I only stitch on days that end in "y".

Finally finished!

I put the last stitch in my LHN Family Sampler Sunday night before band camp started on the next Monday morning.  Sorry it's such a horrible picture.  I changed the color of the house to reflect the house we built in MI.  I loved that house!

Thanks for all you concern for DS.  His pain is much decreased...he hasn't needed his pain med since Tuesday and he's doing some finger and elbow exercises to keep these joints from becoming stiff.  He just can't use his arm.  We go back for his post op appointmen next week and expect that everything is healing as expected.  I'm hoping he can at least learn his marching drill and maybe even drum one-handed for a while.  He hates this!  (...and I don't blame him.)

He's started his college applications so that's keeping him busy. 

He can't march or drum now but DH and I worked all week at morning marching band practice....wondering what's wrong with this picture?  lol!  I'm getting used to the heat again and pretty wiped out every day so not much stitching going on.  It's hard to stitch and watch the Olympics anyway.  Go, team USA!!!!!

Posting on my blog will be hit or miss during band season but I'll try to keep up with blog reading when I can.

Happy stitching!!

What a lovely family sampler; changing the house makes it even more yours. Glad to hear DS is doing well. Thankfully he's young and will quickly.

Such a wonderful finish, Rita!! Good to hear your son is improving, too. Can't imagine drumming with one hand, but I know he doesn't want to miss out on his last marching band season! All three of my sons did marching band and I miss those days so much now that they've all graduated...

Thanks, everyone!

Carol, luckily he plays bass drum (instead of snare or tenors) so he's managing.

Rita! I love the finish. Beautiful colors and what an excellent job you did.
I'm so glad to hear that DS is on the mend. Going to take time with the healing and the PT and all. So glad he wasn't hurt worse than he was though.
You have a great weekend.
