Still Sick but Busy

This is the longest flu, I have had. But, on the bright side, if it is the swine flu, I can relax and not worry the rest of the winter;)
I have been working on a punched project for a special friend and today I made a teeny tiny stocking for a group challenge we were doing today. I think it took me longer to stitch this, then to punch one;) The pattern was in an old issue of good housekeeping. It is two inches long, so I will add it to a christmas doll display.

I have also been blessed with good friends who send me special presents, just because they are nice.Lori sent me a wonderful package today. I love the pumpkin and mat she made for me. The picture is in my kitchen, but I have it on my apothecary box, which it is perfect for. I also won prizes this week, I have no idea where that luck is coming from, never had it before, lol. So, when I receive the gifts, I will share them with you. Since I have been blessed so much this week, I will be having a contest this week. A little hint, it is a signed copy;) So, keep your eyes open for the contest.

I started a little project using a Primitive Betty's freebie, and I chuckled because I think it's definitely quicker to punch than x-stitch. Lucky you with the mat and pumpkin. Your stocking is very cute, and I hope you feel better soon! Hugs, Sam
