Good afternoon Ladies. I hope everyone is having a nice peaceful Sunday with family and friends around them. I was able to finish the dark purple cowl today and I thought I'd share that with you.
This one was knitted using Tosh DK from Madelinetosh and it really gives you a good stitch definition. It's soft to the touch and will be quite comfortable to wear here in Florida this winter. The pin is one I bought at Joann's. It seems that lapel pins are becoming quite popular this year. I've also seen them worn on hats. I do have a hat pattern I want to make for myself but usually hats and I do not get along. We'll see.
Now for the bad news. Last Thursday my hubby had an appointment with the cardiovascular surgeon and it was determined that he needs to have his open heart surgery sooner than we thought. It is scheduled for Nov. 10th and yes I'm a basket case. They have to replace his aortic valve in his heart and also replace the aorta that comes out of your heart at the top for about 3 inches. That is where his anurysm is so the surgeon decided just to replace that part of the aorta. To say I am scared is putting it mildly. My hubby has had 3 surgeries in the last 8 years but this one is the worse. I hope and pray that he comes thru alright because I don't know what I would do without him. All he asked the surgeon was to keep him alive long enough to see his first great grandchild. That brought tears.
So now I have a question to ask each and every one of you. We all have movies that we watch when we are down in the dumps and these movies lift our spirit. For me "It's A Wonderful Life". I put that movie in and I just feel better by the end. I'm going to need more movies like this in the next few weeks, so please share with me your pick me up movie.
Blessings to all of you and don't forget to tell your Love Ones that you love them,
