The other day during my most stressed out moments of having my face swollen on the one side and my jaw pain, I received a package in the mail from my good friend Robyn. Just totally out of the blue and it contained this:
She knows me so well and she knows my greatest addiction is a good cup of coffee. It was a lovely surprise and meant so much at such a bad time.
I've also been getting emails from my wonderful blog friends just to see how Cliff is and how I'm doing. Man you have no idea how much that means to me and how lovely it is to get your emails out of the blue.
I'm back on my treadmill again and I believe that is helping with the stress and I'm working hard to shake off this funk. Hang in there with me please while I'm temporarily out of order.
One thing I have been doing is embroidery and lots of it. I been working furiously on a couple of door hangings for my Aunties for their March birthdays. They're both the same embroideries, but different colors. One Auntie is getting a pink/burgundy embroider and the other is getting red work. I think they turned our really cute:
|Redwork with red and white border fabrics|
|Looks the same as the redwork, but it's actually a burgundy thread|
I have to say I don't think I can repeat these embroideries for a while, I burned out on this design.
Today is my wonderful hubbies birthday. He is 75 years young. We went out to lunch at a favorite restaurant of ours. He and our friend Ken had wine and I was really bad and had a blood orange martini. Whoohoo!! Oh yeah it was good. It was a nice time and yet low key too. Cliff is still dealing with the fatigue from his last infusion so we knew it had to be something easy on him. His brother and sister-in-law sent him a book for his birthday that we both are looking forward to reading:
Everyone, including CR's daughter has told us what a good read it is. So if you are looking for a book to read, give this a try.
I'm working on a wall hanging using some embroideries I did in the summer. Hopefully I'll have pictures for you soon.
Happy Stitches and Hugs,
