Mama Made the Monkey Girl a Sling
Thank you all for your prayers for Ahnalin. She is tired of that enormous cast already and has a long way to go. It is really heavy, and the hospital did not send her home with a sling, so I let her go "shopping" in Mama's fabric stash for her sling.
She picked 4 different pink fabrics, though 1 is barely visible. The outside is a Strawberry Shortcake print, with a hot pink with white polka dot ruffle and strap.
The lining is a pink, green, yellow and white stripe and the padded part of the strap is pale pink Minkee.
I had to draft the sling because the angle of her cast is very different from standard casts. And, as I said before, this cast is SUPER HUGE!
After taking the pics, when Ahnalin was hurting and really not wanting to take pictures, I tried to distract her by checking to see if any of Ahnalin's snapdragons had finally bloomed. Happily, there were two blossoms. So I showed her how to make the "Dragons" talk. She loved it!
Then we checked out our tomato bushes, which are bursting with gorgeous Beefsteak tomatoes! We picked around 2 dozen today! I am sure we will have eaten them by tomorrow. My favorite way to eat them is just cut up raw with a sprinkling of salt.
I did take a photo of India, but she is not feeling well and threatened me if I posted the picture. So, no pic of the lovely India today.
Thank you again for the prayers. I will update when I have more info on Ahnalin's arm.
