Rough couple of Days

It has been a rough couple of days for my family.  My 18 year old nephew was seriously injured Sunday night in a car accident.  He was a passenger in a vehicle who's driver failed to yield while turning, the car was T-Boned in the passenger side and Anthony took the brunt of the impact.  He was life-flighted to Atlanta Medical Center.a big shout out to the trauma team at the hospital..they took excellent care of him!  He was critical when he arrived and is still in serious condition.  He has 2 broken legs, 2 broken ankles, fractured/dislocated hip, kidney and liver lacerations.  Along with numerous other small cuts and bruises.

Surgery today to put rods, pins and plates in his right leg, manipulate his hip back into place so that they could imobilize it along with imobilizing the other leg and both ankles.  The kidney and liver lacerations have quit bleeding so that is a positive sign.  However, they discovered ACL damage in his knee during surgery.  Until they can get an MRI on it they won't make a decision on surgery for it.  They want to make sure he is more stable before operating again.

Please keep him in you prayers along with my brother and his wife.  This is their only child.

Peaceful Easter

We had a peaceful Easter..sometimes I really miss the fact that my kids are little...this is only during the holidays tho.  Saw the munchikin Sunday morning and he was really full of himself.  He could care less about me when he sees his Pee-Paw.  He has grandpa wrapped around his finger.  I hope that they stay this way after the new one gets here in October.

Got a little stitching done this week.  Looking at it you would think I hadn't picked up a needle all week.  I really wanted to get it done for Easter but that was not realistic.  Maybe for next year.

The car club I am part of is co-hosting the NMCA Car Show this weekend..this means no stitching at all. We have to be at the Atlanta Dragway at 6:45 both Saturday & Sunday...Long days but it will be fun...we are set up halfway down the strip right under the bleachers..will be able to see everything.

Not much progress this week on "Harried Hare" but the colors are really comming out. Really looking forward to Tuesday nite. I will need the relaxation after this

Spring has Sprung!

Boy has it! I spent all day yesterday coughing and sneezing...Allergy meds are just not working. Think I am going back to tried and true Tylenol Sinus.

I got the new Samsarah piece as the last Tuesday nite stitch-in. Started it on Monday quite a bit done considering not much stitching time this week.

I love the colors in this...I am stitching it on a piece of yellow fabric that makes it pop that much more in my opinion.

Car show season has also started! We have had one every weekend for the last 3 weeks. Next weekend will be busy. National Muscle Car Association selected our club to host the show next weekend so we will be at the Commerce Drag Way from Friday till Sunday night! This is a big honor for our club and we are looking forward to it If anyone wants anything to do come up and see some beautiful cars!

Can't wait for Tuesday nite..need some down time.
