A new artist

     Thanks to whoever it was who wrote in about the new artist she found on eBay.  I love his stuff!!  He's got some great charts, but most of them have an undertone of violence.  You can see his charts here.  I love Hawiian Mermaid, Warrior Princess, Angel at Peace, and Twilight Wolf.  There are a couple of others I really like, but those are the four I want to get.  I also emailed Michele Sayetta and sent her a link to his site.  I can see him fitting right in over at HAED.
     My friend Rosa is in trouble.  I don't want to say what's all wrong with her, but she's in the hospital and really depressed about it.  If y'all could say a prayer for her, I would really appreciate it.  Or send a card.  The address is:
Rosa Winter
c/o Wilkes Regional Medical Center
1370 West D street
North Wilkesboro, NC,28659
     TIA to anyone who sends her a card to lighten the depression.  She's really not happy about being in the hospital, and I can't talk to her, which really sucks.  She's still in the ER, but is waiting for a room to become available.  I've been really worried about her, so this is no surprise to me.  I'm hoping she comes out of it okay, but we will see.  Please, say a prayer, send a card, anything to cheer her up!!!
     I didn't get to talk to her last night.  I was at mom's house.  We did some work on her computer.  It was quite funny.  I updated her firefox and her Incredimail.  Then she kept telling me that her IM didn't have that bar (the icons running across the top of the screen) before.  I kept telling her it did, but it just looked different.  Finally, I pointed out that she used to delete things and she just shut up and gave me a look, lol.  We had a nice time.  We grilled (a lot).  We had chicken breasts, metts, bratts, and hamburgers on the grill.  We had pasta salad, potato salad, and deviled eggs too.  Oh, and fresh corn on the cob.  I ate like a pig.  Hamburger, chicken breast, mett and a half, bratt, and some of each side dish.  I was stuffed!!!  I probably will gain ten pounds, lol. 
     While mom did her email, I worked on Bubbles.  I finally remembered to take a piccy.  Here she is in all her glory.  This is twenty four hundred stitches in, and yes, that is a quarter to show you how big it is so far.  (It's really small considering how many stitches are in it.)  I was hoping for a page finish by the end of this week, but it doesn't look like that's gonna happen.  Oh well, I'll be ready for a page finish next time it comes up in my rotation.  Next up is Astral Lion, starting on Monday.  (I am switching projects on Sunday, but Sunday is for Jesus, so I won't start him till Monday.)  Anyways, progress piccy is in my Bubbles album, here.  I hope you all had a good fourth of July weekend.  I'll post another pic when I finish Bubbles up for this rotation!

My goodness that's some tiny stitching! I hope your friend gets better.

I hope Rosa gets well real soon Julie. Sending lots of prayers and cyber hugs.

Bubbles is looking gorgeous.

Wishing Rosa good health once again!

Wow, such tiny stitches!

It is tiny Claudette. I'm stitching two over one in tent stitch (when I remember) and half stitch (when I don't) on 28 count. It looks sooooooo good though. Thanks Sally. I'm hoping she feels better ASAP too. She's too nice of a person to feel so bad. Thanks Nancy. She can use all the good thoughts she can get!! Yeah, they are tiny, but that makes the finished product look even better, IMHO. Soooo worth it!!

I hope Rose gets the help she needs. I like some of the New Artists designs. Bubbles is moving right along.

Sending many healing thoughts to your friend... I hope she gets better soon. Bubbles is looking great. :)

I hope so too, Shelleen. Well have to see what happens, but I'm praying hard for her. Me too. He's definitely going places. And thanks, I'm really loving working on her, despite the stitches being so small. Thanks Joysze. She can use all the help she can get. She's in a toxic home situation, and so being in the hospital is good for that. But being in the hospital is no fun, so it's bad that way. I really appreciate the prayers.
