Mary Lamin's Sampler

I hope everyone had a great Christmas.
Ours was spent once again in a hospital room.  Never got to bake cookies, have a family dinner, wrap gifts, relax.
 
 I scheduled this post to appear Friday - it's the only thing I am sure of at this point. 
Right now I am at the hospital waiting for scope results. Christmas day 2013 was spent in the same hospital when Carole's heart failure began.  This year, it's her son.  We have no answers, they aren't sure of the problem, and sent him home from the ER twice before realizing there is something radically wrong.  Staff is short during Christmas week. We postponed the dinners to this weekend, but that has been cancelled.  She's very upset, not allowed to drive, not recovered from last week's surgery, so we're going back and forth to see him and helping her.  I don't even know what day it is most times but I know where the Ativan is!  His girlfriend is there when she can be and has been a big help. 

Mary Lamin's Lord's Prayer from Homespun Elegance.  I changed a few colors as I always do, and can't remember if I used 28 or 32 count.  I think smalls will be in my Magma for a while and I'll search for a few this weekend. 
 
 
Enjoy your weekend and empty those cookie trays.  I'll be back with another little finish of Isobel's free chart you can find by clicking here - The Primitive Hare.  Thanks for visiting.

Marly, I'm so sorry to hear this news. Sometimes you just want to put out a STOP sign and say "enough!". Keeping you and yours in my prayers.

Your new finish is looking beautiful. Love the changes you made! One day I`ll ask you about how you do the finishing on your samplers and hanging them up.

Take care!

Such troubles for your family. I understand this on many levels and my thoughts and prayers are with you. I need to say that your blog, your work, your wit and your talent have strengthened me during my difficult time recently. I thank you for that. I doubt if my skills will ever measure to yours but you have inspired me to resume my hand stitching. Take care and remember that you are in our thoughts.

Maggee said...

So sorry to hear this news about your sister's son... I will pray that they find what the problem is and can make him better. You and Carole could use a bit of a rest from stress, and worry. Christmas is a celebration of the birth of a Saviour--you can celebrate that another time... He won't mind! The Mary Sampler looks great on your wall. Take it as easy as you possibly can. Big Hugs!

Marly, sorry to hear this. Not to make light of this but is you watch Big Bang, you will recognize this " I can't catch a break" This seems to apply this year for you. I so very much hope 2015 finds everything well for the whole family. I worry about you , please take care of yourself.

Sometimes life is just not fair.. 2014 has not been good to your family and things you've wanted done right.. I hope the new year will show a big improvement to you and your loved ones..
I am thinking about and praying for you and your family..
I'm sorry you all didn't get to celebrate but you can do that anytime when everyone is well and has the strength and energy to do so.
The most important thing, right now, is for your family to be well.
Your Mary stitches are beautiful.. I think you will enjoy do smaller charts for a while. I'm anxious to get back to my PS Santas..
Warm hugs for the New Year !

I follow your blog regularly and always find it inspiring.
I'm so sorry your family has had such a terrible year. I was so glad when your sister began to improve. My sister and I are very close and she was seriously ill and nearly died 37 years ago so I know that feeling. I'm so sorry to hear now that your nephew is not well. Sending prayers. You are an incredibly strong person and are a huge support to your family. I do hope 2015 will be a better year for you all.

Aww Marley I wish for your life to get easier with less stress and trauma in the new year. Wish you didn't have to go through all this and I am sending warm hugs your way.

Sue Robinson said...

They say "it never rains but it pours". You've certainly experienced that this year; I should imagine you'll be only too glad to see the back of 2014. I hope everything settles down, that the medics can get your sister and her son back on track and that 2015 can see some sort of normalcy return to your life. Thinking of you ...

So sorry to hear of all the troubles you have been dealing with, and so sorry it happened to be at Christmas time. I am sending prayers for your sister and her son, hope they can figure out what is wrong soon and get it corrected. They are both very fortunate to have you to care for them and about them, so there is a special place in Heaven for you Marly!! Take care and try to stay sane and healthy yourself.

Wow Marly, more tough news!! We are still praying and hoping the best for you and your family. Mary is lovely!! It sounds like lots of us had a tough Christmas. Mine was spent in bed with a URI.

So sorry to hear about your nephew . I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I hope 2015 brings health and piece to all of you.

Must say your Sampler is beautiful. I have this in my stash as well. I think it is one of the loveliest samplers with The Lord's Prayer.

Lots of good wishes.
