And I have been stitching and have a few finishes to show... Funny thing about this... I decided to double-check if I had anything else to share, so went thru my computer picture folders and found some ornaments that I totally forgot about!! I might not have given them to my granddaughters!! Phew!!
On to the show!!
Andrea , from England, sent me this beauty! Her stitching is just beautiful and the finishing is perfect! She just randomly picked me to gift... what a really nice gesture! I appreciate it a lot! Plus she made the card also!! How talented! I have not become that good at scrapbooking! It kind of went to the side in favor of cross stitching!
I really hate that I am posting a month after my last one, but there are reasons. The biggest reason being that we lost Bill's sister to cancer on the 22nd of November. We had visited with her the week before and he/we got to say goodbye at that time. Doesn't take away the immediate feelings of loss, but makes it not as difficult, I think. Because we visited her (and their dog), I had bronchitis by the time we got home... again...so off to my doctor... Then Bill suddenly showed BAD symptoms of diabetes! Off to HIS doctor we went, and sure enough, he has diabetes. We could not go to the funeral because he was in the throes of these problems (extreme thirst, and consequently, lots of peeing!)that would restrict us from an 8 hour drive one way. (Let me now say, I have curtailed his diet, and his 'numbers' are now excellent! Doctor doesn't want to see him until February. Plus he is losing weight--already lost 17 pounds!) So, in a nutshell... LOTS going on... I am ready for a year without crises!
Not sure if I will post before Christmas, so will send out wishes to everyone for a Very Good Christmas! May you make many wonderful memories with family and friends!
