Hives and Horse Pills

(Not his best side, but you can see more of him on the 15th)

Sorry for the blog neglect this week, not only of my own, but for not getting around to visit other's blog to see what everyone is up to. (I was given antibiotics for the sinus infection, and well, let's just say the cure may have been worse than the illness. I'm almost done with the horse pills, and the red hives are almost gone...seriously! and I'm feeling a lot better now.)

This week:

* Boise is hosting the Special Olympics. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to go to any events. Our family signed up to volunteer to be a "meet and greet" host family when the athletes arrived at the airport, but we weren't able to do it with sicknesses and all. (not sure they would have appreciated getting sick before they competed in their events!) But it looks like so much fun for everyone who was able to go:

* The nice girls over at Today's Primitive Home featured one of my silhouettes on their website. I didn't realize how much the Meadowcrofts resembled one another until they wrote about it! Their site is so much fun to read, and they share some really great primitive and folk art finds and the artists who make them.

* I also managed to finish a few things for The Primitive Gathering's update on the 15th. The site has been on a mini vacation for the last two months, and I didn't want to miss the first update of the year just because a sinus infection!

In my craft closet, aka: the closet you open very carefully and then stand back in case something falls on your feet! Do you have one of those?
This time some pretty white/cream wool fell out, (thank goodness it was soft!), and I thought I'd try a little needle felting on muslin to make something for spring. Here are a few peeks at my offerings that will be updated on the 15th (well, late the night before).

I also painted something furry with long ears and accented it with a painted lace border.

So sorry to hear about your Hives. J has those if he is injected with IVP dye. He has that little note on his medic alert chain.
Hope you are feeling better!

Happy weekend and Happy Valentines Day!

Glad to hear you're feeling a bit better! I had a bad sinus infection last month and only started feeling been when I had some antibiotics. Sorry they gave you hives!

He looks cute and so fluffy from behind! Congrats on the Todays Primitive Home features! Love your presidential silhouettes - you've been so busy!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi Suzanne :) Sorry about the hives, but I LOVE your sheep! :)


P.S. Can you tell me...did you paint the girl in the Daisies outside of Country Manor too? Or just the door?
