I promised you all that I would show you my quilt when I got it finished. A lot of stitches and here it is my latest project hot off my embroidery hoop. I am pleased with how it turned out, but my pictures never do it justice. It has a happy home to go to and she is thrill with it.She has been able to watch the progress as I worked on it. The kittens and birds look so real. I finished it last night after I went to supper with my kids before my oldest left.
Our oldest son had come home for grand jury duty. He had drove a lot of hours because he worked on Saturday. He got up yesterday to go to the federal courthouse to learn that if they had known he was working out of town he could have been excused. Plus the guy that was suppose to have a jury trial decided that he didn't want one at the last minute so he felt like he came home for nothing. We went to what I called Brunch after he got back in town so I got to spend time with him. All of the kids and us went to supper last night so I got to spend a little more time with him. Time was much to short and he left this morning to go back. It was back to Louisiana and then to Texas for a month working at an oil refinery. He was going to have to shave his beard because the job requires him to be clean shaven. It was good to see him no matter how short the visit was. He is suppose to let me know he made it back o.k.. The weather wasn't going to be the greatest for him. He promised that he would stop if the roads were back and find him a motel room.
I have been spending time at the nursing home with hubby to make sure things were going o.k. He stayed in bed this morning and ate his breakfast because it was so cold. The walls don't have any insulation. You can lay your hand on the walls and feel the cold. They still have several people that are still trying to get over being sick. So far we have been lucky.
Our weather has been like a roller coaster, but we haven't had what they have got all around us. I am hoping to be able to go to the city Thursday for my doctor appointment, but I will just have to wait and see. We are suppose to have rain, sleet and snow mix tomorrow. I will just pray and keep my fingers crossed.
I have been trying to decide what I want to do for my next project. I just know the fingers have to stay busy for sure to help me keep my sanity. I have another baby quilt partially done I may just go ahead and finish that one.
All of you in blog land are very special to me. You give me the strength that i need to accomplish what I have to do. Your comments are greatly appreciated. I know that the man upstairs is there with us every step of the way. Life is like a roller coaster it has it's ups and downs. Sometimes we can be a little discouraged, but we have to pick ourselves up and continue on because no body is going to do it for us. I try to keep a positive attitude, but I can tell you the tears have fallen after learning that he would be living in a wheel chair and being told very bluntly that I wouldn't be able to take care for him. Luckily, I didn't cry in front of him, but I did when I got home. It is your comments and prayers that helps me so very much.
Stay warm and take care. Prayers and hugs are for those in need.
