Family circumstances have prevented me from getting much stitching completed this week. An ER trip for my mom, followed by my taking care of her and a doctor visit meant I had little time for stitching. I even had to take off from work for a couple of days. I brought my crocheting to her house, but never touched it. She is beginning to feel better now and I managed to get a few stitches done on my Prairie Schooler Santa yesterday.
My son is visiting us for a couple of weeks! He is working on his thesis for his PhD. while getting a Thanksgiving visit in. He hasn't made it to Thanksgiving for a couple of years now. Baker Beach will eventually be a given to him as a remembrance of his time in California at Stanford University. I did get a couple of hundred stitches done last Sunday. Here is an updated picture:
The mail brought some goodies this week. Some I can't show as they will be Christmas gifts, but the rest is for me. I bought the linen and needles to make this pinkeep that Catherine at I Love to Stitch so kindly sent to me. I am looking forward to starting this in the new year.
I am taking time today to join Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. I know when I am stitching that I will relax and let the stress go. Even if I am thinking about family circumstances while I am stitching, the up and down motion of the needle and the evenness of the stitching eases my mind. I will also join the Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape on Monday. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are stitching.
Thanks for stopping by!
