Summer Postcard Blog Hop

Hi friends! My pain has barely gone down. :(  I went to the pain management PA on Tuesday. She really poked, prodded and pushed. This is why I am still suffering. Percocet is getting me through. Unfortunately stitching while on percocet guarantees stitchy mistakes. puh!

I have not one, but two lovely stitchy pictures to share with you on my Summer Postcard from Mouse!
I am not familiar with either of these designs.  So fantastic!

And here is the message on my postcard from Mouse:
dear stitchy friend ... 
the sun is out,
the sky is blue .... 
my needles in my hand, 
how about you ???

wish you were here joining me :)
 
love mouse x

I was sent this postcard because I took part in the Summer Postcard Blog Hop sponsored by Jo. You can join too if you like! Just have a look here. :) Thanks Mouse! Thanks Jo!

I wanted to share with you a surprise that arrived in the mail for me yesterday.
A lovely lavender pillow filled with lavender. Didn't Jacquie do a wonderful job?! It is backed with a wonderful purple fabric too. Thank you so much Jacquie! I certainly was taken by surprise. :)

That's it for me today friends. I am trying to get better. I hope you have an excellent weekend. :)

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Some lovely gifts. Stitchy gifts are always the best. Glad the Percocet helps a little, even if it does kind of wipe you out. Sending good thoughts your way in the hope that you will feel better soon.

Penny said...

A couple of lovely finishes from Mouse! Lavender is one of my favorite plants, and fragrances. Jacquie did a beautiful job on the pillow! Keeping you in my prayers, Vickie.

Carol said...

Hope the percocet is helping you through the worst of the pain, Vickie... It must be exhausting to deal with it day in and day out... Nice postcards from Mouse and such a pretty little pillow :)

Hope you feel better soon!

Anne said...

Love these two works from Mouse ; lavender is each year a pattern I stitch (to keep small harvest from the garden) I'd like to try the lazy daisy stitch like Jacquie. Best wishes xxx
