A Special Surprise
Well, we didn't get the terrible ice storm predicted, thank goodness! But I had to substitute! It was a good day though. It was the same class as Wednesday; so they knew they couldn't get away with anything with me. The picure above is an update of A Lady's Pincushion. My stitching slows down when I substitute. I was so tired both days. I couldn't stitch much - had to take a nap!
And this is an update on The Juggler. I am going to backstitch this much before I do the balls and stars and border. I need to get this finished soon!
DD really surprised me Thursday night. She gave me a late birthday present. It was a "movie" she had made for me. It was a slide show of pictures of her, my son, and my parents set to music. The pictures were of the kids as they grew up and some of the last pictures of my dad. The songs were songs about mothers and one of the songs that was played at my son's funeral: Heaven by Eric Clapton (I'm not sure of the name.) It is the most precious gift I have ever received. She and I sat side-by-side and watched it on the computer holding hands. I boo-hooed the whole time! It totally drained me - it was so emotional! Then we hugged forever! Teenagers can really surprise you sometimes!!
Got to go! My mom is coming today to inspire me to go through all this junk and clear out some space for Katie's Dad to move in!! lol Have a happy, love-filled day!
