Even More SALs And An Update On Pa


Am I nuts, you ask?

Perhaps I am, but I seem to be in good company, so whatevs...

I decided that I am going to just stitch SALs for a bit...with the exception of MeMa's stocking, since I am almost finished and want to get it to Faye before October...but otherwise I decided to eat dessert first, so to speak, and put aside the WIP list to focus on stuff!

So, let's see...with my previously posted AAN SALs, which don't start until 2016, and Natalia's 2015 Summer Mistery SAL....

I am adding...

Our dear sweet Gayle, owner of Stitchers Anon Cross Stitch Designs has designed The Year Long Halloween SAL, which starts in September and features a chart release each month which can be stitched as a stand alone or all together...whoohoo! Can't wait!

And next...

I was told about another SAL by our dear bloggie friend Kate, that is in honor of the end of an era for so many of us who love The Prairie Schooler. You can find the details over at The Prairie Schooler SAL...I, for one, jumped in without hesitation and cannot wait to get started on all of those Santas that I have chosen to stitch...

And then...

I have happily committed to my current 2015 SALs, such as the Smalls SAL and our annual TUSAL, as well as a Haunted Harvest Exchange, which has me already perusing for just the right chart...

And Last but certainly not least...

I am faaaar behind in the 2015 AAN Christmas SAL, and will be catching up at a hare's pace instead of the snail's pace that I have been plodding Edgar would say..."I'll keep you posted Sports Fans."

An update on the Pa...

When I called to make an appointment with the Orthopedist, he was able to go online and look at the x-ray and reports from the ER, and quickly called to say "Come in today," which we did. It seems that Pa has what is referred to as an "Acromioclavicular joint separation" along with a long hairline fracture, not an uncommon injury to both bike riders and motorcycle dudes who fly over the handlebars while going down...go figure. After lengthy discussion and weighing all the options, we decided that the best choice to allow our Pa a full return to the Mayhem he surgical repair. So, he is scheduled for outpatient shoulder surgery on Friday, with a total recovery of 6 weeks...which is no easy feat for him, but he promises me he will chill on the recliner and allow himself to heal like a good boy...we'll see...I'll keep ya'll posted! Poor Pa!

That's about it, it's hot hot hot here in the SoCal today, so we will be hanging out inside...

I better get stitching!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit...

Hugs ya'll
