Thank you! The blog has been so much fun. I've been able to connect with other stitchers and quilters from around the world in such a short amount of time. I am addicted to looking at pictures of other people's projects.

I had to have a look. What a fab photo! :D
I went to Disney Paris but I am sure that it is not the same. Looking forward to seeing more photos...


Each Disney theme park is shares something with the others and also has lots of different things to see and do. I haven't been to Disney Paris, but hubby and I have it on our bucket list to visit each of the parks at some point. So far, we've only made it to the US parks. We had intended to hit Disney Paris this year, but we now have four weddings to attend this summer...all in different parts of the USA...so our vacation time and $ is spoken for. Maybe next year? One can hope and dream.

When were you at Disney World? I was there for my birthday Feb 28th and Mar 1st. It was a lot of fun - my first time there.


Happy belated birthday! Glad you had fun. I'd love to hear all about it. We were there March 4th through the 11th (also celebrating my birthday). We spent three of those days at the Universal parks. We had our niece with us for part of the trip. She is a really big Harry Potter nerd and really enjoyed that part of the trip.

Happy belated birthday to both of you! Don't feel guilty about Universal. My niece had been begging my mother to take her to Harry Potter (we are all Harry Potter fanatics) and when my daughter got the internship at Disney, my mother took the opportunity to go visit (my daughter had a season pass to Universal) and take all us girls to go see Harry Potter world. Imho, HP was the only part of Universal that matched Disney for atmosphere and "magicalness." It was weird being in Orlando and not visiting the mouse, but we only had a long weekend b/c the little girls couldn't miss school.

It's been a crazy week. My dad is in the hospital and is definitely not himself. I have been there a lot the past couple of days, or I would have updated earlier. Here is the newest small section finish on Tink. I am coming so close to the finish. Although, for the time being, it's hard to say how much time I'll have to stitch.

For those interested in the non-stitching things I've been up to, I've got my latest quilt update and a short video of our trip with our niece to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in my latest blog update.

Thank you all for the well wishes for my dad. He had surgery yesterday and will be in the hospital probably at least another two weeks. He is so weak and unable to get out of bed. We hope that he gives everything he has to recovering from this surgery. The faster he recovers, the quicker he gets to go home.

I know how difficult it is when someone you love is in the hospital for anything and an extended period can be especially hard. Don't forget to take care of yourself. Long days at the hospital can be exhausting. It's important that you eat healthy and get enough sleep. Your Dad will hopefully have a full recovery and will you need you at your best once he has left the hospital. This is advice that comes from one that hasn't done a great job of that when I've been in your position. Sending good thoughts and prayers.

Thank you! And thanks for all the well wishes. We're officially over a week at the hospital. There has been very little progress in his health so far. They will be trying to start him on liquids and hopefully transitioning to get him off the feeding tube today. We shall see.

After two weeks in the hospital, my dad is now recovering at a skilled nursing facility. He is getting physical therapy twice a day and is much stronger than he has been in quite a while. He is anxious to get home but probably has at least one more week there. We were very blessed to find a facility that is brand new with state-of-the-art equipment. The staff has been amazing.

Now for my latest Tinkerbell update:

Only two more sections left on this piece.

I finally made an update to my blog. It has a picture of my completed Tinkerbell quilt top. If you're interested, you can take a peek.

Love the quilt top! :wub: Keep the pictures coming. Great news about your dad. Be sure PT/OT/and or Speech gives him a maintenance program for when he goes home. Also, check with DMV and find out what their requirements are for driving. Louisiana has an automatic 6 mo restriction for TBI, stroke, seizure and the like, but other conditions are left up to the doctor's recommendation. Some states offer a driving assessment if you are worried about it, but be careful and get all the information about the program before you agree to participate b/c sometimes it's next to impossible to get regular renewals afterward.

First, I am so glad to hear that your Dad is recovering and has been responsive to the physical therapy. Hope he makes it home in a week. I'm sure he is eager to get back to as normal a routine as he can manage.

Second, the quilt is wonderful!! There is never too much of Tinkerbell!

and finally, so close to a beautiful finish on your cross stitch Tink. She is absolutely adorable!
