I had the Best Intentions
We had a scare Thursday...Katie called to tell us that Hampton passed out while they were at the Botanical Gardens...they took him to the pediatrician immediately...she checked his blood sugar and it was quite low...he hasn't been eating much the past couple of days...he's getting his 2 year molars plus his canine teeth all at the same time and his mouth hurts...she felt pretty sure that was what it was, but sent them over to the Children's Hospital for an EKG...we're waiting to get the word from that. I've talked to her many times since Thursday and she says he's acting just fine now and back to eating again. Poor Katie...scared her to death...she said he was out cold. She scooped him up and ran with him to the front of the gardens and there's a little cafe there...the seating hostess is a lifegaurd and she took him from Katie, put him on the ground and did something with his arms and he came right around...OMG I can't imagine. The EKG report is supposed to be back today, we haven't heard anything yet, but I really think it his blood sugar was down...no more scares!
Here's the recipe if you'd like it...it came from my friend Debbie Busby...

We worked in Lynda's sewing room...I love her room...
Lynda and her SIL Donna just working away...I was slackin'...taking pictures. Our friend Jeanne was here too...but somehow she stayed out of the pictures.Look at all these cute fall goodies on the top of Lynda's computer cabinet.
Donna made us all these cute tomato pin cushions...they're wool and she filled them with alpaca wool...oh my pins are going to be so happy.Lynda made us all the cutest snowman ornaments...I forgot to download that picture from my camera so I'll post that tomorrow along with a picture of the quilt top that I am going to finish...it's a quilt for our local Hospice's big fund raiser of the year.
See you tomorrow...OK I've committed! I'll be here!
