Stitched on Cream Belfast Linen, started 1 April 2006, finished 9 April 2006

Here are some closer pictures of it - this really was a fun stitch, I just love all the different speciality stitches (admittedly, some a lot less than others! LOL).

Carol - go for it! You've inspired me so much with your stitching and blog, that I'm pleased I can do the same.

I rang the insurance company this morning, and they do indeed cover glasses - whats even more impressive is basically I just give the optomerist the claim no., pay them the $100 insurance excess plus the eye examination that we'll get done for Cameron while we're getting new ones anyway ... and that's all I have to do - it doesn't seem to matter that the glasses we are planning on getting are a good $200 more than the original ones - they need to be replaced so they just go with it ... seems way to easy to me, I think DH needs to accidently break his! You know, this is the FIRST insurance thing we've ever claimed on for our house/contents insurance - and that would be over about 18 years, I'm beginning to think that maybe we are just too honest and trusting and maybe we should think of that option more often - heck, we pay for it, don't we!

Now just need to keep fingers and everything else crossed that everything goes well with Charlotte's trip to the opthomologist (eye specialist) on Wednesday ... she has the same genetic eye problem (long-sightedness) as Josh and Cameron, but it doesn't seem too bad - this is a last "just to be sure" check before she turns 5yo, so we're not really expecting to come away with a script needing them, but I'll still keep everything crossed, just in case ;)

Thanks for all your encouragement while I wildly stitched my sampler - it makes stitching so much more rewarding when you know other people who appreciate it are admiring it as well.
