A few of you have inquired about my cough, so I thought I'd give an update. After four trips to the doctor, I got tired of going so I've been riding out the cough. I did do a 14-day self-treatment of Prilosec OTC because several of you indicated it could've been due to reflux with the symptoms I described. I don't know if it helped or not, since I still get a little cough (usually when the weather is hot and humid). Other than that, the cough is MUCH better and only rears its ugly little head occassionally. Thanks to everyone for their suggestions and concerns over this.
On Sunday, muscle pains and bruises showed up to keep the road rash on my face and knee company. As much as I don't want to, I'm going to have to go out in public so I can get my glasses fixed. Thank goodness I'm on vacation all this week -- I look like I had the crap beat out of me.
I harvested my very first tomato this year! It was a cherry tomato... and the piggy that I was... I ate it right away. It was SO good! Soon I will have a ripe regular size tomato. Can't wait!
COMPULSIVE MAIL CHECKER
How many can relate to the label "compulsive mail checker" when we know packages are on their way in the mail? I came across this cartoon and thought it was pretty funny. :)
The real reason for this "blurb" is to let several of my stitchy friends know that you have packages coming your way (or you've already received them by now). Recently, I sent out the prizes for the Amoire Contest (Sue V, Debbie M, CJ, and Joy) and the Mailart Contest (Shelley).
I decided to create more beaded scissor fobs last week. They look much prettier in person than my photo.

MY STITCHY AREA
Due to a challenge, Sari showed what her stitchy table looked like. I thought it was a neat idea, so I thought I'd share what my current stitchy area looks like.
Trying to finish two UFO's before I start any new projects (except those for exchanges). Both were started over 3 years ago.
First up, Simply Elegant Scissor case:
When I took a photo of what was in my messenger bag above, I found the Comedy Tragedy Bookmark so I put a few stitches in it:
There are lots of confetti stitches in it.
