Happy Tuesday everyone! It really was a happy day for me and a big relief of nagging worry - see, back in February, my left ear clogged and I thought it was just the end of my cold. Until it started ringing, I heard 'double' and digital-sounding voices. Very weird - but then I needed a root canal and the dentist thought the ear was the likely victim of the infected tooth nerve. When the nerve proved to be a-ok, my cause for concern rose. Off to the ENT I went - to have him prescribe 2 weeks of steroids and then an MRI to "rule out a benign tumor". Don't get me started on that statement - but the bottom line, my MRI was yesterday and it was clean. :-D So even though my left ear isn't hearing perfectly anymore, it is way better than what could have been the result. So I was happy today - and also think the sleepless nights of weekend worry have caught up to me. Hence, the falling-over tired opening line. :-)

We got a request for a blue chenille owl pillow, which will be part of a baby shower gift, so here are the results. More will follow as we get prepared for the few summer fairs we do.

Since I had the reminder from the blog-host Handmade by Heidi, I got all set up for a Friday night of sewing. I got this flamingo bag and two blankets finished.

If you are like me and like to sew, it is hard not to be automatically addicted to fabric. I have way too much of it and I need to get using instead of stock-piling. But, even with all the great fabrics I have, I had a convenient excuse to go buy more.....an order for 6 of the Seaside reversible tote bags. One of my first friends from college and I, even though she transferred after sophomore year, have remained friends through the past 20 years. She saw the bags and would like for one for herself, a few gifts, and to give to her daughters' teachers for end-of-school gifts. But, I only have enough fabric for four bags so off to the store I went. It must be a popular fabric because the store was all-out, so I got a few other combos, one of which is the complement in pinks, greens, and browns....take a look at what I grabbed...I left the cutting board in some pics to show the design scale:
