Halloween Works in Progress and Fabric Shopping Therapy...............

I was at Duke Hospital last week for another outpatient surgery and stopped at a fabric store for a little therapy. I found this great textured black fabric and it just screamed CAT to me soooo, here is the start of my "cat" doll. I haven't done any form of a cat doll in years so it will be very interesting to see what develops.
Fall is just around the corner and I am getting things going in the studio for Halloween whimsies! I will be doing a show in Norcross GA. this October ( more details later) I am so sad to report that I will not be doing the Country Living Show in Columbus this year. The massive surgery I had in February and all the follow up procedures and slow recovery has robbed me of my energy and abilities this year. I am getting stronger all the time and the doctors and I are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. I am adjusting to life without a stomach better and better every day. It is such a long journey of recovery to find my "new normal" and lifestyle being stomach-less. I am a slave to eating and I hate it. I have to be nibbling on something every half hour and there is no guarantee it's gonna go down well. I will be getting my feeding tube out in two weeks!!! Very excited about that milestone. Thanks again everyone for all your love, support and encouragement.
Back to sewing!


  1. So glad to see you! Looking forward to seeing how the cat comes out. Keep plugging away at it and getting better each day. I know, it takes time and can be frustrating, but it is worth it. Kit

  2. Love that cat fabric!! Me-ow! Glad you are getting better and that your feeding tube will be coming out soon.

  3. Glad to see you are working and health wise progressing. Love the fabric for the kitty. I look forward to seeing the finish.
