I guess you must all be out enjoying the nice weather!

I've been home playing nurse to DH, who had one knee replacement surgery
on May 15, and the 2nd on Monday. He's been keeping me pretty busy! LOL

Anyone have any county/state fairs coming up that you're entering? I
can't think of anything I've finished in the last year to enter! I must
have *something*.......

If worries can cure your sickness, prolong your life, or replace
happiness, then go ahead and worry! If they can't, why worry?

Enjoy every moment of your life...there is no second chance.

We were hoping DH would be having his other knee replaced this summer (first one was done in 2009) but we have to get his diabetes numbers down a bit before the surgeon will operate.

Not much new stitching going on since I'm taking a break from the baby sampler and working on a hand project for the library. I'll be "teaching" a project where we trace a child's hand on a piece of fabric & then they stitch around it. Once it's done, we center it in a wooden hoop, cut the excess fabric off of the back and run a line of glue around it. They have something ready to hang as soon as they get home. :-)

I have a really simple sample made, for younger kids but am working on a more advanced one to entice tweens & teens that has pink fingernails and will have a ring on it. For the "jewel" on the ring I'm going to use a single pierced earring.

I am here reading but haven't done any stitching for a long time. I really
hope to get back to it soon.

I still check in every week, but lately there have been no new posts.

I am still stitching the Ivory-Billed woodpecker, but my daughter and
grands are visiting next week and staying for a month, so the
stitching will be put away. Have to give up my dedicated stitching
spot on the couch.

It has been quiet again Rich. I have not been stitching for a while and
really want to get back to it but to have to put it away when you are in the
mood for stitching is really hard. I would do that when my brother would
come to visit before he passed. I am hoping that by this fall I will be in
the mood again to stitch. It has been quite a while and I love stitching.
Hope to see a little activity here soon.

Cool project!!! Metallic thread? Maybe some sequins or plastic
"crystals"? I have some of those and some various-sized pearls left
over from a dress I made for DD's best friend once upon a time. I also
have a small jar of miscellaneous unknown beads. Want them? I'd be
happy to send them.

Email me, rather than the group, in case I don't get back here soon enough.

Get out those simple patterns, odd pieces of aida and your old hoops and
teach the grands how to stitch, Gramps!

How old are they? My DGD is almost old enough to teach...I can hardly wait!

So sorry to hear about your brother, Sharon.
(((((((((Sharon))))))))

Maybe stitch something in his honor?

Ooo, just had another idea! They can use the beads to decorate the
fingernails!

Here's my current project:

I'm probably about 2/3 done with it.
I'm also knitting another cable afghan.
