so what does one do while at the hositpal all day????

When I go off to the hospital to sit with mom and kept her company, I take along a basket with stitching to pass the time. I would say I have been able to get a few things done in the last week and a half. I have too many stitcheries half done for years, just never got around to finishing them until now... I don't even remember who's patterns they might be, OOPS!!
I think I will make pillows out of them and try to put them up on Lemon Poppy Seeds in the very near future....
So up first is this pumpkin doll, I need to figure out what color green I used for the last sleeve, otherwise it is almost done.... This is a buttermilk basin pattern, this one I remember. It will make a cute pillow tuck. I might keep this one....
This has been sitting over half done for about 3 years, until today, FINISHED!

These guys are a little blurry... Some of my "BAGS" read my blog and I don't want them to see it just yet.... Now you are asking BAGS???? Every fall 5 great friends and myself go off for 5 days for a perfect girls trip! We shop, antique, laugh, eat, laugh, eat, poke fun, eat, laugh, and maybe embarrass ourselves out in public. It's a good thing we leave the state! If there is ever a year I need my girls & our trip it's now. We are on the count down, 15 days and counting. Lots of laughs and retail therapy, is there anything better.... Well yes, mom is on the mend, keep your fingers crossed, she might even get out tomorrow. Of course I need her back on her feet as much as possible to I am good to go.....
So we call our group, "the bags are loaded" which means we are packed and ready to go! I am ready! Have a great night. OLM

Oh, how lucky you are to have such close friends and a special tradition you all share together.
Sounds like a blast!!

Enjoyed seeing your handy work. It's always nice to have something we can take along at times to work on. Will continue to keep your mom in my prayers. Your girls trip sounds like such fun times and should be therapy for you right now.
