Firstly thank you for all the kind comments and emails about my sick family. Thankfully everyone is doing well and back to their usual selves. I can happily say that I avoided this bout of illness which is a good thing. On the other hand, I cut my ring finger quite badly while chopping up pumpkin. I was trying to rush and well I sliced right into the tip of my finger. I looks quite bad and yucky, but I think it should be OK. I have disinfected it and bandaged it and now I can only hope it heals up well. What I am most thankful for is that it's not my stitching finger!
Becky has received the pinkeep I made her for the Friends Through Thread pinkeep exchange. I thought I would try something different and make a scissor/needle pocket at the back. After a few attempts at sewing the lace on, I am really happy with the way it all turned out.

I have also been able to get my portion of Wendy Jo's RR completed for the Emblem of Love RR. It's stitched over one using Crescent Colours Wavy Navy. This was a pleasure to stitch as it's quite different from mine. I stitched the swan motif and the bird in the apple tree motif.
