Progress on Sulphurs

This piece slowed down quite a bit. It took 3 days to get that small butterfly in as I kept having to frog. I finally led the frogs to their own pond I guess as they finally left and the piece is going better now. This is progress after about 24 hours of stitching. It will go to a little girl that chose butterflies and flowers for her quilt. I love this book. It's called "On Butterfly Wings" by Stoney Creek. I have done so many pieces from it and will do more.

I found this week's question to be interesting. I don't remember all of it but it was about filing free CS graphs. If I see one I like I do download it then. I print it off and put it in my file. I have a file cabinet and have the files labeled by subject. Confession, I really don't look in it too often though.

Our Adventure Club program is starting to wind down for the year. We have our parents program next Wed. night and then we have 3 weeks to go after that. The last Wed, Apr. 25 is the carnival. Our two directors have had surgery the last 2 weeks. One had her gull bladder taken out, took things up to fast. (You have to know Mary, she's very energetic and hard to keep down. She came to Adventure club two weeks ago, hurting but was okay, but you knew she had to slow down. Thursday she had a heart attack in the church parking lot. They almost lost her, she had to be revived several times. She is back now but knows she has to slow down, and her husband is making sure of that. Darrin had knee surgery this past Monday. Last night we just practiced for the program. We really should practice more right now it will be controlled chaos. I'm a little nervous about it but I'm sure it'll go fine.

My parents received an offer on their house which they have accepted. Things are just beginning now. They are apartment hunting. They found one my mom and brother like but dad feels is expensive. Personally I think he'll find it's still cheaper than the house. But they need to figure that out.

Today my brother is having sinus surgery. Our family seems to have a lot of sinus problems, our parents have both had the surgery.

Well that's it for now until next time Happy Stitching!

Oh goodness, I hope all the medical problems go away soon! I love the butterfly - it looks like all that frogging was worth it!

You've had a lot going on, I'm surprised you got as much stitching (and frogging) done as you did. I hope things settle down for everyone soon. Your Butterfly looks gorgeous.

As the others have said, hope everything will settle down soon for you all. The stitching is coming along beautifully!
