I'm home from the hospital for a brief moment. Mom came through her heart valve replacement surgery just fine. She is out of intensive care and everything seems to be progressing along quite nicely. Oh, the marvels of modern medicine. A natural tissue pig valve is now functioning in her heart. I am still teary at the thought of all that has happened these last few days. My Mom is this little bit of a thing. She's never weighed more than 95 pounds her entire life. To see her come through this and all that she's endured this year since Mother's Day in May seems nothing short of a miracle. I am so in awe to have witnessed the strength of the human will to survive. To cherish each day of life we have is not optional. Being grateful for all we have is a constant.
I needed a little project to stitch on to calm my nerves while in the waiting room so this little Halloween mat was just the ticket. I cut out the pieces from my wool stash and stuck them on with a smidgeon of glue. I hate battling pins while stitching. This is an easy peasy little pattern from Bareroots.
I'm off to pack up for my trip back to Marshfield Hospital tomorrow. When I get back home I hope to set my selling blog in motion and provide a link to it here. I am so excited about being able to offer some of my work for sale on this WWW. Blessings! Cathy
