I'm back and I won too!!


 Yes, it's true...I have been for quite a while...I have been busy taking care of my dear husband, Don...he had his foot surgery...they didn't have to fuse the toe after all...that was a good thing...the doctor drilled holes to encourage more cartilage to grow. The problem has been sleeping...or shall I say lack of sleep! He has had a very hard time sleeping and therefore, so have I! But today he seems to have turned a corner and is much better...not taking any more pain meds...he said he doesn't need or want them any more...so I can start getting back to my regular routine...and go back to gardening and sewing! Yippee!!

I won a give away last week and look at everything that was inside!!I couldn't believe how much there was  when I opened the box! There were so many charts, kits and floss...I will really enjoy working on all of these projects!! Thanks so much to Autumn...you can visit her here...
Here is a pretty Valentine chart...can you believe I forgot to take a picture of the original chart that was on the give away...I will tribute that to the lack of sleep...but that's the first one I will make!!
I really like this kit too...such a cute pair...this one will be a fun one to work on as well!! I can't thank Autumn enough for all the goodies!!
On another note...the weather has been very warm here lately...today it looks to be cooling off...it is February after all! I hear talk of a possibility of rain tomorrow...I sure hope so...it has been so dry and windy here for such a long time and I am VERY over the wind!! I have gotten quite a bit of gardening done though...although ...then the wind picks up and blows all kind of stuff in my yard...the other day I went outside and thought I had a plastic bag tree...it was my tiny little Japanese Maple full of plastic grocery bags hanging from it!! Who knows where all of those bags came from...so calm air and some rain will be a very good thing!
Until next time...and I hope it won't be such a long time...
Enjoy your day!!!

So glad to hear Don is healing well. Hope both of you can get some much needed sleep now.
Wow! You hit the jackpot with that win.
We've had the same unusually warm weather here too, but rain forcasted tomorrow. We sure need it too.
I keep thinking we will be hearing that we will be down your way again, but so far nothing.
Happy sewing and gardening.
