Well, I thought my life was going to get back to normal, with mum's last therapy appointment last week. However, the same day as her last appointment, my aunt had surgery on her knee, so we spent the day at the hospital, then went to therapy. Tomorrow night, I'll be spending the night with my aunt, so I can ferry HER to therapy bright and early Wednesday morning! Anybody know where I can buy a used taxi cheap? *G*
My poor aunt - she lost a lot of blood during the surgery, so they gave her something to help. Unfortunately, they didn't read her chart to see that she was allergic. SEVERELY allergic. She's a nurse herself, has taught and specialized for many years, and she really gave them what for. I hope they listened!
I have been sewing, off and on. We're in winter-type weather now, which makes me ache, so when I saw a neat tutorial for a shoulder rice bag, I had to try it. Mine is not nearly as pretty as hers, I used white muslin in case it didn't turn out right - but I LOVE it.
Seriously, if you know anyone who has shoulder or neck pain, or just tense muscles, make them one. This is an awesome tutorial! From Alissa at Crafty Endeavor.
Then too, I've been stitching. I finished block two from Kaaren's Raggedy and Friends quilt....
I'm still plugging away on block one from Homespun....
Plus two other stitcheries. But before I finish those, my cousin is going to have a baby, and it's a girl! The shower is December 1. Remember those half-square triangles I was making? I picked out all the pink, and am making a baby quilt. I fortified myself first.
Love it when my son goes to Walmart. He always gets me something.
I have all the triangles pressed open now, just have to cut off the dog ears and figure out the layout.
I really like those stars on my design wall. But I also LOVE to see them all marching in the same direction. I don't know...maybe I'll have to make two....plus, I've decided with the rest of the hst's, the non-pink ones, I'm going to make hubby a quilt for Christmas. He's the only one I haven't made a quilt for, and he's the one who bought me my sewing machines. About time, don't you think? And besides, it's the only thing he doesn't already own.
So, I'll see you on Thursday, I'll be gone the next couple of days...happy sewing!!!
