Awww ~ aren't they cute??

I have a little finish to share!  I have had the stitching done for a while now, but not the finishing!

I had already shown you one of the completed "Sled Dudes" by Lizzie Kate and now all three are done!  Here's the sweet polar bear and the snowman!  Aren't they cute??

Santa was all finished up a while back.  Now all his friends are with him!  

You all may remember that I'm going to have a finishing day this week with my dear friend and I plan to have tons of stuff to show!

On Friday of last week, I had yet another kidney stone lithotripsy.  (Number 6)  I had my yearly checkup for that, since I'm apparently prone to producing them!  The Dr. said we could go ahead and smash and get rid of these new ones, so they won't give a problem in the future.  Hmmmm, so that's what I did!  I know that everyone does something well.  I always thought it was my music, but I do believe I can beat anyone on producing kidney stones!! I'll see him again in a couple of weeks, and I get the feeling I'll need one more procedure!  I feel fine, though. Just irritated about it!!! 

Thanks for stopping by--come back soon!

Oh Frances, you have me laughing at your "everyone does something well" comment ... lol! I'm sorry you had to deal with the stones again. I hope the procedure is not painful. Your sleds are wonderful! I haven't stitched for months but every time I see these sleds I thinkg "Wow! I've got to start stitching again!"

Your sleds are too darn cute! That little polar bear is just adorable. I love his nose!

I am so sorry about your kidney stones. :-( My dad had them about 10 years of the few times I saw my father cry. We got him to the hospital and they immediately put him on morphine. Boy, my dad sure can be fun when he is under the influence! LOL

I hope the doctor can get them all smashed up!

Soo sorry to hear that you have or had kidney stones. I am thinking that you've heard about home remedies, but have you heard that fresh lemon juice in water helps break them down. Just add a few slices of lemon in your water. We have a Meyer lemon tree and they are sweeter than regular lemons.

Love your darling sled ornaments. Congrats on getting 3 done:)))
Hope you feel better. love Annette

Wow! Your sledges are adorable.... Cute designs on them too..... A lot of stitching too, go you!!
Kidney stones, hmmm I don't know a lot about them. They don't sound like a lot of fun to have, so I hope you get them 'smashed' soon!
Big smiles :)

I hope they can kick those stones to the curb.
How awful to keep getting them.
Those sleds are just too darn cute.

Being a kidney stone producer is something I'm glad I don't have to deal with....I'm sorry you do. My husband had one stone one year and I thought he was going to die. I don't ever want to have to go through what he did. I'm praying for you!
LOVE the L*K sleds, they are darling!

Beth said...

Kidney stones! I'm part of that painful crowd, thought it has not bee several years (knocking on wood!). I don't think there is anything on earth more painful. Love your sleds - very cute finishes.

Carol said...

Your Sled Dudes are so sweet, Frances--really cute finishes!
