It has been a while since my last post not because nothing is happening in my life but because I'm falling apart... First was my thumb (still sore but manageable and I can stitch a little!), now it is my shoulder. For over a month it is bothering me and making my life difficult. And to make things worse last Saturday I flew from the porch to the driveway, like a bomb... I was lying on the ground and I had no idea: should I laugh or cry? In my mind I saw my body falling dawn in the slow motion and that made me laugh but the added pain wanted me to cry... thank goodness no broken limbs, just a few bruises and scratches
And that's not all; I also had a flat tire. Part of Alaska Highway is under construction (and there are no other roads) that will take me to work and somehow a very sharp stone get into my brand new tire:
Do you see it?
And that is inside the tire, not fixable - I got a brand new tire and for a first time I appreciated the road hazard insurance!
Now I will quit winning and get to an awesome stuff.
I received the most beautiful mail art from my stitching buddy, our lovely Meari. Normally I wouldn't show addresses but she did such amazing job and picked a very lovely alphabet so I do not mind if you see mine
and the back
I wasn't going to open this gorgeous envelope until Meari receives mine, but since I was so hurt and so beat-up, ... I opened it... and, oh my!, so many goodies were inside:
a lovely chart that I decided to stitch and make a broach or a name tag for my stitching retreat in September
a whole bunch of teas that still waiting for me to try them
a lovely floss that for sure it will get used
and a package of flower seeds that will be planted in the spring. There also was a postcard (didn't take a picture, darn it!) with a little history facts. Thank you so much Meari, you've made my day! I was in such happy mood that I stitched some... I've started a new project though...
Maybe this weekend I will get back to my Guardian Angel.
