My son and his girl went away this weekend, so I had to run over on Sunday to check on his kitty. Mum went with me. He has a tri-level home, which means lots of stairs, and mum doesn't do well with stairs -
She went in on the ground floor level, walked over to the stairs going up, sat down, bumped her way to the floor, and we scooted her over to the stairs going down - she bumped her way down those, then we placed her walker so she could pull herself up. There's no bathroom on the ground floor level so this was totally necessary, lol. We laughed so hard!!!! She's a trooper, always. Sophie was so very glad to see us, I don't think she stopped purring the whole time!
I wanted to give you an explanation why I haven't been around to your blogs. I've had a great deal of trouble lately with my right shoulder, so computer time is very limited. I think it's my pillow (that I've been using for years without issue) and am on the hunt for a new one. Now my jaw is giving me fits - I have serious TMJ issues - can hardly open my mouth to eat. I did buy a new pillow yesterday, and while it's better today, I'm still hunting for the perfect pillow. Behave yourselves until I'm better, ok?
I've also been working very hard on October's issue of the Applique Club.
October's Calendar Bird is ready for applique, and some detailed stitching! Needs his hat brim, pumpkins need detail, and all that....
So you see, I haven't just been sitting around! I've been watching the news coming out of the Bahamas while I work, and praying for all I'm worth. Please, please keep those folks in your prayers.
Now some news. In 2016, I participated in The Road Home Row-Along with Marian at Seams To Be Sew. Every year she hosts one and they are fantastic!! Well, Marian has set up a gallery of each row-along, you can click here: Row-Along Gallery to see each year and find the patterns. Some are still free, some are not - mine is, and Marian is hosting it on her blog in the gallery. The pictures of each year are at the bottom of the post, click on a picture to be taken to that year's gallery.
Note: you can also find my pattern in my facebook group files, link on sidebar.
Marian is hosting another row-along this year, it just started,
how fun! She has some great sponsors and giveaways as well! Click here: Once Upon A Story Row Along to see the posts and collect the patterns!
That's all from me today, I hope you all have a wonderful day spending time doing what you love best - I'll be doing laundry and dishes in between sewing! Not that laundry and dishes are what I love, but I do love having clean dishes to eat on and clothes fresh from the dryer.....
See you soon!
