Finger Lakes Tatting Convention

Well the convention is coming quickly so today I started getting things ready!!
I cut out a Horse and a Snowman to sew for the raffle. I also cut out another Horse and a Giraffe!
I hope to get some of the sewing done tonight!

I have also been working on Ideas to teach in Canada in September!   I was so happy I was asked to teach this year I do love to come up with new ideas to teach!!!

Also Mom is doing so much better and we are hoping she gets her other hip done soon. She is doing more now then she was doing last July!  And she had her left hip done on Feb 5 I think it is amazing how she has improved so quickly and she still has one bad hip so she still uses a walker most of the time.

What i have been up to

Sorry i haven't been keeping up my blog i will try harder now that my life is getting back to normal. Since September i have been taking care of my Mom she needed both hips replaced she went in to the hospital to get it done and she carted and ended up with 5 blood clots in her lungs so after a week in the hospital she came home for us to take care of her, Dad stopped working to be with her during the day, I still was working full time and taking care of her and doing all the house work after work and on my days of i scheduled all of her appointments. it wasn't fun most days but she has done so much for me i would never tell either of them i couldn't do it. By December she was wheelchair bound she could transfer with the help of two, we (Dad and I) would get her up and i would have some one come over and help during the day when i was working.We finally got her hip done on February 5 she is doing very well and home, She spent 2 weeks in a nursing home (rehab)where i work, It was great to see her improve and get stronger. Now we are waiting for the doctor to do the other hip. But she is doing so much more now then she has done.

OK now on to what i have been up to

This is what i am teaching at Hector this year
