Does anyone know the name of this pattern? This little pillow top was in a chair in my mother-in-law's home when we closed out her house. The lily pad and the flower are appliqued, and the rest is embroidery. It is so pretty, and so old looking to me. I washed it carefully, and I think is is lovely.
Did anyone just have a few moments of utter peace among the chaos? I had one such moment today. I was at work, nursing in the critical care unit. My patients had been fed, bathed, clean linens were on the beds, meds given, and they were peaceful, pain free and resting well. One of them looked up and smiled so big at me as I passed. The other was, at last, stable, with a reasonable blood pressure. The charting was done, no doctors were yelling orders down the hall, no alarms bells were sounding, no V-tach was impending. Just....peace. I felt this way for several minutes, and for the life of me couldn't think of the last time I had felt caught up like this. It lasted about 16 minutes, then it all hit the fan, if you know what I mean. But...for that little while, I felt more peace than I have felt in a long time.
Hope everyone is having a peaceful moment at some point today!!
