Pray for our neighbors and be careful of slight signs of colds

This has been an awful day. With all that's going on in the world and sickness here at home. My heart goes out to those in the south can't even imagine what they are feeling. I have a very special friend that lives where it all took place. I am so thankful I got to talk to her and her husband and everything was ok with them.Their electric is out because of trees falling on the power lines hopefully it will be on soon. I do worry about her she has breathing problems I know this has to be hard on her. They all need our prayers and anything else we can do for them.
   Good Friday we had our son in the ER he had 2 ear infections and bronchitis. He had just a slight cough  until the last day then it hit all at once. All week I was getting up about 3:30 am so clogged up in the chest I could hardly breathe.Then it would be ok until the next morning, but by Sunday (Easter) morning I was gasping for air my husband said you're going to the hospital. I didn't have a fever test didn't show any pneumonia, but they kept me for more test thinking maybe my heart. They did all kind of test and said a heart specialist would be in later that night. It was awful I just wanted to go home like a big baby I cried to go HOME  I don't like hospital or doctors. Easter is one of my favorite holiest days of the year along with Christmas to be shared with our family get togethers.
  About 9:30 pm the Dr. came in checked me over real good and went over the test. He said my heart was fine, but the new test showed pneumonia and 2 ear infections. He loaded me with prescriptions and instructions and let me go HOME. I am breathing better each day still a little hard talking,but getting better thank the LORD.
  The main thing about all this is be careful especially with the children.If they have even a little cough or complain a little about an earache you better get them checked. My 16 mo old great grand baby went to the hospital also that weekend with 2 ear infections and pink eye. My sons friend at school also has ear infections so something is going around bad. Usually you get a cold or fevers and thing show up, but with this those things aren't showing up first. So please be careful !!!
  I know I am starting to feel better because I am thinking about my dolls a little more, but not enough to do anything yet hopefully soon...
        So please be careful ....God bless and pray for those that our suffering today..........

Adorable mohair critters to share to cute

  I love blog hopping and seeing what everyones doing maybe a little to much lol. I also like to share things I like and think that you might too. Kim over at Prims by Kim  has the cutesy mohair critters. These are just a few of her creations arn't they just adorable wow.She also has an adorable bear called Bosco in her Esty shop he's a real party animal too lol.So if you get a chance stop by I think you'll like them as much as I did when I first saw them.   I can't belive it's been 6 days since I last posted. There just does'nt seem to be enough time in the day to get all the things done I want to do. I made the candy bouquet up then had to redo it. The weather changed so much that I figued it was'nt a good idea to use the chocolate candy for as hot as it's been. I took some pics today, but have to resize them before I put them on here. Nothing happens I'll have them tomorrow and my bunny too....Have a great evening ...
  Six days since I've been here unbelieveable
Gee can't believe how fast time is going by any more.Seems like I just posted and here it's been 6 days.

  Things are coming along good and soon will be done the bunny and doll. It seems like I have been on these forever why I don't know. I've never had so much trouble getting things done as I have lately. Sometimes I felt like I was in reverse lol. I've made this the day to get these 2 dolls done. It's rainning out and I have some old western movies on netflix with a big pot of coffee. Now it don't get better then that even hubbys making supper.
                                                                           Have all clothes made except her slip I forgot until I was dressing her.I love the shades of blue it is so pretty.I also redid the pattern a little so the clothes could be removed also the ruffles around the neck.No wonder it takes me so long  I always seem to have to change something, but I think when we make something from patterns we always put a little of ourselves in to our projects.
                                                                                 Have everything gathered up for her candy bouquet I am making her to hold. I wanted to make something a little different to put in her arms.
Hopefully I'll have more pics of the finished dolls tomorrow if all goes the way I plan it, but you know how that goes lol.
   Have to go now and get busy,but will be back tomorrow with more pics.Have a great days blessings !!!

Doll bunny bread bowls and free doggie tut

  Good Morning Everyone,
Well after days of sleet and rain it's suppose to be in the 80s. I am ready for spring and love seeing everything starting to bloom, but I am not ready for hot weather. I would love to just have a nice spring until it's time for summer temps, but that don't look like it's going to happen this year either.
 This year I am really going to try and work thru the summer making my dolls and other critters for the fall and Christmas season. Every year I wait till it's closer to the holidays to get in the mood, but then I get overwhelmed and don't do hardly anything.
  The doll I changed heads is finished I just have to do a little finishing touch to her hat she's looking great.I will be posting pics soon as I finish her up. I already started a bunny doll and love how she's coming along. Today I should be getting her clothes done can't wait to get her dressed.

These are the fabrics I picked for her.Sorry they don't show up as pretty as they really are I took them at night.The pattern I got from Kats Country Prims she has really nice patterns.
This is OT but thought I'd show you some bread bowls I made and they were so easy.The commercials always looked so good then I accidently came across the recipe and thought I'd try them, but wait till you see what they are mad of  anything fast and easy I like lol.
You know the pillsbury rolls in the tube well these are made using the pillsbury french bread in the tube. Just remove it cut into 3 pieces and make them round. Bake for about 23 mins. Slice a thin piece off the top push the inside to the side then fill.Thats it and so easy and tasted great I filled mine with chili.
Only thing to do these you need more then just 1 tube of french bread so you can make more they are small. Mine are on saucers so you can see they are small.I knew they would'nt be enough for my family and they would need a bowl of chili on the side.I could'nt wait to get more at the market I wanted to try them right away. When I handed it to my husband he looked at me really funny and said whats this ? Lol
Ok I need to get sewing can't wait to show you my new creations. Have a great day !!!
I almost for got I wanted to share an adorable sock dog tut I found this morning it is so cute.This is from Create Studios by Sarah.
