Good evening everyone.
Progress Report Number One: Mother's first eye surgery went well and here is a snapshot (taken very much against her will!) to prove the point. One ear is yellow with iodine and of course one eye is covered with a white patch but otherwise all is well. Many thanks to you all for your good wishes and prayers - from both QBHDEM and me!
Progress Report Number Two: The Historic Countries Sampler has officially left The Netherlands. Several times while in that country the "frogs" came to visit but persistence paid off and that section is now complete - well apart from the gap left to put the date I finish this piece. Instead of some random date selected from family history I opted to rechart that section to put the start date and (one day) finish date. The blue triangle portion at the lower left is the first of the Spanish section which appears to be smaller and less complicated than the Dutch section. Here's hoping! (Hopefully this picture should be clickable)
Progress Report Number Three: Stash Enchancement! While Mother was in the gentle hands of the Opthalmologist I paid a visit to The Ribbon Rose and found a beautiful piece of white linen for my planned Pulled Thread piece, also some needles and a DMC I need to finishe my Christmas Prism. What was most gratifying was my loyalty card was full and meant I received $25 off the price. Oh Happy Day!
So all in all a very successful day at Chez Nous! Have a great evening everyone.
