"Wedding" Finish, Season Premieres, and Mom


Yay!! - happy dance here. I put the last stitch in "Wedding" for my DD and her DH tonight while watching the much awaited season premieres of NCIS, The Mentalist, and Without a Trace. I'm not a huge fan of too many programs, but I absolutely love NCIS with its wit and humor. I was totally impressed with the new show "The Mentalist". Engrossing and I've always loved WAT.
I'm pleased with how Wedding turned out & I hope they like it (looks like there's a shadow, but it's just the lighting). Hope to have it framed soon. I'd ordered the mats and frame before the wedding, so I'm hoping it won't take too long. Now off to stitch on the retreat pieces. :)
My DH is out of town this week, so it's just the dog, the cat, and me. It's busier than expected. I've gotten right much stitching done, and ended up taking my mom back to the dr. today - fluid build-up that started affecting her breathing. He's getting her straight, so she's feeling better. Tomorrow should definitely be easier for her. I thank God for good doctors and health personnel - just like any other profession, you never know how it'll be.

Congrats on your finish, Carolyn. I listened to all those shows last night, too, while stitching. I couldn't tell you what the plots were for any of them though. LOL

The sampler is beautiful. I'm sure it will be treasured.

I too LOVE NCIS. How about that ending? :)

I am glad the doctors were able to help your Mom. I sooooooo understand that issue. :) My Mom suffers from congestive heart failure, copd and other health problems. So like I said I understand how worrisome it can be when your parent is ill. :(
