Mmm, mmm! Love it all! This has helped me get in a little better mood! :) Matthew has definitely caught a cold - the poor baby. He's all stuffed up. I've been giving him Tylenol about every four hours. He's just miserable.

My baby is not happy!
My first cold, and I'm not happy! :(

I did get a little, tiny bit of stitching done last night. I finished up another tombstone (my dh can't believe I'm stitching tombstones!) and some grass in the graveyard.

VOHRH as of 11/23/06.

I'm going to try to get some more stitching done on this tonight. Well, not much else. Hopefully Matthew feels better soon, and hopefully he sleeps a little more tonight! :)


  1. Absolutely love your stash and the tombstones are great.

  2. Elegant Stitches are local to me, but I don't cross stitch. Is that all they carry?

  3. Oh my gosh - I wish I had your stash spending budget!

  4. Cool work on VoHRH. I recently bought that one and can't wait to start it. I love your new stash. Silver Needle sends everything like a gift too, I love it. Ann.

  5. Wow! Love all those fabrics, they are beautiful!
    I feel for your little one, my 15 mo. old just got over a 1 month cold. (wait a minute while I go knock on wood!)
    ~~ I understand how tiring and upsetting it can be to see them suffer.
    Lovely re-start on VoHRH....I need to pick mine up again!

  6. I'm with your husband on the tombstones bit. Creepy, creepy! Not that I don't like your stitching or anything but these Hawk Run Hollow or whatever they're called always give me the eebie jeebies for some reason. Please don't take that as an insult ... it really wasn't meant that way :o)

    Matthew, aww hunny, I hope you're feeling better soon. It must be so horrible to have a cold so young, especially as you don't understand what's happening to you. Big Hugs from the UK.

  7. What awesome new stash! I hope that Matthew gets better soon. That first cold . . . well any cold is always horrible! Give him a BIG get well kiss for me!

  8. Poor Matthew - he looks like Rudolf the red nosed reindeer. Hope he gets better soon.

  9. Great new stash, Nicole! I'm envious. I hope poor little Matthew gets over his cold soon.

  10. Hey Nicole, I didn't know you had a blog, I was just clicking links in other blogs and landed on yours! You are right, Lois is the best, just love getting stash from her!
