Home from the Hospital

Well it's been a week since my surgery, and I'm feeling a whole lot better than I did last week at this time!

I had a hiatal hernia operation, and what was supposed to be a 3 day stay in the hospital, turned out to be 5 days, and instead of 3 small incisions for the laparoscopy, I have 6. And boy am I black and blue!

Still only on soft mushy food and liquids, so hopefully it will start me on the way to losing weight!

The altered book refered to in a previous post, was picked up by the book sellers, 2 weeks ago and from what Elena said they were very impressed! And they think it can be sold for a 4 figure amount. We will be giving each participant in the project, an amount equivilant to the amount of work that they did. Due to the time constriction at the point of receiving the book, a few of the gals didn't have a chance to do a whole lot, since they had to forward it on to the next person.

That left over 25 double page spreads for me to complete. But it was a good experience and I really want to do a whole one on my own. I have a few ideas about themes, so we'll see come January and the slow selling season, how much inspiration I can drum up.

September was my best selling month since joining Etsy in January '06. Nothing to pop a cork over, but still it beats going a month without any sales at all! And with the 2 shops, I find that the Fabric Annex is supplimenting the NoDuplicates (Eclectic Oddities) shop, so I don't feel completely invisible.

Guess it's time for more liquid diet, so hasta la vista(sp?) baby!
