So -- I signed up for the Bead Bead Hoarders Swap ---- I forgot to take pictures of the beads I sent.... way to go Kate! Here are sone shots of the bounty o' beads that I received -- the last picture is poor quality because I was trying not to show what I am working on . Well, I was going to upload them but for some reason Blogger is no longer very user friendly --- I am going to have to figure out how to get them up from the mac files to her grrrrr

Back in the saddle again

It took me a bit to re-surfac here .... but here I am. All shine and maybe not so new. But I'm going to give this a shot again My art is scattered to the winds now -- beading, quilting, embroidery, metal, tatting. And I have never strayed far from photography. But I am going to try harder to document.

For the record, I am afraid. For the record, I am scared. For the records, I am terrier. And I don't know what to do Our life is turned upside down. Today is day 21 -- Van has been in CCU for 21 days. I don't believe the doctors are helping . His surgeon has been on vacation for 2 weeks. The partner has yet to visit the room. I am sick to death of dealing with the nurse practioneer. I am confused, afraid and don'tknow what to do.

I have become interested in mini macrame. And also got sucked in to Pintrest. I tried so hard to "PIN" the link to -- but could not seem to make it work. Those tiny little knots are amazing to me. People tell me that they could not bead -- I wonder if I can knot?? And there is something about them that reminds me of my life.

Catch up

I've neglected my blog. Badly. Perhaps I need to resurrect it in order to maintain some order in my life. Yeah ... THAT'S the ticket ... Ok To do So much going on. Van is in the hospital. 7 hour surgery yesterday. I am not sure what Colleen and I would do without each other. The three of us are family -- we need each other. No doubt about that -- we are critical to the life of all of us. Without either of them my life would be empty . 'Nuff said for now. I am going strong to stay positive.

I'm so bad about posting -- I tried. Must. Try. Harder. Must. Succeed. At any rate, the timed, they are a changing'. Two weekd from today, I will be married. Married. It is not something that the fat chick ever thought would happen. Be that as it may, I love, I am loved, and I have the most wonderful family that you could ask for. We survived the hurricane. And I am blessed for that. A bout with Vertigo has been somewhat tedious but I am determined to overcome that too. All in all, my life is wonderful.
