Bertie found the bunny in the upper left corner of the first photo in London. The bunny is handmade. Bertie wonders if perhaps it is really a cat, and and not a bunny. It sure looks like a bunny to me. What do you think?
Rather than using the threads I used on my model, Bertie decided to use some in her stash. She used a combination of threads from DMC, Gentle Art and Crescent Colours. (Your thread colors look wonderful, Bertie.) The pinkeep is embellished with silk ribbon along the edges. Quite lovely, don't you agree?
I had a pretty good weekend. We made it to the play on Saturday, but dinner out was too much. I also made it to church on Sunday for the first time in many weeks. (I had to take a pillow for my back to both the play and to church.) The one disappointment to the weekend was that I wasn't able to stitch on Garrett's birth sampler--I just couldn't handle the over-one linen thread stitching for the personalization. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow. I've only put in about 20 stitches in the last 6 weeks--can you believe that?
Today was my post-cataract surgery eye doctor appointment. I was giddy with excitement as I ordered my new glasses. (If you remember the eye surgeries were way back in June.) The glasses won't be ready until next week, but at least now I can count off the days.
Thanks for your notes of encouragement. I sure appreciate them. I'm defintely taking things easy--my stamina is really shot.
