Getting Lots Done

Its so hot outside in Arizona this time of year. So it doesnt take much incentive to find things that can be done indoors. My cable box broke and their service hours were pretty much the same as my works hours so I didnt have TV all week either. So whats a girl to do??? Its almost been pleasant without a tv. I have got quite abit done. I am posting pictures here of a few new things. The fall will be here before we know it and I plan on doing a few of the fall shows with the local Briarpatch Market Place. I am trying to get alot of jewelry done over the next couple weeks so that I can put it aways and start sewing. I will be doing lots of home dec pillows and other new things.

I hope you are finding lots of creative things to do this summer and staying nice and cool!

Hi Girl-friend,

Your jewelry is beautiful, just like you! Isn't this heat miserable? At least I can still breath.....I remember visiting up state New York in July one year and I felt I was drowning. I couldn't get any air in my lungs. We've got humidity, too, but not that bad. When it gets a little nicer, we should get together for lunch or something. Take care!

Love ya'

Hi Gail Sweetie...
You are so right, it has been hotter than you know what around here.

Oh my gosh I love your jewelry. That blue bracelet with the hummingbird is TDF. I love it. I love the tea pot on the second one. So beautiful. You have an eye for beauty.

I have been locked inside for 3 months, I only wish I had felt like crafting or something. I was just to weak.

Last week was my first week back to work since April. I was tired at the end of each day, but felt good. I went back to the dr. on Friday for more lung tests. He has taken my voice away for the next 2 weeks at work, and at home talk as little as possible. I am very hoarse and raspy. I have been on steroids for months now, they are not taking that away, my results were not good, still to much wheezing and gurgling. I was disappointed slightly until the dr. told me that the voice I have now, may be all that I have for the rest of my life. It may not get better. The coughing has strained my vocal cords much like a singer, and sometimes it doesn't come back. I guess time will tell. I was very sad on Friday. Today I am a little better.

I loved my stop over today. I am sorry I have not been a better blogger. I am slowly getting up and around again.

Stop by soon sweet friend.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

I could live without the tv too if I did not have such an obsession with the news!

Love all the new jewelry that you created, it's gorgeous!

Have a fantastic day.
