Summer DYB, Another tin

My work recently has been horrendous, the past 3-4 weeks have not been good at all.
I do medical transcription on the internet. I personally prefer to get up about 2 am, get my work done, and have time to work on my stitching, run errands, or whatever. Recently I get up at 2 a.m. and there is no work, have to wait around for doctors to dictate it, and then try to grab
work before anyone else can grab it. Which makes for a long day, and not a very happy camper.
If I could get done by noon I would be happy, but I have been getting done at 4:30 to 5. One day it took until 8 p.m. to get my commitment done.

Which means, I have not been stitching as much, and this does not make for a happy Karrin.



Last week I did get this done. This is from the Summer DYB (do your own block), and it was Rebecca's block. I took this really awful picture, but did not realize it until I had already packed it up to be mailed to Cobi.










Last week I did get a happy surprise in the mail.
This was the last of my tin swap tins. I received this from Skye, and it is lovely.














She included inside an embroidered hankie (which I happen to collect) and some assorted ribbon flowers.

Thank you so much Skye again for this lovely tin, and I think it was the highlight of my week!

Hi Karrin,
Your new schedule seems so hard, however you create lovely things. I liked your work on the block and your swap tin is so lovely.
Thanks for sharing.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend,
