7:15 on a Saturday morning

I watched an episode of House last night. For those of you that don't follow that series, it's about a doctor (a diagnostician) who is SO smart. I only wish every doctor had the mad skills this doc has! lol I know, I know, he only plays a doctor on television. Anyway, in the episode I watched last night, (catching up on my DVR recordings) a woman was admitted to the hospital with strange symptoms, as usual. This woman, however, was an addicted blogger. Every move she made was posted for her blogging fans to read and comment on. Even when she had to decide whether to have a pig valve or plastic valve to help her ailing heart she asked her followers to comment to help her decide. Needless to say, her husband was furious with her addiction.

I only relate the previous story to let you know that I am not that diligent about writing about every move I make. Somehow, I don't feel that those of you that read my blog want to hear EVERYTHING. Am I right? So, I will continue to share a pic or two of my K (henceforth to be known as "Sweetie") and pictures of those projects I finish if I remember to photograph them before they go to their respective owners. Case in point..The following is a prayer shawl made for the sweet Angela, my sister's good friend who helped her move. Angela had the misfortune to be at the wrong place at the right time and was involved in a motor vehicle accident. She had to have many stitches on her beautiful face and in her mouth. Luckily, she was in her big honker of a pickup truck and was wearing her seatbelt so things could've possibly been much worse. The truck was totalled. Please keep her in your prayers that she heal quickly. The name of the color of the yarn I used is "chili". LOL. Judy says that's very appropriate for Miss Angela.

And, of course, here is our Sweetie! This is her favorite position to watch a little TV. When she's not on the floor. If you click on the picture you can see the crocheted "belt" I made her on the run. Her britches were not staying on those slim hips of hers so I fixed it. Her most recent word - DOE! Meaning "go!" Ready, set, DOE! Cracks me up every time to hear that little voice say that. Also rhymes with "NO" which she says with regularity. We have so much fun. Thank You, Lord, for this precious bundle and thank you, Rob and April, for giving me the opportunity to watch her grow. I love my jobs!

Weekend at Judy's

Here are only two pictures of the living room and a view to the dining room. We got a lot done, but she still needs a lot more done. I didn't take pictures of the rest of the house because we didn't get all of her wall deco up and there are still boxes in some of the rooms.
But, we made sure she had all she needed for the time being. She has been hobbling around on crutches because of fluid on her knee. I made her sit with her legs up the whole time we were there. Rob and April were a pair of awesome (and I mean that) work horses! They did SO much and I can't thank them enough.
We had quite a rain here yesterday and I couldn't resist letting K. out to play with the dripping water. She had such a good time. Looking back, I wish I'd let her out in the rain since she got soaked anyway.

Odds and Ends

I made this purse last night to give to one of my Thursday clients. This little lady has carried another purse I made for her for so long now that the handles are fraying. It's nice to see someone enjoying your handiwork so much that it's falling apart! LOL So, I'm going to surprise her with a new one. I took some liberties with the pattern and did not add the outside pockets on this one. I hope she won't miss them.
These are fabric postcards. I will be participating in a swap for the next few months so I've been practicing. The graduation cap went along with a grad gift. Aren't they cute? They're addicting, too. lol As if I needed anything else to occupy my time.
This prayer shawl went to another client who has had a rough month. They were on vacation, actually only the third day out, when she fell and broke her kneecap. They were sent back home for surgery. I gave her the shawl on Saturday when her hubby brought her to the shop. The color is not true in this picture. It's a deep purple and lilac.

Time to get ready for work. I'd rather be quilting!! lol
