New Stitchery Pattern, update on Carmen and dolls

Good news on Carmen, she should be coming home tomorrow. A big thank you to all her send her cards and well wishes. She really appreciated them. Hopefully she will be posting in a few days. We went up on Monday and spent some time with her, went to house and got her some clothes. Todd played with her cat Miley.
Samantha got another new stitchery pattern done. This is for a prim alphabet. Pattern is available on my side bar for $2.00 for the e-pattern. She has a couple of more in the works. She has been selling quite a few aprons these past few days. I have been working on more dolls, these are from my #313 Seasonal Annie pattern from the You are Special line. I had a couple of orders for the finished dolls, managed to get 4 of them finished. Only have 4 more dolls to get finished for orders. This week, haven't been feeling too great. So haven't gotten as much done as I had planned. We did get Samantha's flowers for her wedding booked. We found someone local who was 1500.00 dollars cheaper than the other quote we got. I can't believe the service charge the more expensive one tacked on, it was over 700.00 for a service charge and delivery charge. They were only about 20 minutes from the wedding location and the one in town that will have to drive an hour is only charging $125.0o for the delivery service and also said they make the cake for $225.00, other cake prices have come in at over $500.00. So it really does pay to support your home town businesses.

Tomorrow I am going with her to pick up her ring, it was a little too big and she needed to get it sized. While we are up there, we are going to go to Joann's, which I can always find some more fabric that I don't need. Then I guess we will get to eat out and then back home for a vet appointment for Buddy.

Thanks again for all your emails and prayers for Carmen. I appreciate everyone who takes time to come read my blog, I am planning on having a giveaway soon, so please check back. Almost time for American Idol.
