TuTu spends day with Lil Sophie Sue


Sophie was so wide awake so mommy decided to give her a bath, first she had her fingernails clipped..can you believe it they have lights on the nail clippers..would have been nice when mine were little..Isn't she a cutie pie..I crop this one..
After her bath and close up



Mommy got her all dressed up after her bath..she doesn't like her hair and face washed, mine did not either..lol




Mommy holding Sophie while she is sleeping..

Just want you all to know I drove myself there all by myself..I was so proud and knew I could do it ..now I can drive..my new car is not like the Lumina-sp, this one when you take your foot off the pedal it slows down where as with the Lumina the speed stayed the same..so I was a little nervous about that but otherwise..did great...

Have a great day and a great weekend..I am going to start cooking for Thanksgiving and put in the freezer, as I can't do it in one day anymore..too much for my bod to deal with..We will spend it with Terrance, Kim and Lil Sophie Sue..Mom and Mike just getting over what they think was the flu will not come..afraid for our little one..which is fine with me..but won't be the same..

Playing aroun with my Husky Star embellisher all kinds of goodie


I played around with different types of fabric with this post card, a bit smaller for what I really wanted to do..I have tulle, silk ribbon, blue, funky yarn, and wool roving over some leaves... Wanted to add silk paper i made, some piece of dollies..but not enough room so now comes the stitching and beading..I am making another one..with fabric, and I will add the above that I did not on this.. I have the Christmas card put together and just have to finished them out..no machine on these..I am going to use some glitter, love it for Christmas cards..and beading..it will give me something to do in the evening..have a great day, hugs, Lorraine

What's in the horizon for me

I love this little bag, only one skein and have a whole book of different styles to make..as you all can guess I love purses..I have many I have paid a pretty penny for but hardly use them, made a bunch of felted bags a few years ago but never kept one for myself..so far I have knitted 5 and one almost done...none of them have been felted..what I like about the one skein bags, they do not have to be felted..once you are done knitting them you can use them right away..I am hoping to sell a couple..

New pattern from Ruth Blanchet..she will have a class on it so I know I will sign up for these..These bargellos looks wonderful on a wall..have to make it..lol



This is Mary's my twins purse I am doing right now...should have been done with it, but being an artist and such, when it comes to orange...I am not a happy camper working with this color..I added pumpkin fun fur to help it along for me..lol this is the first one I had to start from the top and knit to the bottom..will have it done by next week sometime..the other purses are all in a washing bag ready to be felted..






Oh how I want to stop every thing I am working on and make this cute dragon...for who, I have the foggiest idea but maybe I will wear it..lol isn't it darling..

Right now after taken a really bad fall the other night..on my knees first, than my chest and my face in the ground..I tripped over my black wrought iron flamingo that had fallen and did not see it, it scraped my ankle up my cafe pretty good..I did not get up as I was waiting for dh to help me up but he did not..and those awful pit bulls were growling and barking and I just know one day they are going to be in my yard chewing me up...so I got up as fast as I could..the pain started right away from my chest in front and was going to my back and up my shoulders..and it hurt so bad I did cry for little bit..I have never had heart burn really bad but I thought is was that and realized it was not..I thought I broke a few ribs..but I did not..had a hard time breathing..took my pressure and it was 220/110 and I should have went to emergency but dh would not take me..so I am still suffering with the shoulder pain..from my chest but not as bad..haven't done anything but knit here and there..When my Dr's office the next day to give me a date for a referral to another dr..I told the nurse what was going on and she told me that I should have gone in to emergency with my pressure that high...we are worried about my pressure as it has been running high, both Dr Floyd and my heart specialist, Dr Gordon..but that is my dh..

So today or what is left I would love to change what I am doing and do something else...but gotta finish what I have started..to think, I have a baby diaper stacker to finish, about an hour left, my sister's orange bag, cut up more appliques for Lil Liam's quilt, make a fb post card that I am really late but she gave me more time..that will be the first thing I will do..I need to make my Christmas placemats and napkins before the holiday is here and gone..so that is a lot but as far as the time to do them is not bad..if I could just work like I did many years ago..in fact I take a look at this blog and see some of the stuff I have made and really can not believe I made them..I told myself not to go there, sounds like a person losing one's confidence..and I don't want to do that..where is my muse, lol lol have a great day all and weekend..dh just came home from having his gums and bones on the bottom scraped and cut to fit dentures in Jan..yuck..we both will be in bed soon..I take my nap about or between 1-3pm in the afternoon..hugs, Lorraine
