Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Saturday, August 10, 2013


At the last piece-a-thon I arranged, I wound up taking home several flannel sheets that were worn thin in the middle, but had lots of good useable fabric around the edges.  So, here is a pink and blue flannel baby quilt for Med Team Intl.  I have had the fabric piled in my sewing room for months.  It's so nice to clear it out!

After Tuesday's stint at the doctor, I have gotten results on one blood test (they drew seven vials) the urine test, and I finally got the results for my chest x-ray.  "No significant abnormalities."  Oh, good.  I don't have Tuberculosis!  Wait a minute.  How about INsignificent abnormalities?  What about those?  Maybe insignificant to them isn't insignificant to me.  I wish I had asked to look at the x-rays while I was there.  I like checking out my skeleton.
 Today is the second Saturday of the month, so the ladies came over for tea.  My theme was, "Green leaves of Summer"  I should have waited till I had the nasturtiums in the napkin ring bud vases.  It was zoo pretty.  I do love those napkin rings!
Oh heck, I just love all kinds of napkin rings.  I get them at estate sales, garage sales, and clearance sales.  And I love fancy napkins, too.  These tea parties give me SUCH a great opportunity to use my treasures!
I need to work on the lighting for these full-table photos.  We had angel food cake with blackberries, lemon bars, raspberry bars, brownies, and for savory, we had chicken sausage meatballs alternated with fresh pineapple chunks on skewers.  Iced Earl Grey tea, Iced peppermint tea, iced cucumber water, hot coffee and hot English breakfast tea.    Good times!  Many people were willing to take brownies home with them.  I got stuck with angel food cake and blackberries. Heh, heh, heh!  And chicken sausage skewers for dinner tonight.

    I had an MRI once - the report stated I had "an essentially normal brain". Just how much wiggle room is there in an "essentially"?
