I'm still busy working on the antique sampler. Yesterday I found a history/genealogy group in the region of England that Elizabeth is from. I emailed them about the sampler and hope to hear from them. According to a dear British friend, Yorkshire is a lovely region of England. Her small village is called Ingleby Greenhow. I have a band to do tonight and then all the family initials. I think I am finally finished with the alphabets. I can't wait to get to the motifs at the bottom.
I do have a bit of personal information to share with you. A week from Friday I am going to have knee replacement surgery. The time seems right as I am in good condition and sooner or later this would be necessary. My walking is limited to about 30 minutes a day and with our beautiful summer coming, I want to be able to do much more than that. I am looking at the recovery time as lots of time to read and stitch-two of my favorite things!! Of course with lots of PT worked in!!I hope to keep all my blogging and answering blogs up to date.
I would say it is about half done.
We planted several different kinds of daffodil bulbs to flower at different times. We have had a daffodil blooming in the yard since January!
I love the color of this Japanese Maple.
Do you remember my orange whiskers that I planted in the Fall? They survived the winter and are putting on quite the show.
Thanks for joining me today!
