Wow! Here it is almost the middle of November and I have definitely been missing in action. We have had a crazy few months here. After my heart attack, I made my DH an appt with my heart doctor as he only goes to his medical doctor twice a year. He has taken meds since he was 29. Well the EKG was abnormal and when he took the stress test he failed it so they did a cardiac cath and within a few days he was having open heart surgery. Had that on October 29th and is now home recuperating. Lots more work for me and I have actually not gotten much sewing done. My poor old machine keeps crying for me :)
I did make a cute purse from a sweater and messed up on a finishing seam so am carrying it myself. I really like it. Here are a couple pictures of it. More like a Messenger bag.
A couple of raggy stockings I made from Upcycled jeans. Put them on my Etsy site. I keep thinking maybe they are too primitive but they are cute in an odd sort of way.
I was going to cardiac rehab but got bronchitis and couldn't shake the cough. Had it for 3 weeks and finally after the 2nd antibiotic and prednisone for 10 days it went away. I also had a lot of problems with heart meds. Making me tired and then racing my heart rate up to 135. Think we finally have all of that figured out. Just when I was able to go back to exercise my hubby had 5 bypasses during open heart surgery. Needless to say all of the cooking, cleaning and chores are now falling to me. Felt so good to sew today.
We had 80 degrees yesterday and I walked for 25 minutes. Today only walked 15 minutes and now tonight the temp has really fallen.
I bought this giraffe fabric because I just fell in love with it.
Bought 6 yards and now have no idea what to make with it. I did list a
couple of yards on Etsy but no takers yet. It was not a cheap fabric so
I have a lot invested in it. Here is a pix. Any suggestions?
