Just finished a summer WIP

Its been super hot and humid for the last week. 
Yesterday it finally cooled off so I could get the edge done.
And work in those annoying tails.

Sorry the picture is dark

Happy Dance

No surgery for me!

(well, not now anyway)

However, nothing can be done for the nerve damage.
Which kind of sucks.
Not the answer I wanted,
but having answers is comforting in a way.
He believes my nerve damage is a combination of trauma (car accident) , possibly years of working around farm chemicals, maybe MS.

 not totally ruled out at this point.
(I saw a neurologist about this several years ago and she said I did not have MS at that time)

Que sera sera.

I had an MRI a couple weeks ago...

I saw my doctor at the pain clinic last week.  
(I have to say I love him, he is like a tall, skinny, kinda nerdy Marcus Welby)
(Does anyone remember Marcus Welby? )
Have been having neck issues again, losing feeling in my hands.

Not good news.

Meeting with Dr Davis tomorrow.
He is the neurosurgeon that fused my spine. 
I don't know if he will recommend surgery or not.
But thinking they wouldn't refer me directly to the surgeon if something is up.

I doubt I will sleep a wink tonight.

Mermaid tail!

I made a mermaid tail blanket for my great niece. 
Hope Miss G loves it. 
I didn't have a pattern, just winged it.
Love how it turned out.
Her mom requested it as a birthday gift,
 but she is so excited, she said she might have to give it early!

I made this little  pillow for my niece for Christmas.
(i took the pic before I stitched the bottom closed.)

I love how it turned out. 
I should sew more now that I am unemployed retired.

My latest finish

A pink, gray, and white afghan for my soon-to-arrive great niece :)  
I used Caron simply soft yarn, 100% acrylic so it will be nice and soft and easy care

April? really?

My last post was in April.
Oh my!
If I was younger I could have made a baby in all that time. 

But I didn't.
I made some baby afghans instead.
I made this custom baby blanket for the granddaughter of a friend. 
Used this pattern  
(love love love Lucy's wonderful blos!)
and some thick washable acrylic yarn, I love how it turned out.
Piper is all warm and cozy now.
