Well, I signed up for the Friday Night Sew/Stitch In that Heidi from Handmade by Heidi co-hosts. It's my first time and I'm really looking forward to it. It's being held on the 20th and you can follow this link if you want to join in! http://handmadebyheidi.blogspot.com/p/friday-night-sew-in.html I really enjoy following her blog as she is always making something cool!
This past week has been exhausting with lots of things going on and I feel like a juggler with too many balls in the air. So, I haven't got much stitching done, although I did start on my Creation Sampler from Shakespeare's Peddler a couple of days ago as I needed a stress outlet and none of my WIP's were calling my name. The thing I love best about stitching is the calming effect is has on the soul.
One thing that is weighing heavy on my mind is that my MIL has been diagnosed with breast cancer...again...and is having her other breast and lymph nodes removed tomorrow. We are praying that they get it all and that it has not spread further. She also suffers from Bipolar Disorder and this has made things much worse...to the point that it is a struggle to get her out of bed. We visited them on the weekend and she did get up and get dressed to visit with us which was positive. It is very hard on my FIL as well and we are hoping for some good news after the surgery.
One the creative front, I have no stitching progress worthy of pictures. I did however manage to pop back over the antique store I discovered with my friend Laurie the other day. I picked up some flower frogs, some glass candies and a pinwheel crystal glass. Here is the decorative scissor holder that I've constructed with them:
Well, that's all I have for today. I hope to have a stitching update for you very soon!
Take care everyone!
