Should I change the verse?

I've been so sick. This past weekend, Friday, I started to feel awful. Got off work early and went to the doctors, I have ear infection and strep throat. I was running a fever, felt weak all over, throat hurt something awful. I had to call off work Sat. and Sun. I did go to work on Monday but I probably shouldn't have. Keith also got sick. He was worse off than me, at least he played it off like he was. Didn't get out of bed for 2 days. So guess who had to look after Brandon. ME! Keith didn't even bother to get up to help me out. Men are so wimpy when they are sick. LOL

I did get a lot of stitching done over the weekend tho. I couldn't do much else but lay on the couch. So I stitched. Here is a picture of my WIP. It may not look like i've gotten much done, but that right border took me forever! So many color changes, I could have skipped ..or traveled..but I was worried my thread would show. So I had to stitch a few stitches, tie off, re thread needle, stitch a few..ect..I've been thinking about removing the wording and stitching Home is where the heart is..or something like that. I haven't decided tho.

I bought some Even weave fabric from a 123 MB lady last week. I received it the other day. She even sent me some 32Ct. Even weave to try. I have only stitched on 28 count. I
can't wait to stitching something on it. I'd like to find a bright and colorful flower chart to stitch. Something like flower power but not as large. Here is a picture of what she sent me Isn't it pretty!

Other than my illness and my stitching I haven't been doing much. I did read the VC Andrews book that I wrote about in my last post. It was a grrrreat book. I am now on the Third book in that series. It's not as great as the first but I'm still reading along. I usually read a few chapters before bed. It's so relaxing to lay in bed with a book before falling asleep. I used to do cross word puzzles before going to sleep. But that took too much thought. LOL

Soon it will be my Birthday, (Sept 30th). I'll be 29 years old. I can't believe I'll be one year from 30. I don't feel like I should be turning 29. Man has the years flown by. Anyways, I'm off to sort the laundry and start cleaning up the kitchen. I cleaned out the fridge yesterday, washed it down, couldn't believe how dirty it was inside. How did it get so dirty? We put food in and take food out? Where did all the stains and dirt come from? I'm still amazed at it. Today I will tackle the stove. I think.LOL

Anyways, thanks for reading my blog and thanks for the comments. Happy stitching and Happy day!

Great for the new fabrics: you seem to have some hand dyes: are they silkweaver? I know I'm very curious. DOn't worry about the 32 count: there is almost no difference between the 28 and 32 ct.

You made good progress with your new WIP. When you change the colors it takes time but it's worth it ;)

By the way, I got my Passione ricamo Winter (couldn't get the Autumn anywhere ) but it's nice too ;) i got it from lady of stitches (like yours? )

Hope you feel better soon! You will see we are always 20 yo in our head: that's why getting old sucks ! lol

Love the new project, you are making good progress. I know what you mean about starting, stopping and rethreading, it really does slow things down.

Someone once told me that instead of stitching with just one needle, they keep one needle threaded with each color in the project, I tried it and it does seem quicker than having to rethread for just a few stitches.

The fabric is very pretty and I am sure you will find some lovely things to stitch on it.

Check your e-mail as I am sending you one in a moment.

Great progress Becca! The evenwaves you bought are lovely. I'm sure you won't have any problem stitching on 32ct :)
Hope you are feeling better!

You will enjoy using the 32 count it really doesnt seem that much different to work on.

You are stitching a lovely piece and seems like it would be a shame to have to frog all that wording.
