Chemo and projects I am working on.....

Well, it has been a bit rough this week, I had a migraine the day of chemo. They said the nausea drug would give me a migraine and it sure did. I tried taking stuff with me to work on, but an older man next to me, started talking and I couldn't work on my stitchery like I wanted. So I just sat there and chatted with him. They gave me benadryl to start with and that knocked me out for a little bit. I think I was the youngest one there that day. I go back in about 2 weeks and start my 6 hour chemo again. I had to go back the following day after chemo and get a shot to boost my blood cells and she warned me that medicine might cause a migraine also. Thank God, only got a tiny bit of a headache that day. I can feel myself slowing down and not feeling right, just hope I get straightened out by the Weekend for my show. I already warned hubby, he might have to man the cash register. My have to recruit my friend Becky who lives down there to help him, If I get too bad.
I want to thank everyone for their continued prayers and support, it means so much to me. It helps so much to know that alot of other people have gone through this and got through it. and just the encouragement mean the world to me. I have been a little depressed this week, not feeling good. This is the time of year I love, and I hope I can enjoy. It is nice an chilly here tonight, turned on my electric fireplace and feels nice with my warm pjs on.

But I did manage to get somethings down this week, I worked on some wreaths. These are my #408 Snowman Wreath, still have to make the star to go on him tonight.

I also got some of my #407 Santa Wreath finished.

I have put both of these patterns on the side bar if you wish to push for a special price of $5.00 each this week. Just scroll down to underneath the pictures and look for the drop down paypal box.

I made over 40 feedsack pillows this past weekend. So I feel like I got alittle bit accomplished.

These are my favorite, I cheated and didn't make the stars for them. I used some wool, Ipurchased from Crowing about Primitives and it is extra long. Perfect for these guys. Link is on the side if you wish to purchase wool from her.

I have a crate filling over with the feedsack pillows. The Reindeer food one sells great this time of year. I get my logo's from ewenmeprintables.

I found some gingerbread men in the shed and put them in a box with a label and candlelight.

Really prim looking.

I am offering this pattern free this week on the free download link at the bottom of the page.
