First the silly. Well, not really silly - just fun. I'm still at my aunt's, although tonight I'm sleeping in my own bed. More on that in a minute.
Since I've been unable to go anywhere this summer, I've been shopping. I found the sweetest little local store in Lake Orion, MI, called Vignettes - I really need to go back there with my camera. I found the cutest wall hooks, they're cast iron and they suit me perfectly...
Aren't they gorgeous? Her shop is very shabby chic, with lots of hand-crafted goodies, painted furniture, and now clothing....can't wait to take my aunt there.
Then a new local quilt shop opened. OH MY. You know I had to go there, right?
I had some help taking photos and opening the bag.
I got the loveliest fat quarter bundle of London prints. I have an idea for a small wall quilt with these.
And a fat quarter for a far-away friend [far in distance, not in heart].
Some for keeping, some for sharing [someone just had a birthday I missed...]
Think that gives me something to look forward to? Me too.
And now for something serious.
Mum is having trouble. You might know she has diabetes - and when a diabetic gets an injury to their feet, it can get serious in a flash. Mum cut her big toe on something, and the wound is getting bad. We find out Tuesday if it's gone into the bone.
We took her shopping today, great fun watching her maneuver a scooter for the first time.
She was FAST on that thing.
She's in a lot of pain. She may lose the toe, or even the foot. I haven't made our reservations yet for our beach trip, and probably won't until we know what's going to happen. If you're a praying person, we would really appreciate your prayers. She's not sleeping due to the pain. And to add insult to injury, she has to go to the dentist tomorrow. She's getting it from both ends.....
But she can still smile for you, my blog friends.
I've not answered any emails lately, or been to blogs, I'm trying to take care of both mum and my aunt, in addition to working. No rest for the wicked, right? *G*
I'll see you soon, I must go pet my kitty [and my new fabric!!!!] before bed! Bed in my own room [have to take mum to her appointment tomorrow], I can hardly believe it!
