Dear Heavens, it’s been busy around here and the blog has suffered! Dad is all moved it and it’s been a work in progress, let me tell ya. The stuff I had to get rid of! 3 years ago we moved him from his house to an apartment, then a month ago moved him from the apartment to our home. I donated and gave away what I could, but so much had to be thrown out.
Anyway, for the most part, he’s settled in and we’re all adjusting. His swearing, which is nothing but a bad habit, is causing the most distress, because even though I’m on the liberal side, hubby is very religious and the swearing deeply offends him. We’ve been trying our best to get dad’s bad habit corrected. How successful we’ll be is another matter, lol.
We moved dad in three weeks ago, and for the first two weekends I was still cleaning out his stuff. Last weekend was spent with the son spreading 7 1/2 tons of gravel, extending the driveway. As a result, barely any stitching got done and I still haven’t framed Sweet Treats. I have a frame ordered for Wicked which should be here in about 2 weeks or so – the framer is super busy this time of year. I also ordered materials for an L&L angel that was my mom’s. She had it framed about 15 years ago and I noticed some warpage on the top edge. I took it apart to discover that her framer had masking taped the needlework to a piece of poster board and stuck it in the frame!!! It was truly a disgrace and I know that my mum paid a decent price back then to have proper framing done. Needless to say, I took it apart and marched off to the LNS where I ordered a suede mat, fillet, and a new frame. I will be framing this myself, properly this time, lol.
