Jolly Jack & a new start




I finished "Jolly Jack" today and started a "freebie".. I'm not quite sure how I'm gonna "finish" him yet maybe into a cube? Any ideas?? Love the "freebie" it's from With thy Needle & Thread; thank you Brenda for such a sweet design. :)

It was so nice here today; I think our high was about 80, I didn't turn on the air conditioner til about 4. I can't wait til we don't use that stupid thing and our electric bill can go back to $60 instead of $140.

Me & Kenny both have Monday & Tuesdays off; so he decided to give Rowdy a bath; it was funny as soon as Rowdy heard the bath water running he came and jumped in my lap and when Kenny came to get him; he started to growl at him. LOL He hates his inbetween trips to the groomers baths..

I have to go get blood work in the morning; I had it done last week and the nurse called and said I was very enemic and my cholesterol was high and the Dr. wanted me to go back and have a "hemiglobin" blood test done tomorrow and then I have to go see her on the 15th; I wasn't suppose to go back til October; so I don't think this is going to be a good visit. I knew I was enemic because my periods have been so very heavy for about 3 months now; I know I'm going thru "The Change" and I sure wish it'd hurry and be over with. I'm 50 now and don't need this..lol

Oh...lovely finish!! Can't wait to see your next project, the fabric looks so neat!! I understand where you are coming from in the "blood work" department...I had to have an iron infusion recently, but I felt so much better afterward. Will be keeping you in my thoughts! *Hugs*

Congrats on your finish. It turned out adorable.

Shar, I want you to know that you and I have the same tastes and you got me in trouble. I did a search on Jolly Jack and ordered him, the fabric it calls for, and the Weeks floss! It's all your fault, because I fell in love with this beautiful and cute design (had never heard of this designer before!). I didn't need one more pattern, skein of floss or piece of linen, but what the hey? Sorry about the problems going through the change, but boy do I know what that's all about! Hugz to you on your doctor visit!

Off to see if I can find that darling freebie. I couldn't find it the first time, but try, try, try again.

Love your Jolly Jack! He's in my stash somewhere too! The freebie is darling, going to have to track it down. Hope you are doing better! And hope you go easily thru "the change"!

Love your Jolly Jack! That pattern is adorable! Good luck on your move. Though it will be a lot of work and a pain to move, it'll be great having your own space in that second bedroom. Congrats on the possibilities and best wishes. Jane
