Some days don't go like you think they will

Happy Monday, friends. I think the fabric choice for today's outfit matches what's going on in my life. You know what they say - Into each life a little rain must fall. So, what's going on you  may ask? Well, yesterday, I was all geared up to run the North Face Endurance Series 10k on what is rated their most technical trail run. I ran this race 2 years ago and it certainly was a doozy. I am not a trail runner by any means. AND I went into it saying I was going to take it slow because I didn't want to mess up an ankle or a knee this close to the half marathon I have been training for. Well, my ankles and knees are (mostly) okay. We started the race and about a quarter of a mile in, I tripped on a downhill and I knew once I hit the ground and saw white I was in trouble. I got back up and tried to keep going. I couldn't. I couldn't move my arm. I walked back to the start line to the med tent where I was in so much pain I was in tears and nearly passed out/threw up. So, I got to take my first ride in an ambulance. They initially thought I dislocated my shoulder, but it turns out I fractured my scapula (shoulder blade). So, now Im unable to use my left arm. I'm in horrible pain. I'm basically useless. I have an appointment tomorrow with an orthopedist.There is some thought I may have torn a ligament but won't find that out until after an MRI.

The good news is I have 2 outfits done for this week. The scary thing is I have two other days to sew for. I am so dedicated to this challenge, I have to figure out someway to do it. I don't want to stop now. It's bad enough that my running season is over.

So, Im in a funk right now. I hate being dependent on people and I hate not being able to get done what I need to get done. Hopefully, I won't have to have surgery.

So, tonight I bring to you the upcoming release from Heidi and Finn that I had the privilege to pattern test. You can find Heidi and Finn patterns on Etsy at https://www.etsy.com/shop/heidiandfinn?ref=l2-shop-info-name and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/602746356411507/. This pattern is scheduled to be released Wednesday and they have lots of other great patterns.

Here is the Heidi and Finn Wonderland Dress in a sz 12








And what do you think of our new look?? I love it. It was done by Jenny at FrenchPressMornings on Etsy!

Pray for me so we can keep these outfits coming!!
