Unfortunately, Friday I had to cancel my post-cataract vision exam since I can’t sit long enough to complete it. I hope to be able to get new glasses in October. In the meanwhile, I’ll continue to struggle with the drug store ones. They’re not very good, but they’re better than nothing.
For the time being my needlework has taken a back seat. Hopefully in another few weeks we’ll be able to get out the automatic with the three new products. Tom talked me into posting pictures now even though we haven’t finalized the names of two of the products. Here is Mrs. Waddelow’s Needlework Basket. The package includes charts and detailed stitching and assembly directions to make a lined basket with an embroidered bottom panel, two threadwinders, a ruler, a scissors keeper, and a button bag. These designs are companion pieces for Mrs. Waddelow’s Huswif, which was released earlier this year.
On the positive side, we are very excited about the anticipated arrival of our newest grandson, who is due in eight days. I sure am glad that I got most of his birth sampler stitched before going out of commission.
Thank you for all your notes, prayers, and even surprise goodies.
