Good Friday morning!!! well at least it is for me..I have been battling "the passing of the kidney stones" for 64 hours and 25 minutes..but whose counting..at precisely 4:25am this morning I passed 4 stones..I think there is still something in there..but I do feel so much better..see the "black" one in there? well it is bigger then all 10 I have passed so far..
not a great picture..but at least I feel better..and it was a stormy day..just rain and a bit of wind..lol...:)
I ordered some books about a week ago and they came on tuesday..I am reading the one on the right...and it seems pretty easy to follow..so now I have to get list going and go and purchase and get this ball rolling..been at a stand still and with all the bloating from the stones..I don't want to get on the scales..the one on the left..has the same foods but they cut the calories in half...
can't wait to read these as well..so we can grow a better veggie garden..and have a prettier one to boot..
this is what I worked on all day yesterday..have it 95% done..just need to sew on the stems, leaves and do the boarder..I am making this for that gal that sent me a check and said make her something..she lives in alaska, loves flowers, berry picking has a log home and has black bears in her area..I think I nailed this one..I love it..
I machine embroidered this part..it took about 2 hours..
I used a cookie cutter to make the moose..
and the bear..
the strawberries and flowers are sizzix..the pennys I purchased on line...I hope she likes it..;)
these 2 that I showed you will be going on towels..so need to do the blanket stitch on them and they will go in my etsy store..then its on to more projects..Cindy gave me a great book recently and I have copied a bunch of pages so I can make my designs up now...I have something else I want to work on..a wall hanging of sorts..well that is it for me..take care and have a great weekend..Thank you for your prayers and well wishes..I know my prayers were answered both nights...:)
