Update on mom and what I have been working on.

I want to thank everyone for their concern and prayers for my mom. She had an appoint.

tues. at UVA, where they did xrays and took out her stitches and staples from her arm and leg.

They both look great, now we are just waiting for the healing process. She will probably be in the

skilled nursing facility for at least 12 weeks. She isn't able to put any weight on her leg for eight weeks

and then will have to learn to walk with a walker, which will be hard until her arm heals.

But she couldn't even raise her arm before surgery and now she can lift it and even touch her nose.

 We had a scare yesterday, they thought she was developing a blood clot in her leg, they did an

ultrasound and it was negative. So I am so thankful for that!!! And it is so wonderful to see her being

able to raise her arm and touch her nose. Things many of us take for granted.

  Please continue to keep my parents in your prayers, this is hard on both of them.

I haven't had much time for crafting , my little Granddaughter Riley gave me some motivation.

She is turning 8 next week and loves American Girl dolls. She told me that her dolls needed some clothes.

Well she has the "Our Generation" dolls that are sold at target, but to her they are American Girl dolls.

  My husband and I bought her a new doll and I decided to try my hand at making her some doll clothes.

I am used to making primitive crafts,  where if you mess up or have it a little to grungy it looks better.

Making clothes with patterns was a whole new ballgame, the hardest part was figuring out the patterns.

I will share the clothes that I made for Miss Riley, sure hope her and those dolls like them.

  9. The doll clothes are darling. Reminds me of my grandma. She made all our doll clothes and sometimes the dolls. She even made Barbie clothes and crocheted some, too. It is a wonderful thing to share your skills wit the grands!!!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
