Dave's Doors

Dave bought extra doors for the Cherokee and cut them out to make half doors. He is now make vinyl snap on coverings for them. They are looking pretty good. I will get a picture of them once he puts them on the truck.

My Current Point of View

I've been working on the quilt all afternoon. Here are some pictures of it looking up which is how I've been looking at it most of the day. Also, a few pictures of how to tie it. I am not sure how many little ties I have done but it is a lot!!

David didn't go on his trip it was really nasty down where they were going to be. He is still waiting to see if they will go next weekend. We spent most of the morning shopping. We got up early to go to the commissary since they will be closed tomorrow for Easter. Then we had to go Jo Ann's and Hobby Lobby to get David some more snaps for his doors and I of course found several things I couldn't do without! I did plant the tomato plants in the topsy turvey but I will take a picture tomorrow. I think you are only supposed to put one plant in it but I put both of them in there so we will see how it goes. I got one Beefsteak and one Mr. Stripey (just because I liked the name)! I can't wait to eat the first one and get enough to make tomato pie.

I didn't work on the dolls today. I need to take them outside to spray the clear coat on them but the weather isn't cooperating. Maybe tomorrow.

I will post Dave's door pictures in the next post. That's it for today!!

Clothes Pin Dolls II

Here is the picture of how they are supposed to look. And pictures of me working on them.

I have also been working on the Pink Quilt. I am busy tying it and then I will bind it and it will be finished. I am hoping to get the tying done this weekend. It is supposed to rain all weekend so good time to stay inside and work on it.

We finally have some tulips coming up and I will try to take some pictures of those tomorrow if the weather is nice for a few minutes. I also bought a couple of tomato plants to plant in one of those topsy turvy planters. David hung me a hook to hang it from so I will also try to get that hung up tomorrow weather permitting. David was supposed to go 4-wheeling this weekend but of course the weather is not cooperating. He may go tomorrow depending on the weather or next weekend if everyone who was going this weekend decide to go next weekend. He has been making vinyl covers for his doors and I got a picture of him sewing on my old machine.

I got another shot in my hip for my bursitis and it is feeling better. The orthopedist wanted me to go back and see the neurosurgeon for my back pain so I have that all set up but have to get an MRI first so I will be doing that May 11 and see the Dr May 12. The orthopedist thought maybe I should try getting epidural shots, I did that once before I had my surgery and didn't get any relief but maybe it will be different now that I have had the surgery. In the mean time my primary care Dr wants me to increase my neurontin to 2000 mg a day. I am not sure about that, I already feel like a zombie all day on 1500, I think 2000 is going to knock me out. Hopefully when I see the neurosurgeon we will be able to figure all this out.

I also saw the hand surgeon for my thumb pain. I have had this going on for two years now and have had at least 4 shots in it and the last one didn't do anything for me. So, now I am going to have surgery on the joint to add a piece of tendon that they will take from my arm and roll up to put in the joint so there will be a cushion in there instead of rubbing bone on bone like it is now. I am going to get that surgery May 5. Next week is my last week at work and I don't have the start date for my new job so I am going to get this surgery done before I start the new job. Supposed to be in a cast for 6 weeks.

So, that is all the news for now. I will try to get some outside pictures tomorrow and hopefully some pictures of finished dolls!

Clothes Pin Dolls

I have been quite busy with my crafts lately. I am making these clothes pin dolls. I have four started, one blue, one green, one pink and one purple. I am still working on the faces on two of them and then I have to lacquer them and dress them and they will be all done!

Sorry, I have been so negligent in my posting. I don't know where the days go sometimes! We are going in and out of Spring around was so hot on Sunday and today it is freezing. I wish it would just make up its mind.

I have not done any crafting lately, I have the pink quilt on the floor and was busy pinning it in order to tie it but have not got back to it.

My last day at my current job is 29 April. I don't have my starting date at the other job yet but I am looking forward to having some time off before starting there any way.

I started my class last week and so far so good! I just found out that Britney had changed her major to History so I think she really is my long lost daughter!! LOL.

I keep going back in forth with hip and back pain. I got a cortisone shot in the hip yesterday and today my back is hurting! I am going back to see the neurosurgeon for my 2 year follow up from my spinal fusion, I have to get an MRI done before then and it is scheduled for 11 May, see the surgeon on 12 May. My hand is also bothering me again so I got a referral back to my hand surgeon to see if he can help out any. I think I may have to get the thumb joint replaced. Joy.

That's about it for now! I will get some pictures taken to post soon.
