Greetings from the home of the germs....

My husband and I have spent the past 10 days coughing and blowing noses. After antibiotics didn't work, the doctor has decided that since so much of this sinus/bronchitis like stuff is going around that it is viral and has to run its course. He put us both on prednisone and said if it wasn't better in two weeks to come back. Two Weeks!!!! I don't have time for this. I was supposed to spend a long stitchy weekend at Jan's and had to cancel and, boy, was I bummed about that.
I haven't been doing much stitching but do have a few pieces to share. I finished LHN's Autumn Sampler that has been my Saturday night piece for a while.
I managed to stitch and finish into pin pillows two of La D Da's T'is Green from the JCS preview issue and another little freebie  piece from Aurelle's blog.
I finally got to work on doing the finishing on some of the ornaments I stitched for the grandkids. I've got five of them finished, so have two more to do. I think I need to get a fancy blade for my rotary cutter because it's too hard to cut straight with pinking shears.
Last fall I stitched JBW's A Very Merry Autumn but never got around to finishing it. I found some nice fall fat quarters at JoAnns and made it into a little pillow.

Thanks for all of your comments.
Until next time Happy Stitching!
Kathy

I hope that you feel better soon. My daugher had that and it took forever to clear up! All your ornaments looks wonderful.

You have to know how bummed I was, that you couldn't come! Hope you feel much better each and every day and it doesn't last another two weeks, egads!!!

Nice stitching and finishing, Kathy! I always love getting to see the parade of ornaments that you do for your grands. What a treasure for them! I hope you and your DH are feeling better soon. I always hate to hear "oh, it's a virus" from the doctor, since that means no meds. :P
