Another week has started

Well its the beginning of another week already..This year is going too quick.. I am trying to get some more dolls made for my next market which is on the 26th of July.. I really look forward to them as there are some wonderful stall holders..I have recently begun a friendship with one of the ladies and we try to catch up for coffee once a week..
I never think you can have too many friends..
One of my internet friends Shagsy recently had a birthday and I made her the lap quilt pictured above, which she loved..
I have just made some chicken soup which smells wonderful..I just hope it tastes as

Lap Band Surgery

Well I finally did it.After 17 years of being overweight and my health going down hill, I have taken out medical insurance so I can get Lap Band Surgery done.. I will have to wait 12 months before I can get it done which gives me time to find out more about it.. My hubby and I went to a Seminar about the operation which had the whole team there which includes Dietitian , Psychologist, Life coach and the surgeon.. I would love to hear from anyone who has had this done or knows of anyone who has had it done.. I am not naive and know that there is a risk to all operations, but If I don't do it now I wont be around to see grandkids, Thats if I ever get any. LOL This is a link to the Lap Band Information if anyone is interested.. I know you might be thinking I am a bloody idiot but until you have walked in my shoes you wont know what it is like.. So be happy for me and wish me luck!!!

Bye for now
Have a Safe Week

UFO's Finished

Hello again...
I have been stuck at home with a cold for 10 days so I have been trying to keep myself busy, So I thought I would try to finish some UFO's off.. I managed to get 3 done .
50 to go!!!!
My friend Sharon had her pattern of Pirate Pete in the Austrailian Homespun Magazine so I just had to make one for myself..
I am going to make another one for my teacher friend Janet as she does a pirate theme each year with the kids and I am sure they would like to take it in turns taking him home for the night.. Albert the little Vampire boy was my first fully painted doll and he was fun to make and am looking forward to doing some more folk art dolls. He was from a pattern by Frowning Francis.
The Vampire on the wooden candle stitch was my first Round Head doll which I was nervous about doing, but found it quite easy. Catch Ya all soon, have a great week
