Forgot to update on Family...

Well, things are not entirely better in my daughter's family... but... there have been changes. Their middle daughter DID have the appendectomy, and it was determined that she had been having Chronic Appendicitis after all, by all the scar tissue they had to remove! The surgeon was amazed... she had never seen that before! No signs of endometriosis, and she is on the mend. I went down there to stay a few days, as my son-in-law had to go to a two week training! The other girls seemed to be doing better also... Oldest was proud to show me the scars on her wrist... ick! Youngest... well, she is big hormonal, so... you can guess the rest! Like a seesaw... And last, but not least, son-in-law's father was found to have a tumor on his pancreas, and had to travel from Montana to Denver for the surgery. This was during the time of the granddaughter's surgery...(With the surgery, he would live another 1-2 years; without... 6 months) We heard he went through it okay, but that was it. It has been two weeks, and we just heard that he has an infection either on a cyst or in a cyst and needed to have more surgery. Don't know if he was still in Denver or back home... Have heard nothing more. So, if you are a praying stitcher, please pray that he gets the care needed, and also pray for my son-in-law, as this is really hard for him... He loves his Dad dearly. But he has the same tendency to withdraw to himself in times of trials...

Thanks so much!

Just a couple of small finishes to share...

I have been busy with other stuff of late, so not much stitching has been done. I do have two finishes to share...

First is the next LHN Virtue Sampler, for March... Peace. Stitched, not yet finished. NONE are finish-finished yet, tho I have all the supplies. Just need some time!
Then, entirely on a whim, I pulled out Just Nan's Bluebird Sampler and completed that! I have seen others' finishes of it, and I just wanted it for ME! I skipped the back stitched letters... not my fave!



I have made a start on a piece for my younger daughter. She likes Orcas...

This is the chart....but...

I am doing the Orcas on the bottom left, here on the back cover...

So, that's really it! I can't believe it, but... that is all I have to share!

Hugs,
