The end of last year was a busy and hectic one for me. I apologize for being slack on replying to the comments that have been made here. I hope I haven't permanently lost any friends because of it.
I purchased a calendar and am trying to prioritize and schedule my life so I can get to some point of normalcy. Sewing and blogging have taken a back seat for long enough!
First project of 2009 was a quick one. I had purchased an ugly pocket calendar 1/2 off knowing I could spruce it up.
I went to Fancy Tiger, a stellar shop - I think I'll try to get half of hubby's paycheck auto deposited there. They have Japanese fabrics, patterns and trims GALORE!!
I found these fabrics 30% off!
I made a little slip cover for the ugly cover of the pocket calendar. (Yes, it's a tad short.) I had some iron on transfer letters I used to personalize it. Not a work of art, but I love the fabric so much and I need a calendar of some sort - so, it's perfect for me!
They think they have all the infection out of her insides, they did have to remove her whole large intestine and her kidneys haven't started up again and they think she still has a blood clot near her liver. They have removed lots of fluids, so she is looking a lot better. She had a tracheotomy and the respirator was applied to that. She is conscious now so she is able to smile - HUGE progress!!
Your prayers and positive thoughts have been greatly appreciated and put to good use - thank you!!
