Updates and PIF

Hi all!

Thank you to all of the well wishers for the prayers and positive thoughts. I'm doing much better mentally. I've been very positive about it all. I go to meet the surgical oncologist on Weds, Aug 6th. Not too much longer. Of course, I wish the time would go much faster. I'll know more after that appointment. Right now, I'm feeling under the weather though. I have bronchitis or some kind of viral respiratory flu. I'm hoping I start feeling better soon.

I still have 3 openings for my PIF. Please post here if you would like to participate.

Now for some progress pics. This picture is from the Little House Neighborhood. I decided to take from that chart for Julianne's RR. I think it will look nice when it's all finished. This is my new floss ring tag from a Reader's Digest compilation book. I think it turned out cute. Also you can see the floss drops I made from my Cricut machine that I use for scrapbooking.
I did not stitch this next piece, but I did finish it into a flatfold last night for my sister. I went through my fabric stash and found this piece of fabric. It was perfect for this piece.

And lastly, this is a picture of me and my 3 kids at the St. Louis Zoo. We went there this past Saturday. We had a pretty good time, even though it was 95 with a heat index of 105.
Well, I hope everyone has a great week, and I'll post an update after I see the oncologist on Wednesday.
Don't forget to sign up for my PIF.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Melissa!
I will be thinking good thoughts for you on Wednesday. The waiting must be really hard.
Glad you had a nice trip to the zoo - but oh man the heat! I did things like that with my kids when they were little though - just don't think I could do it now!
Cute little flat-fold. I've not tried that finishing method yet.
Hope you feel better soon.

Keeping you in my thoughts, Melissa! I hope everything goes well for you on Wednesday.

Love your flatfold and the little birdie tag - very cute!

Hi Melissa. I will be praying for you. I hope you get the answers you want and need from this visit. The waiting seems to be the hardest. I hope you feel better with your bronchitis too.
