Thank you

Thanks to all of you who have been so encouraging during my hopeless moment. I needed it, and I've managed to get back into the denial stage for now! I think we'll just have to do the least expensive plan for Jason & the kids that requires basically paying in $8000 before they'll pay 80% of anything major. That would at least keep us from going bankrupt if there was a major issue and well child/immunizations/etc. are covered 100%. Me...well we'll just have to pray that things change, because it would be an additional $200 a month or so for me in that plan, bringing it back up to the $400 range per month. Something will change, I just believe it.


In other news, I made a birthday banner last week for a friend's little girl. It is my favorite that I've done so far and now I've got the itch to do more! I've got another to do in September, so I think the jersey knit hats I'm making right now will keep me busy until then. Then it will be time to get on the knitting so the kids have homemade hats and mittens to keep them warm (minus the large holes from dropped stitches and accidental yarn overs, etc) this winter!

Amanda, those banners are adorable. I may have to put in an order--one for girls and one for boys. I don't feel like making my own!!! Ha!

I am finishing my last sewing project for another person (in the works since Feb). I have a sweater to make, and then, any creative energy I use will be for my own babes. :) I am looking forward to finding out the babies' genders so I can get crackin' on their quilts while I still have energy and my back isn't killing me.

Love you so much.

I love the alternating dark/light letters. I wish I would have thought of that for mine! Great job oh banner master!
