This past week has been a busy one for me and my family. But the good kind of busy....we've all been with my Aunt Judy and she is making huge improvements every day!
I made some signs to hang in her room when she was first transported to a wonderful hospital in my city. Mike and my girls did this for me a few years back when I was in the hospital and it made me have hope each day to fight and get better.
Aunt Judy loves them along with the Dr's and nurses. I watch them all enter her room and see them read them all. I want everyone to know this lady is one super duper person that loves the Lord!
As of yesterday (6-6-14) she passed her barium swallowing test and when I visited yesterday evening, she was so eager to tell us that she was eating and to ask for a Pepsi (her favorite drink). She ate applesauce, some type of pork gravy, all of the ice she could ever want and some ginger ale. What a major difference from the day before where she was allowed nothing. I see God moving in leaps and bounds with my Judy! Keep praying...the prayers are working!!!
Now, for me today, I haven't felt so good. I think I've run myself a little ragged. So I thought about what makes me happy and feel better. You all have to know by now that it's sewing! wink wink
So this is what I made....
Nothing big, but just a few ruffles added to a table cloth I had for my end table. It definitely picked my spirits up!
It's my therapy as I like to call it.
Can you say RUFFLES?
And more RUFFLES!
Then that led to something else I love to do....PAINT!
This was given to me with the mirror unattached and the wood was in it's original form (brown). So I pulled out my paint and brush, painted the wood and then attached the mirror with some heavy duty adhesive. The applique was missing from the top so I painted the scrolly design to give it a little something extra.
It is old...just look at how beautiful the etching on the mirror is! Now I just need to figure out where to hang it. I think it turned out beautifully!
But I may rest a bit for now. I hope you all are enjoying your weekend. I know I am so blessed to have peace of mind knowing that my Judy is getting better and better every day....thank you Jesus and to all who've been praying!
