Greetings all! I'm afraid you find me this morning with a case of the crudds. You guessed it... I have come down with something too! My guys are feeling a lot better though and for that I am very thankful! We almost lost my husband a couple of years ago with a very bad respiratory infection so anytime he gets something related to that we get scared. Guess what I drank all weekend? This nasty stuff below. Dosen't it look yummy? NOT!
I was hoping it would make me feel better but it didn't really. As a last resort before going to the doctor, (which I after my toe incident you know I avoid if at all possible) I tried an onion pultis that my mother told my hubby to make me try. I think this must be one of my grandmother's Cherokee Indian remedies.Anyway I tried it and it helped to get my lungs to open up. Yesterday it felt like something was squeezing the air out of them. I was wheezing pretty bad and my inhalor just wasn't working. If I hadn't tried the onions I probably would have went to the ER. My mother's surgery went really well. She has one of the best plastic surgeons in town. She was up walking around later that day and had went home. She even went on a 6 hour round trip with my dad to pick up my sister. I thought she was pushing it with that one .She knew we'd all think so so she didn't tell us about it until after she came home. It's not that I don't want her helping my sister out, she couldn't be stranded. I just think mom should have taken it more easy is all.I know Doc Hawes would have had a fit. What do ya do?
Well here is No Bees all finished except for the framing. I like the way it turned out.I'm hoping to get a frame ordered from Hobby Lobby soon. They used to have thier frames 50% off every other week, but when I was in there the other day I seen this huge sign that said 'this week only'.I'm wondering if they are going to discontinue the every other week thing or if it was a ploy to get people to buy that week. Wouldn't surprise me if they discontinue it, they seemed to have a lot of other things I used to use. I really sound like a grump today don't I? I must find me something to put me in a better mood lickety split! Hot cocoa and stitching will do the trick!
LHN's Home of a Needleworker (too!) is completed! I will finish it into a pillow in the style of Pine Mountain's Tie One On series.
Watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat! Well... how about a quilt from a WIP stack! LOL! I started this quilt last winter for my son and I really need to get it done so he can use it this winter.It is a pattern called "Winter at the Lodge" using fabrics of the same name from Holly Taylor for Moda. I have thrown in a few other fabrics as well. I am handquilting it . I'm doing in the ditch quilting on the straight edges, stippling in the big blocks, and outlining the moose appliques. I can't machine applique worth a hoot so I hand appliqued them so that they would look like they were done on the machine. Took me hours to do that and I won't do that again. I must get better at machine applique so I don't run into that problem again! The fabric is flannel so Bear (Alex's nickname ) should be warm and cozy this winter.
It looks like it's sewn a little crooked but it's not. It's just the way that it's laying on the floor.It's been put away for awhile so it's a little wrinkled. Okay a lot wrinked! I'll fluff it in the dryer when I'm done and it will be fine.
Thanks everybody for all of your wonderful and sweet comments. If you haven't put your name in the hat for the giveaway yet there is still time. The post to do that on is dated Oct. 2nd.
'Til next time,
