New Pattern and Road trip

Can you believe it, I finally started sewing again. I have actually felt better this past week. Still having a few stomach issues. But I can eat again. I gained 5 pounds. It has been so long since I got hungry, I had forgotten what hunger pains were. I have been busy trying to get some new patterns finished up. The fall issue of Country Sampler is due. So I am still working on getting that ready to send out Monday. My newest pattern is called Olde Prairie Angel. She is a big doll, about 27" tall. I love prairie dolls. This one is holding an embroidery hoop and heart. She is available on the side bar for purchase, e-pattern or mailed version.

We went on another road trip this week, with Carmen and Samantha. My hubby drove us all the way to Atlanta. We went on a fabric buying trip. Between all three of us, we spent over $500.00. So we should be set for awhile now. We took little Buddy with us, he was so glad he didn't have to stay home this time. He took turns sitting with Samantha and on my lap. Everytime we got something to eat, he got a hamburger or chicken nugget. Talk about spoiled. We left the house at 6:30 that morning, stopped in Valdosta, picked up Carmen then went on the Atlanta. It was 10:30 that night before we got home.
I tried to get a picture of Carmen, but she wouldn't let me take her picture. She slept half of the way there. She Started snoring and woke herself up. It was funny, I heard a little snort, looked at Todd. He started laughing and couldn't resist making a comment. She had her hair cut and highlighted, but you can't see it because of the hand.

I have a few more new patterns almost ready to go. Hoping to get them done in the next day or so. Hope to be able to post a lot more now. I see my cancer doctor on Monday and find out what maintenance program I will be on. So hoping I have a few weeks without a doctor's visit.
