Answering the Mail
Wednesday, December 30, 2015      5 comments

I got a lovely message in SparkMail this morning from one of my teammates on Spin Me a Yarn. I figured since I wrote her a book back, the rest of you might want to read it, too. Yes, the shawl was a real challenge, way above my skill level... Read more
Warp Without Worry
Wednesday, December 30, 2015      7 comments

One of the goals I added to my goal board on Spark is Warp Without Worry. It seemed the first several times I put the warp on either loom, I got all tense and made a lot of errors. Now each time I do it is smoother and easier. At least I know... Read more

My husband is now getting his meds. Somehow they didn't get them, particularly the ones for his breathing (he has COPD). He looked a whole lot better today AND he showed more interest in what we were talking about. Knew where everything was a... Read more

Someone asked how my hubby is doing now. All I can say is that I went back to the hospital last night after using the laundromat to see him--sleeping, so right back home. I used a laundromat last evening for the first time in years. I wan... Read more
He's Resting...I'm Glad I Took Him In
Tuesday, December 22, 2015      12 comments

It's been a tough two days. We waited 5 1/2 hours to get my husband into a room at the ER. After that things went pretty fast (as hospital things go). As soon as a doctor talked with him he decided to admit him. I got four hours of sleep. ... Read more
Taking Him In

It's been a scary weekend. My husband has been having some worrisome symptoms (of I don't know what) but he didn't want to go to the ER. He said,"They will just keep me and do lots of tests." I couldn't deny that. It's been a week of n... Read more

I'm Cutting...
Thursday, December 17, 2015      5 comments

Yikes! It's scarry. Making a dog sweater out of my own plaid hand-woven fabric. Cutting into hand-woven fabric is just not like what you buy in the fabric stores. I'm sewing a zig-zag around the pattern and between the cutting line and the r... Read more

Monday, December 14, 2015      7 comments

Today I was focusing on my husband's health. I went to the Senior Center to talk with a Social Worker about what could be done since he's become pretty immobile due to leg cramps and he's losing weight as well. (Yesterday I logged his food int... Read more

The Plaid fabric for my daughter's little dog sweater is coming along fine. I've got 20" woven (enough to make the coat. I'm going to keep going as long as I have warp. That way, if I mess up the first time, I'll have more fabric to try again... Read more
