First off some news on the Kramer hospital stay:
Yesterday we found out that he’ll likely be in the hospital a minimum until Tuesday. They were giving him two strong IV antibiotics. They took one away yesterday and will see how he does. If he does okay, they will take the other one away today. They will monitor him after that and assess then. That bring us to Tuesday. As frustrating as it is to not be at home, we both don’t want him here if there is a possibility he will tank again. We want to put this episode COMPLETELY behind us.
I opted to come home…mostly because Kramer pushed me too. I’ll do childcare Monday and if things go as planned part of Tuesday then Kelli will come and finish up childcare for Tuesday.
Little by little we are getting closer to the two of us both being home.
Now onto the regular post.
I did get some stitching time this week…
It was all thanks to the hospital stay in Lacrosse for Kramer.
It looks like I got a lot done but it really wasn’t a lot. Two of the pieces were nearing the end so I did some quick stitching and they were finished.
A blog reader had sent this Lizzie Kate pattern to me and I was tickled. It certainly fits for what we are going through now.
I changed the colors a bit by making the pink more red and the blue moved to a darker blue. I used a scrap piece of fabric that another blog reader gifted to me. I started it too far to the right and ended up with just barely enough room to fit the whole saying on. I’m finishing it myself so it isn’t a bit deal.
I do really like this. Thanks so much to you blog readers that gifted the goodies. It kept my mind from worrying…
This one was almost finished. I only have the house left. My fabric is pretty dark and the house was supposed to be the same color as the moon. I didn’t think it would show up so I just left it thinking I’d come up with some other color. Kelli suggested blue. What do you think?
I don’t love it. It’s too overpowering as it’s so dark. UGH. It’s stitched. I might unstitch it at some point but it won’t be now. I am not feeling like unstitching.
For those of you who don’t cross stitch, I think unstitching is way worse than ripping out a seam that was sewn while quilting.
So with those finished, it was sime to start the next one…I’m on to “Simplicity”.
Once I got home I pulled out the two finished ones and started looking for something new to pot into my bag. “Patience” is the next virtue and I pulled an easy small “be ever thankful” piece.
That chart I found at the thrift store for 25 cents. I’m thrilled with the bargain and am eager to start stitching it.
Thanks all I’ve been up to in the sewing/stitching/crafting department.
