So, I've been caring for my sister who had back surgery in September. Even now she's not back to 'normal' because it was her 2nd major surgery in 8 months (in the spring last year she had surgery for her cancer).
Then I had surgery 10 days before my birthday last year. I got pretty cocky about my recuperation and it put me in such a state! I can't describe what I went through but I became dehydrated and had to swallow those horrid supplements to get electrolytes in order. I told you I can't describe the whole thing!
The bad thing is I endangered my health. The good thing is I lost 30 pounds.
Since then I pulled out a rug project I last worked on about 10 years ago. Maybe longer. It's petitpoint (40/inch count) and will be about 4 or 5 feet long and 2 feet wide. And I have been happy working it..
Then a friend came by with 5 necklaces needing repair. That was 2 weeks ago. I've restrung 3 of them and have but 2 left. But I've got some ideas that I think are good.
And that has got me pulling out my beads and scanning books for good ideas: maybe new techniques and definitely bright and cheerful colours.
So there you are. I'm back kinda. We'll see how things go.
