It has been so long since I last posted anything! It has been a roller coaster last few months. My husband, who had been diagnosed with blood clots in both lungs in April was doing very well, and then towards the end of May he started coughing again and was short of breath. They did an Xray to find that 80% of his left lung was surrounded by fluid. So back into the hospital he went for another 5 days while they put a tube in to drain out the fluid. That went very well, and he has had two subsequent Xrays and all is clear! We missed a family reunion over Memorial Day in Florida as he was in the hospital, so we are going next week for a few days to my brother-in-law's beach house. We will be able to see at least one member of the family! Needless to say, I wasn't doing much doll making for a while, but now am going full blast again!! Talk about full blast; the temps here in Mississippi have been in the 90's since April. I love the heat, but it has become even too much for me! Anyhow, I've added a few new pics of my newest creations. I'm trying to get as many done as possible to prepare for the big show and sale in December in Jackson hosted by The Mississippi Craftsmen's Guild, of which I am an exhibiting artist. Doug is helping me create what I hope will be a really spectacular booth display. I'll take some pictures of it and post here. Hope everyone is having a great summer.
