I'm Back with Day 36

Hello, everyone! Still alive and kicking, but just barely. The surgery went well; I'm still a bit sore but there was no cancer so I'm happy. The closing on the house was a nightmare and we had to make two trips to downtown Phoenix because they didn't know there were two sets of loan papers to fill out. (???!??) After two trips there was still one piece of paper that we needed to sign and they sent a courier out to our apartment with that. Of course the courier "got busy" so we didn't get the paper in time for the sale to be recorded that day which meant we didn't get the keys until the next day. In Arizona you can't get the keys until the loan has funded and the sale has been recorded at the Clerk's office. Anyway, long story short, we are the proud owners of a 1950 red brick ranch with seventy-gazillion boxes still full and sitting everywhere! The best part is that I now have a room to use as a studio or workroom or whatever I end up calling it... I can hardly move in it right now but it's all mine! WOOHOO!

And, I finished my interpretation of the Day 36 detail:
Day 36 detail
It's a pima cotton and perle cotton mixture with glass and pearl beads. I love using rick rack so this one is a definite keeper.

Yesterday I signed up for Sharon Boggon's class Personal Library of Stitches at Joggles.com. I just loved her Encrusted Crazy Quilting class last spring (which she is offering again) and am really looking forward to this one as well. It's gonna be alot of fun!!

Well, I'm blogging at work (!) so I better sign off. Just wanted you all to know that I survived and am back to stitching!

Talk to you soon!

Oh, I'm so happy to hear no cancer! That is music to my ears when I hear it these days.

Your seam is gorgeous. I just love the way you did it, and the colors you used. I'll bet it feels good to be back into it.

Glad to hear everything turned out okay. I really like this stitch you posted today. I want to copy it, but I have to get some rick-rack. I bought some, but got the small stuff and it doesn't cut it.
