Little Witch finis

Little Witch - design by Shepherd's Bush
Recommended linen and fibers

I finished up Little Witch at the hospital yesterday. I actually thought I would have a lot more done by this time but we seem to spend a lot of time traveling back and forth and I just never seem to have time. I started on a Halloween ornament from last year's Just Cross Stitch. The plan is now to work on Halloween stuff until the weekend.

My mom is doing much, much better. Her surgery on Friday was successful and her doctors are very pleased with her progress and said yesterday that she is doing much better than they expected she would given her condition when she was admitted last Monday. Three of her five docs have released her and we expect the other two will release her tomorrow or Wednesday which means we should be able to fly home on Thursday or Friday. I sure hope so! I'm still trying to get in some pool time and maybe today. My sister and I have been visiting Mom for an hour in the morning. Then we leave my Dad for a couple of hours by himself (he hates not having alone time with her and pouts when he doesn't get it) and go do something. Today I'm hoping just to drive back to the hotel so I can put on a suit and hit the pool. Then we will drive back to the hospital and stay for a couple more hours. Last night we went to the Hollywood Studios for a couple of hours and tonight we plan on going to Epcot and visiting the World Showcase to watch the fireworks. It is nice to get away from it all for a couple of hours.

Thanks so much for all your kind thoughts and good wishes! I know it helped Mom tons. :-)

Love you Little Witch. I have this kit and was so hoping I would get to stitch on it this year. But, it looks like it will be next year for sure!

Glad to hear that your mom's surgery went well and that she might be released soon.

Did you see the Fantasmic show at Hollywood Studios? It's my favorite show. So glad you are having a wonderful time at Disney! Such a fun place!

Little Witch looks great! Glad your mom is doing better. Surgery is such a scary thing; I'm glad things were not as bad as she had feared (cancer). Hope she has a speedy recovery and you have a good vacation in Jamaica.
