Loom Class Projects

These are just a sampling of what I've been working on since Sunday! So far I've done one angel, two wreaths, 3 bells and 10 candy canes. I really need to get working on my wreaths and bells though as I still need another 20 wreaths and 7 bells to give away for Christmas. I plan on making the wreaths as napkin holders / pins, so each family member can have one as a special little gift. Our families have grown too large to buy each other presents anymore but I still like to make sure everyone gets something, so this year it is going to be something I knitted, hopefully it will mean a little more than something purchased.

Thanks for having a look!



Well I went to the new doctor today. Seems this mass inside of me is really large, so large that I have to have a c-section to get rid of it. It seems that every day my belly gets larger and the doctor showed me with my hand where the mass was and how large it is. Feels larger than any of my kids were. I am guessing it is about 10 lbs or so as in August when I weighed my self I was around 122 or 123 lbs, today at the doctors office I weighed in at 137 lbs. I'm giving a few pounds as winter weight as i tend to gain around 5 lbs in the winter.

So today I let everyone know that on November 27th I will be in the hospital having surgery and by the sounds of it I will be there for 3 or 4 days, then I will be more or less house bound until the beginning or middle of January.

The good things about the above is once healed I shouldn't have all the pain I've been having for the past 7 or so weeks, and with all that time laying around healing I should be able to do some big time loom knitting. I have several Christmas items I want to get done and it is pretty hard to juggle kids, work and looming so this will give me the time I need to get things done for Christmas and maybe even some stuff for next Christmas too, lol!

I hope anyone reading this will help pray that the operation is as uneventful as possible!

hugs and blessings,
