Well, things are getting back to normal here. I am still having some asthma, but basically I'm better. I've been working on my snowmen, and here are the ones I've done since last time.

This is my daughter's snowman.  Notice her glass of wine.  She has 3 kids so I gave her 2 snow angels, and then Joey is back by the house jumping around.  You just gotta' know Joe to appreciate this!
The block below is almost, but not quite finished.  My son is a geophysicist and he loves the west and, of course, rocks.  This is his unfinished snowman at the Grand Canyon. I found this color sheet and totally adapted it.  I love that he's standing on a rock.
This is my daughter-in-law's snowman.  She used her initials and was very original.  I just added a branch and she's hanging vines.
This is my granddaughter's. She is into some anime thing so she drew her snowman to be a character in the series.  The perspective is a little off, but I love it.
And this is the other 5 year old's.  She has her dogs.  Buster is at the bottom and Millie is chasing a cat at the top.  They are all very happy.
I went down to the sewing room and made two more patterns this morning.  I also finished packing up my Christmas decorations.  They are packed up, but not put away.

So I continue to listen to news and worry about our country while I sew.  Talk about hell in a handbasket!!

Great design site

I'm guessing you already know about this site, but they have the most beautiful designs and it's a free BOM!!

I am updating  because it's Monday.  I continue on the same path.  I am still sick with asthma, sinus, and coughing.  I haven't cared about accomplishing anything until lately.  I have gone back to my handwork and am working on my daughter-in-law's snowman.  I'll put a picture up when I get it finished.

Valentine's Day was uneventful here.  I am blessed to have a wonderful husband who has made me laugh for the last 32 years.  We spent the day with each other and some of our family.  I couldn't ask for more!!

Here is my dream!!
Have a good one!! Pictures later in the week!!

Cough, blow

Well, I am still here chugging along.  But slowly.  Blowing my nose and coughing as I go.  I made a horrible mistake.  I didn't go to the doctor when I realized I was going to need to go.  Instead, I loaded up the car and went to see my boys in North Carolina wrestle!

So it was really, really fun.  Really.  Lost my voice by 9:30 Saturday morning.  Went downhill from there.

Mistake #2.  Decided since I already had a physical, I'd just wait until Tuesday.  So let's count.  I knew I should go Thursday.  Didn't go until Tuesday.  This stuff had all those days to dig in and it acts like it's here to stay.  Have done nothing for 4 days except cough and whine to my husband, poor guy.

But they were worth it!
