Two bluebirds, actually three

Happy Sunday!!!!

It feels so good to be home this weekend.
My dad was at the hospital for six days, long story short, he had two stents put in his left side of his heart. He feels so much better then he has for awhile now. There was three days last weekend that I didn't even open my laptop. I tried to stitch the first two days waiting and waiting at the hospital for test, but I messed up and frogged so much I just gave up, the frogger won, lol

I did get Needles & Pins Heart Pinkeep finished last night

By With Thy Needle & Thread
stitched on 36ct cinnamon roll linen
The oil can is still in waiting for it to be mounted, that's another day.
I just want to relax and stitch

I also finished Scare A Crow early this morning

I dug out one of my oldest UFO
Monopoly gameboard, I plan to put a few stitched in this afternoon
Yes! stitched on Aida

I bought a couple embroidered bluebirds in frames at a secondhand store a long time ago. I stumbled across them the other day. I took them out of the frames that had old cards and brown tape. I threw them in the washing machine, ironed them, which brought out their old musty smell. Now they are two pillows. I own one and Brianna has the other one.


Well! Thats all for today


I'm going to make some lunch, stitch down


and watch my recorded shows I missed last week

What a beautiful bluebird! Glad that your Dad is doing better. It is nice to have a weekend to stitch... after seeing that monopoly board I know I have that somewhere started in my stash too from many moons ago!
Happy stitching!

Hello Ranae

These stents are a life saver and several of my friends have had them put in - they are 'new people' too.
Such a blessing for your Dad to feel so good again.

Love all your beautiful stitching Ranae.
Isn't it wonderful to find old work lovingly stitched by someone in a different time and giving 'new life' to those pieces too!
Bluebirds have such special meaning too.

Wishing you a happy week

Such sweet little blue birds - I love them! Glad you dad is feeling better. My DH had 2 stents about 2 yrs ago and feels so much better. Take care!

Love your Needles and Pins piece. Can't wait to see it with the oil can.

Hope your Dad is feeling better. Enjoy your evening -- hope you get lots of stitching time!

I hope your dad is recovering well from his stent surgery. Sounds like it was a scary time for a while there. I'm glad all is better now. Love your stitching finishes! And the blue birds -- so sweet!

Deb said...

Oh goodness, your Monopoly game board is like a blast from the past. I started one a long time ago (on Aida of course) and never finished it. Your bluebird looks wonderful, and continued wishes that your father improves each and every day.

Carol said...

I'm sure you were very scared for your father, Ranae--that is great that he is feeling so much better now...

Your bluebirds are wonderful--especially love the one you stitched :)

Glad to hear that your Dad is feeling much better. Mine had stints put in too and it made a world of difference.

All your bluebirds came out just beautifully! Congrats on finishing another HR block :o)

Annie said...

Pretty stitching as always. Beautiful bluebird. Haven't thought about that monopoly game board in some years! Have fun with it.

So nice to hear that your Dad is much improved. That should make all that frogging go down a bit easier.

Laura said...

I am glad to hear that your Dad is doing okay! That must have been hard for him and stressful for you! Hope he continues to recover.

Your stitching is all so cool!!!! and I love, love, love the bluebirds! What a great idea you had!!! I am going to look for little things like that to turn into pinkeeps!!! Thanks for the idea.

Hope you have a good week! I just got my Pineberry Lane project from Country Sampler and am SO EXCITED!!! Did you get yours??

Julie said...

Get well wishes for Dad, i hope his quality of life improves with the stents - amzing what they can do now isn't it.

Love the bluebird cushions, how lovely to rescue and reuse them.

Beautiful finishes, you do choose some wonderful projects to stitch.
