Avocado pit dyed piece almost done

Today hubby got to the halfway point in his chemo regimen and is napping to celebrate. Thank you to all of you that have sent well wishes, I really appreciate them all. His daughters are both coming to spend some time with him this weekend, an early birthday surprise. He knows that one is flying up from Phoenix because she told him and I have to go into Boise to pick her up at the airport. The other one is driving up from Reno. We should have a fun weekend.

I pulled out the piece that I had dyed with avocado pits and have the stitching almost complete, just one more spot that needs stitching, then trimming and finishing the edges.

I'll be linking up with "Off the Wall Friday" and "Slow Sunday Stitching".


  1. Love everything you shared this week!

  2. I enjoy seeing your beautiful work so much. I am glad you are going to have a wonderful family weekend.

  3. I love how the stitching is going on the avocado dyed piece - so fluid and rambling. Everything else is wonderful too, but looking at that first piece reminded me how much I've enjoyed freely handstitching on a dyed piece, not any particular design in mind and just watching it emerge. Enjoy the mini family reunion. :-)

  4. Working on your beautiful pieces and the upcoming positive family gathering hopefully will provide you peace to get through this with your husband.

  5. Your pieces are so lovely as usual. Glad your husband is half-way through this trying time.

  6. The avocado piece is so interesting! I've always wanted to try that! Best wishes to hubby as he passes the half way point... hope the visit with daughters was renewing for the rest of the treatments.
