A little behind . . . .

Hello everyone!

Please join me for an online show of Spring Friends . . .
Tuesday evening ~ April, 4th.
8pm EST

To be held on the "Gallery" page of this blog.
http://thespottedharegallery.blogspot.com
For those of you new to my blog . . .

Yep ~ sums it up!
"The hurrier I go . . . the behind I get"
I've always loved this quote from Alice In Wonderland.
It seems to define much of my life, but especially the last year and a half.

For those of you new to this blog, thank you &  here's the quick run down.  ~ 15 months ago I broke my leg very badly,  (
http://lorianncorelis.blogspot.com/2016/01/making-do_21.html ) so of course much of 2015 was a wash, but I worked as much as I could.  ~ Just as I hit my year anniversary, husband needed to have a shoulder replacement.  (He's doing great!)
During that time my 93 year old mother fell and we had to attend to getting her back up and running.
Mother has been doing wonderfully and is happy to be back home, but we did have another hiccup with a 4 day hospitalization for her last week.
(But again ~ she's home & doing great!)
Needless to say . . . . I'm "BEHINDER" than ever.
I'd hoped for an online show last Wednesday - Nope!
Then I'd hoped for Sunday ~ Nope!
BUT . . .
I WILL be ready for Tuesday evening!!
(Fingers and toes crossed please)

(Oh yes . . .  and the From Our Hands Retreat is coming up in about 3 weeks!)
EEK!

On a good note . . . I saw my leg surgeon on Thursday and 
I'm done ~ released ~ graduated ~ YIPPEE
A few bits to still work on, but as great as he was we are happy to have one less Dr. on the schedule right now!

Stay healthy!

A January Wednesday . . .

Hello . . . 
Tho we've no snow on the ground ~ 
January still makes me dream
of soft winter whites.

Should you like to purchase today's offering, please email:

Willy Winter Heart
A sweet teddy of the softest "Winter White" ANTIQUE mohair.
Newer mohair is beautiful . . . but in my mind and hands, 
nothing can compete with a piece of fabric that has 
the softness of age and rarity to it!
Willy is about 11" long from heels to ears and is stuffed softly 
with steel shot for added weight. 
He wears a brown houndstooth hand dyed woolen scarf and carries
a very sweet pin keep of the same wool with attached stuffed heart!
$265.00
ship $10.00
I'M SOLD ~ THANK YOU!!
