Hi you guys! I have had a busy week here, with lots of doctor's appointments, and was up early each day to get somewhere and be examined. I have been poked, prodded, looked into and looked through, and survived it all! You will be pleased to know that they found nothing at all in my head - apart from what should be there! And no nasties lurking in other places, except for a lot of little spots in my lungs, which are evidently little scars, and will need a long time to clear up. Apparently it is all connected to the erythema nodosom, the recent high fever, and the rheumatic inflammations I have had all year, so there is a pattern in it somewhere. I have to keep taking my medis, although the cortisone has been reduced, so that is something. And I just need lots of rest, so have been lounging around reading and watching old DVDs on TV.
I had a lovely surprise in the post this morning. I won this beautiful sun-catcher from Debbie at Craftymoose Crafts recently. She makes the most wonderful beaded flowers and other things which she sells in her Etsy shop - well worth a visit. My sun-catcher is much more beautiful and very sparkly in real life; it will look gorgeous hanging in front of my window. Sorry my photos are just bad right now, as I am still very shaky.
Thanks a lot, Debbie!
I have made a few Xmas cards. They are not quite what I was hoping to do, and stamping is still impossible because of the shakiness, but I did what I could using some coordinating Xmas papers, die-cut shapes from Donna, and some vintage German images. It was rather frustrating trying to make the little bows, I needed ages to get the ends pulled through - it can only get better! The photos are not very clear, but it's the best I can manage just now.
And this was a beautiful sunrise taken early one morning last week. I had to be up early most mornings, and we had some good weather, so it was good to watch the sunrise while drinking my coffee and 'enjoying' my daily medis!
So, that was all for today. Take care of yourselves, have a great weekend, and thanks for coming by!
