Second, I am taking Mary Ann Moss's online Journal making class called Remains Of The Day. Dispatch From LA: Remains Of The Day Online Class Info. Having so much fun with it. I like it because fabric and the sewing machine are involved in it, too - not just paper.
So, Saturday it was snowing...
so I dragged out all of my paper, trims, fabric, etc and got to work on my ROD journal.
I was able to do a lot on the pages but then sadly I ran out of the green thread that I was using...
so that had to be put aside until I was able to get back to the store this morning for another spool. I want all of the sewing done in the same green. So, second spool of green thread - check!
These are the fabrics I'm going to use for the cover. They are from the home dec department so they have a nice weight to them. And I'm going to cut up an old denim skirt to use with them.
and lastly, I've decided NOT to have my nervous breakdown. It was planned for any day now, but the tests for my breast cancer scare of last week have all come back A-O-Kay! Lets all do a happy dance about that shall we? They think it's from when I had shingles in that exact same location last year (when Mark was having his second surgery) and that it's just making it's presence known again in the form of pain without the rash (now that Mark is planning his third surgery). I didn't realize that you could get it again, but the doctor said "OOOOH yes. It lies dormant in your system and when you are under stress it acts up." So what you're saying is that this is completely my husbands fault? "lol, absolutely." So there you have it...Mark owes my a gift for causing me stress and undue suffering. :O) I have been completely out of my mind for the past 7 days. Example:
Jason and Molly teasing each other...Jason: You're so ugly Molly. Molly: You're so stupid Jason. Laughing laughing laughing hurling insults back and forth. Me...crying because they should be nice to each other. Really, I was a lunatic last week. :O)
So, between Mark's upcoming fusion surgery and my fear of him dying on the table and then this breast thing and my fear of dying from it and what would happen to my children, etc....hhhhh, big big big relief! So since I wont be having the nervous breakdown, I think I will get back to work on this journal. And it's February 1st and not only have I not started my February Bead Journal block, but I don't even have an idea for the block! I need to get thinking about that today too. Wooo, can I just tell you how friggin happy I am today?! Have a great Monday friends!
