As I mentioned last week, we have been through a horrific family emergency. My dear hubs has been in the hospital for the past 6 weeks, 4 of which were in the ICU. Now that I know he is coming home, I can talk about this a little.
To keep my sanity, I had my hand sewing with me to fill the rest of the 50 minutes of the hour when I couldn't be next to him. I spent many nights sleeping, or resting anyway, in a waiting room and depended on my handwork to keep me balanced. This week, I have started to get the embroideries done up into finished products. Here is a picture of the first three!
I did a heart because my husband had two heart attacks while in the hospital and then a quadruple bypass. Just seemed appropriate, don't ya think?? The precious pink pillowette is silk ribbon embroidery on dupioni silk with a scrumptious tassel fringe and filled with polyfil and lavender. Then two fabric postcards ready for the mail! You will find these on my website this coming week.
I am thankful that the surgery was successful and hubs will be home this week. My thanks for all the prayers and positive thoughts that were sent up for us.
