Week four in a year of stitches

Between the 18th and 24th of January I had to rush to take care of my mum who had a fall which left her with four cracked ribs.
Mum and Dad are in their eighties and quite fragile. It's awful to have to see them in pain.
Mum is improving each day. Her positive spirit and can do attitude coupled with her implicit faith in prayer is making all the difference.  
 25th January.2017. Started on an up-and-down flower. Followed the instructions from this tutorial.
26th January 2017. The Up-and-down flower complete.
 27th January 2017. Added one more.
 28th January 2017. The centre made with cast off stitch.
29th January 2017. Both flowers have centres now.

Oh so pretty! I have to try it. Hoping Mum will continue to do well. Broken ribs are harsh.
