What I have been doing and a new challenge to try

on May 30, 2016

I have finally kicked that nasty bug that had its grip on me for seven long weeks, most of my energy is back though I do notice I tire more easily so I have taken things a little slower while I regain all of me.

For the last few months I have been reading and doing lots of hand embroidery with new projects always in the planning stage, the Hocuspocusville Quilt project is coming along nicely I am currently working on the 7th of twelve blocks.

It’s a slow process because that annoying numbness and tingling in my hands and fingers can be so painful it is easier to put aside the needle rather than suffer through.

I mentioned I had done some reading besides the stack of magazine that had piled up I managed to read a few books too making a trip to the library on days when I felt well enough to drive.

By the last week in April after all the antibiotics and steroids were through I finally stopped coughing and could stay awake throughout the day. In early March my son cut down the overgrown shrubs in the front of my house and a few days later we bought several pots of flowering and leafy plants.

For Mother’s Day weekend we drove to Georgia for the Renaissance Faire and dis a little antique shopping too.

And now I find myself at the end of May feeling stronger everyday, my daily morning walks give me more stamina with each passing day, the weather is warming up  here in Florida and summer is just a few short weeks away.  I am preparing a few summer hand embroidery projects to work on along with the Hocuspocusville embroideries because all those black threads get a bit boring. These patterns have a nice mix of colors so I’ll get them on the light box this week to trace.
