Turtle Needlebook

I fell in love with this needlebook the first time I laid eyes on it..It's by Olde Colonial Designs and was a very enjoyable project even with all the over one stitches.I changed 2 things I didn't add the bird charm to the front and I did the flowers on the back same as the front..I was a little worried about the finishing but it turned out to be a breeze and I am so proud of my accomplishment..

True Virtue Finished

This is such a lovely sampler.Thanks to Joanie for suggesting we stitch this as a sal.In the afternoon of July 4th I put my last stitches in.
Now I am off to go outside and sit in the warm sunshine. Hope you all are having a great weekend. Can someone tell me why my fabric looks so crummy when it is clicked on..What am I doing wrong.

Good to be back

A lot has been going on with me. First my monitor blew up then I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer and had to have a complete hysterectomy.My cancer was in the early stages and none was found in my lymph nodes so no chemo.My doctor did a procedure called da Vinci Hysterectomy for early stages of gynecologic cancer.Instead of having a big scar I had 5 tiny openings which healed quicker with less pain and blood loss.If you would like to read more about it here is the site www.daVinciHysterectomy.com My biggest complaint was not being able to lift anything over 5lbs for 7 weeks.Being a lady of leisure got old fast for this girl.I did get a lot of stitching done with no computer and will post a picture later of True Virtue finished.
