First of all, thank you all so much for all your wonderful notes, comments and hugs!!!! They are so needed and so appreciated. Nothing new is happening. No call from the doctor this week so we have moved on to stay with our two grandsons again. We want to see them enjoy Halloween. Our son is going deer hunting next week and we want to be here to help our DIL with the two boys. They are sweet fellas but they are a handful lol.
Anna had a meme on her blog about showing the contents of your stitching bag. I made a comment that I wouldn't show mine as I had two large bags. Well, sweet Anna, dared me to . My only excuse is that they are packed for travelling.

And there you go!!! Now, you know why I am embarrassed.
I have done a lot of stitching these past two weeks. With not being in our home, I don't have a lot of house work or other chores to do. When I am stressed, stitching helps so much. And so, here's what I have done
HAED - Peacock Lagoon - we now have a moon minus a few confetti stitches
Mirabilia's Royal Holiday - nice progress even with using Whisper
My Christmas stocking - the second stocking is complete. One more to go.
And a new piece - I'm working on a quilted wallhanging called Postcards from Canada. There are 25 blocks. I have completed the first 10.
That's it for now. Happy Halloween!!!!!! one and all.
