Hello to All and Happy Friday!
I've been a bit absent this week and just wanted to check in and let you know that I'm doing o.k. So here's the update portion of this post. Lol Early in the week I ended up in the ER due to some health concerns. I won't go on with details, but let's just say a new medication is helping and I'm doing much better. Today I have felt better than I have all week, so I'm definitely going in the right direction. I hope to get back to blogland more, although may be posting a bit less for a while. I know I mentioned to some of you through email, and on your blogs personally, that I had some issues going on. I just want to send out the biggest heartfelt thank you for your kind words and prayers. They mean so much to me...and I even get choked up when I think about it. I feel so blessed to have all the love and support from family and friends here, let alone the wave of love and friendship I feel from so many of you blogging pals!! It just makes my day when I read your comments, or visit you and see what you've been up to lately. You mean a great deal to me and I thank you so much for everything! Looking forward to good days ahead in 2016!!
Alright, now on to some other things I'd like to share today. Around the start of the holiday break my daughter and I were enjoying a craft book she had purchased at a school book fair. It has many fun cross stitch ideas...and here is one that we worked on together for a fox necklace. I think it turned out pretty cute! One might even say it's "foxy"! ;)
It had a nice hoop to make working on the project easier.
Once we finished with the cross stitch part, we put the trimmed down finished piece of material in the hoop-like necklace medallion. As you can see there are other ideas for making a necklace, or other craft, including cross stitch alphabet letters.
We then trimmed the rest of the material down to fit the necklace and adhered it to the back. The book and kit came with this chain also. Annie just loved how it turned out!
Since I kind of missed out on a lot this week - I thought I'd share a quick recipe that sounds really yummy! I didn't do much cooking this week, due to joint pain in my hands, but here was a recipe I wanted to try, and I still plan to make in the future. Sounds like a yummy side dish to me!
