Yesterday afternoon was spent finishing my Primitive Betty's 'Pure and Pleasant' pincushion with some brown satin ruched ribbon trim. It is filled with a combination of crushed walnut shells and lavender. The lavender smells so wonderful, but its' scent was a bit overpowering. I am happy with the results!
Last Friday I had surgery to repair a bunion and two hammer toes.
Ella and our daughter visited to cheer me up, and Ella laid her Boo-Boo Kitty on my sore foot. Too sweet for words.....
Miss Ella decided that an 'Elmo' Get Well balloon was the perfect gift for Grandma, since Elmo is her very favorite Sesame Street character. She loves all of the Sesame Street characters, but carries her own little Elmo everywhere she goes.
Yesterday was our Wednesday Stitching Group. I was a little sad not to be able to join the girls for our usual stitching and gabbing the morning away. I can't wait til I can go again. Maybe in a week or so, I can ask one of my stitching friends to pick me up, with my crutches and a stool on which to rest my sore foot. Stitchers will do just about anything to stitch together! Right?
Although I am behind on my blog reading, I plan to catch up, as I have plenty of time in my recliner these days. I am so grateful for all of you who visit with me here on my blog, and for the wonderful comments you leave. It means the world to me to know that we are connected with one another through the threads of friendship and stitching.
Blessings to All of You, My Dear Friends!
