You can skip down to the first project if you don't care to read what has been going on in my life..haha
First: many of you know my brother was gravely ill (as of last September). He had a very rapid case of ALS. I was flying to Denver every 6 weeks to be with him. It was costly and my entire savings for vacation for this year, but I would do it all over again for the time I had with him. I lost my dear brother this past February.

Next, attempting to get back into shape, I was power walking 5-6 miles a day, swimming, lifting weights and climbing 15-50 flights of stairs a day to help with my osteoporosis. Yup, over did it and had to have back surgery. Since my brother was so ill, I didn't want surgery until my last visit so I was in a lot of pain till January. Surgery was success but left me with nerve pain.
Next, 5 days after surgery, our first grandson was born. Yippee! Welcome Wyatt
My first little project was a pillow case for my grand daughter. I made the pillowcase and using my Silhouette, I placed her name on it with heated vinyl. Washes great. She loves it.
|my huband was nice enough to help me showcase the project.|
