About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

Happy New Year! Yeah I know I'm about 20 days late!

But I have a good excuse....sort of....  my hubby has been sick again, multiple trips back and forth to drs offices, labs, X-rays, echocardiograms, etc.   He has heart failure so they've been monitoring him closely.    He seemed like he was getting better then last Thursday night he went to get ready for bed and was bleeding from his rectum.  So off to ER we go.   They admit him, do a bunch of tests, start him on IV iron because his blood was was so low.  Called in a blood/hematology specialist who ordered a bunch more blood work.   He had a colonoscopy and found that he had a large hemorrhoid that needed to be removed.   Meanwhile hematologist decided to do a bone marrow aspiration because every lab work was coming back fine.   The colonoscopy was done Saturday.   The bone marrow aspiration was done Sunday and we got to go home.   Monday he had to go back for more IV iron.   Wednesday he had to go for a liver spleen scan.   Then f/u from hospital to family dr.  Meanwhile he woke up in horrific pain at his big toe....turns out he has gout.   Today to the surgeon to schedule the procedure to remove the hemorrhoid which will be done Monday.   He also has been diagnosed with mild dementia and when he's in the hospital or an unfamiliar environment he gets even more confused so I end up staying at the hospital with him the whole time because he's less agitated that way.   He is only 67....  :(    Tuesday is a follow up at the cardiologist office.  

I completed a quilt for my granddaughter Skylar and gave it to her for Christmas and I have some pictures of things I made that I took with my iPad but I don't know how to download the pictures from my iPad to my blog yet!  LOL!  So those will come.  

I'm so tired and every day is going from one place to another.   My house is a mess, unorganized.   My craft room looks like a hurricane and tornado hit.   So my crafting mojo is kind of in the tank right now.   I'm hoping next week will be better.   I really need to get things straightened up so my creative juices can flow freely!  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!  Sorry there were no pictures!
