It's been awhile ....

I didn't realize it has been two weeks since I last posted.  Hubby went to Pensacola to visit with his dad, so I had all these plans, things to do....  but good intentions sometimes don't happen.  Thursday I felt fine, went out to eat dinner, an hour later chills, pain when I touched my elbow and sick in stomach,  I thought I had the virus that was going around.  The next morning I stayed home and thought I was on the mend, but my elbow was still sore, then on Saturday noticed a red patch on my elbow and red streaks and my elbow was swollen three times it's normal size and thought oh no!I had surgery two years ago and ended up with lymphadema and have to be very careful, so I called my doctor and they decided that I had cellulitis, luckily it was caught in time so now on heavy duty antibiotics, slowly getting better.

But I did get something sewing done, not as much as I would have liked.  And I also bought myself something--A Kindle Fire.  I have to learn how to use it, but I think I am going to enjoy it.

 I also made up one of the snowmen, from Sweet Meadows Farm, I bought the pattern in December and just never got it made, so I made him a Valentine's Snowman.  I also used a rusty nail for his nose instead of the embroidery.
 Finished another mama doll for a customer,  she is one of my favorites to make, but she takes me several days to complete.
 These little girls have also kept me busy, I have had orders for lots of these.

We've been having great weather, low 30's at night and high 50's and 60's during the day.  Need some rain desperately. Well, I guess I have rambled enough, we have tomorrow off and then back to work on Tuesday.  I hope everyone has a great week.  Cyndy
