a good couple of days sewing

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. Juno

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....

Thank you Emily. I have so many things to get caught up on and I'm chipping away bit by bit. Juno

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.

This is all WONDERFUL news!!! Good save on the curtains. I bet they look darling. I love blue and white in a bedroom. Very peaceful. :)
And I am just thrilled to pieces that the doctor released you!!!! YAY!!!!!!
I've got the itch to stitch myself. Spent the last couple days gathering all the documents that we need to finish the taxes. Ick!!!!!!!! But in the process I did find the Click and Sew pants software that I was just sure I'd bought myself but haven't been able to find in 2 years. LOL!!!!!!! See what happens while looking for more receipts for the basement remodel in the last house??? heh heh

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.

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.

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. Juno

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. Emily
