Now for the progress made that weekend:
Lizzie-Kate - Mystery Sampler....
Elizabeth Mary Gandey by Shakesphere Peddler. I made progress on this one - steps -check! Only have the border to complete now and then a small something or another in the middle by my name. Oh yeah, and the trees to the left of the church. When it's finished, I will post some close-up photos for you.
So a couple other updating things - my back, as it turns out, is most likely sciatic. Thank goodness it's not the virus I had last year - which made the back surgery necessary. I am back in physical therapy. Yuck and Yeah - yuck cuz it's not fun, costs copays and is painful. Yeah cuz it's helping, so far.
I have a new phone - taking me some time to learn the sucker. It's a Motorola Droid - Razor Maxx. It's taking me some lessons from my son - WHO moved out a little over two weeks ago. I agree with so many others - empty nest is not easy. It's okay, but not easy. I really, really miss him. He has been working afternoons for so long and with that and school and me working days, I didn't see him a lot but I still saw him. I do hear from him at least every other day. I simply text "hi" and get same back - that's it...but it's something.
So what the heck is going on with the Tigers? I watched them SWEEP the Yankees a couple weeks ago. Thought they had shot at winning the World Series. Tonight, as I type, they are loosing game 4 to the SF Giants. I remember when they won in '84, not so much the '68 series as I was pretty young...but I heard about it alot. My Grandpa and Dad are/were huge Tiger fans. Until his passing, I took my Dad to at least one game a year (from the age of 12, with babysitting $$). It's always bittersweet to watch them now - I miss my Dad - so Dad...how about a little heavenly help...Go Tigers! I am still believeing you can win this one! Update - while proofing Tigers scored 2 runs and are now in the lead - but it is only the 4th inning. Those fans have got to be cold - 42*. And thanks Dad - keep sending the power to win this one!!
Well if I want to stitch a bit, I better get to it. Happy Halloween everyone! I will try to do a shorter post soon - when I wait so long between I have so much to tell you. Welcome to new followers and welcome back to everyone else. Spellchecker not working tonight so I hope I caught all of the errors.
Stitch lots -
