Upward trajectory

I don't know if it's the season or the attitude of gratitude, but I feel really good today.  We're having one of those amazing,Utah, clear, blue, sky kind of days.  My husband continues to heal.  Thank you all for your prayers and notes of concern.  It warms my heart to know how many truly kind people I have the fortune of knowing.  The puppies are calmly napping at my feet.  I'm feeling good about what my amazing crew and I have accomplished this week, and hopeful about what we'll accomplish next week.

I'm feeling more and more relieved as I check in with stitchers from the flooding zone in Colorado.  Most seem to have made it through with their lives and little damage.  I have one or two that I have yet to contact, so ...those of you that I haven't yet contacted, would you ease my mind and pop off an e-mail when you can? (Katrina D. and Sandra A. come to mind)

I wanted to share some fun photos I received last week.  I know that every one of you has a secret (or not so secret) stash of future projects.  This is the first time I've gotten to see a "stash" of my mats for future projects.  I'm fairly certain that Nancy B can fill every one of these mats with amazing needlework. (and I hear that she does a darn fine Snoopy dance as well!)  Thank you for Sharing, Nancy.




And I wanted to show you what my lovely and talented Amber painted this week. (among other things)  I'm so excited to have her on the staff that I'm starting a new page to showcase her talents.

 And here are the pieces that we got finished up and shipped out.  Enjoy.  I'm headed off to prepare a new batch for next week.

I love that little purring creature! And that home of a needleworker thing. And you can make even cartoon stuff (Donald Duck & friends) look amazing.
