Welcome to another wonderful White Wednesday hosted by Kathleen over at
This week I was going to show you what I am working on for this month's show...BUT a couple of days ago I was, as usual, running around doing twenty things at one, when I realized that I was sick to my stomach from taking my vitamins and not eating. So naturally I sat down and ate a wonderful complete healthy breakfast...NOT..Instead I grabbed a couple of crackers and continued my madness.
All of the sudden I realized I couldn't breathe! A cracker had lodged in my windpipe. I thought, don't panic, Gale, just cough and you'll be fine. After many attempts to cough the cracker piece up, I soon realized I was in trouble!! Thank the Lord my husband, son and nephew were all in the house. My nephew has had Navy Seal training and so he preformed the Heimlich on me. He got me to cough the cracker piece up after three tries ( a very very tiny piece)..BUT in the procedure broke my left rib! The pain is quite unbelievable, but I will take this over the alternative any day. SO, like a "good girl" I am resting and not lifting anything heavy, or house cleaning or vacuuming (sigh, wink wink) Which brings me to White Wednesday...I have had to try and fill my days doing something, as it so hard for me to just sit. I decided I always wanted to start a line of Tatter Elegant Wizard of Was pillows...So...here are a couple that I have made over the past few days. They are a light weight linen in neutral colors with tattered edging. I will put them in the next show to see the response. If they do well I will look into expanding into a line. Oh, by the way, the fabric is all recycled fabric ei. curtains, tablecloths, etc. So we'll see....
Have a great WW and do check out all of the other great sites that are participating in White Wednesday! I appreciate and look forward to your comments!
