Time for a Check-up!

We are headed to Minnesota and Mayo Clinic again,
and there is no snow in the forecast this time!
Actually, the daytime temperatures should be above freezing while we are there!

This is my first post-surgery check up.
I am eager to hear my surgeon's thoughts about my current condition and future treatment.

I have the little bishop* from yesterday's entry packed, and plan to do some smocking as we drive.
Or, I may just enjoy gazing out the window and not thinking about a thing!
If all goes according to plan, we will take a few detours on the way home and visit with family and friends.
I think both my husband and I are ready for a little vacation.

I might check in and maybe share an adventure or two from the road.
Otherwise, see you back here soon!

* I referred to the bishop as "tiny" in my entry yesterday, and a dear reader wondered if I was using a special pattern for small sizes.  It is a size 0-3 months from Ellen McCarn's regular Baby Bishops pattern.  It is just much smaller than anything I have stitched recently!  I usually make a larger size for baby gifts, so the baby will have something to wear later.  This time, I wanted to give something that she might be able to wear home or for Easter.

I hope you have a very safe and wonderful trip up North. I also will be praying for a great check up and that everything is healing well.
Your baby bishop looks delicate and wonderful. I think I might need to look into some small bishop smocking plates for my tiny one. So glad you can smock again.
