Thank you for the birthday wishes for Jóhanna Brynja. We had a lovely day with family and friends celebrating the birthday. Unfortunately in the evening when I was putting Jóhanna Brynja to sleep we discovered that she was running a fever and was red all over her torso. Took her to the doctor yesterday and it turned out she has scarlet fever. So we got back home with a dose of penincillin which she has to take for the next 10 days. She is feeling a lot better now after she started the medicine.

I stayed home yesterday with Jóhanna Brynja and we spent the day just taking it easy. Jóhanna Brynja watched TV while I stitched. I managed to finish two projects. I can’t show you a picture as one is a secret stitch that can’t be revealed yet and the other one is for the Monthly Challenge at Jayne’s Attic Message Board. But I can tell you that this month we are to stitch a Papillion designs freebie. We could choose which freebie we wanted to do. Now I just have to finish it and I plan to try something I haven’t done before. I’ll show you later. 🙂

I am staying home today with Jóhanna Brynja and today I am working on my Nature’s Home afghan again. When I have finished stitching tonight I am going to take a picture of the whole afghan to show you how far I’ve got.  Chiloe: I’m sorry I forgot to answer your question about my afghan. I am stitching this on 14ct Aida fabric as a whole picture. I decided against doing this as an afghan.
