Here she is. I am very happy with her, and I hope Kristina is too. I love her big orange bird cheeks. Wouldn't you love to be in Australia and see all those colorful birds just flying about?
The dog/house-sitting was fun. My favorite part may have been being able to do all of my laundry in their machines. Going to the laundromat is my least favorite chore. I also was able to discover the amazingness of Trader Joes because they have one near their home. Mmmmmm chocolate peanut butter cups, mmmmmmm orange flavored cranberries, mmmmm pumpkin cereal, and hurray good prices!
I kept my arms straight as much as I could, but alas the super healing I was hoping for did not take place. Nerves are just weird I guess. I still am supposed to see if they heal by rest and ibuprofen and elbow pads for at least another month and if they are not healed by then I am supposed to have a nerve test and then maybe surgery. Now, for all of you sewers and bloggers and drawers---take care of yourselves! Here is my advice to you:
-If you are putting in a long day on the sewing machine, take hourly breaks to walk around and stretch.
-Don't rest your elbows on the table while you sew or type.
-Practice good posture.
Have a great week full of sunshine! See you next time!
