Good news is, I had my 2nd Xray and Dr's appt on Friday and the fracture is healing on its own. The doctor said I have all of my passive motion back which made him happy. I am still in shoulder isolation which sucks. I still can't drive, bathe myself, do anything weight bearing with my left arm, etc. BUT, I have another appointment on the 28th and if the fracture looks good, I should be able to get out of my sling and start weight bearing physical therapy and start moving my arm up and down again (YAY - I will be able to DRIVE!). Being stuck in the house has made me this side of Ca-Ray-Zee! One of my sweet best friends came out today and took me to lunch and took me to some local junk stores. It was fantastic company and I had a great time. Tomorrow the kids have a cross country meet, so the hubs will take me to that.
I did have some bad news. A wonderful man who owned a local general store died yesterday.
We went in his General Store almost every Saturday when we were downtown. He had all kinds of fudge and candies and these fantastic Cherry Cokes that we have become addicted to. He always welcomed us like family. He had a booming voice and a giant personality. The downtown scene won't be the same without him and I am blessed that my family got to know him. RIP Brother :(
On to today's dress, today's pattern is a beautiful peasant style dress with a pieced skirt. It has shirring (again??? YES, its easy and its cute and my left arm doesn't work well so we are going with it :) ) And, we are back to Juvie Moon again. http://www.juviemoon.com/ This pattern is the Lis http://www.juviemoon.com/lis.htm. It comes in a girls sz 3mo - 12. It is gorgeous. This is their sample from their website
See, I told you - ridiculously cute.
Here she is in her size 12 version, still rockin on the fabrics we bought from The Cottage Mama. OHHHH and Lindsay's (The Cottage Mama) new book is shipping now if anyone wants to order it. I can't wait to get my grubby little hands on it! http://thecottagemama.com/product/book-pre-order/
And look at this necklace. It is soooo pretty. I got it last weekend at the Cotton Pickin' Fair at one of the antique booths. <3 it! It went SO well with this dress.
So, that's all for today, friends. Thank you for stopping by. Hopefully, I will keep getting some endurance back and I will eventually stop getting the headaches I am getting by the afternoons that slow me down. I never knew an injury could make you feel so bad!
And don't forget Thursday is the Project Runway FINALE!!! What team are you on?? My favorite designer Kate was voted off so I am between Dom and Justin. Can't wait to see their runway looks. Still don't understand how Alexandria is still on there???? Wha wha what??
Awww, thanks for sharing about the book! The dress looks beautiful on her......and the fabrics are so pretty together. Great job, girl!!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to get it!! I will be stalking my ant infested mailbox all week until it gets here! I am SOOOOO excited for all of the things happening for you! You deserve all of these wonderful blessings. I can't wait to live vicariously through you at Quilt Market. I AM going one day!Delete
Lovely dress. I have a hard time getting my 5th grader to wear things like that though. She is so hard to sew for. I didnt realize you were in Ga. Me too! Newnan. Where are you?ReplyDelete
I have some patterns that are more older girlie that she will be wearing, too. Im trying to keep the pretty dresses thing going for as long as she still wants it. I have a lot of knit patterns that are more should I say contemporary tween? We are actually not far from you. We are down outside of Columbus. We have been up to Newnan many times. You have a Charming Charlies and we down here are jealous :) Thank you for coming by!Delete
Im looking forward to seeing all you have to come. Keep on healing and keep up the good work :) My daughter loves Charming Charlies. Fun place to shop. I love how its broken up by color.Delete
