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 and on Facebook at 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!!
