Just stopping in for a minute.  I'm still sick as a dog.  Move five feet or talk for a few minutes and I cough my head off for 20 minutes.  I do think I'm getting better though, the congestion is pretty much gone.  Unfortunately coughs seem to like to hang around for a while.  I think I might even be able to get back to my stitching tomorrow, hopefully.

On the 11th, I am taking a 6 week online workshop called Soul Restoration through the Brave Girls Club.  I am so looking forward to it.  There is still time to sign up and I'm sure Melody and Kathy will be more than happy to have you.  The art we will be making is going to be so far out of my comfort range...art journals.  But I'm going to pull up my socks and learn something new.  I can't wait!!!

I still have four bead journal pages to make and then to put them together in a wall display to hang beside Tommy's picture.  I have an idea for a couple of the pages, but a couple are still a mystery.  I am so glad I did the BJP last year.  It really helped me remember times that I'd forgotten.  It has also allowed me to make sure I never forget them again. 

Before the week is over I will have finished pictures of my mom's bible cover that I made her for Christmas.  I also have a couple of other small things I want to get done before I start Soul Restoration.

I'm going leave you with a couple pictures of flowers that we had in the yard of our house in Lafayette.

Til next time.
