Still Waters is Finished

This is a lovely design by Paulette Stewart. This was on my wish list and my DD gave it to me for Christmas a few years ago. I loved every stitch!

I've been absent from blogland for quite a while. You know how it happens! Let's see...there were computer and health issues, and other projects took up my time. I didn't get around to reading and commenting on too many of your blogs. I just didn't have the energy to do much more than the bare minimum, day to day, for a while. But, now I'm feeling better, and am trying to get caught up on things that fell by the wayside for several months, including catching up with my blog reader. I did get some stitching done and finished up some old WIP's.

I've begun my family research once again, and it's an ongoing project. I wish I had gotten information from family while I still could.

I had an interesting day on Mother's Day. My DH had been looking at pickup trucks here and just couldn't find the color that he wanted, so he decided he wanted to go to Oklahoma City to look. He likes to walk the car lots on Sunday without the sales people, and then go back to buy. So, on Mother's Day we drove down to see what they had. I insisted that we take a change of clothes just in case. It would be senseless to go home and then make another trip. So, we went early in the day to beat the heat, and there were already lots of others walking around on the lot. I could tell there was someone walking behind me rather close, and said "Happy Mother's Day"! I turned around, and it was DD all the way from CA!! What a surprise! She was to be in OKC for the weekend for a friend's shower, and she and DH planned the whole thing without me having a clue. We had a wonderful day visiting for a little while! (And, no, we didn't get a truck! That whole thing was just to throw me off!)

Well, it's time for starting dinner. Hope this long post didn't bore you.

What a great finish Mary! I may have to add that to my stash:) That was quite a Mother's Day you had. I wished I'd asked my dad more about his father's side of the family since there is a near complete family tree for his mother's family. He passed away nearly 4 years ago. You'll have to show us pics of Still Waters when you get it framed!

Your finish is always. Oh what a wonderful surprise that your daughter was able to spend Mother's Day with you. :) I am so glad you had a great day.

I am glad you are feeling better and back on the mend again. :)

Looking forward to your future postings and finishes. :)

Blessings always
