More Stitchin' with Gramma

Monday's are spent at,
 my Mother's house
sitting with my
96 year old "Gramma".
My mom still works,
so Mondays are stitchin' days,
with Gramma.
You may remember
 last week,
 I spent most of the day
 answering the questions....
"What day is this?
and
"Is it lunchtime yet?"

Notice in the photo,
Gramma is eating,
 the
first of 5
 lunches.
When you are 96,
weigh about 90 lbs
soaking wet.
You can eat as many
lunches, as you like!
(I think I am gaining
weight just watching
her eat this often.)

No repetative questions
this time, but she did
have an andventure!
I found her on the
stairs!
  She left her walker,
at the base of the
stairs, that led to
what once was
and until recently
her bedroom.
About 2 months ago
she began sleeping
in the bedroom
across the hall from
my mother.
No more stairs to
climb each night.

I am not sure what
she was after
or
if she was
 on the way up,
or
 coming back down,
 but there she was
 on the steps!
(She can still get around
and is pretty darn quick too!)
I guess I am not the
best sitter, as I was
not watching her
as close as I should have.

Here is the stitchin that was
accomplished Monday.

 I cross stitched
"stitched with love"
over waste canvas.



More french knots
than I thought humanly
possible to stitch in one day!


While all the stitching was
going on the first block
was at home,
 being "damp stretched".


The damp stretching process,
  smooths out the surface,
while allowing the stitches
to stand proud of the fabric.

Love to all,
Deb
