It's been awhile, but lots of progress to show...

Hi to all! It's been awhile since my last post. Lots has happened since then, both stitching wise and personally.
The pictures in this post are from my finishes in the last month or so. The only thing not here is pictures of the project for JCS magazine. This first picture is from the Make A Wish exchange for Cathy B. She said that she wanted something from LHN, so this is what I chose. They are both pieces from Heart of America. I really had a great time making these.
This next piece is from the LHN RR that I'm in for the Worldwide RR board. This is Joan's piece. I took my square from Curly Q Ewe. I finished this today. Unfortunately, it's a couple of days late in mailing, but I think it was worth it.
These are my squares from F&S Round 7 for Annemiek. I hope she likes them. It is from the online magazine The Gift of Stitching.
This last one is from the Hooked on Exchanging Board. It's from the LHN exchange. This is from the LHN freebie of Summer House. I finished it as a floss tag. I hope my partner, Lily, likes it.
Now, the other reasons I have ben busy is work, kids, and lots of dr's appts. lately. I went to a new dr. about a month ago just to establish myself as a new patient. Well, ended up getting a nuclear med scan, ultrasound of my thyroid, this week I am having a fine needle aspiration biopsy of my goiter, and next week, I'm having surgery to remove my goiter and most of my thyroid. I'm really nervous about all of this since I've only ever been in the hospital to have kids.
Well, if you lasted this long, thanks so much. I'll be back soon with another post.

Your finishes are great Melissa. And I LOVE my squares, can't wait to see them in person. I have been wanting to stitch this design for myself and now I can just enjoy yours.
Good luck on the surgery, I'll be thinking of you.
