I was worried the tread heaven would make the string feel funny, but it doesn't it just makes stitching as easy as I think it should be.

We came down with the H1N1 flu in our house and it was AWFUL.
I know my school's been going crazy about the flu. They put up hand sanitizers and everything EVERYWHERE! I'm not too worried though. A few years ago one of the teachers brought back mumps from a research trip. That was fun. Half the Anthro department came down with it. I thought I had too, but it turned out to be strep, and that I think I caught from Jared Leto.

Anyway, on topic, I'm almost done with Lily's towel. I just have to add some color. Then it will be always sunny and perfect. *wink wink*

My tale of woe involves spending most of the last 24 hours either puking or, well... you know. Bloody food poisoning.

I did get a start on Susie's towel though before the illness hit, so that's a bright point.

Feel better!  We came down with the H1N1 flu in our house and it was AWFUL.  I didn't get it, but I took care of everyone.  Fortunately, I can report that the H1N1 swine flu is much shorter lasting than regular flu.

Oh shheeesh!  Did you all get tested by the health dept to confirm it?  I'm hoping my insurance will cover the H1N1 shot for free since it's teachers' insurance, they always do free flu shots.  One of the middle schools just to the south of us had 14 cases in the first week of classes.
My tale of woe has been the chicken pox!  Don't worry, I didn't touch a single towel until I was over it.  I was vaccinated & everything, yet I still got a mild case of it at 21 yrs old.

Anyways, on topic -- I've finished mamaphunk's towel & hopefully I'll get pictures done before class tomorrow & in the post after class!

I finished fiberartsy's towel and posted pics of it.  It's early since I am in the late group.  But I just couldn't wait anymore to stitch.

Hello everyone! I was AFK for a bit, but I am back in business now. Looks like I have a lot of reading to do over in the gallery...

I got fenifer's towel last week before I left home for a work thing. It doesn't have a theme, so I did some internet research last night and drew up an original design based on a common interest that we have and I plan on stitching it up tonight. ... I hope she likes it!

In the meantime, I think I have a picture on my camera still of the tiny design I started with on my own towel, so I'll have to find that and post it in the gallery.

No, by the time I called the pediatrician, everyone was on the mend and it was too late for the test.  I heard on the news that 98% of the viruses going around now are H1N1, and the symptoms matched, so we just stayed away from people for several days.

I must have had a very mild case, because I can scarcely describe any symptoms and I was certainly exposed.  Daughter had a sore throat, chills, and mild diarrhea.  Husband had those symptoms, only much worse and for about 3 days.  Son was barfy and the worst of all, but all are fine now!

The school just asked us to keep them home until 24 hours after a fever which is the usual practice. Total quarantine for 7 days is pretty excessive.  If you are a teacher, you should get the flu shot for sure!

I'm sadly not in this swap, but I've kind of been stalking the gallery because I just started embroidery on some tea towels and you guys are super talented.  I will definitely keep an eye out for the next round.

  I remembered a post in the recent with pics a while back of the Tea Tour 2009 van, and I just spotted it today in Olympia!  Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic, but I was kind of excited and made mr. bunnyface take one, though I guess I should have been a little nervous to stop and snap a quick photo since Kittykill said they seemed surly (luckily no one saw us).

I think I'm in love with the tea pot van.

Hehe, thanks bunnyface!!!

Maybe we should contact the artist behind that Tea Tour to let her know she's being noticed by crafters Cheesy
