This adorable Sea Otter is being stitched for Cross Stitch Addicts for Love Quilts. The Quilt will feature Stoney Creek's Sea Babies. That is going to be one adorable quilt. I love stitching on this and it's about half done now. I may just have to buy this book! I am only 10 away from the 50 mark although I may add a few more as I bought some patters intending to do them for others and so far haven't. Most of them will be done eventurally but some of them were not what I expected them to be We have had so much snow in Feb. we broke the records for the amount of snow fall in month of Feb. That is not including the storm we are in middle of now, but it's not a bad storm. I know it's selfish but I am sort of hoping that BSF is cancelled tomorrow. We'll see. My mom is doing much better as far as her confusion. She's almost back to normal. Unfortunately she has to stay in Isolation until Tuesday because of her infection. Hopefully on Tues. the blood test will show it's clear and she can go back to a regular room. We think she'll be happier then. None of us would like being confined to that room we don't blame her for being unhappy there. Well until next time....Happy Stitching! st

It is finished! I finished the pilot earlier this morning. It's a cute piece but I'm glad it's done. Now I'm doing the baby sea otter for Love Quilts. Its a quilt we are doing at CSA for Love Quilts. It's going pretty good and I'm so anxious to see it progress. I saw my mom today and she is slowly improving. She isn't nearly as confused as she was and she didn't choke on her food. So it was a nice visit. Well until next time Happy Stitching!

I stitched quite a bit on this this past week and am happy with the progress. It gets a little tedius at times, especially the plane as there is so much 225 in it but I take a break from it from time to time to do other parts of the piece, that's why it looks a little funny. Typical of PM pieces once I get the hair and face done the rest goes failry easy. I went up to see my mom today not sure what to think. She has been moved to a private room because her bladder infection is back again! We think they need to keep her on the antibiotic longer than what they are. She's also still confused and has a hard time swallowing. She chokes on her food so she doesn't want to eat. My fear is since they don't watch her eat if she chokes when she's eating and no family menmber is there, she may aspirate. She really eats very little. My sister thinks she's being stubborn I really don't know, if I choked every time I ate, I may not want to eat either. I do feel she's sort of mean and I don't like that. But so much of the way she's acting is not her, she'd be so embarassed if she knew what all she was saying. She always was short tempered with dad and I and dad, he just takes it rolls off his sleeve, me, I'll get after her. I sort of did that today when she got mean to dad. Even though we were never close it's hard to see her like this. We never fought or anything but we were never close. We always knew one of these days winter would gang up on us and collect for being so nice to us for one winter and half of the other. We've had so many storms in Feb. We can't wait until winter is over. Is it spring yet? Well....Until next time Happy Stitching!

A few months ago I made this piece for two of my great nephews, (Nick and Chase who live in CO). I had my sister make it into a pillow so she did and then sent it out to the boys. My niece says they really like it and like the fact their grandma made the pillow part. Well, 3 year old Nick does. Chase is a little too young yet but he likes the animals on it. Oh I almost forgot it was Valentines Day so Happy Valentines Day everyone. I had wanted to do a Valentines piece for got involved in other projects instead. In the next day or two I'll update the PM Pilot one. It's moving along fine now that the worst of it is done. We moved my mom to the Nursing Home on Tuesday. She's just really confused but doing okay. She doesn't want my dad to leave her but he has to go home and get other things done sometimes. We are hoping the confusion will past but we're not too optimistic. Perhaps once she settles in she'll calm down a little. Well until next time Happy Stitching!
