I’m baaa-aacckkkkkk

Well, it’s taken almost a month, but at long last I am sitting at the computer ‘penning’ a blog entry. I do have to confess I still haven’t put a needle in fabric. I’m feeling a little…discombobulated, but I do hope to stitch a bit today.

I must be feeling better, because I did do just a little stash enhancement today. I ordered this sampler: Margreet Beemsterboer’s Sampler of Motifs from Marken ~

I ordered my copy from Janice at Traditional Stitches. http://www.traditionalstitches.com/ (see sidebar)

It can be found in the in ‘new offerings’ section, second page. I didn’t order the Amy Mitten fibers as I will probably opt to do this one in DMC or Vikki Clayton silks. According to the notes, this sampler requires 35 skeins of fiber. Yikes!!!! I do have a lot of DMC 310 in my stash. Hmmmmmm.

I really am on the wagon, but this and the new Workbasket: Faith, Hope and Love quaker are ‘must haves’. I know…a gift to myself for making it through this last month. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can rationalize with the best of them. LOL

I do want to say thank you to everyone who left such wonderful, healing wishes both here and on my personal e-mail. Your thoughts and prayers meant so much!. Things went very well…in fact my surgeon told me it was a ‘chip shot’. Didn’t feel so much like a chip shot from my end, but I’ve progressed from feeling like I was run over by a semi to simply feeling like I’ve been kicked in the ribs on occasion. ๐Ÿ™‚ Best of all, I trust this will take care of the recurring problem with the one artery. That was the other thing the surgeon said…’that artery was a disaster’. So I guess this was the right choice.

I am home for several more weeks and am hoping that stitching will be a part of each day. I also want to catch up on my blog reading, because I’ve missed everyone so much.

I hope that this writing finds all of you happy, healthy and with needle in hand.

Blessings,

Julie

A personal update

Just an update after my last post. I will be having heartย  surgery on Friday, June 8th. My posting between now and then will likely be sporadic, but I’m hoping to spend at least some of my recovery stitching like a mad woman. ๐Ÿ™‚

I appreciate you all!

Blessings,

Julie
