A good couple of days sewing no matter how small the project is still a
good couple of days sewing. Made a pair of curtains for the bedroom that
was in dire need. it needs more than new  white curtains but that's a
start. I cut them a little short and rather than let that throw me I cut
a piece of fabric 2x the depth I needed and serged that on with a
flatlock stitch in a pretty blue. I had already done the inside edges
with a serged picot stitch in the same color. Worked well because I
wanted some kind of decorative stitch at the hem line.
I made a pair of pillows for a DGS today to give him tomorrow for his
bedroom. Very sport oriented. I also delivered the rest of the light
panels that DS wanted over the weekend.
n top of all that my ortho doc discharged me, discontinued my therapy
and told me he thought I could do the rest on my own. So I'm ready to
take on the world now and maybe make a pair of pants, I've been wanting
forever, in a dark green linen/rayon I have in the stash.

Juno, what wonderful news that your doc says you're "done".  ;-)
The curtains sound really nice, and DGS owes you some extra hugs
for the sports themed ones.

Way to go, Juno!  Your projects sound great, but the best news is
getting discharged by the doctor.

Thanks to both Doreen and Beverly. The discharge was a great incentive
to me. I feel like I've conquered Mt. Everest.
Beverly, I never worry about getting extra hugs from the DGS I made the
pillows for. He's such a lovable and loving child. He gives lots of hugs
and lots of I love yous to Poppa and me. He's also a snuggler.

That's wonderful!  My DGS is 16-going-on-17, and I *still*  get a
huge hug each time we're together, and another with an "I love
you, Grandma" when we part.  'S Wonderful!

Beverly, making headway on *marking* the kilt pleats, and about
to start the actual stitching....

chipping away bit by bit.

Re: a good couple of days sewing

G'day Juno

Great news, congratulations on being discharged by your doc...only hope
I get the same in two weeks after my very recent cancer surgery.

The dark green pants sound nice too.  I must get started on some 'tween
season 3/4 pants as I only wear long pants for about 4-6 weeks a year
because we have a very short and mild winter in this part of the country.

I has missed that about your surgrey, Bronwyn. Hope you are feeling
much better now and are getting around well.  Sending thoughts your
way for very good reports of the results.

Seems that too many folks weren't well last week.  Sure hope everyone
is doing much better this week.  Spring IS coming, in spite of the
snow and cold temps.

Re: a good couple of days sewing
Thanks Sharon.....can I make an OT comment here?  Just a reminder to all
you girls to make absolutely sure you keep up to date with your regular
health checks.  If I didn't have my regular PAP smear, then this cancer
would have been more widespread and possibly untreatable.  Not nice to
have your life put before you like that, it has been a very worrying few
weeks.

Only wish it was spring here, we are just going into Autumn.  Anyway
where I live, the winter is extremely mild so I'm not complaining.  Just
hope we get lots of rain to put an end to this drought.

Well, congratulations on having discovered it and getting
treatment right away.  Good luck!  Which reminds me, I'm a little
overdue for my PAP.  Thanks for the reminder.

You're sounding pretty chipper, so I take it that recovery is going
well. PAP smears we don't mind. It's those blasted mamograms . . .,
well, I'm sure you'll agree.  Happy you caught it in time and smacked
it.

One raindance coming up. Fortunately, the sun is melting the ice away
so it's much easier to find a grassy patch to stomp on.

Bronwyn, I wish you the very best of results. YOU stated in another post
that you are very faithful about your check ups. That's the biggest
thing in your favor. Well, that and a good attitude. From the sound of
your posts your attitude is great.
I delivered the pillows yesterday and they went over very well. They
have been named his Happy Pillows. Little brother put in a request for
some pillows with the "CARS" pictured. Found the fabric on the Internet,
It's a Disney print, ordered it and it should be here in a few days. It
was a good price for a Disney print.

Re: a good couple of days sewing
Juno, DS gave the 8YO, his DN, the CARS DVD for Christmas and she loved it.
Her Dad & Mom had taken her to see the movie  Recently, someone mentioned
they bought the fabric at Wal-Mart and DS bought some(his first fabric
purchase ever) and I've made her a sundress, and have enough to make her a
pillowcase and she is thrilled with both.  The fabric is light blue w/all
the different cars in the movie.

Don't you love the Disney prints. They are so cute. I know The little
guy is thrilled that I found the fabric.I'll bet the sun dress is adorable.
Juno

Re: a good couple of days sewing
Thanks for the well wishes.  Trying to keep a positive attitude, hard
sometimes, but I have too much fabric and embroidery thread to check out
just yet!!  LOL

Congrats on the pillows.  Isn't it great when the kids love what you
make?  I saw the Cars movie in early January and just loved it.  My DGD
got two of the Cars Matchbox cars for Xmas and treasures them, can't
blame her because they are so cute.
