This is my love vest that I made after losing Amanda.  I made this vest when I was 64 years old and I did not color my hair!!!  It is gray now tho!! I had no pattern telling me what to do-- how to decorate the vest I had in mind. I just did what I thought would look nice.
I don't sew any more friends.  I can not see the needle let alone the hole in the needle. Everything is failing  me now fast-- my sight and my mind is failing me.
I want to thank you all for wishing me out of pain. When I hurt myself in 07 and was hurting for months Tom bought a Zapper for me.  That is a little thing that looks like a small flashlight. Only the end zaps you with this little zap of electric that is suppose to inter rupt your pain signal.  It will take my pain away unless I have so much inflammation that it can not take it all away.  That is where I am now.  Now I have to be still and do ice and then heat and ice and heat.  To take the inflammation down.  Being still is so hard for me to do with this BIG DOG!!!!!!   She is a sweetheart tho!!!         
 Thank you so much for your well wishes, I feel your love!!!
Love coming your way,  Fern

  3. Fern...your vest is incredible, especially knowing that it is your own design! I started going grey in my 20's. When people ask me what my "natural" color is, I can honestly say I don't know. I haven't seen it in thirty years (ha). I feel horrible for the pain you are suffering through right now. I pray that you get relief.

    1. I didn't start going gray until 70 and my Mother started going gray in her 30's so I didn't take after her thank God!!

  4. Your vest is absolutely beautiful, Fern, and you are very talented to be able to sew without any patterns! We pray your pain goes away soon.

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  5. Your Vest is just LOVELY. Very well done.
    I hope the inflammation goes away soon.

  6. What a lovely vest! You're so talented in sewing, Miss Fern.

    Hope the inflammation goes away soon and you are not in pain anymore.

    1. Priscilla and Eva I did get zapped last night and I am feeling a little better!!!!!! YAY!!! I did ice and heat all day yesterday but I have to get back to work today so we will see??

  7. Hi Fern, we're sorry to learn that you're still in pain. Maybe by the time you read this, it'll be better.
