It just never ends.....

I am now among the sick pool! Bad sinus infection and have lost my voice. Poor Malek is over the German Measles, but now has fever and another double ear infection! Man it just never ends at our house!!

I have been staying up late sewing alot of new Tag Raggies for the Grapevine shop. "May Days" is the weekend of the 21st so I've got to get my inventory ramped up. Have got alot of new patterns that I'm hoping will be good sellers. I'll try to post some pics tomorrow.

Hope everyone else is staying well!

We temporarily interrupt this program.....

With a case of THE GERMAN MEASLES!! So after about 7 days of 102-104+ fever, a trip to the ER, iv fluids, 2 antibiotic shots, multiple vials of blood, 8 loads of laundry (due to all of the vomiting and diarrhea) and 30+ baths....we have a diagnosis. German Measles. The poor boy is COVERED head to toe in a rash. The fever finally broke on Tuesday about 4pm. By the time he woke up Wednesday, the rash had reared it's ugly head...all over. The picture above was BEFORE the rash broke out, but was obviously feeling the effects of feeling rotten!

Pictures really don't show the true effects. Poor kid!

This week has also been Teacher Appreciation Week at Emma's school. Today's gift was something of the teacher's favorite color. So I whipped these up over the weekend between laundry and baths for each of her teachers. She had alot of fun picking out just the right fabrics for each.

Take care! I think I hear more laundry calling my name....
