A Big thanks and Cross Stitch!!

I have read it often that the blogging and stitching communities are full of nice people.  Well, I am the proof that it is true.  So many of you took time , not only  to read about my "grinch" visit at Christmas , but commented and wished me well. I realize that it is such a busy time, I was moved to tears to think you took time to visit my blog and many of you commented.  THANK YOU! THANK YOU!  It felt so good to get enough energy to finally get to the computer and then to read your comments. Thanks to all the well wishes and some very good medicine and LOTS of water, I am much better.  Still a lot of coughing but that part just takes time.  I tried to drown it with water and the Dr.  said that was one of the best things I could do.(FYI, just in case the Grinch finds you).
I do have a few pictures to share.  On the day after Christmas, the DH(who is now in the clutches of the Grinch) took me for a little ride.  I have also continued to work on Margaret Cottam, and I have my New Years stitch picked out.

 A few more days, and Margaret will be finished.  I have made lots of color changes.  If you do have any questions, I'd be happy to share.

 I love the little scene at the bottom. It is hard to believe she was only 9 years old! 

 This is my New Year's choice.  The words are the old weather saying," Red at night, Sailor's delight......." This has special meaning for me.  My dad was an amateur sailor and built two of his own boats.  When I was a little child, he always recited this to me ,so  this was a project I wanted to stitch.

 Our beautiful Olympics, finally with some much needed snow!

 The bridge at the bottom of the picture is called The Hood Canal Bridge.  It connects the Kitsap Peninsula(where we  live) with the beautiful Olympic Peninsula.

Thank you again for all the well wishes.  I hope all of you have a very happy and most importantly a healthy 2015!!
