FNWF and Fathers’ Day wishes

I wasn’t sure if I’d make it to Friday Night at Chez’s as hubby had 7 of his teeth out in hospital and I wasn’t sure what time we’d be home.  As it was, he was brought out to me at 7pm and we were able to make it home by 8…..he was such a trouper…..being a 55-year old male and never having had a surgical procedure in his life, we weren’t sure how he would handle it….all I can say is ……flying colours!

I did try and get some stitching done in the hospital whilst I waited….but the lighting was terrible and my eyes were beginning to hurt so I just put it away till I got home.  I did manage to catch up on a bit more of this though…..

Buuuuut… hit when we got home……

…poor gummy bear was exhausted……or drugged to the eyeballs!   But that gave me time for some more stitching….or so I thought.  Whilst hubs was in theatre, I had a quick trip to Spotlight and found some Anchor threads marked down to 25c a skein…..could not pass it up so I figured now was as good a time as any to sort them out…..

and then I managed to squeeze in a little cross stitch….a brand new project (I know….I just can’t help myself!)

I certainly had a ‘different’ sort of FNWF, but one that I was very happy with as everything turned out perfectly!  Thanks for being a terrific host yet again Chez.  Why not pop on over to see what the other girls got up to on their Friday night.

Now, nearly two days later and hubby’s raring to go……he’s much, much better, and who would’ve guessed he’d be feeling so good after such a short time.  Thank you for the many good wishes and prayers….they certainly did the trick! 

Today we happily shared Shepherd’s Pie and ice cream (not together!) with his family for Fathers’ Day….something ‘safe’ to eat.  And he’s enjoying my his Fathers’ Day gift too…..

Weeeell, I do heart my coffee! *wink*


A very happy Father’s Day to all our significant others…..we certainly couldn’t do without them, could we?

Glad your hubby is feeling better Wendy. Having sorted your bargain basement threads you will be well organised and extra productive for your new project I'm sure. Have a great week. Cheers, Tracy

It's good to hear your hubby is doing better. Lovely stitching.

As someone who hasn't had but a couple of medical procedures herself (within the last couple of years), I can empathise. So glad to hear everything is going well. Praying for continued speedy recovery. You got a lot done my friend, even with the bad lighting and what a great find on the floss :)
Love and hugs.

Oh I feel for your poor hubby. Hope he heals quickly. Lovely stitching that you did get done. We get used to stitching with good lighting don't we. By the way loving your Chrissy blocks....gorgeous xx

So glad hubby is doing so well - no surgery is any fun. His ice pack reminds me of the one I had when I had my wisdom teeth removed as a teen!

I love the piece you are working on, and what a thread deal! Of course you couldn't resist. You're saving money! So glad your wonderful husband is feeling better so quickly. I hope that's the last of that he has to endure. And a happy father's day, a day late! Blame it on my being up over. =)
