Tuesday Evening

Well Here I sit ,playing on the computer again.  I try to limit myself or I would sit here until I am covered by cobwebs.  LOL  I am addicted to some of the games. sigh !!!
   The weather here has been hot and humid.  We have had to use the A/C for the last several days because of DH's breathing.  It is supposed to cool off tonight and stay cool for the next couple of days thankfully.  At least that will give the ol' A/C a break.
    I have been doing odds and ends around here and trying to keep up with the hated housework and laundry.  Why oh why do we have to eat and wear clothes ???  it would save so much time and energy, not to mention money, if we could do without both.  I know, my cheese is slipping off my cracker.  LOL
    My stitching has been progressing in spurts and starts.  I did manage to finish Fiori from the Marquoir German group and also another part on their See the Stars.  I have been diligently working on Mandala so I can get it finished before the deadline of end of August. Here are the pictures of Fiori and See the Stars.
This next one is for my aunt, more my friend than my relative, she is a very special person and is having a Mastectomy tomorrow because of Breast Cancer.  I am hoping that this will help to cheer her up.  I still need to finish it into and ornie or a small wall hanging, I will try to get that done later this evening.

Well here are my offerings. I missed the new moon last month. LOL  My container is starting to fill up. I will have to start packing it down at this rate or buy a bigger container again.

Week end Again

Well it has been a quiet and lazy Saturday here. The weather has been overcast and chilly -- hard to believe that it is Mid-June. So we stayed snug inside. Our supper was take out. I told you I was lazy today !! LOL I think the only thing I did around here was make the bed after we got up. I've spent the day stitching and playing on the computer.
I have two finishes. I finally finished the back of an afghan I crocheted for my Father for his Birthday. Now I just need to get it in the mail, as we are not going to be able to go down as planned.

I also finished a Mini Quaker Sampler from the German Marquoir Group. It was fun to stitch and I am quite pleased with the colors that I choose. I wasn't sure at first but I like the look of the finish.

This next piece is also from the Marquoir group and has only one more section and it will be complete also.

In Friday's mail I received my stitched card from Lynn as part of the Stitched Friendship Exchange through Jayne's Attic Forum. Her stitching is so lovely and I also received a nice chatty letter telling me about herself. Definitely a fun exchange.

An Eventful Weekend

Well life does have it's twists and turns. I am no longer working as of Friday. I thought it best to take early retirement and stay home with DH. Evidently it was a good idea as we spent yesterday evening from 5:45 Pm until 11:45 PM in the emergency room yesterday. DH said he pulled a muscle in his back on Friday and last evening he was in so much pain that he had tears in his eyes. He told me that the pain was radiating around to the front of his chest so just to be on the safe side, we went to the hospital. I know he was feeling bad when he asked me to take him as he hates the hospital. Thankfully it was not his heart though. I can't figure what he did but when he woke up from his nap on Friday he was complaining. The MD said it was a muscle strain of the muscle right under his shoulder blade and that is why it hurt him so bad when he coughed or took a deep breath. The gave him some Percocet and an IV anti-inflammatory drug - Toradol. They sent him home with the Percocet but was did not want to give him anymore anti-inflammatory drugs because of his impaired kidney function. He is doing better today. Still hurting but not as bad. It always seems to be something. smile !!!

Today was a nice relaxing day. I made a nice roast chicken dinner for us and even managed to get some stitching done. I have to say, it is nice to know that I don't have to go to work tomorrow. i finally finished up my ornie for the Brides Tree SAL, I am behind so here is my April Bunny. I think he is cute.

I also finished my part in a RR for Jayne's Attic. I just love the butterflies. here is my part and the whole RR piece. I think she said the designs were from UK's Crazy for Cross Stitch. I just love the colors

This piece is the Lavender Morning by Chatelaine from the October, 2006 issue of Gift of Stitching magazine. I finally managed to put the beads on it and now all I have to do is frame it. I changed some of the bead and floss colors. So I guess you could say I made it my own.

This last one was a fun one. "Whatever !!!" is my answer to everything, it drives my DH mad. LOL He kind of growled at me when he saw what I was stitching. I told him I was going to hang right in front of his eyes so he would never forget it. I won't repeat his comment. ROFLMBO !!!
