This weekend we had to take my Mother in law to the hospital because she was showing a marked increase in her confusion. We wanted to make sure that there wasn't anything physically wrong with her. They didn't find anything too bad. Her heart rate and pulse was a little low and there is a little fluid around her lungs, so they kept her for observation. They are tweaking her meds for her Alzheimer's and also giving her something to help her sleep. It's so hard to watch someone who was so vital and full of life just become a shell of themselves. They are hoping to release her to go home today.
So have I been playing in the snow? NO WAY! I have been in my craft room sewing and gluing and cutting and having a grand time dreaming of spring and Easter!
Normally I would not buy a porcelain doll but when I saw this one at the Goodwill I thought she was so pretty so I brought her home and gave her an Easter makeover. I sewed her a Springy apron and made her a Easter bonnet that will certainly be seen at the Easter Parade. Dear Husband says it's too big but I like it big!
I pulled up my Pinterest page and made some of the things that I had pinned for Easter like this carrot
I loved this and I will make some more when I get out to the craft store to get some more orange felt. It only took minutes and even though I stuffed mine, I think they would be cute if you left the top open and used them for a goodie bag.
An online friend just got herself a Tammy doll so I made these P.J.'s for her. I love making Tammy clothes.
I have seen several of these online and decided to jump on the bandwagon. This was so much fun! Oh the possibilities! I got about 20 of those rabbit heads at a yard sale last summer.
But this was my favorite thing to make. Her name is Virginia.
She is sporting an adorable floral dress with a hand embroidered apron.
Of course she is one of the Easter Bunnies helpers so she has one of her eggs that she colored with her.
What a sweet face.
I will be sending her off to an internet (or as Tammy says "an imaginary" ) friend tomorrow.
What have you been doing to keep yourself busy during this dreary winter weather?
