Hello everyone. It has been a while since I posted and I continue to stitch on the Historic Countries Sampler. At present I am in the Holland section and have just completed a "giant" boat - this is relative of course. The whole sampler is quite a giant! Hopefully this weekend Holland will be finished and I plan on having a short break to stitch a small gift for a friend.
In between the crosses, I made this apron which the HDHBEM kindly modelled for me. She was really shy this time:-)
And now for a complaint. At Christmas Mother gave me this tin of chocolates - "I know you will love the tin dear, even if you don't eat the contents."
At that stage I had strong resolve and put the tin away waiting for a time when others would eat the contents for me. Such a large tin = so many chocolates = would be great for a plate when I am rostered on tea time at church.
So last Sunday I was on the roster and I opened the tin of chocolates - well! What a disappointment! Wouldn't you feel cheated if you only got less than half a tin full!
We won't be buying these again, tin or no tin!
Next week the HDHBEM has the cataract removed from her right eye and will then become the QuarterBlindHalfDeafElderlyMother (QBHDEM) and will be very happy! At present we put in drops morning and night and live with the anticipation of success (even though the opthalmologist said the macular degeneration will mean limited improvement). I will have the day off to take her to the hospital and collect her again three hours later - and what a blessing, the hospital is only a few minutes walk from the needlework shop. How fortuitous- I will love having my mind preoccupied with stitching treasures during the wait:-)
Have a great evening everyone.
