Spring Exchange for Sharon

Hello Friends, quick drive by posting here....I just received word that Sharon received her Spring Exchange that I did for her, and here it is:

A Scissor Keep for Sharon

Designer: Blackbird Designs
Design: "From Me to Thee" taken from booklet "Tokens of Friendship"
This is my last stitching installment for Sharon. We started this same time last year and she's been my stitching "victim" through it all. I was lucky to have her as my partner, and friends we shall always be. This although not a totally "springy" type pattern shows what I thought of her and the big crow holding a bundle of flowers was spring enough for me...our initials and year were added for memory's sake.
Sorry this is short....but I've got a terrible case of the stomach flu, virus...or whatever you want to call it...I guess my day of melancoly the other day was just the beginnings of this terrible virus...I can't seem to shake it. So my first weekend off in 12 weeks and it's spent lying in bed...felling like crap! LOL! Gotta laugh...no use in crying! ;)
While I can't stitch because I can't hold my head up....stitch your fingers off for me :)

  48. I'm trying to read through your blog and just get caught up, but I had to stop and comment on this one. I saw it on Sharon's blog, as well, and it's just gorgeous! You do simply outstanding work. :) BTW, I sent someone your way for finishing work yesterday, so if you get an inquiry about finishing a bellpull that a woman's mother is working on, that was me. ;)
