Gadgets and Hearts

First of all, thank you all so much for your kind and encouraging comments on my last blog. My mom is about the same, hanging in there with a diagnosis of not one, but two hairline fractures on both sides of the sacrum. However, we have high hopes her new gadget will make her life much easier.

Note the State red, though totally coincidental. And this scooter is not only functional, but kinda fun.

My own situation is improved in spite of myself and a comedy of errors. There's a great deal of truth to the old saying, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." I won't bore you with the details, but I'm much better and your good wishes really brightened my day. All were much appreciated.

On to stitching, here are two more rounds on the Friendship RR.


Danielle's RR.......


Willeke's RR.... she uses the original colors listed on the design.

Now that I'm caught up, I have great ambitions to stitch on the Travel Sampler and Secret Garden. We shall see.....
Until we meet again. :)

Hope Mom continues her onward and upward progress. Nice set of wheels!
Love to see the Friendship Sampler. This one seems to be moving real slow. I have stitched two since April.

Charlene said...

Now remember, it's your Mom's cart!! Glad you're feeling better, too.

Love the idea of the friendship RR! Wouldn't it be fun to get one going for all the NC and SC stitchers??

Gabi said...

Hopefully your mum will be soon better. Her new car looks great and will give her a greater range of movement. So good to hear that your ears are less ringing.
Your stitching looks great....and did you say you're going to work on your fantastic Travel Sampler??? I'm SO in love with that one

Looks like quite the *ride*! I bet you have had some fun with it too! The RR's look nice. Looking forward to seeing progress on your pieces. Oh, and nice to hear your problem has gotten better. I asked my dad this weekend. He said it's not ringing in his ears, it's like a jet engine in there and it's been doing it for 30 years!

Emily said...

Sorry to hear about your mother, but do hope she likes her new chair. The stitchy hearts are looking good.

Sherry said...

Oh Carolyn, I am so glad that the doctors are able to help your Mom with a diagnosis. I only hope and pray that she will heal up quickly. Tell her the new wheels are awesome! :)
I love seeing the RR's you are doing. Each one has the prettiest colors. Great work.

Kathy said...

PS Thank you about my hair. :) And we have a constant race when it comes to the poo. :) I do my best and 99.9 percent will get the box clean before. LOL

I love the scooter color. I hope you both continue to get well. The Friendship RR is coming along nicely. Your stitching on them looks great.
