We've had some nights get down to 24F and I still had 2 hummingbirds coming to my feeder every day.  I haven't seen them for the past week, so I'm assuming they have finally migrated to a warmer climate. 

This photo was taken in early October and the Supertunias still look amazing.  I also have a large pot of Supertunias in the back yard that haven't been affected by the frosts and freezes we've had.  I'm really enjoying these remaining flowers since all the yard work and fall clean up has been done -- until the next big wind storm blows more corn husks and leaves in.

The migraine has been much worse these past several weeks.  I can't cross stitch for more than 5-10 minutes a day and only if I can manage stitching without bright light.  Even indirect sunlight is too much light.  Even with a raging migraine, my need to be creative continues.  I've found that I don't need much light to crochet and can crochet a bit in the evenings. 

I've been able to finish a comfort blanket for a friend.

I had left over yarn from the gift I made for the 3 year old girl, so I made a baby blanket to be donated to a local charity.

Not a great photo of the triplets, but in my defense, it's pretty difficult to get all three of them together, lol.
These boys are so active and trying to crawl.  Seven months old now and doing so well.  My niece and her husband are moved into their new house and still settling in.  My sister is loving having them only a few minutes away now.

Thank you, again, for your thoughts and prayers for us.  DD#1 continues to see the specialists and is having some better days.  DD#2 has been deployed for 27 weeks already and says she's doing well.

Until next time...


  1. Oh, Pam, I'm so sorry the migraine continues. Having never had one, I can't imagine how awful they must be. I'm glad you are able to crochet a bit, though--the blankets are lovely! And those little boys just bring me a smile--pure sweetness :) Hope you get some relief--and soon!

  2. The triplets are so cute! Your crocheted items look fabulous. Sorry to hear that the migraines are wrecking havoc with your stitching. Continuing to pray for you and your family members!

  3. the boys are sweet, my daughter is expecting number 2 on Dec 18th of this year. I hope it's a girl. Sorry about your migranes. hugs

  4. Oh Pam. I feel for you. I so wish you did not have such reactions to Topomax and other medications. I forgot, did you look into Botox? It did nothing for my migraines, but maybe you? I am praying for you. Your crochet is beautiful.

  5. Seven months old? Holy cow. Can't believe how time is flying. Glad everyone else is doing well, but sorry for your migraines. Yet you still create! Both of them are very pretty. My tunias croaked long ago!

  6. I am so sorry to hear about your headaches. My DD has them so I know how you suffer with them. Those little boys are so cute!!! Your blankets are so pretty!

  7. I know how you are feeling I had Migraines for years I think mine was due to chocolate and cheese . Left them out for 10 years before I could eat them again.Now I am fine.

  8. I was checking the blogs that another blogger I follows, and decided to stop in. I'm so glad I did as I see that you suffer from migraines. I did as well, for years, and am so thankful that I was put on a medication that stopped them from coming. I saw on an ad on television last night that there is now a medication that you get once a month "a shot" that stops migraines. It said to just ask your doctor. I know I didn't have any life when I was getting them. They ran me. Hurt so bad. So I'm hoping that you do look into this. Also want to say that I really did enjoy your blog and seeing all your beautiful work. I'm now your newest follower. Nice to meet you! LindaLee

  9. So sorry to hear about your migraines. I understand the pain is without equal. I hope you are able to get some relief long term. Your triplets are adorable and the blankets so pretty. Take care Pam.

  10. The afghans are so pretty.
    The Triplets are really growing!!
    Prayers for your daughters, and of course you!

  11. I am so sorry you're having such migraine headaches and those babies are just too precious. You're in my thoughts and my prayers for a speedy recovery. Blessings
