Blogoversary & SAL request revisited

Jean has let me know she received my blogoversary drawing gift. I sent her a big box of Christmas finishing supplies. It was lots of fun choosing what to include!
In the end, I stayed home yesterday. I figured it would be such poor taste to share my cold with unsuspecting others. Thank you all for the get-well-wishes; I don't feel too bad, just a bit run-down and I can't stop sneezing. I did get some great stitching time and was able to read blogs to my hearts content.

I have begun kitting up my Crabby All Year project. I am still looking for stitch-a-long partners if anyone is interested. Click the link above to see my original post. Click here to see the project I am planning, it's the fourth design down. I have purchased the floss and ordered the fabric. I chose Silkweaver's Days Gone By in 32 count Lugana. What do you think? I still need to order the buttons. OMG, they are $43.00 from 123 Stitch. It's hard to swallow that expense...I might ask for them for Christmas.

$43 for buttons? You must be kidding :-o Designers should think of us before to add those expensive fancy buttons ... I know the finish is great but still ...

You sent nice things to Jean: what a lucky gal !!! :-)

Hope you feel better ;)

Lucky Jean!
Super gorgeous gift!!

Great gift package. And Days Gone By looks like a perfect color. But when you get those buttons, better keep them under lock and key. That's one expensive set of buttons.
