Last week I finished up the pillowcases with the names on it for my sister's family, and also finished up the last stocking as well. They came out pretty good. I am amazed that I continue to find more and more ways to improve on the embroidery the more and more that I do. But I can say this...they are still not 100 percent perfect [maybe "perfect" doesn't exist in the embroidery world?!] but it has gotten quick and good enough to satisfy me "most" of the time, lol. Here's a quick glance at the finished projects....
|THE VELVET STOCKINGS [soo glad to be done with velvet, lol!] AND A CLOSER LOOK AT ONE OF THE CUFFS|
|KATIE BUSY CUTTING HER STRIPS|
|FINISHED BLANKET....IT WAS SOO CUTE AND COZY. PERSONALLY I AM SOO LOOKING FORWARD TO THE DAY WHEN CURLED UP IN ONE OF THESE IS APPEALING, LOL SURELY IT'S COMING, RIGHT?|
Hubby is recovering VERY well from his little surgery and may be getting some of the stitches out tomorrow depending on what the doc thinks. The report came back pretty good. Pretty much what they were expecting. Our doc is feeling VERY strongly that nothing else will have to be done to treat this, but is going to send him to an oncologist to let him make the final call. He says there is no rush however, and wants him to heal and get the stitches out before that happens. I will be glad to get the oncologists word that this is indeed over with I am not going to lie. Our colds are almost completely gone as well. Just a little lingering cough for me. I sooo rarely get coughs [it's been close to six years believe it or not!] that truthfully I'd forgotten how draining they can be. But hopefully soon I will be completely over it. Soo typical that hubby started AFTER me and is over it completely already, but truthfully I am grateful as like I said he is the one who has to work.
I have a lot of sewing planned as usual for the week. I made a couple of pillowcases for my niece and her boyfriend this week-end, and got some christmas pj's cut out for my new mexico grands. Still got to get on that last advent calendar too. Sooo much sewing......sooo little time, lol
Oh! and I can't forget the promised REALLY BIG NEWS! There is a new Class in our family! My middle son John and his fiance [now wife!] decided to just run to Vegas and get married this week-end. They have been trying to work out the details of a wedding for a while, but have run into several issues along the way. Bottom line is this is a second marriage for both of them, and they didn't really want to spend much money on a big wedding anyway. I think I have mentioned that my son lost his first wife to a sudden and unexpected death almost 3 years ago now, and I am sooo happy he has found such a wonderful girl to share his life with again. Jessica is nine years younger then John so she ought to keep him on his toes. They are thinking about starting a family right away, and considering John just turned thirty nine years old I think it's probably about time to be getting on that, lol. So who knows, maybe there are still MORE grandbabies in our future. We will get together to celebrate this marriage soon I am sure. There was a time where I might have been really upset to have missed witnessing this event, but honestly I am just glad they are happy and moving along on their lives.
