Hi Everyone--

I apologize for not posting this week. As you can imagine, it's been crazy! To those of you who had to endure looking at my sewing room yet again, thanks for your patience. If you're a new visitor, I hope you enjoyed it!

We moved Mom from the hospital to a Nursing facility a week ago last Wednesday. She hallucinated non-stop for 4 days. That means 4 days with no sleep. They even had to restrain her at one time. On the day we were to move her, when I arrived at the hospital she was finally asleep. She slept for about 24 hours. Not even aware of her move!

They have been discontinuing the sedating meds slowly over the last week. The hallucinations have not returned and her mind is OK, but it has really taken a toll on her body. She began to get yellow again and I wondered if the problem with the gall stones was returning. She had all the symptoms that were present before we took her to the hospital. However, that has improved. Her lab tests are a wreck, though. Her kidney and liver funtions as well as the proteins are all out of whack and I have to suspect that her body is beginning to shut down. We will probably call in hospice next week.

So on to other news--- In the time I had available this week, I started listing full feedsacks on Ebay. There are some great ones out there if you're interested. A few samples are below. I've started including a coordinating solid repro fat quarter for use with the sack.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter, too! Here's a pic of Cameron with the Easter Bunny!

So that's it for now. I'm off to list some more feedsacks today. Hope everying is having a great weekend!
