I am still trying to get back to 'normal' -- though, what is normal these days? I want to thank everyone that has prayed and is still praying for my son Jon. He is still not able to chew, thus he cannot really eat good. There has been some improvement in that he can open his mouth a bit, so he shoves in soft foods that require little chewing, and basically swallows it. But pretty much still on a liquid diet. I have asked around, and this kind of thing just takes time to return to the way it was. I still believe in praying, if you are so inclined...
Meanwhile, I have a finish or two to share... I finished a birthday piece for Jon before the day, but didn't finish-finish it until last week. Hard to figure what to do with it, since he doesn't like hanging pictures... but I played it safe and did a simple little pillow. He can just place it somewhere... Anyway, this is called 'Pretty Little Chicago' by Satsuma Designs. I have not stitched a piece with so many color changes in quite some time... but I was determined.
simple cotton ticking on the back... sorta masculine...
And then I finished the Spring is in the Air piece by Maryse Dupont. Made it into a simple pillow also, because there is a lot going on already... But I am still thinking about further embellishments...
I changed the colors of the large circle with writing in it... more to my tastes... purple of course!
And a simple little pink flower back fabric...
Yesterday I stitched a quick little piece for a friend, but... I may rip out the one word in green... just cannot decide what color to do it again...or maybe I will just leave it off!! It is Choose Joy by Trilogy
The frame was a thrift store find for less than a dollar! Love it!
I started a little patriotic piece last night. I may finish it in a day or two... I have a really SPECIAL finish in mind, so stay tuned.
That's it for now... I gotta get showered and get moving on my day!

I have been and will be absent from blogging a little while. My son is home after a week's stay in the hospital, and needs care with meds and dressings and such. So I figure after the drains are removed this coming week, maybe he will really improve. No way to know... bad bad bacterial infection in his left jaw. Cannot open his mouth to chew, but maybe it will ease up... Appreciate your prayers!
