A Freak in the bedroom!

Okay, so it is not what you think - though my husband would love it if it were ;-)

No, what I'm talking about is Obstructive Sleep Apnea and sleeping with the aid of a CPAP mask and machine. Five years ago I was diagnosed with severe OSA but instead of going with the recommendation of using a CPAP machine, I opted out because I was vain.
I found myself drowsy in the mornings and pinching myself to stay awake on the morning commute. Now that I have been sleeping with the aid of the machine, I haven't been cutting off my oxygen levels thereby causing sleep deprivation and risking heart attack, stroke and much more!
I may look like a freak but at least I'll live to tell about it.

Here I am on my 2nd week and 3 masks later. My first mask I called 'fighter pilot', the 2nd I called 'pig nose' and this 3rd one I call 'the diver'.

I hope the diver will be the one for me. You can read more on Obstructive Sleep Apnea here.

A new Twist on an old Favourite

I was contacted last week by a man who wanted me to make one of my Deluxe Slim-line wallets with hidden zippered compartments for his wife.

His wife had purchased one of my Metro-Man wallets for him before and loved the wool/leather combination. (incidentally, he loves his wallet too!)
I usually do them with the leather on the outside, for this order, the leather is on the inside - I think I will be making more of this version for sure.

How BOLD can I go?

Well take a look. This is my attempt at putting it all together, to try and tie in all the bold pieces.
Check here where I made the sofa seat covers in a funky fabric I found. After that I realized that I still had to somehow pull in the colours from THE funky chair.
At first I wasn't sure if I succeeded or if I even liked it, but it has grown on me. It has been about 2 weeks and I think It's a keeper.
