A finish

While I was ill at home after my surgery I decided to stitch a big design, so not St. Nick as that one is stitched over one and that is to hard for me. I finished Strawberry sampler from Sister and best friends design. I am now busy with a Jeannette Douglas sampler. I hope to show you a pic next week.
The surgery was a success as now I am hearing again. Te doctor was even surprised that I was already hearing. Now who is going to kill that bird that is waking me very early every morning and which I didn't hear before with my bad ear.

Terwijl ik ziek thuis zat na mijn operatie besloot ik na een week een groot borduurwerk ter hand te pakken. Voor mij dan groot, niet zoals St. Nick over 1 draadje geborduurd, maar gewoon kruisjes op 28 count linnen (trouwens geen lekker linnen, maar plank achtig.
Nu ben ik bezig met een sampler van Jeannette Douglas. Hopelijk kan ik komende week de foto showen.
De operatie was een succes, want ik hoor weer. Heel apart na een jaar of 15 slecht te hebben gehoord met dat oor. Het opeens horen is vooral heel vermoeiend. Sinds deze week werk ik halve dagen en aan het eind ben ik doodop. De arts was blij verrast dat ik al zo goed hoorde, want hij had het niet eerder dan september verwacht. Zal wel die lange fietsvakantie zijn.

Glad to hear your surgery went well. My mom had a moment like your bird moment when she had surgery on her eyes. She called me the next morning, bright and early, and said, "Why didn't you TELL me I had a mustache?????" It was so funny. I had just assumed she could see it (it's not really very visible, but still), and she couldn't. I just laughed at the sound of it, though. She sounded so funny when she said it!!! I'm so happy for you that you can hear again. And maybe you'll get used to the bird and sleep through him from now on. I love the colors in your sampler. They're so pretty. And what a huge strawberry!!! Great job!! Grats on the finish too!

Wat een leuk borduurwerk Juutje! En fijn dat je nu ook eens goed kan horen na zo'n lange tijd...nog even wennen dus, maar daarna zal het fijn zijn lijkt me.
