Needlework Update

violets 3Here again is a photo of my slow, but steady, progress on my “violets” needlework.   It has been relaxing to sit in the morning and evening, before and after work, doing a bit of stitching.  The sparkle of the Kreinik blending filament is lovely and the Kreinik braid (which I had never used) is quite delightful as well.  I wish I had more hours to work on it.   Alas the office beckons.

Michael is coming home from the hospital today.   He needs to be flat on his back for two weeks.   But Michelle has rented a recliner chair that reclines flat and also automatically will bring him into a standing position.   Smart lady.   I love her dearly.  Thank you again for your continued prayers….no sign of infection yet.

We are expecting a lot of snow today 4-8 inches.   For Chicago, this is not a big thing.   We are used to having crazy snowy, cold winters.   But my heart goes out to all of you who live in the Northwest, Washington state has had devastating weather.   If any of us bloggers can offer our prayers or support in any way, please let us know.
