stuff. I've been finding heaps of it lately!

First of all there's CraftGossip(http://craftgossip.com/) which has loads of awesome stuff on it. Heaps of freebies and links to tutorials to stuff I'd have never thought of doing at home! Okay, I mostly just watch the tutorials, or flick through the pretty, pretty pictures, but if I ever wanted to do any of them, now I know where to go!

Thanks to CraftGossip, I have found the blog of an inspiring woman. She's 82, and loves to sew and quilt. You can find a link to her blog in the blogs I follow. Her blog name is Funoldhag. She's got some amazing projects up there. Check her out. Please.

On the topic of crafty stuff, my husband made me a light box! Now I can trace patterns without having to hold them up to a window. Way cool! Thanks, honey!

Hello again. As some of you will know, Gabi has been diagnosed with scoliosis, or curvature of the spine. It's not a painful condition for her, it's just that she's twisted. No, really, her spine is quite curved but everything else is in perfect working order. There's no nerve issues or anything like that and her back is otherwise fine. We don't know why she's growing crookedly, she just is. However, we do have to go and see a scoliosis specialist because of the degree of the curve in her back. So we're off to Melbourne next month to see what treatment she's going to need! Before we can do that, Gabi has to have an MRI, so we can have a complete picture of her back. We've been told this will take about 45 minutes and that she's welcome to take a CD to listen to while the MRI is in progress. So, what suggestions do you have for a Gabi's Scoliosis Scan Session cd? I was thinking Twisted by Brian McFadden...

I know, I'm mean! :P
