I've not finished a SINGLE project all week. Mostly because I've had this contraption on my mind:

For those of you lucky enough to have never needed's a CT Scanner (a "CAT" scan.) And I took a trip through that hole this morning. I had to drink a bum-load of this:

(Oh, ok, just 3 bottles. Still. And the friendly fruit images on the bottle are a decoy. It tastes like white glue.)

and then I got one of these as a prize:

(I'm talking to the nurse as she prepares the IV and I'm right in the middle of a sentence and say "I'll wait til you're finished", you know, with my eyes squeezed shut so I can't see the poke. And she says, "Hon, I am finished." Man, she was good.)

It was all over in 90 minutes and other than the mini-freakout I had last night on learning of my copay ($250!!!) I think it went rather well.

Lest you all worry from my ToooMuchInfo posting tonight, I've had a persistent kidney infection. Stubborn bugger. The CT is just a precaution to rule out abscess, and I fully expect it to be normal. (Good vibes sent my way won't hurt either.)

Your regularly scheduled sewing humor should commence asap.


  1. I'm beaming healing vibes your way right this minute. I hope you feel better soon. I'm with you on the IV - I can't watch - there is no faster way to make me faint. Blech!!

  2. First thought, Yikes, that does not look like any of your other sewing projects. Thank god, you got out of that alive. I know how desceptive the labelling can be on pretest bottles. Barf....Trust that this gets to the cause and cure. All my best.

  3. Did you read my comment on GRATITUDE?

  4. Thank you for the well wishes. Having a pain day today, which sucks since its the weekend & I want to be working on projects.

    sis, I did read your comments & I thank you very much! You're very sweet (and I'm still waiting on that big-girl tutu pic! LOL)

    Jemima Bean - I feel your pain on the IV - I've had a few in the last couple of days. Glad you got out of the hospital only having to drink 3 bottles of white glue! I had to leave parts behind :)

    Hope you are okay - g

  6. You will be fine - but sending hugs anyway xx

  7. I hope you are feeling better?!? sorry to hear you had to go through that....I pray your outcome is good. That is a nagging pain I imagine when all you want to do is sew.

    PS the elvis skirt and top is adorable! you have a great imagination


I love hearing from you, and thank you in advance for reading and commenting! &
