The Devil Family

Life has been crazy for the last couple of months.... the trip to Israel/Jordan (fantastic), trips to Oregon to care for DFIL and finally for a memorial service (he was 91), a trip to Jackson Hole to see the kids/grandkids and last but not least, a trip to the ER for me after a nasty fall off a ladder. This caused a concussion, torn back muscles, and a bizarre cut at my mouth from the pruning shears. Stitches were required inside and out as the edge of my mouth was sliced open. Eek. This happened on DH's birthday. What a way to celebrate....7 hours in the emergency room.

Now after a month I am almost healed and finally back in the sewing room. The only thing I have sewn in 2 months because of all the craziness is halloween costumes. Here they are.... the devil family.

So sorry to hear about the accident - it sounds like it was really horrific.

Hope you're feeling better now and can get back to the sewing room.

OMG Ann! Ladder + pruning shears = bad combination! Get healed soon and no more pruning shears; sewing scissors are okay, but not on a ladder. I'm looking forward to your next wonderful sewing creation.

Sorry to hear about your accident, but glad you're on the mend. It's good to see you back -- wonderful costumes!

You definitely need a vacation from all that energy sapping activity. Sorry about your FIL, but obviously he had a long life. Bet you didn't realize how appropos your blog name would be. Owww!

Wow! Well, here's wishing you an uneventful next few months, you deserve a break after all that! Hope your healing is going well.

Ouch! Well, as bad as that sounds, it could have been worse.

I just love the pic of your DIL with the two devils on her lap, one smiling angelically and the other screaming. LOL Too cute!
