We are home again after going to Nashville for our niece's wedding. It was beautiful!!!! You'll have to take my word for it, though, because I have no pictures. We visited my husband's sister's new home. Incredible!!!! The weather was nasty, rainy, cold, etc..... I actually wore REAL shoes. I found some very pretty ones that weren't toooooo uncomfortable. We met some really interesting people this weekend. My niece has married into a great family!!!
My nine year old grand daughter made this really neat apron for her friend's American Girl doll
for her birthday. There was no sewing involved. She used "stitch witchery" I think, and Velcro. I was very impressed!!!
I often blog about my mom. I thought I would post her photo. She usually won't smile for pictures, but she did for this one. She's been sick again. Whenever she gets a UTI it makes her get really confused for some reason. I'm told that it is common for this to happen with older folks. Anyway, every time I leave town she ends up getting sick. What's that all about?
When we were in the NE last week she called my brother in the middle of the night to tell him I'd been in an accident, which of course hadn't happened. He called the nursing home, and believe it or not, they had already picked up on this and had started her on an antibiotic. Of course, it wasn't the right antibiotic, but they didn't know that until the culture came back. While we were in Nashville for my niece's wedding this weekend. My cousin called to tell me that one of the CNAs had called him to tell him that she wasn't being herself. He went to check on her. When he called back he said that she was confused but not nearly as bad as he has seen her in the past. One of the nurses told him that they had changed her antibiotic. When we got home I went to help her eat dinner. She was somewhat confused, but not toooooo bad. I feel so good that the CNAs realized what was happening and told the nurse on duty right away. This doesn't usually happen.
Lots of bloggers have been blogging about their pets. Here is our cat, Vanilla, who is 18 1/2 years old!!! She gets really mad at us when we leave her! She fusses at us when we get home. She may be getting old, but she's still pretty feisty!!!
It's time to think about sewing for my grands for Christmas. Here are last year's dresses and one little suit. I am going to go shopping for fabric this afternoon. I'm thinking about using blue and silver or gray this year. I haven't ever used taffeta for them yet, so I'm going to look to see what I can find in it this year. I may end up with something else, who knows what I'll find. I haven't decided how I'm going to make the girls' dresses yet. I have in mind what I want for Little Man, though. Actually, his mom has told me what she wants.
