Ohhh - More Fabric
A quick trip to the LQS - just for a look around and I bought a bit of Japanese themed fabric. Some of it is part of a kit to make a table runner. I have something for table runners right now. I just love the dragonflies on this fabric.
I had a little glitch in the Christmas stocking making project. I discovered that the piping I bought is not going to work on the stockings --- so back to the fabric store for more piping. I am going to head out tomorrow to Fabricana - it is a great big store and should have a nice assortment of Christmas trims and decoration. I have never been to the Fabricana before - so it will be a bit of an adventure. If I can't find what I am looking for there I will go to the DressSew in downtown Vancouver. It is a great store for trims and ribbons and whatnots.
A bit of news about my poor husband. He has been complaining about a painful right shoulder for a few years now -- comes and goes, mostly bad at night. Of course in true good wife fashion I have had sympathy - but mostly ignored his complaints. He complains and then goes out on a big ladder with big piece of machinery and cuts the hedge, I figure - no wonder he hurts. Anyway he has been seeing a doctor and has been getting physio for his shoulder. He finally had an MRI this month ( I even forgot that he was going to go for an MRI as it was back in February that it was ordered) Poor guy - went to see the doctor about the results of the MRI on Thursday and it seems that the only fix for him is surgery! I was quite surprised. Seems he has a badly torn rotater cuff - and he's not even a baseball player! So I guess we will see what happens from here. I think there is a fairly long waiting list for most orthopedic surgery. Hopefully he doesn't have to wait too very long.
