Hi everyone. Things have been a little bit crazy around here. Our dishwasher's pump blew a seal and flooded our kitchen and what started out to be a small thing we could fix ourselves has evolved into absolute mayhem! I am living out of plastic bins in the kitchen as half the floor and cabinets have been ripped out. Our insurance company is trying to get away with paying us as little as possible to replace our cabinets so that is an ongoing battle we have to win before things can get back to normal. And not to bore you further, but the insurance adjuster said we were lucky we have paid the high premiums of the deluxe policy! What would have happened if we had the mediocre policy?! Also our 12 year old chocolate lab has been having accidents all over our house when we leave to go someplace for a few hours. Frankly, I have been afraid to come home from work on many occasions lately. We have her on medication and have changed her food per the vet's instructions. Let's hope that is it. We would be heartsick to have to put her down. Also, my husband's truck broke down and I got slightly injured at work. So, enough of that. It depresses me just to keep talking about it!
As you see in the above picture, I sewed a bright flannel pillowcase for kids with cancer as part of my FNSI. It was fun to make it and I hope it can be a small way to comfort a kid going through such a harrowing and scary ordeal.
I also finished up this cute drawstring bag from Pretty Little Purses and Pouches. I love that series of books! This was a fun bag and not too difficult to put together. It was smaller than I thought it would be but it would be great for when you don't want to drag half of your stuff around. A lip gloss, cell phone, credit card, ID and a little cash would fit in there nicely.
I would love to gab, but I have dishes to wash(a new-found chore to add to the list) and a pooch to medicate as well as a son to pick up from his job. I wanted to include a picture of my sleeping angel. I had just changed the sheets this morning and fluffed my feather bed topper. She loves to sink down in it after I do that. She looks like she is laying on marshmallows! I hope you all have a great week. Take care. Nancy
