Tuesday is the BIG Day!!!

Hello all my dear stitching friends!!! I figured that I better get off my booty and give you guys an update on things!!!

The doctor appointment went great for my hubby Friday. We where hoping that this doctor would have a "Lets get this taken care of now" attitude instead of the "Lets do a ton of expensive test and then end up doing a heart cath anyway" attitude. Guess what, he had the lets get it done attitude and we go in on Tuesday morning for the Heat Cath. If there are any problems they will hopefully be able to get them fixed while they are in there looking around unless of course it requires more than stints or something! Back in 2005 when DH had the heart attack the artery causing the attack was 100% clogged but there was another that was 80% clogged that the doctor did not fix!!????!!!???!! This is one reason we do not go to that doctor anymore. So we are praying that stints will be all that is required! Thank you all so much for your prayers and thoughts and I ask that you continue to do pray for us!!!

On the stitching front . . . I have decided that I need to stitch something for pure pleasure for just a bit. Something that is for DH and I, instead of a model of one of my designs, so I have picked a new design and got it all kitted up last night and started stitching it. I should be able to have stitched in several days time. It is the new freebie from The Holy Needle. Given everything that we are going through, this verse/saying is just perfect and something that we must remember!!!!!
Here is a progress pic. Sorry it is not very good. My daughter has her camera with her and she is away staying with my dad and his wife. So, I had to use my phone!I have made some updates to my web site! I have improved it greatly due to Sandra from Joyful Expressions. She has been doing this for a while and has given me some great suggestions to improve me web site. She is the reason that I decided to offer PDF's of my designs. These are now available for Instant download!!! Yep, as soon as you make your payment, you will receive access to the PDF file!!!! I have also included the stitched area size on each description. Another great suggestion that she had for me is to include Anchor thread colors on my patterns. So, I am in the process of doing that!!!! I think Sandra so much for all the help she is offering me.

I also want to thank Lisa! Lisa has been so wonderful to me. She is willing to stitch just about anything for me and has offered a lot of great suggestions for me to build up my customer's. She is such a dear and special friend as well. If you do not visit her blog, you gotta! She does such beautiful stitching and she has an awesome family!!!

I would also like to invite my Christian stitching friends to join a great yahoo group! All the ladies that I have gotten to know from this group are just awesome! Anna, the leader, is really working hard to build up the activity in the group and the members. So hop over there and check it out!!

I'll keep my fingers crossed about the hubby. My hubby has 2 stents, so I do know what you must be feeling. Good luck with the heart cath!
