New Phone

I went to Verizon, my carrier to see what kind of a deal they would make on an IPhone 6.  I knew I could get one from Best Buy for $99.  Nope, $199 at Verizon and they proceeded to tell me that I would get a much better IPhone from them then Best Buy.  I figured I would take my chance and get it from Best Buy.  I wanted the IPhone because of the app XStitch to inventory my stash.

I've been working on figuring out the new phone.  It isn't too different.
 Katy at the yarn store feeding the alpaca's.  I picked up a new book, Making Shaws with Sock Yarn
We made bracelets last night.  My cousin's wife has breast cancer.  She is going through chemo right now so I thought I would make her a bracelet.  The dangly by the clasp is removable with a lobster claw clasp and says "Believe" and "Hope".  I could have gone pink but, she wears alot of earth tones.  I will have to get it off in the mail, hopefully to brighten her day.  

It has been a really crazy month with Mom.  July was an overnight stay for chest pain.  Her nitro was just old.  Did you know that stuff only lasts a few months?  Then, last weekend it was a flare up of her COPD and she was in the hospital for five days.  I was suppose to go on my college girls weekend but, had to stay home instead.  I wouldn't have had a good time and there was no one else to take care of it.  She is back at the assisted living and doing fine.  She is confused and needs to do a nebulizer treatment four times a day but, doesn't get it right.  Either she does 1 or 2 or since she got home and is a little shook up, did 3 this morning by 10 am.  They are now going to supervise her.  

Can't believe how the summer has flown by.  Katy has been home since August 1 but, getting ready to leave to go back to school.  I'm glad she has been home because she has been an immense help through this.  

Have a great weekend.
Keep on Stitching 


  1. What a beautiful bracelet you created and made for your cousin's wife! Good luck on learning your new phone. Hope your Mom is doing better.

  2. So sorry to read about your trials lately. What a thoughtful gift you made for your cousin's wife - I'm sure she'll be pleased:)

  3. I think you did the right thing with the bracelet. My best friend had breast cancer and she said she got very tired of the pink stuff. Sorry to hear of your troubles. I do know your pain. I have spent hours this summer getting my step-mom's business sent to me. I would have never guessed it would be so difficult to do that!

  4. I hope you enjoy your new phone.
    What a pretty bracelet, and a great idea.
    The Alpaca's are so cute. :)
    Glad your daughter was home to help you.
