I have had a busy and disjointed summer. I found this fun idea on the internet. Using a vintage pillowcase, you turn it into a lil girl's dress. Next time I will narrow the case before sewing, as the dress is way too big for Maddy. However, the making of the dress sparked me out of depression that had increased over this long wet winter, spring and part of the summer. We are packing for a second trip this year to go and kiss my lil monkey granddaughter. Hopefully, my daughter can take advantage to rest. We are borrowing a tent trailer and will soon be on our way. Hope you are all having a great summer. Give your friends and family a big hug. Take care friends !!!

Missing In Action

I have been visiting your blogs, making comments etc. But after our return from Calgary in May, my MIL had a fall at home and broke her hip. Her situation was more serious than my Mom's. MIL had to have a partial hip replacement and my SIL and I have been very busy dealing with hospitals, movement to new hospitals and rehab. My dear MIL was using a walker before the accident and now we think she will be in a wheelchair and will be unable to return to her old home. I have been very busy assisting both parents. DH and I went to our trailer in the forest for Canada July 1 weekend, walked, swam, visited friends and went to a dance and best of all (lol) slept in.

On the creative front had my 8 year old niece and 5 year old neighbour over yeaterday. We swam, decorated cupcakes, made fairy wands and had a party. I love being with children. They keep me honest and caring. Take care friends...Enjoy your summer wherever you live..or winter for my friends down-under...
