So Em trashed her ankle while falling off her horse going on 3 weeks ago. She found out today after 3 doctors, 2 sets of X-rays, an MRI and a CT scan that her heel bone is broken and she tore a (the?) ligament on the front of her foot/ankle. So no riding for her for 6-8 weeks (ouch for me) nor driving either for at least the foreseeable future. Which means lots of running around for me.
Anyway, here is more Garden Grew progress:
Friday I got numb-butt:
All day to do this one basket (to the right of the trellis):
Saturday involved helping the patient, so with little actual stitching time available, I finished the basket on a previously finished flower, plus had to add the badger. I didn’t take another overall shot after completing the little guy, but he’ll be adjacent to the basket of flowers above & to the right of the “all-day basket” in the photo up top.
Here’s the latest on Quaker Halloween:
I’m going to miss working on this one; it’s a ton o’ fun!

I’ve been remiss on posting my other stitchy progress:
I’ve now reached the bottom pages of Quaker Halloween.
This quadrant is “Spring”.

One more glass to go!

I just got my computer back in my computer room, aka the kids’ bedroom for the past 2 years.
And obviously, it works. YAY!
Now on to re-arranging the living room, aka the computer’s home-away-from-home. First, I have to go take care of Axe. Miss Em’s ankle is toast.

I’m back from a 4-1/2 day stint of barn sitting. The 2 guacamoles have moved!!! YAY!!! Now I have to try to get my house clean and back in some sense of order, plus mow the lawn. That damn fertilizer I applied 13 years ago is still making my grass grow too fast! I did a lot of stitching, but I’ll save that for another day (soon- I promise!)
Here are my lilac bushes; it was hard to get photos between all the rainy spells we had.
The big, dark purple bush out front:
The mini, paler one on the side:
Here’s Huey, the African Gray Parrot:
He keeps me fully entertained. He even sang what sounded like a pirate song!
Here’s Axe napping under a tree on one of the hot days we had:
