Jerry has been off work; home ill for two weeks. He has finally just agreed today to go to the doctor; as he has taken a turn for the worse today. It is something stomach related--most likely gall bladder. (as we already know he has gall bladder disease.) He is having very strange symptoms...and NO he won't go to ER...well he said he just might in the morning. If not; he has an appointment with the gastro doc on Monday morning. (Hey, that is good for this man!)
I just realized today that it was two years ago today that he had his stroke. It took more than 3 days to get him to the ER for that! My inner me worries though, because his symptoms match the symptoms he had when they discovered his colon cancer. Well, anyway, you know me...just fly by the seat of my pants while carrying the world on my shoulders.
My little fabric business continues to grow and while I am not making as much as I would working outside of the home...I don't think I've eaten a bowl of beans since I started it up. LOL!!!! I am serious! I am very weary as I often have to stay up until 3 to work; but still so happy to be at home and not complaining at all about that! The ladies are so kind (as all quilters are!) and they encourage me, and help me as we all learn how to do this together.
I have two different people looking into helping me learn to draw the ahhhhs in a computer program. Isn't that wonderful?? Oh I just cannot wait...ecstatic!
Speaking of ahhhs...I love this week's as much as the last one. Of course with all going on; I didn't get it sewn, but I did get it colored...and the best part of that? As I ran upstairs to help my husband as he was gripped with vomiting (again)(no--that is not the best part); Stephen took over and helped me. (that is the best part) He is so gifted!
I needed to bring you this ahhhh. I know I didn't have to. But I did. For me. Hope you enjoy it :)
Ahhhhh 35 ---the Dutch Tile--- was published in the World Herald on Jan 4, 1934.
I started using new ahhhh drawing tools, and they work better than anything I've tried yet!
Yes, these Pilot friXion pens.
Did you know that that was an eraser on the end? It works so good, and doesn't leave any residue and completely removes the lines.
When I started drawing, I actually used the sewline pencil.
While it worked good for me, I know now that it is hard for you to see.
I am going to go buy some more FriXion colors tomorrow.
If you look really closely you can see that the hexagon is slice divided.
Then it has three lines borders all the way around the top, one at 1/4"; 1/2" and 3/4". (of course this is because my triangles are 1/2" size.)
This proud mother was quite impressed with his red line on the right side.
I wasn't there, but we've been working on him drawing on lines when we do his school work.
I can tell he tried to stay inside the area--that makes for a proud teacher-momma!
