I am back in the land of the livin.

Whoo hoo! I am still pretty sore but I can move around now and I don't have to have pain medicine. I know you are all wondering what was wrong, so I will tell you that first. Basically this is what they said, all my problems were coming from my bladder which is "extremely irritated" (they gave me a ridiculously long name for this condition but hubby could not remember it LOL!) so they gave me some medicine to calm my bladder and I should be feeling better in a few weeks. In my uterus they found a couple of spots (could be endometriosis) that they burned off. OK! Enough crazy talk. I am ready for some crafting!
I guess I never realized before how much I depend on sewing and creating things to keep my life in balance. By last night I felt like if I didn't make something soon I would just break down and cry. I grabbed some scraps of fabric, a needle and thread, and some rickrack and went to work. Molly had strawberries on the brain so this is what we came up with. It's a little stuffed strawberry applique. I think this would be so cute on a little A-line jumper for summer. I really do like the way it turned out, but I think it still needs a little something to be complete. I can't stop imagining this strawberry on light blue fabric with white polka dots! It just makes me happy!

What would you do with this strawberry? Come on, play along! I'm *thinking* of making this a freebie download.

Anyone who knows me or sees what I'm buying at the grocery store, knows I LOVE STRAWBERRIES!!! I would put it on the outside pocket of a purse I'm currently making.

Your little strawberry is adorable and makes me think I need to make a new pincushion. :)

I agree...it would look adorable on a little girl's dress pocket or the outside of a cute purse. Or even on a special hand towel.....
