Red Hats! πŸ‘’

A couple of weeks ago, I surprised my Mom at the rehab center for their Red Hat Society Day tea. 
I ordered hats and scarves for Mom and her roommate, Gail, to wear since they didn't have any. Don't they look fancy?!

Snuggles for Momma! 

Look, she's standing!

Oh boy, my turn. Thanks Dad!

A quick pic before I left to go back home the next day.

More wonderful cards for my Momma! Thanks to those who sent her one.
They are slowing down, but that's okay, she might be home in two weeks! She's doing well, but had to have a stent placed in her foot last week because of a blockage. So now her foot doesn't hurt anymore and she's able to walk much better, but still with a walker. She was naughty earlier in the week, the nurse caught her coming back from the toilet without help and she almost fell!

Here's the recent card list.

From growing up - Kerri
From family - Brigitte, Monika, Jeanie, Terry
From friends she knows - Nina
And from my stitchy friends - JulieVickieMaggeeJoBrigitte

Thanks to ALL of you, they have definitely brightened her days receiving them. 

In stitchy news - 
This one is from the kit I bought on clearance at Hobby Lobby for 75¢, Artiste Mini.

I ran out of the purple only because I chose to stitch the words all one colour. I also ran out of the yellow because the chart called for the honeycomb to be white (just a little hard to see, don't you think?!) even though the picture showed it as yellow. Since the colours weren't DMC, I did the best I could and you can't even tell the difference, yeah!

Nice finish on the ATC and like your changes! So nice of you to get hats and scarves for them and hope your Mom continues to get better. My Grandma has been guilty of not asking for help when she needs it as well.
