Sad day !!

Last night at 11:30, my friend, my husband, my love came to the end of his suffering and left this earth. He is now in a better place with no worries, care, or strife, he is at rest. I miss him now and will always miss him.we have only had seventeen years together. Not enough time to my way of thinking but we laughed a lot together. He was good to me and good to my mother and friends with my son. I wa his wife, friend, care giver, and bottle washer lol. (not to mention all the laundry)

Happy journey my love, be at peace !

A Busy Week !!

Rich was admitted to the hospital again this past Monday and was there until yesterday. He is recovering from pneumonia and we found out that he only has 15 % of his kidney function. That along with 15% of his heart function and 40% of his lung function and he is a sick man. He went back to the nursing home yesterday after a horrible day at the hospital. We were treated terribly. And I had to tranort this sick man back to the nursing home in my car. It is a long story. Needless to say, I was and still am very upset.

Today, he is still feeling unwell and slept most of my visit this afternoon. My girlfriend cam over for supper and we had hamburgers and corn on the cob. Yummy !! We also ad a wonderful visit.

Last evening I was amazed at how lovely the sky was at sunset. Here are some pictures.

Such lovely colors.

As far as my stitching, it has been almost non-existent. I did mange to finish a small part on the RR from Needlecraft Haven and sent it off to the next person.

Here is the entire piece so far

And this is the little bit that I got done, I felt bad that I was unable to get more done.

I did the grey floor and part of the quilt. It was a fun piece to work on.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day !!

Life continues to be crazy around here. Saturday a week ago Rich was in the hospital again for his heart and other things. They discharged him to a rehab nursing home for Cardiac Rehab and to try to change his meds around.i was told that the rehab part was from 8-10 weeks. He seems to be doing well with it so far. His long term outlook is not good I am afraid. His heart function as well as his kidney function is declining. The doctor said he may have to come home on Hospice. So we will cross that bridge when we come to it.

As far as me, I am dealing and running back and forth. I am tired. But like the Energiser Bunny I just keep going. My stitching time have suffered I am afraid. I am doing well to keep up with RR and exchanges that I am involved in. Someday there may be time but until then I do what I can do.
 I am including some pictures of recent stitching and exchanges.

This is the Summer Exchange I sent to my partner with the Needlecraft Haven group. I am quite pleased with how it turned out. I even made the cording that I used around it. I have been trying my hand at Kumihimo braiding and find that I enjoy it.

This is the gift I received from my partner. The berries are beads. So lovely. Now to find a place on my limited wall space to display it.

This is the front and back of a Needlebook I did for an exchange on UK Stitchers another group I am in. This one was a pleasure to stitch and I may make more in other colors. There is a scissor keep to match but that is not finished as of yet stitched but not finished.

This is the inside of the Needlebook. The lining is hand stitched along the edges.

I am also finishing up my part on a RR that I am stitching , I will post pictures another time.

Thank you for stopping by and have a nice day !!
