Received Seasonal Exchange

I received a very cute and sparkly autumn exchange from Lisa S.  It is stitched on 28 ct tea dyed linen and she used the recommended threads.  I love it.  It is a stand up exchange and it looks so good with my autumn decorations. 
I was late posting because I have a terrible inner ear infection that has knocked me for a loop.  I think it is getting better but I want to be healed yesterday. :)  It is hard for the music teacher to have ear problems.  I have two Christmas programs to get ready and with the school doing all of the extra work preparing for our accreditation visit, I am having a hard time.  But I will prevail.

What a Week

This has been a week that I truly did meet myself coming and going.  We celebrated All Saints Day at our school with the Bishop leading the Mass.  We all kinds of special music with the hand chimes and the Honor Choir singing.  But the best was one of our parents plays the bagpipe and stood at the back of the church and played "Amazing Grace" as the children exited in silence.  My eyes filled with tears but I wasn't the only one.  He was dressed in his kilt and it was a perfect ending to a great faith filled service. 

I finished an exchange and a belated birthday gift for a dear friend.  Right now time is very precious because I have so many things to do at the school during our accreditation process.

We are having Parent/Teacher Conferences so I did not have to go to school today.  It has been good just to sit and stitch.  Another good friend and I are headed to southern Oklahoma to visit our friend that moved there from Okmulgee.

Enjoy your weekend and "Go Cowboys"!!!!!!!

This is a Stitchworks Design from 2001.  It is stitiched on 28 ct,
