Redwork Exchange for Terry

Terry received my Redwork exchange today. I stitched this freebie and finished it into a biscornu. I used DMC 115 on some white fabric. I fell in love with this one as I was stitching it and had a hard time parting with it.



I have been working on the backstitching on Woodland Faerie so I don't have any real progress pictures to show. I finished the backstitching on the outside border and now I am working on the blue/purple flowers on the inner border. Let me just say...There is a LOT of backstitching on this pattern!

The second week of school and things are already back to the normal chaotic household. The thing I detest most about going back to school is the germs! Wednesday Mike was sick and ended up staying home only because he kept throwing up. Today I had to go pick Krissy up from school because she had started throwing up. Who will it strike next?! Hopefully, not me!

With the household full of queasy stomachs, I am not making any plans for this weekend. The only thing I have planned is taking the kids to the library in the morning to check out books. That is, if Krissy feels like it and the other 2 haven't become sick.

Have a great weekend!

Love the biscornu, I've been having so much fun looking at everyone's redwork exchanges, but then red is my favorite color.
