W.I.P. Update

Hello everyone,
I've been away for awhile as my Dad had some health issues recently. He twisted wrong getting into his vehicle resulting in a problem with his leg. After several days - and lots of Dr. visits, we found out the problem is 2 blood clots in his leg by his knee. Hopefully the treatment won't take too long.

This fall has been so nice - we've had lots of brilliant colors. (The last few years the colors were more washed out). Hopefully I'll be able to share some pictures in my next post.The robins and cedar waxwings returned to eat up the mountain ash berries. Now we are waiting for some of our winter birds to return.

I did get my exchange piece stitched, but when I started to finish it I realized that I needed 2 threads - they came in the beginning of this week and I got the piece finished today. It will be awhile before I can share it though. 

Since I had to wait for the threads, I picked up my Heaven and Earth Storykeep and added about 1000 stitches.

DH & I celebrated our anniversary yesterday. The sun was shining and the fall colors were so beautiful and we had temps in the 70's - it was so different from our wedding day  15 years ago - we woke up to snow flurries and temps in the upper 40's - thankfully the snow melted before the church service was over and we were able to get several outside pictures.

Have a wonderful day!


  1. Happy Anniversary! Yesterday was ours too! It was our 21st.
    I am sorry to hear of your father's blood clots. Oh dear. My mother has been suffering from her two blood clots behind her knees for over a year.

  2. I hope your Dad is well again soon.

    Happy Anniversary!

    You are making brilliant progress on your HAED.

  3. I hope your dad is doing well ~ sending prayers his way! And Happy Anniversary!! May you enjoy many more years together!
