Come Live With Me...

I started "Come Live With Me and Be My Love" by Carriage House Samplings. Did I all ready tell you all that? My head is still not on straight! We went on a whirlwind trip to Louisiana to visit Louisiana Man's great aunt who was recently diagnosed with inoperable thyroid cancer. She is 92 and sharp as a tack, as they say. It was good to visit with her, but also very sad. We drove down on Monday, visited on Tuesday, and drove back on Wednesday. No, we did not have any seafood. We ate at an Indian restaurant twice though.

I did not get any stitching done on the trip, nor did I (read: "nor was I allowed to") find any stitching stores. Ah, well.

I am stitching this piece with good old DMC, and I really like the colors. It must be that "born-in-the-70s" syndrome flaring up again! The colors are calming, like the fleeting promise of fall in the air here today.

Very, very pretty colors and your stitching always looks perfect!

My mother in law is 92 too and we will be going to Chicago next week to see her. She is also sharp as a tack. Amazing.

Hey, 70's and 80's is not so bad!!! LOL

I'm so sorry to hear about your DH's great aunt. She sounds like a wonderful person. I love your new CHS piece. That one is on my to do list.
