What a dreadful week!

Delivering Plenty from Homespun Elegance

It's been a rough one, seems like everything that could go wrong did. My best friend Karen's Mom died from liver cancer. She was just diagnosed a couple of months ago so this went so incredibly quick that we all are still trying to understand it. I made it to the funeral last Thursday but didn't have time and stay and talk since DH and DD had a stomach flu that day. Karen and Tom is coming over Saturday though so we can catch up then. Very sad business.
Emma succeeded in coming down with two different illnesses in one week, which I think might be a record. She woke up with a terrible fever Monday night, seemed like it was a 24 hour thing that goes around and then she came down the stomach flu Wednesday.
Just a question, why do they have to put super red food coloring on so many things? I almost went into shock when I walked into Emma's room Wednesday evening and thought that she was bleeding internally for a moment until I realized what it was. I think my carpet cleaner is one of the best things I ever gotten, BTW.
But I did get some fun things done too (well, I enjoy the result at least). I finished painting the living room and I did get most of my yard cleaned up. Yay! It was so lovely Sunday and I was out there working for the whole afternoon. So nice to be outside after it rained all day Saturday. But that was ok too, my whole jaw hurt all day after my dentist appointment that morning.
I didn't stitch much last week, didn't go online much either. A combination of Emma being home and playing with her Webkinz on the computer and just having to much to do I guess. But Delivering Plenty is finished! I might add some smaller charms later on but I think it looks ok without them.
At the moment I'm beading on Sleeping Beauty, hope to finish her soon.

Oh, my Kajsa what a week you've had. I am so sorry to hear about your friend's Mum. And I hope everyone at your house is feeling better now!

Love your Delivering Plenty finish... :-) I just love everything HE and I really want to get this one stitched up one day soon! I think it looks just fine without the charms! Can't wait to see your progress on Sleeping Beauty!

Glad you got finished with the painting... you will have to show us piccys... :-) I hope this week is a better one for you!

OH wow, doesn't rain but it pours in your house eh Kajsa? Hope you are all on the mend now and that Emma is up and running again too.

Great that you got the painting done too... well done.

Have this week off, been busy though not quite doing what I planned either. Zeus sick, throwing up and we have to watch him as he has cystitis and wants to pee everywhere. Not good.

What a yucky week! Hope things get back to normal soon. Congrats on the pretty finish.
