Lisa is home!
I went back up the hospital to sit with Lisa this morning and I was able to take her home! She had to send her husband off the doctor, because he has been sick as a dog this while time. Of course that was the time they decided it was okay for her to leave. So I got to take her home and spend some time with her and the doggies. She says she feels much better than she has in a long time, so the surgery must have been a big success. Even her blood pressure is down without any medication. This is wonderful news!
I am working on my Group Correspondence Course Casalguidi and Lavender and using 32 count linen. It has been a challenge to say the least. I would have been better advised to do it on the 28 count. I even stopped by my local needlework shop to pick up some 28 ct linen in a slightly different color. Several people are asking for an extension now, so maybe I will be able to finish it in time. There is a Casalguidi pattern in Issue 41 of Inspirations Magazine and several people in CyberStitchers are talking about doing it as a group project.
Speaking of Inspirations, I plan to take classes with Susan O'Connor again this year! I am so excited at the prospect. It means a trip to Dallas to see my friends and stay with the wonderful Shay, plus great classes.
