Botched up embroidery UGHHH!!!
How annoying! I had a knot in my thread, I took off the hoop to take care of it, and crap...when I put the plastic hoop argh!!!! back on, RIP so here I am so very annoyed with this project, this is one of those for the back burner, or the "deal with it another day" box!
Spring is finally here and we are busy working int he yard. We have a lot of winter kill in our grass, so we have been seeding and stuff like that.
My clematis is growing so well, I was very worried about this because late last summer we had a pretty good wind and because of the weight of the plant, the trellis bent and tipped over. I could not salvage the plant so I cut it to the ground and prayed for the best! Prayers answered, growing strong...I will have a photo when the thing blooms in a month or so.
Also, we just got word a few moments ago that my incredibly ill 66 year old father-in-law has to have his second leg amputated. Now this man has squamis cell cancer, he is diabetic and already missing a leg, an eye, two pointer fingers, 3 kidneys (lost the transplant kidney,) an ear (from the cancer,) essentially rods hold his back up (due to an infection that ate away the vertebrae,) and he takes kidney dialysis 3 times a week.
This man is no quitter, not Tom, and he is going to keep living as long as he can see and talk to his 4 grandchildren, and witness for Jesus Christ.
He is a very strong man, and his wife, even stronger!
