Mom Makes the Local Paper

Sorry I have not been blogging for a bit, but I have been preoccupied. Just before Easter Mom had a teeny weeny fender bender. Not to worry she is fine and the only thing that is wounded was her pride and a small ding in the "Red Jewel", that is what Mom calls her new Buick.

The Jewel has now been repair and is home safe and sound.
Mom was a little overwhelmed by the incident and didn't want to drive up to my place for Easter. I didn't want her to be alone so I drove down to pick her up and bring her home. We had a great Easter.

Mom is quite involved in the Friends of the Library twice annually they have a book sale ( from books donated by the public) to raise fund for the Local Library. The Peterborough Examiner sent someone to take a publicity photo for there paper. This is the third time that Mom has been the centre of that photo. Here's the picture from the paper. (see the picture)

Last time I told you I would have some pictures of some great embroidery floss. I enjoy doing some stitching from time to time and I've found this beautiful, relatively new floss by DMC called variations. It is different from varigated as the colour changes within every few stitches. I ordered the entire pallette. Aren't they yummy. Then I found that I had a small clear bag given out once with by clinique with the free bonus that will do nicely so I can keep those colours seperate from my varigates and regular floss.
Here is a picture of the varigated threads. Of course I had to buy those too!

Well I am off now to one of my many doctors appointments, have a great day. Happy stitching.

Wonderful photo of your mother. :)

Well, I just learnt something new. I thought the DMC Variations were the same as the Varigated, just different colours. How exciting! I have the box of Varigated and the Motif and Floral pack of Variations. I have yet to come across the Alphabet Sampler box.
