Pitiful progress, a late TUSAL update, and a free book!

I have been really bad about posting lately- I am so sorry! It has been crazy lately! Last week dh was admitted to the hospital- he had been at work and started sweating really bad, and having chest pains, and felt dizzy.  They took his blood pressure and it was pretty high, so he called our doctor, who advised him to go to the ER. They ended up admitting him and running a ton of tests.  They said it was only a muscle spasm, but still said he needed to follow up with our doctor in two weeks. He took it easy over the weekend and went back to work Tuesday. I'm so thankful it wasn't anything more serious.
I have been stitching a little bit- my mind has been motivated but my body has not. lol  Here is my pitiful progess on "F"-

And here is my very late TU SAL update-

And today I had a nice surprise in my mailbox- I was notified a few weeks ago that I had won a giveaway on goodreads. I received my book today- Pray For Silence by Linda Castillo. (Click the title for a synopsis.) I read the first book of the Kate Burkholder series and I'm excited to read the next one! I actually got the first book for free as well as the publisher was giving them away in a special promotion. 
Speaking of free, I was VERY blessed the other day- my boss's daughter had gathered a bunch of clothes that she was going to give to goodwill- then she happened to think of me, and wow! Four trash bags of clothes and every single thing I liked fit me.   Some beautiful clothes I can wear to work and some still had tags on them! Also some great shorts and capris, which I really needed. I am so thankful!   Well, I have to get little man to bed- so I have to sign off for now. I will really try to be better about posting, and reading everyone's blogs as well!

Your WIP looks great!
I'm so glad your husband was ok and it was nothing serious. That had to be seriously scary though...
Clothes passed from one to another is always a blessing! :)

So glad to hear that it was just a muscle spasm with your husband. But the anxiety level until you knew what it was.

Any stitching is progress, so don't worry about not getting a lot done - you'll catch up.
