BTW, if you have had successful ear surgery, please let me know all about it so I don't feel so alone. If your surgery was less than optimal you don't need to share that. I've just got to stay positive right now. It's times like this that I really miss my mom! Even as an adult, when I was in pain, she would literally sit me on her lap and rock me just like I was still a little girl. And when it was my turn to care for her, I would do the same for her. I miss her so very much. (But I can also hear her whispering in my ear - Frances Louise, quit wallowing, get up and carry on. My reply? Yes, ma'am. Besides, she's the one who introduced me to cross stitching so I need to honor her with new designs ASAP. I HEAR YOU, MOM!)
Again, mahalo for your continued support of my Hawaiian designs for counted cross stitch.
