Jeff and I celebrated our 30th anniversary last April. We had planned to take a family cruise later in the summer to celebrate the event. I had plans to make a few gifts for him. Then, his health got in the way. He's having problems with his hip and so far hasn't gotten a clear diagnosis of the issue. The only thing that has been agreed upon is that he needs to lose a significant amount of weight. Then, either the issue will resolve itself because of the weight loss or he'll be a surgical candidate.
Anyway, we had to postpone the trip. I lost steam on everything. It just took all of my momentum and put me at a standstill. I managed to finish one project. It's an idea I got from Pinterest. I drew my hand and then inserted bands with love quotes. It came out great and made a unique gift for Jeff for our anniversary.
I still have another craft project to finish. And then there's today's blog subject. I saw A Good Marriage - Lizzie Kate being stitched by some online friends. I really liked it so I decided to buy the kit and make it for an anniversary gift. It didn't start as well as I hoped. I definitely struggled. I finally made an adjustment and managed to get through my first row and start on the second. That's where I stalled when we canceled the trip. Now it's 3 months until our anniversary and I'm having trouble picturing this one as a finish in time for the event. I still love the sentiment expressed in the design. So, here it is. My progress thus far.
