Slow down...I wanna get off!!

a cheerful pot of flowers!

My life has been like a runaway train lately!
The entire month of August and September were almost entirely given over to the wedding. With my daughter in school, working and interning she didn't have much time for wedding preparations! And on top of that we had to be all crafty and make everything ourselves...um a little like re-inventing the wheel.

THEN...
the minute the wedding was over I got sick! 
And started suffering from insomnia!!

WOW!
A double whammy!

Yesterday was the firsy day I began to feel like a human again!
LOL!
While I was sick I picked up my cross stitch, for the first time in 
OVER A YEAR!
Which is completely and totally inexcusable, since I have a serial sampler design that is not even finished. :(
I'm so ashamed! Bad! Bad designer!

But I DID pick it up again with renewed vigor for getting it finished!
It is the very last installment of the 
Quilty Newighborhood Sampler

Here is the sampler so far:
See!  Almost done! Last chart for this series. So, its coming! Its on its way. It just took a 2 week bout of the nastiest virus I have had in a long time to get me back to it!
:)

What a wonderful sampler, it's gorgeous! I once did lots of CCS but since I became a quilter it took a back seat and I rarely do it anymore, but still love it. I hope your sickness is gone for good and you feel all better now and stay that way.

Glad you're feeling better. Sick is not fun.

Thank you Connie! I love to quilt too!! I really suffer from craft ADD, I am always flitting from one thing to another. The problem is...I love it all!!

Thank you Jean(ie), I hope this is it, just a lingering cough right now. This virus was a full 2 weeker! Blah!

Oh, I am so excited. I have been diligently working on this sampler (I have the first two houses completed) and have been waiting to see if you would post the last house. Hurray and THANK YOU SO MUCH! I love this piece!12

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR FINISHING THIS DESIGN. I love it so much and I already have two quilty houses complete. Now, I will have my quilty neighborhood!

I'm glad to hear your feeling better. Maybe you will be inspired to create more cross stitch patterns? I am a huge fan.

THANKS AGAIN - you made my day!

How exciting! I always feel like nobody ever really stitches my stuff! LOL! Sorry you have had to wait so long, but its coming!...Its coming!

I'm sorry to hear that you were so ill. But I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better and stitching. That is a really cute piece. I've never seen it before. It must feel so good to be on the home stretch with it.
