Greetings all~ I am so glad that today is Friday, well , in a way. We have company coming tomorrow so that means no putting any of the flylady routine off til the weekend. So I will spend the majority of my day finishing those tasks up. At least it's company I like! So for those of you who have decided to follow along, and I remember that there were a few, do you have a control journal going yet? Just wondering. Remember those zones last all week, don't try and cram it all in to one day. The clutter doesn't happen in one day and can't be controlled in one day. My spell checker today is trying to tell me that flylady isn't a word , or at least spelled incorrectly. Better not tell HER that.
I met a new 'buddy'. She is on the Ties That Bind blog with me and a few others. Her name is Diane and she is so nice. I'm so excited about what I am stitching for her and I hope she likes it. I'll post a picture of it as soon as she lets me know that she has received it. Our partners are not a secret on this particular blog, just what we are stitching. I have been cross stitching as of late, just nothing I can show. :)
After I made my way through several redwork blocks, I thought it would have been really sute done on a tone on tone offwhite. I'm not going to switch in the middle of everything so I will leave it the way it is. Here is another block done. It is the Nasturtium. For fabric in the borders and sashing I was thinking of doing varied red and white fabrics. I am now thinking along those colors still but maybe using Aunt Grace reproduction fabrics instead of florals.
Thank you all for all of your comments yesterday. I will try better to become friends with that nasty word moderation and see how it goes. On another note...I've talked about my dad on the blog from time to time. About all the yard sale and flea market finds he brings me and more recently about him taking Daisy. Well , he had open heart surgery almost 5 years ago. They put him on coumadin to try to regulate his blood. It would either be too thick or too thin. They have a lot of luck using it on patients just not my dad. Anyway for those of you that don't know about it, coumadin has arsenic in it. His heart doctor has had my dad on this off and on all this time since surgery. He was at his primary care doctor for something esle ( dad is almost 78 and has lots of issues) and had specific complaints so the doctor did bloodwork. He found that my dad has liver damage from this medicine so he took him off of it and decided to try something else. He put him on some high power vitamins as well and now my dad will need to come in eery so often to have bloodwork done to see how his liver is doing. Well he went this week to do that and they found a tumor in his arm while tryint to draw blood. Dad's primary care doc is also a surgeon and does many in office preceedures and took the tumor out then and there and sent it off to be biopsied. We are waiting the results. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
Hope you all have a marvelous weekend.
'til next time,
