Mom moves in

My mom Suzanne
Mom is finally settled into our home.  She moved in for a temporary but hopefully permanent visit.  After two hospitalizations in a row and not getting stronger, she has moved in for some much needed TLC.  Since she can't do stairs yet, we moved the bed from her bedroom down to the first floor and our dining room became her bedroom.  She is happy to be all on the same level.  Today she sat at the kitchen table and helped me cook.  She cut up all the fixings for some chicken salad and split pea soup.  A great helper with all the cooking talent to share with me. 

Raw edge quilting


As you can see in the picture of mom, she is working on my postage stamp quilt.  She is embellishing it for me, giving her something constructive to do!  She is missing her sewing machine and mine is downstairs.  This hand work is good for her.

The picture of your Mom sewing made me smile. As long as you can sew, life is good!
Take care of her, as I know you will.

Give her a hug from me and remind her that she needs to work on getting her strength back so we can do lunch down this way again when the weather gets warm in the spring!

You know she is in good hands now that she is with you. This Thanksgiving you all will have so much to be grateful for!

Your mom looks so much better. I am glad she is staying with you.

Watch out or she will shanghai your machine next.

Be sure to take care of yourself while you are caring for her.

She looks quite content doing her stitching. I'm a firm believer in fabric therapy! :)

Stephanie what a good daughter you are to take your mom in. She looks happy and I'm sure her spirits are lifted just being with you. How fun that she can sew too. Take care.
