No surgery required

No surgery and No cast for Matthew. He did break, fracture and smash (dent) his fibula at the growth plate, but is only on a boot. He is to keep off it and keep it up (which is proving to be hard).

I am on vacation (if you want to call it that). Three weeks off of work hopefully to clean my house, get rid of junk and sew.


Take Care,

These past few weeks have been crazy. My daughter got hit in the mouth with an empty water bottle and it broke her tooth. We were so lucky the dentist was able to glue it back on the same day. We don't know how long that will last or when it will fall off again.

Today my youngest broke his ankle while roller blading with his 5th grade class. End of the year field trip. He is on a fiberglass air cast and crutches till Monday that he gets a hard cast on.

There has also been other family member who have been hurt or ill. Not a good year so far.

I have done some sewing, mostly shorts. Work is also nuts, but the end is near. Six more days. Then 3 weeks off till I start the summer session.

Dreaming of my own separate sewing room with lots of natural lighting, a sewing machine that is not moody (that works), a large cutting table and yards (not scraps) and yards of cheerful, colorful fabric.

Back soon.

Take care,
