card exchange. Whitcalla I received yours. Malaysia looks beautiful, I'm now considering my vacation for there next year. :o)

Hello Heidi and welcome back! I wondered too where you dissapeared! You´ve received wonderful gifts! I´ve also bought the Peacock stitching chair but hasn´t started on it yet. Your choices of colours looks nice. Have a nice day and remember to check your post, a parcel with something nice ( hopefully you think so) is on its way!

Wonderful exchange pieces, and the chair will be lovely. The chair is so unusual, it has been fun watching the different people who have been working on it. Sorry to hear about your DH's ankle, hopefully it heals quickly.
