Hello everyone! Hope you all are doing well. I've been surviving a cold/flu like many of you have had. But I think I am on the mend finally. Boy I've missed you all. I need to get caught up on reading the blogs. I feel out of the loop (a saying that me and Nannie always say -lol). With this bug I could only sleep lots and still am getting my voice back. But before I became ill I did get some stitching done. And I have a new iron - WOOHOO!!! My last iron actually fell apart. Yes the bottom iron piece was popping of the bottom and the dial too popped out. Ha! I sure tried to do my best to keep it alive for as long as I could. But since I bought my new iron I can't believe why I fought for so long to keep the old one. My new iron is from Wallmart and its by T-fal called the Ultraglide easycord 4476 1700w. Let me tell you it's FANTASTIC. Look at my photos and you can tell the linens are ironed and smooth as can be. What a difference. The steam feature is nothing like I have ever had on a iron before. Amazing how they have improved. Also I did not pay a bundle for it either it was under $40. I am in love with my iron now:)
Here are some updates on Ann Dale:
The middle of the borders on the sides have been extended and the floral band is all done.
Who knew having a proper iron makes a huge difference. My last iron was 15 yrs old - lol.

Fairy Hill - Bothy Threads Cut Thru
I stitched another fairy, wish list, lots of green background, brown rocks or dirt separating to another room and a tree trunk. This is with Debbie and Linda's Monday SAL.
Currently I am working on a secret project as a gift for a special friend. It has lots of parts to it and I am in the process of constructing it together. Also finished a Valentine piece but saving that for next month to share with you. The weather here has warmed up during the days but evenings are still chilly (but I love it).
I sure hope you are well or if you are not feeling well - I send you well wishes.
With Love and Appreciation - Annette
