Now that our daughter's wedding is over and we're back to empty nesting, I've begun to start stitching again.
Here's current progress on a PS bunny design (book 111):
Next up is LHN's Old Glory. (I'm participating in a LHN patriotic sal.)
I dug out a long-standing wip/ufo (bowing my head in shame) from Hinzeit...Sweet Land of Liberty and stitched a bit on it this week:
Since the picture was taken, I stitched an elephant below (left side) the whale. Funny story about this one. I was on my way out the door after buying some stitching stash at a LNS in Berlin, OH when I spotted this one as a model. I immediately turned around, asked where it was in the shop, and bought it. Maybe I'll finally finish this one this year.
Now for a brief PSA: I visited a new dermatologist (previous one retired last summer) shortly before the wedding to have some AK's (actinic keratosis--precancer lesions) frozen off my face. Since it was a new dermatologist, I showed her a mole on my leg that I've always had. She got a little excited, biopsied it, and it turned out to be a melanoma. Thank God an early one! I hadn't noticed any changes in it since having it checked the last time and almost didn't show it to her. I had it resected and danced at DD's wedding with 15 stitches in my leg. I just had the stitches removed and the pathology report showed that they got all the cancer out. Get those skin checks done, everyone!
