My Favorite Things

This will be a short post because I am not feeling well. It is very damp and cold here tonight and my arthritis is causing a lot of pain. I'm trying not to take a lot of painkillers when I'm not working after reading all the new warnings about ibupropen and Aleve.

This is the Quaker bunny I stitched for Elizabeth. Now that she has recieved it I can share a picture.

This is the beautiful needleroll that Cathy stitched for me. She also put together some Easter themed goodies and beautiful varigated floss for my package.

Yuko made this pretty little purse with a Quaker design for me. She also sent me two beautiful Japanese fabrics and a book on origami.

Thank you so much Cathy and Yuko your work is lovely and the packages were so much fun to find waiting for me after a long day at work.

Mike is doing well in rehab. They said he is progressing more quickly than expected. I'm going to visit him tomorrow.

Hope your athritis leaves you alone soon, Chris. I wonder what the warnings are about ibupropen? (I take some when I have migraines).

I am so glad to hear Mike is improving, what great news!

Your stitching is so beautiful. Love that quaker bunny.
Cathy's needleroll is lovely, as well!
Yuko's exchange is fabulous. Wow, those fabrics and books! :)

I, too, have arthritis and am having good luck with the pain killer, Ultracet. Ask your doctor about it.
