Fifteen Down...35 More To Go!

Think Pink by Lizzie Kate is done! Woohoo!

I just love the way the variegated threads turned out on this one :o) I actually completed this on Friday but just never had the chance to post before this. It was a fun project to stitch although I'm not sure how I'm going to finish it yet. I love the pillow that was made for the model piece but mine won't look as good as that! I'm going to have to put on my thinking cap....

This past week and weekend were extremely busy for me. I'm almost ashamed that I haven't posted since last Wednesday. I think it was the fact that I scared so many readers with my underwear post ;o) Honestly guys, it was just a bit of kicks and giggles. LOL!

To update everyone on the LTD/work issue, LTD came back saying they wanted an IME (Independent Medical Exam) and it was to be by a doctor of their choice. On Friday, I went in for this exam and DH went with me. I believe the visit went very well. There was no denying the fact that I have Fibromyalgia or Mitral Valve Prolapse. I was good and tired for the exam seeing that I was up at 4 am that morning and unable to get back to sleep. Since I also had to work before the exam, the fatigue was very apparent by the time I got to my appointment. It will probably be a couple of weeks before we know anything more but we're hoping we are one more step closer to having this whole thing over with.

On Saturday, I finished cleaning my computer/craft room and I'm SO happy to have a spotless space again! I cannot tell you the last time it was cleaned. There were dust bunnies the size of Brie in there! LOL! Now, this room is quite small and it took a good two days for me to do all the work. I paid for it though because the pain was almost unbearable :o( DH and I plan to do the whole house in stages but he's going to be doing most of the work. I've got the spring cleaning bug ;o)

On Sunday, we met up with DH's parents for breakfast up at Smitty's. My SIL, BIL and nephew were there too. It's been awhile since I've seen the little guy and I was shocked to see that he's got FOUR teeth! I'm told he is quite the little biter though ;o) I can never get over how happy this child is and we were at the restaurant for an hour and a half. DH is jealous though because our nephew has already earned his first paycheck and he's not even a year old yet :o)

I loooooove that finish ! Great colours - what is that fabric ? It looks so cheerful. Congratulations !

And congratulations on the craft room. I'm sure it was a ton of work - but it must be satisfying to see now :) Yay for you !

Please don't send the dust bunnies to me though... I've got my own mini colony going on LOL

He earned his first paycheque at under 1 yr old ? I am impressed !

Think Pink looks great! Glad things at the docs are going better - it will be such a relief, eventually. Sounds like you had a good weekend but take it easy too!

Well, I would definitely call it a bad health... I'm sorry about all that, and also admirative of the way you explain things as you give a very interesting point of view. Thank you.
On a lighter tone, I do share your underwear tastes and distates and had a good laugh...
Your LHN project turned out very beautiful and I agree 200% with the saying.
Take care, Cathey!

Very cute! Before you know it, your finishes count will equal your Easter Cream egg count!

Hope you get some good news as a result of Friday's doctor visit.

Oh, Cathey ... I truly LOVE your blog! I love the diversity of your posts - you always have me chuckling - and saying quick prayers for your ill friends. Your stitching's wonderful, as always. I hope you get great news from the doctor!!
