(Love you, Man!)
My doctor says that my progesterone is dipping again, even with the shots
I'm getting twice a week. Hopefully it will help some for my body to be
getting a rest from nursing. Rosie has done wonderfully; an explanation
and some hymn-singing was all it took for her to go to sleep. I am so
Rosie needs lots of snuggles this week. She's had some sort
of virus and is sniffly and has a bad cough. (Fever, ears, etc.)
We're letting her use our rocker and footstool for the next several months.
We don't have a great space for them, and she'll need a comfortable place
to recover from surgery. Her cancer has returned after eight years, and
surgery is scheduled for this Friday. Its seems that there is a fairly
simple treatment for it, but it will take the better part of this year to
deal with. The granny pattern is Attic24's again, and the
colors should match Mama's kitchen beautifully. I will have to post pictures
of it in it's new surroundings, maybe they'll be over on her blog when we get
a chance to take some. :)
It has a mind of its own yet but will soften enough in time,
and it has room for my expanding belly. :) It is so fast to
sew...four simple gores and elastic & drawstring waist.
The longest part was sewing the ribbon onto the bottom
by hand. The ribbon is so lovely: gold with maroon and
pink rosebuds. I never can make up my mind whether
I'm trying to be medieval or a hippie. I just love long skirts.
They're so comfortable and comforting to me.
