I don't know where the week has gone..... I have been feeling better but the migraine has been lurking all week but I've managed to keep it from coming back! I'm really not sure if it was the migraine or my chronic paroxysmal headache (CPH) so I've been alternating meds. And it seems to be working. Let me say thanks to all who commented for the good wishes to feel better. I so appreciate it! I do believe stitchers are a special group of caring individuals!!! Thank so very much!!!! I have gotten quite a bit of stitching done. I just haven't been up to posting or being on the computer.

My first update is about my 1st Annual Stitchin! It was wonderful with lots of food fun and friendship!!!! The weather was wonderful so until the afternoon we were outside under the deck for eating great food and of course stitching. Here is a group shot... And yes there is a man there as well..he is a new stitcher that I work with and fit right in with the group. We had so much fun. The stitching group is so very special to me. A few people weren't able to be there and were missed very much. So Margaret and Mae and Cheryl there is next year to look forward too!!! And Deb we all look forward to your joining us next year!!! At the end of the afternoon they gave me a present for hosting the party. A new chart that is so me!!!!! Picture to come next post!! Thank you ladies!!!!!

I have an update on Fairy Moon as well. I am so loving stitching this chart it is just flowing...... and Isn't she just so pretty!!!!! I have to look up the name of the fabric...next post I promise! I love stitching her.

I have a picture of my dear furbaby Storm... She behaved so well with all of my friends and everyone loved her......

I spent the afternoon pulling threads for A Tower at Stoney Wood by HAED..... I will start this on Monday!!! I have one other HAED going as well Fairy Tea Party......not a whole lot done but I really should get it into my loose rotation..... She is the little bluish blob in my sidebar under WIP's.....

I am grateful for my stitching friends......


  1. Wow! Excellent progress on Fairy Moon. Your stitch-in sounds wonderful. Wish I could have been there, too! I admire you for doing those HAEDs. I've been too chicken to try one yet. Glad you're feeling a bit better.

  2. Fairy Moon looks gorgeous Juls:)

    Your stitch in sounds fantastic! It would have been wonderful to have been there:)

    I can't wait to see your progress on your HAEDs.

    Hope you are feeling much better.

  3. Dear Juls, I would have loved to be there in the thick of things at the 1st Annual Stitch-in!! Next year in Nevada!!! I know all of you had a great time. I will soon be posting pics from Jessica's baby shower which was on Saturday. We had fun, too! Sending love and hugs. You are working beautiful stitchery, and I want those migraines to flee!!!
    Hugs, Deb

  4. I just found your blog and your work is AMAZING! I've only been stitching for about 2 years but I'm obsessed!!! The HAED is gorgeous...that looks like it would take a lifetime to complete!

  5. Wonderful progress on Fairy Moon! She's really coming along.

  6. I know I'm commenting backwards...but I'm trying to catch up with blog posts...
    Your party looks like a really good time...wish there was that kind of fun around here!

    TWO haeds .... YOU are my idol!

  7. You have your hands full on stitching front. So it seems to be. But I want you to enjoy your journey. Let's hope both headaches will leave you alone.


Would you like a cup of tea? Earl Grey or Prince of Wales perhaps or even Lady Grey or maybe Winterberry or we can have a look in the cupboard I have an ever growing stash of tea......... Thanks for visiting with me!!!!
