Crabby Month 1

I decided to do Raise The Roof Designs Crabby all Year individually.  My plan is to put several pieces in frames above the calendar page for each month.   January was an easy month to stitch. It didn’t take much time at all. It was one of my Crazy January Challenge pieces, so it was started.  The only part I didn’t like was all the white. Boring.   It only took a few days of stitching to get this done.  I love the birds on it.  I may move that top bird I’m not sure if I like it there. 

I am still looking for fabric to finish Joy Love Peace.   I hope to get to Hancock fabric this week to see what they have.   Can you believe I have No Christmas Fabric?

A Finish

I had another finish today.  I’m pleased with how it turned out, though if I stitch it again I will change one of the colors.  I thought about changing it, but just didn’t want to frog what I had already done.

Joy Love Peace- CCN-Mystery pink fabric, 2×2

It was really hard to get a decent photo of this.  The fabby is actually a pale pink, and you can’t really see them but there are white birds at the top by the star and two snowflakes below the birds.  If I stitched it again, I would change the mauve, to a more pink, or perhaps a purple or blue. Still it was a quick and fun stitch.

I was originally going to stitch it as an ornament, but it is a bit big for that, so I’m not sure how I will finish it.  I may do an ornament finish but hang it on the wall instead of the tree.

This was also one of my Crazy January challenge pieces as well as a WIPocalypse. 

Hubby Update-OT

Thanks everyone for the prayers and thoughts on my recent post about hubby.  I am happy to say hubby is home from the hospital.   What we thought was going to be a routine appendectomy- turned into a serious nearly 4 hour operation where they removed dead bowel and ruptured cecum and appendix.  Had he not ended up at that dr. that day- he would have likely died.  

So he is home from the hospital after an 8 day stay.   That was a week ago.   He is doing okay.  Can’t lift anything, is on heavy pain meds.  His incision was healing too fast so the surgeon had to reopen it this past thursday so it can finish draining.  Hubby is not happy about it and is as a result rather grumpy.

I’m still so happy he is just alive and here that I find it hard to get too upset with his grumpies (though it does get a bit easier every day-lol)

Needless to say I haven’t gotten much stitching done recently.  I did pull out something just today and stitched a bit. 

WIPocalypse 11

Well I didn’t get much stitching done this past month-  My husband had emergency surgery and was in the hospital for 8 days.  He nearly died, and I have been so busy that stitching just hasn’t happened.  But here is what I did get done-
