Gorgeous Day With Family! And New Embroidery Piece!

I love the bright colors and textures in this latest of my embroidery endeavors!Saturday we drove to Stockton to visit my uncle and aunt again.
Uncle Harry looked terrific! He's off of blood thinner so no more red blood bruises under his skin.
He has no pain now and he is walking with his walker more.
He said when he can't sleep at night he just counts his
great grand children...he has seven and two on the way!
DH did the driving while I embroidered in the car. The sun was out, the scenery was green and lush with wild flowers, goats, cows, and sheep!
Aunt Mimi has a wonderful sense of humor. She hardly repeated herself at all. She did tell me several times how many suits she knit herself when she was in high school! She had good memory for many things from the very distant past. We laughed about many things
and it was just such a blessing to be with them and to have them almost
their former selves, but not bad at all for 91 yrs of age. (Mimi turns 91 in May).
I hope I look this good at 91!!!
Here I am tickling Mimi to make her laugh!
So much love in this visit!
Happy Sunday to you.
What will you do with this beautiful day?
Enjoy it to the fullest.
Each day we have is so precious (to me).

  3. This is a beautiful little piece you you embroidered. I love flowers anyway but your beads make it special. Looks like a really nice family visit. Glad they were almost back to normal. Yes we do need to take each day & enjoy it to its fullest. You look great & I like the hair cut.. Unbelievable that your aunt is in her ninties. wow.

    Cris, you noticed the hair cut too! Yes, Mim and Harry both look Marvelous!

    Diane, I actually did this particular embroidery in the recliner while watching TV. But I do embroider in the car too. And it comes out pretty nice I think. ;-)

  7. What a beautiful post combining your love of your art with the love of your family. It is great that both are doing well. We went birding to day then I putzed around the garden before coming in for the evening. It is too pretty to be inside but I am pooped.
