The past week has been quite difficult for me. We had to say farewell to a beloved familymember, my uncle. He was even closer to me than my own father, and I'm going to miss him. He passed away after been taken care of in a nursery home, and my DH and I visited him regularly. I know he suffered a lot, knowing he couldn't take care of himself anymore, after a severe stroke, and not being able to walk, to get dressed himself, being dependent on other people who took care of him. That is what he suffered the most, I think, not to be independent. So last Sunday we drove to the other side of the country, to say goodbye to him. Monday I had to go to work, Tuesday we went to the funeral, and the rest of the week I had to go to work again. So last Friday I was really tired, and what kept me on my feet? Yes, stitching!
I always take something to stitch with me when DH and I go on a car ride. On our trips to the western part of the Netherlands I started a new LHN, Reading.
The evenings, I spent stitching, nothing unusual, but I even took some more time to stitch, and less time to surf the internet, read blogs and take part in groups, I just didn't feel like it. So I can show some progress on my Family Village, it already starts to look like a small village. Remember this is just the top of the piece, there is going to be a lot more. I have plans, but they can change on the way, and I don't think this will be finished next year LOL
My Mystery XI also got some progress, I finished the right border, except the beading, that is still waiting till I finished all the stitching. I think that will take a month too, so I hope to start the next Chatelaine, Holland Spring, the 1st of May.
And some progress on Vibrant Vista, I just joined Our Friends' HAED SAL and I am planning to stitch on Vibrant Vista every Thursday evening.
