Spoke too soon

Mom had a minor stroke last Thursday evening and is in the hospital.  But, she is due to go back to the nursing home today.  She is much better than she was on Thursday, thank goodness!

Unfortunately, I can't go visit her because of a bad cold :-(  Haven't had one in years, and this one is kicking my butt!  Going to the doctor this afternoon. 

I don't have internet at home for the time being, so it might be awhile before I can post again with pictures.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New  Year!

Wow, I haven't posted since September!  It has been crazy busy around here, but starting to calm down some.  My oldest grandson is in a marching band and most Saturdays were spent watching them.  They got first in the state in their class!  Woo hoo!

I've been doing stitching, crocheting, and beading.  Making some items for Christmas  presents.  I got a new laptop, so should be able to post more often as it's easier again.

Here is some beading I've done recently.  Two pairs of earrings finished, a bracelet (no picture), and started a necklace.   The necklace pattern is from Potomac Beads and it is SO sparkly!

The earrings on the left are diamond duos and seeds.  The ones on the right are superduos and seeds.  Both fun and easy to make!  The right side pair are a free pattern from Deb Roberti at Around the Beading Table.

Mom is doing as well as can be expected.  She's happy and in no pain and I'm glad she is still with us!  Luckily, I was able to get her in a facility that is less than 2 miles from home.  They are taking very good care of her.

My granddaughters are doing very well also.  Cat finished her treatment in May and her hair is growing back.  Emmy had surgery in May and it was found to be non cancerous!  She has healed very well and both girls are keeping their big brother and parents busy!

I will try to get back soon with some stitching updates.   If I don't, I hope you all have a great Christmas and a very safe and happy New Year!

Oops, I did it again

Made another new start.  An SAL from Lakeside Needlecraft by Joan Elliott, Peace on Earth.  I am doing it on 32 count Raw Opalescent with the called for fibers.  So far, it is SO fun to stitch!
I just can't  stop that startitis thing.  :-)

Stash and start-itis

Birch bark and blue - Bernat Pop.  I bought 7 skeins that were on sale $2.49 each
 Starts - on the frame is Ella The Frog Princess by Mirabilia.  Below that on the left is some stash, 32 ct. Blue Spruce linen and 32 ct raw Opalescent.  Next to that is the start of Welcome Summer bt the Drawn Thread and below that is Summer Mouse Scissor Roll by Just Nan.
 Had a Hoosier Stitcher get together yesterday at Fancy Works in Bloomington, Indiana and here is what I got there.  The fabric is French Lace and Raw Natural, both 32 count.
I also have some bead stash, but put it up before I could get pictures.

Mom is hanging in there.  Still doesn't remember or believe what happened.  She wants to come home, but is in no condition to do that.

Stay cool, everyone!
