Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all my fellow stitching moms!

I spent part of the day stitching! As I mentioned in one recent post, I am starting to find a bit more time to stitch, and Floral Rondel is showing much progress.

I love the layered, couched patterns used in the three blue flowers, but I've only got one more petal to go on these. The center flower is almost done as well, but I ran out of thread. I couldn't believe it. I've only got that tiny bit at the top left to stitch, but the spool of light pink is empty. Judy Souliotis is taking pity on me and very generously will be sending me more so I can finish!

After those two petals, I've got a bit more brick stitch to do on leaves and curliques. With a bit of backstitch and couched outlining, I'll be done! I'd like to finish this piece before the end of the month.

********************************************
Erin update: The little lady is now up over 11 pounds (unofficially, on my bathroom scale), and we go back to the orthopedic office on Thursday to figure out the next steps for her hips.

Oh - and she's smiling for real now:

Thank you. That picture of Erin with the big smile just made my day. I just love when you post things about her. I was so happy when she got here and out of danger. I just almost feel like she is one of my grandbabies.
