Finally....A Finished Bishop.......

Thank you all so very much for the kind words surrounding my kidney infection. This has really been crazy. I've never had anything like this in my entire life and I hope I never have it again. I was in bed for a solid 6 days! Finally on Monday I was able to move around a bit and actually had a bit of motivation in me to sit and hand stitch for a minute or two. During that time I made the button loops and stitched the buttons on this dress. I am so happy to be finished with it. Inside I am jumping up and down....but if I were to really do that I would have to hold my side which still hurts. (Seven solid days on antibiotics and my side still hurts....strange!)

Anyway it seems like I've been working a few minutes here and there on this bishop forever! I am so glad to be finally finished!!!

This little dress completes my requirements for the SAGA Correspondence Course I am taking. I will happily put it in an envelope tomorrow and send it to the instructor for her honest and experienced critique. I know I like it.

And although I still don't feel great, I am better. Last night I even picked up my OFB gown from last summer to work on. I can't believe I have let it sit this long unfinished....but I think some more hand stitching sounds like a good thing!

Hi Cindy,
I am sooo glad you are feeling better. I know you are too!! Were your ears burning this morning? I had a lovely conversation with Paige, and we made the connection to you. :) I finally got my pockets for the Luke shorts sorted out! Paige is DEElightful for sure.

BTW, my OFB gown from last summer needs finishing too. :) We will get there......soon. Take care and continue to gain strength. Hugs, Darby

Sorry to hear you've been sick, but very happy you are recovering. The bishop is beautiful and I love the new fabrics (I'm waiting for some of that cute apple fabric to arrive in my mailbox today. :)

The bishop is precious!
