Anyway, I'm home now and feeling better everyday. Mom and Dad have been over everyday to help and visit. In fact, they are grocery shopping for me today. Timm took off 4 days last week to be at the hospital and home for me...what an awesome guy he is. I think he worries a lot about me even though he won't admit it. I realize I do tend to do lots of things I probably shouldn't so he figures it's just par for the course. My kids have been good about helping me, I think they worry also.
On a crafty note, I finished tying the polar fleece blanket yesterday for Justin's boy. Today I am clipping rag quilts. I finished 9 of them before I went in so I would have something to do when I got out. Keep crafting everyone...it is still National Craft Month. I have faces to put on a few dolls and get them listed on Etsy and Artfire.
Thanks to all my family and friends for good thoughts, prayers, meals, and chores. I really do appreciate every bit of it. I can tell it's about time for another pain pill...and a nap.

I've made soup, chop suey, done a ton of laundry, changed the sheets, waxed the floor, pulled weeds most of the day on Saturday, and I've sewn 9 baby size rag quilts...5 of them today. I finished sewing up a fleece patchwork quilt today as well. It's pinned and ready to be tied off.
I need to shower, pack a small suitcase, re-make the bed and hit the sack. Need to get up at 4-4:30am to be there at 5:30am. Wish me luck!

Wanted to give the kitchen a more personal touch and thought this was a great way to bring me and what I love to do into the kitchen. I only had to scrub it off once..lol...no I didn't offically measure, I just started painting letters on the wall. I'm really glad we bought good quality paint.
I liked the way it turned out so well, I even painted on the header in the dining room. I am going with more Americana stuff in there but still wanted the outdoor/lodge feeling since you look into the living room from there so I think the wording is more in line with the outdoors than the other phrase I was going to overlay. Here is a close up view of the dining room. You can see the shading under all the lettering in it better.
Now, I think I will head to the bedroom next for more graphitti...lol

It still needs to be mounted and framed but that will come next week. I'm telling you I must have 1000 scrabble tiles and several game boards. I purchase them everytime I find one at a thrift store.
I think it turned out totally cool and unique and after it's framed out it will be awesome! They make such a cute couple and they are really good for each other. (So far they say no kids...just dogs)

I started this one when I found out Tim and Allison were pregnant. Guess what? They're going to have a boy. So, it looks like I will be saving this one for someone else's baby.
Here are a couple of closeups so you can see the flowers.
