I have been looking for one of these ornament trees for quite a while, and I got this one for 70% off!!! WHOOO HOOOO. I am really happy with it, but I sure am going to have to get on the ball to stitch up a lot more ornaments. DD and DGD stopped by this morning, and DD really liked it but DGD liked the little sad looking Christmas tree better. At three, she is a little too honest and told me I had too many empty spots on this one - LOL!
This last Thursday I had to make another trip to the OR. There was some significant scar tissue build up left from last year's mastectomies which had to be removed. It was really weird because the surgeon told my DH that I would be in a great deal of pain from this surgery, and that instead of sending me home like planned she was going to keep me overnight to do some pain management. Only thing was, I have had very little pain and some serious pain meds. So, I got to go home on Thursday, and I haven't had to take any pain meds since Saturday morning. Go Figure. I have to go into the surgeon's office on Tuesday to get the drainage tube removed, and I can't wait to talk to her about why there was so much discrepancy.
But, I am going to use the surgery as an excuse for not having any stitchy pix for you today. I am going to try really hard to finish Spring Basket tonight and then try and finish it and Bloom into pillows tomorrow. Wish me luck.
Since I don't have any stitchy pix, I thought I could brighten your day with pictures of my lily bed. It just started exploding with blooms this last week. In the fall I have to do some serious thinning of the bed. It is hard to believe that this bed started out with just one or two plants of the different colors! You can't really see in these pictures, but there are a ton of the yellow stellas in this bed, and I think we are just going to try and take most of them out this fall. That should give the others more space to bloom.
Well, I need to start stitching if I am going to finish Spring Basket tonight. Thank you so much for stopping and visiting my little blog. Your comments really mean a lot to me. I am always so impressed at having people from all over the world visiting me. How cool is that?? So, until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!
