Golo asked me to post this for her, she received it from Linda2b




Have to say, Linda, its gorgeous, awesome fabric, makes me think of Moroccan tiles and the tinsel bling is perfect Thumbup

OOh, perfect fabric for a sweater. Great job.


Still have about 6-7 people who need their sweaters. I think most of them are in the mail. Thumbup So anytime now they should be showing up. Keep an eye on your mailbox

Linda I just loved your sweater. So cute. I liked your pick of fabric. I heard you weren't feeling up to par. Sure hope your well soon. Love the ornament also and the little catch all. You were busy

This is not the jumper I planned but I also did not plan on losing 10 days of my life to a vicious virus.  And its late.  And not my usual technical expertise.  But it is done and will go in the mail today. As for ugly, its certain I've cracked that code wide open.

You would think at my age I would have learned not to procrastinate.  Instead I've gotten way better at it.  big sigh

Today's the first day I've spent any time feeling normal, with minimal cough and nose blowing. Maybe some time in the sewing room tomorrow...........

My MIL has been sick for 6 weeks, wouldnt go to Dr, then FIL told her she didnt need to, its was just bronchitis, she is very sick from what I can ascertain. Made an appt in a nearby town, he didnt take her to it, made an appt 7hrs away in Savannah, it snowed and they couldnt go, made an appt in nearby town, snowed and didnt go, now she has another one next Fri, hope she makes it, they are in the middle of where that winter storm is heading

Thanks Marian, I thought maybe it was like what Linda2b and Redmadder had but I honestly suspect she is much sicker and I suspect that is why she is avoiding Dr, I bet she is afraid of being hospitalised

Oh Helen, that is nothing to fool around with, she should find and urgent care and go despite the weather. I know how stubborn people can be though. Hope she feels better!

They are wintering in the Mts but they cant really drive in the snow and ice, have virtually no experience as they lived in California and Georgia on the coast so they are stuck, as you can imagine, I was against them wintering in the mt cabin. They have a small open fire and everything else is electric, they cant even cook or heat food if power goes out which is expected, they are unorganised, inexperienced and that is dangerous

Gimpy, that situation does sound dangerous to me. I know that generally docs won't treat viral bronchitis, but my docs say that with my age and compromised immune system I need antibiotics for added support with bronchitis. I'm also using DM cough syrup, lots of rest and hot tea, vitamin C, etc. I suspect her needs might be somewhat similar. It is easy for this to go into pneumonia or to cough enough to damage ribs and muscles, as well as creating scar tissue. We subscribe to the local ambulance service. Several times we have called them to come out and do an evaluation. THEY know how to drive in snow. When Roy had his stroke, he did not want to "bother anyone", but the crew overrode his objections and got him to the hospital.

I'll get the picture of Cassie's sweater posted soon. I couldn't get the flash to work on the camera and was kinda freaking out. Finally realized that it was set on video instead of picture. So now I can get a good shot of it. Thud
