Bee Doll

I finished up a doll I was doing for a guy at work. His wife collects bees and he saw this pattern by Back Porch Pickins when I was going through some patterns at work and he asked if I could make her into a bee for his wife.


I finished her tonight and everyone in the house likes her but I an wondering if I didn’t overdo the sunflowers. The pictures turned out horrible. For some reason it makes it look like she has a mark going down her nose and cheek, but when you look at her in person she doesn’t so I am not sure what it going on. But, here she is.


I am happy to say  I went to my doctor appointment yesterday and he confirmed I am not totally crazy I do have an ear problem. Apparently at one point in time, this has been going on for over a year, I had an infection (I get a lot of ear infections) and it caused the problems in my ears. So I have to do some things I am not happy about to help cure it, like no caffeine (I live off caffeine), lower salt, water pill (believe it or not this helps with pressure on your ears), and some other things. I can also play around on the Wii and do some of the balance games to train my brain to use other ways to keep my balance. I also have a mouth guard for TMJ that doesn’t just protect your teeth but trains you not to grind ????  Apparently, the pain he believes is from grinding my teeth so bad, yes I grind bad, have broken a couple teeth doing it.  I go back in two months to see if all this will help.  My fingers are crossed it wont, no Mountain Dew, no coffee, what will I live for? Just kidding, I guess another way to get healthy.

Well, it’s early and I am pooped, my ears hurt and Natalie wants to know why I didn’t mention her in my post so I am.  I love my Natalie!

Happy stitching!

I love her Jennifer! You did a wonderful job on her. If he isn't happy with her, you can send her to my house! :) I am glad the doctor was able to give you some answers... sorry that you have to give up your caffeine. I have had to do that once and hated it but did survive. Right now I don't know what I would do without my morning cappuccino.
