The Georgia Update
Things are going great in Georgia with Mom. She is doing fabulous post surgery and quickly recovering from the nasty side effects of chemotherapy. We were all at a loss as to how we could keep her settled and still for any period of time. She is usually moving constantly and FULL of nervous energy. I told her that she seriously needed a hobby to keep her busy while she recuperates. I had tried to teach her crochet last time I was here without luck, and she hasn't had the attention span to focus on books or movies. Eventually she remembered that she used to really enjoy embroidery. We found some old supplies along with a partially finished project in a closet and after a little remembering, she was off. She doesn't want any pictures taken right now, but it was a beautiful sight to see her settled in and stitching away. So if anyone knows where I con find some cute stitchety patterns for her to work on next, please let me know. I have a folder on my computer at home, but it would be nice to get a few things ready for her before I go.
