I've really done it this time...

We are going to have to use our old treetop angel this year after all. I ordered some wings for the new one, and they are lovely, but before they arrived I broke my right arm in a fall down our back steps. Oh, that hurt! No sewing for me for a while, or at least until I learn to use a needle in my left hand.



Tomorrow I will be fitted for a new cast that will once again allow me to bend my elbow. Woo hoo! In the meantime, I am training myself to use my left hand rather well -- I look forward to trying out some new ideas after Christmas. I *think* I will be able to do them left-handed...



Gatsby is now firmly established as a housecat. He stalks and pounces on anything that catches his attention...



...even birds on TV. He has brought so much laughter into our home.

I can see why you want a change from that angel, but it's really not that bad as tree angels go. It's not your style by any means, but it's not bad. Glad you're able to type again, and Gatsby is the perfect name for little kitty.

But what kind of stories would that angel tell if she could talk?

I hope you heal well - that was good news you got from the doc!

Cute kitty - babies are always good for a laugh.

I LIKE your angel! To me, sentiment is everything! LOL! And I'm in LOVE with Gatsby! What a sweetheart! But your poor little arm! I'm so sorry about that! NO time is a good time for a broken ANYTHING, but BAH, HUMBUG! At THIS time of year? Take care of yourself, sweet girl!

p.s. I guess I am a weirdo, but I happen to LOVE your angel.. I like retro and vintage and that is too cute.
