Thank-you for all your kind words about Dave and his grandma. Waiting really does make it harder. And on top of that, the ward she is in went on lockdown because of a COVID outbreak, so they are limiting her visitors to just two people.
We probably won’t see her again before she passes, so I’m thankful I took Dave both days this weekend, and he spent as much time with her as possible. But as he said, it’s the time he spent with her when she was living, not dying, that really matters – and he’s covered in that department. Not just lots of time, but quality time.
Anyway, as you can imagine, there wasn’t much time for tiny stitches this weekend. I was too tired on Saturday after we got home, but I managed a little bit Sunday night.
I’m a little over half done the final border. I really wanted to finish it all this weekend, but I had to remind myself, other things are more important and it can be finished later. In all honesty, I’ll probably work on it tonight instead of waiting for the weekend. I’ve already got my next project lined up and I’m itching to start…
I found the kit on the Joann website when ordering some fabric and I just HAD to have it. I mean Burton on a vintage sewing machine?… how could I not? Obviously, when completed, it will hang in my sewing room!

That sewing machine looks like pretty intense project. Yowza!
Your new project looks purrfect for you! (And Burton, of course.) Love your current project though – that is SO PRETTY.
So glad Dave has had a great relationship with his Gram to see him through this time.
the stitching you managed to finish is so pretty; the new kit is beyond perfect!
Your bee stitching project is looking so stunning, and I agree you HAD to get the sewing machine kitty kit!
I’m glad Dave not just had the chance to be with his grandmother while he could, but that he knows that she knows he was there then, and all those years before.
That is a cute new project! You have will power finishing one project before starting another!
The sewing machine piece is perfect for your sewing room, especially with Lord Burton’s likeness included.
Just from reading your blog, I remember how often Dave was there for his Grandmother. So glad he has those memories. Queen Bee is looking beautiful. That new cross stitch project could have been designed especially for you.
It’s like someone designed that pattern just for you!
Too bad about the COVID lockdown in Grandma’s ward.
