I'm HOME :)

Happy Sunday

I came home Friday afternoon!!!I am so blessed.
I need to thank all of you from the bottom of my HEART for your Prayers and well wishes. I hope you enjoyed messages from Hubby...he has a blog , so he was able to help me out!! Thank you Bill!!
When I came home my Daughter Meagan was here doing housework and cooking healthy food for me...what a blessing that was...she has become an amazing woman. 

8 days on the hospital was along time...I will still be on IV antibiotics a bit longer, and then we will address the AFib that I had an episode with in the hospital...and found out I have sleep Apnea too. So at least we found these things out while I was in the care of nurses and doctors and we can get them addressed. 

Etsy Orders
All current Etsy orders will be going to the Post Office on Monday

"Harbor Haven"
I will be finishing up details for the "Harbor Haven" release.
Thank you so much for your patience and  I will have the full reveal on Oct 31st and then sign ups will start November 1st.  
AGAIN I AM SO THANKFUL FOR ALL OF YOU AND YOUR PRAYERS

Prayers being answered at Serenity Harbor !

Hello Dear Stitchers !

This is (bill, Donna's Hubby) once again with an update on Donna's health challenge. And, it appears that all of your prayers are evidently being heard above, as Donna's ' Triple Antibiotic Cocktail ' seems to have taken hold and her white blood cell count is very slowly DROPPING !

We Thank You Deeply for your Prayers !

SO ! , ...... Where does that leave us  ???   Well, if  all  goes as hoped for, and we continue to see these improvements, my Dear Donna will be home by the end of the week. In anticipation of this, the hospital placed a PICC line in her upper arm, and donna will receive two doses of IV antibiotics daily for 2 to 4 weeks once home.( I guess this 'Bacterial' Meningitis takes quite a while to clear up!)   BUT !
IT  IS  BEGINNING  TO  WORK

We pray you will bear with us as we progress through this week. We do expect to be able to ship any ETSY  SHOP  ORDERS  next week. AND ! , ..... donna told me to let you know that these orders will be accompanied by a ' SPECIAL  SURPRISE ' . 

SO ! , ......; and as a matter of fact, I've done so well on the 'HONEY-DO' list, that Donna has promoted Me !.  I am now the ' Vice- President of Manufacturing ' !~  WaHoooo
( folding and stuffing charts in envelopes! )

As a new V.P. ! , (donna doesn't know this yet) BUT!, from now till Donna gets home, ' So we'll say, through the weekend, ALL , yes  ALL  ETSY  ORDERS  WILL  INCLUDE  a  very
' SPECIAL  SURPRISE '
( only one per customer )
And again, we Thank You from the very bottom of our hearts for all of your Prayers, Cards, and emailed notes of encouragement. This has made a significant difference to Donna's recovery from what was a  life threatening situation.  Bless You All
( if needed, you may email me at bill.bayliss@aol.com . I can call u back if needed )
THANX  YET  AGAIN !

Hello Dear Stitching Family !

Hello Dear Stitching Family !

This is actually ( bill ) Bayliss posting today. Yes! , I'm Donna's 'extremely handsome'  Husband.
( with the obviously odd and self indulgent sense of humor )

I am posting for my beautiful donna as she is currently 'in-hospital' being treated for bacterial meningitis. Most of you have likely heard of this, and of it's seriousness. Needless to say we've seen a difficult few days, and still have a bit of tough road ahead. But, on a positive note, and after a somewhat 'concerning' night, today we were blessed with a slight improvement and a slightly lower White Blood Cell count. For the non med-heads, this is a sign the aggressive therapy she is on may be taking hold !   ................ needless to say, there's been quite a bit of praying going on.

The other very positive sign is Donna's concern regarding the Fun upcoming On-Line Stitch A Long,  ' HARBOR  HAVEN ' ,  ( which 'I' think will generate more national level awards by our stitchers than SERENITY  HARBOR ! ). SO ! ,...... donna wanted to be sure to tell you that ' She's feeling a bit better, and if the treatment continues to improve as it appears it 'may' be , ..God willing, ....  she should be able to get you all up to date with the 'Sneak Peeks', etc. etc., next week some time.
I believe donna is now planning on extending the sign up date until November 1st, and the START  DATE should remain unaffected.
SO ! , ......... ' In- Short '
Please excuse this unexpected ' RAIN  DELAY ' !
Donna will be back with you all as soon as her continued blessings restore her health
We both have an overwhelming feeling we are on the way to recovery, and that donna will be further blessed and that this issue will be " Stitched  Up ! " in a few more days.
Prayers for continued improvement are most certainly appreciated.
 BLESS  YOU  ALL  for  YOUR  PATIENCE
I ( bill ) will keep you up to date

Harbor Haven Sneak Peek #11

Sneak Peek Removed :)
Waiting for full Image, keep checking for the next peek :)



Happy Monday :)
This is section 1-6 of "Harbor Haven"
 and we are half way there!!
Not only does each section make a design in itself 
but 2 conjoined sections make a design. 
Two sections have a stitch count of 112 x 84 and if stitched on 14ct Aida or 28ct Linen
 this would measure 8 x 6 and would fit into a 10 x 8 frame, 
I'm sure I could come up with a one inch border to help fill in the extra space.
Oh!! the possibilities. 
Please check back Tuesday to see who our Needlesmith might be knitting for!!
Hugs 
donna

Harbor Haven Sneak Peek #6

Sneak Peek Removed :)
Waiting for full Image, keep checking for the next peek :)



Good Day,
Here is a peek of section #4,
A large Blue Colonial home nestled by the ocean inlet
with a couple of sheep helping to keep the grass short ...
a small blue hydrangea bush by the water along with beach rose bushes by the home....
I can just smell the flowers and the ocean breeze....
but it wouldn't be complete without 2 seaside birds flying by
sending a good morning squawk to you.
Here is my Good morning to you too  
Enjoy HAHA!! I really do love the sound of birds :)
