Mrs. Miller

And no I am not referring to my new mother in law. That is me, now and it is weird. I had better hurry up with the doctorate. I had decided many years ago around the age of 10 that I never wanted to be Mrs. Anyone, but Doctor so-and-so. I am running a bit behind because I find myself now with a different last name but the same prefix. Garrett and I married on Dec 13th in Red Rock Canyon outside Vegas. I highly recommend it; it was so easy. However be forewarned, you must tip EVERYONE. As soon as the ceremony was finished the minister came up to us to make sure we understood what his usually "fee" was and that he would be taking that now. I thought "how tacky" but really we are in Vegas. Tacky has a different meaning here. All in all it was great and I could not have envisioned it any better, nor could my bank account.

As soon as I got back I got the flu. I haven't had it in a while and it hit me hard. Since my boss (single mom and friend) will not let me step foot in the office until my fever breaks, I am stuck at home under orders to lay on the couch and drink tea. I am easily bored and can only stand so much holiday cook shows before I get the urge to create something of my own. I would not dream of cooking while sick so I figure sewing is not very active maybe that is allowed. So in my days stuck at home I have made a apron (In Stitches by Amy Butler) and a patchwork bag and matching flower pin. I also made a few more recipe gift bags but they are already wrapped. I hope to get a few more things made before Christmas. I am really looking forward to Monday. I have never given this many, if any, handmade gifts before.
