Happy New Year!

I know, it's a little late.  Lots going on here.  Both mom and Catriona are doing well, though.
My first finish of the year.  From a Craftways Christmas book, stitched on 40 ct Cream Newcastle, 1 over 2, using the called for DMC.  A fun stitch!
Sorry about the wrinkles.
My new year start is this SAL from AuryTM, called Quaker Fantasies.  I am using 40 ct. Ivory with silver Evenweave from Fabric Flair and Silk Moire threads.  Another fun stitch!

Yikes!  Picture is upside down!
And another SAL I  am doing this year is Roses Blanches by Reflects De Soie.  36 ct. White linen with Dinky Dyes silk in Brambleberry, Peacock, and Charcoal.  Love how it looks so far.
I have some bead stash to show!

Oops!  Can't get it to turn.  There are 15/0 and 8/0 seeds in perm finish gold and silver, 3 colors of chatons, 2 mm pearls, and several colors of iris duos
And I have been crocheting like crazy lately, but I will show that next time.

Well, that's all for now!  See ya!~~~

Ta da!

She is done!  Angel of Spring by Lavender and Lace.  Done on 32 ct. linen with called for fibers and beads.
Picked this up at a flea market this summer.
Bought these last week.
Finished this a while back, too.  Just need to cut out and put a hanger on.

Can't get the picture to rotate, sorry.

Mom and Catriona are both doing well!  

If I don't get back soon, Happy Holidays!

A lot to be thankful for

My granddaughter comes home today from the hospital where she had lung surgery 2 weeks ago.  She is doing very well and won't start back on the chemo until after tomorrow (Thanksgiving).

I will try to keep the rest as short as possible.  Since October 6/7, this has happened to my mom (she's 79) - ER w/severe belly pain, perforated bowel, emergency surgery, colostomy, sent to rehab 2 days, sent back to hospital with pneumonia and sepsis; spent 8-9 days there, back to rehab - came home on a Saturday (11th, I think) and by Sunday night/Monday morning, couldn't walk, low BP (60/40), back to ER in ambulance, everything checked out fine, back home.  Next day, couldn't walk, almost passed out, O2 levels dropped drastically, back to ER in ambulance, CT Scan showed pulmonary embolism.  Spent from Tuesday to Friday in hospital and is finally back home and doing very well!!  So yes, we have a LOT to be thankful for this year!

I'll try to be back sometime over the long weekend with an update.  I have stash to show off!!!  LOL!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
