Here is a photo from the baby shower. Would you believe we didn't get a single photo of Stephen looking at the camera? Here he is holding the cutest stuffed giraffe that I found during my recent stay in Amish country. Michelle is holding one of the 3 hats that my sister-in-law, Julie, knitted.
At the very bottom, you might be able to see where I backstitched "Stitched with love by Ellen Chester". This information won't show when the sampler is framed.
I've had to limit the amount of stitching I'm doing during my recovery period. So with the baby sampler almost done, I spent time this afternoon charting a new sampler design that will be released in the fall along with Mrs. Waddelow's basket and the hornbook needlebook.
Tomorrow I have an eye exam. The good news is that the number of eye drops I have each day is down from 9 to 6, and tonight I don't have to wear the eye patch to bed. Of course, starting next Monday, I'll be wearing the patch again and using 15 drops a day between my two eyes. Good thing they gave me a check-list to keep track of things.
