On the road to recovery

015Isn’t he the cutest little guy – this is one of our new pigs.  We found him at Justice. The picture was on the camera when I downloaded some other photos so I thought I would show him off.

I am feeling much better today. Thank you to all of my well wishers. I had to work last night and when I got off this morning I felt better than when I went in, so the medicine is doing its thing.

My sewing buddy from work, Tim, made this great project bag for me for my birthday.017He has only been sewing/quilting for a very short while and he is awesome. He makes lots of handbags, he made a very cute baby quilt in which he pieced together boat blocks and embroidered Bermuda on, it was gorgeous. A great embroidered Sponge Bob quilt.   He also made his partner, Jeremy, an awesome suede quilt, it is unbelievable, I have to get pictures to show you. Anyway, he has come a long way in such a short time. Quilting/Sewing is definitely his calling.  Isn’t it great!!!018I got a message from one of my best buddies today. April is in Japan, her husband is a doctor in the Air Force. She wasn’t very happy about going to Japan but I think she is liking it now. I sent her out on a mission to find cute pig stuff. She said she just sent off a box to us full of pigs, bento boxes, pig fabric, etc. I cannot wait to get it. I told the kids and they are very excited, Alice kept going outside when we got home looking for the package. I told her it would be quite a while coming from Japan.

Well, I need to get back to resting. I still cannot sew. I think the vertigo still has my eyes out of whack.  Maybe tomorrow!!

Have a great day!

I'm glad you're feeling a bit better Jennifer. You're lucky you didn't break anything when you fell.

Hey, LOVE the new graphics on your blog! Nice bag and right up your alley. Wow....Tim is bypassing us all in skill. Tell him Hi and NICE JOB! Noticed that it's a sewing machine. How cool. Can see an owl in the fabric but can't make out the rest. Hope to see it in person soon. :) Hope you are resting and not up looking at this this! lol Hugs....
