The recipient of the gift

My brother really liked the October finish I gave him. He was happy. I am glad I made it and gave it to him. It was worth every frustation over knots and frogging that had to be done.

I always like to give my things away. This was for someone special.

I feel so crummy. I should be very happy but I feel so bad. I am so hungry. There is nothing to eat. I have to watch what I eat. I don't want to get diabetic. But, the new med I am taking makes me hungry. I ate enough today. But, I wil have to go find something to eat.

I worked on the dreaded bibs. They are so frustrating. My attitude right now is not helping much.

The back of my embroidery

How do I make the back of my work look neater? This as you see it has to stop! It is driving me crazy!

October Finish

I finished my One Eyed Jack for my brother. I couldn't figure out who to give it to. I made it and wanted to give it to someone special. So I chose my brother. He is coming in from AZ this week so I can give it to him then.

I am working on those dreaded bibs. Those are still hard. Yesterday I made a little progress and the back came out better. I will post a progress pic later and you can see the difference if there is any?

Have a good day! Happy stitching!

October finish

I did it! I finished One Eyed Jack. I will post a pic soon. But, I finished it maybe about 2 weeks ago. Haven't been feeling well which is why I haven't posted. I usually post right away when I finish something.

Something new to add to my readers. I have cognitive difficulties. Sometimes I cannot hardly read. Now is one of those times. I was reading a post from a yahoo group and I could read the words but there was no mind connection between the words and my brain. I cannot remember trivial things. Sometimes it is the fact that I cannot remember how to do things like simple math. I cannot help my daughter with her homework which is very embarrassing as she is just in the 9th grade. I have had several years experience in doing homework as I spent all those years in college and even graduated!!!!!! It is horrible. It is weird.

Did you know....when I stop to really think about something hard, like remembering eyes look to the top right of my side. It is as if my eyes go to that direction to try and work. It seems to be a mind eye connection to me. That is very weird but it is true! Has that ever happened to you? Have you noticed that?
