I have a few things to talk about in order of importance.
1st I'd like to ask a favor. Please in your prayers would you add my friend Lori Rippey, (homespunquilts) and her husband Brian. It's a long story that started a month ago when Brian went to the hospital to get his back pain checked out. I'm making this story shorter,but the diagnosis didn't make sense to them or me,I do remember a little from my nursing days, and Brian still hadn't been feeling good. He drove himself to the hospital,I think it was Tuesday evening,because he wanted to get his heart checked out while it was doing what he had been experiencing. Well what has ended up is that this family has experienced a HUGE MIRACLE!!! Everything fell perfectly into place and he was life flighted to another hospital where there where Mayo Clinic Dr.'s awaiting his arrival to do emergency surgery that saved his life!!! Turns out that all this time he had a large anuerisym from his heart almost reaching to his lung. I prayed SO hard when Lori called to tell me he was in surgery,she had been keeping me informed. But from the beginning in my heart I KNEW he was going to be OK!!! He has a long road of recovery ahead, but he'll end up better than ever now because everything will be working right again. I'm encouraging Lori to do the best she can taking care of herself, because it's VERY hard on the people who aren't the patient too. I'm thankful for the great support she has there with her and that I can at the very least be here for her when she calls me.
Thank You Dear God!!!
2nd I want to say Thank You to all who kindly commented about my visits from the finch!!! Comments mean SO much to me!!! Ater I wrote that post I didn't see him anymore,till yesterday when he came back 1 time and pecked harder than he ever had on the window!!! THANK YOU ALL AGAIN!!!!
So 3rd. I guess you may have noticed the pictures I've been adding to this post LOL!!!!
This is, "Lavender Ladye Pinkeep". She's another wonderful pattern by my friend Lori Brechlin,Notforgotten Farm. I have coined a new word for these hangy things I make, "Hang Its" because you can hang them anywhere you want to.
Now about "Lavender Ladye" She's wearing a beautiful marbelized hand dyed skirt. I've handstitched her face and used teeny tiny black buttons that I sanded down. After I hand sewed a vintage wool backing I stuffed it with crushed walnut shells and of course sweet smelling dried lavender. To make it a "Hang It" I used antique lace pinned on the back with rusty safety pins,so that you can adjust the length if you'd like to. "
"Lavender Ladye" is 4 1/2" X 4 1/2" and 10" long with the antique lace hanger.
I'm asking $54.00 for "Lavender Ladye" with FREE shipping.
I'm working on a black "Lavender Ladye" now.
Again Thank You with all my heart,you WONDERFUL people out there,you are a bigger part of my life than you know!!!!!
