The August TuSAL is once again on my Side Bar this year.  Better late than never?   à
I’m still stitching on some exchange pieces, so they won’t be up for viewing for a while yet.  My stitching time is limited now as my dad’s physical health and mental acuity is failing quickly.  Thankfully, he is not in a lot of pain.  Mom, of course, is his primary care giver, and she is not the strongest or well sighted but she will NOT have it any other way.  I don’t feel like I’m doing much there, but running errands and spending some time with her each day.  Your prayers or positive, kind thoughts for her strength are coveted.
and Happy Stitching


  1. I had the same problem, ended up having to switch browsers from IE to Google Chrome.

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your mum and dad. I'm looking forward to seeing your exchange pieces revealed.

  3. Will keep you and your family in my thoughts. I know how hard it can be especially when there isn't much you can do to make it better.

    Can't wait to see all of the goodies you are stitching!

    Have a great holiday.....

  4. Prayers and positive thoughts heading your way. I know it is very difficult to watch your parents fail - Just being there for you Mom is really a help.

  5. Prayers coming for your family. It's hard watching parents decline. Your being there must be a big help to your mom.

  6. (((Charlene))) I'm so sorry about your dad's health. I'm sure you are doing a lot by just being there for your mom.

  7. Hey Charlene,
    I am thinking of you and your family.


  8. I am glad you are able togo find time to stitch. I have no doubt that your prescence is a gift and a comfort to both of your parents. You are in my prayers.

  9. Sounds like we are both going through the same thing with our dads, Charlene...It is so hard to watch them fail and to watch our mom's struggle to care for them, isn't it? I, unfortunately, live five hours away from my parents so I try to drive up as often as possible to lend a hand. It's such a sad, sad life they're living now.

    Sending you a big hug and all good thoughts--I do know how difficult this is for you...

  10. So sorry to hear about your dad but glad you can be there for your folks. Take care of yourself! Big hugs, too.

  11. Charlene, I am thinking of you and your dad and mother. Big hugs.
