It has been a very eventful weekend. My mom has been struggling with pneumonia. She was in the ER last friday and wouldn't be a guest of the hospital. She went home and I made several trips to her house when I could. This past friday morning she called me, "I don't think I'm going to make it through the day." She did. I did have the ambulance take her to the hospital since she was very weak. I decided I wasn't going to chance getting her down three stairs to the car. By that evening, two respiratory therapy treatments, a bag of antibiotics it was a near miraclous cure. She can be a bit dramatic. I don't doubt she was sick, I'm sure she was feeling awful and the ride in the ambulance was good. It was the talk of the school, kitty corner from her house. So, I have been a tiny bit busy but, did accomplish a few things. I am telling you, cross stitch is my sanity.
I did finish the LHN Poisettia House....I would not call this a small. I want smalls to be small enough to put into a little basket. This IS the size of the basket. It did turn out cute. The other side of the pillow fabric really is a good match and was a little piece from the stash. It is about 6x6 inches. And it took longer than what I would consider a small. To me a small is something you can easily finish it a day or two. This took more like two weeks.
Thanks for stopping. Keep on stitching. It is the only thing that keeps me out of the funny farm.
