Hey feeling better. I can say I can finally get up out the bed and clean up. Nesa and Nellie helped me out a bit while I was sick. They kept the noise down. They cleaned up there room and settle with cereal and cold pizza's and fast food that my family dropped off. But, now mommie is back to her old self at least trying to be. I can said, I some catch up crocheting Saturday night felt oh so good to get my hands back on my love of yarn and a hook. I finally went down stairs to my sewing room to finish up Nesa's jacket. I know I know this jacket been waiting for a grand finishing for awhile so I can say I finally gave it a little bit more TLC.

Here go Nesa's jacket. Sorry no picture with Nesa wearing it she isn't feeling to good now herself. She's sleeping. I am hoping it's not the flu, she just says her stomach hurts and she has a little bit of a fever so hoping it isn't to bad and hoping if it is the flu that it don't get as bad as her having to go to the hossy. Since Nesa has a liver disease I always have to keep a extra eye on her when she gets sick. :( so right now I am just going to keep my eye out on her and hoping she gets better. She says, she don't want to go to the hossy she hates it there what kid wouldn't. So I just called her doctor and he want me to watch her fever. She hasn't thrown up so that is a good thing. She not to much hungry but, she is taking in apple juice and water so that is good. I just hate having sick kids. Grrrrrrrr :(



I also finally sat down and got cutting out the pattern for my jacket that I have been putting on hold for a very long time.

I only cut out the pattern for the package but, yet to cut out the denim that I will use for my jacket.


Here is a close up on the pattern I will be using. I want to do that blue jacket that you see to the lower left side.


Oh and for those that remember about me and my sister challenge it's still on. Now my sister is sick with the flu so will wait until I know she is feeling a little bit better then we can get that on a roll.

But, until then I will do some of my other projects I got up my sleeves.

I started crocheting this shirt for Nellie Saturday night and finished it this morning. I was going to do a pullover but, then changed my mind. I also was going to do longer sleeves but, then decided not to. I like how it turned out.

Nellie is doing great. She not sick at all mainly running around the house by herself and trying to get Nesa up to play with her. So today I had her modeling her new crochet shirt and help me rearrange some things in my sewing room. So she could stay away from Nesa while Nesa slept. I kept Nellie busy with helping me uptangle my yarn and put up fabric. So after that she just had to show off her new shirt and probably watch a movie with me later.:)



Ok I think that is the latest there. Just want everyone to know I am doing good. Flu is GONE thank goodness.

That shirt is so cute! I love the stripes and the neckline looks really good. Purple is a nice color for your daughter, too.
The jacket is cute too. I like the sheen the fabric has to it.
Glad to hear you are feeling better and I hope your daughter feels better soon!

Glad to hear you're feeling better! Being sick is the pits. I love the jacket and the shirt is cute on your daughter! Hope Nesa is feeling well soon too.

Laura said...

That's a great sweater and jacket! That's amazing that you crocheted that whole thing in less than a day! I'm glad you're feeling better and I hope your daughter feels better soon too and doesn't get worse. I've been in the hospital a few times, and hated it too - I know how she feels.

Sheila said...

Yeah... you're feeling better. You did a fabulous job on the jacket. The sweater looks cute on Nellie and agree that purple looks good on her. Looking forward to your jacket.

Katrina said...

I've been busy (hint, hint) so I hadn't read that you were sick. Glad to hear you're feeling better. It's no fun... especially when you have to try and take care of your little ones. I like the jacket. What's on the back? Looks like a white strip of fabric? I'm anxious to make a jacket for my daughter. It's on my long, long, long 'To Make List'. Hope to have my swap mailed to you by the middle of this week.

Glad to hear you're feeling better! I pray your lil' Nesa gets better soon and it doesn't get serious. You must be nervous about that right now.
