It seems like Christmas is waking up my sewing room. When you want to please others sometimes you just push ahead.
I opened my embroidery machine for the first time in 3 years and it screamed that it hated me- after me bragging on it all that time. We had one fight after another.
But, by then I was hooked so I pulled out some fleece and a cap pattern and went to town. My first endeavor was a disaster so I went looking for a different pattern that I knew I had Somewhere? It has 6 pieces for the top and for some reason went together better than the one that only had 4? Go figure? Then I tackled the two different ways that the two different patterns wanted you to put the band on and I got mad at both of them and just serged the dern thing on and it looked nicer and fit better. I actually did 4 of them for my sons and grandsons and bought those lights that they put on their heads so it leaves their hands free. Then I did this one for a girlfriend? It definitely feels good to create once again.
So many things are happening in my life- but that is life -it never stands still. I am fighting going blind so maybe that is why I decided to create something while I still can blunder along. I have macular degeneration and have been doing the supplements , changed my diet so there is no sugar , no white flours, no white pastas , ect. I exercise daily - I found an acupuncturist to treat me also. We were struggling. Then last week I discovered I have lead poisoning? So, tomorrow I take my water in to be tested and the day after I have a blood test to satisfy the poison control center? Lead is suppose to be very bad for macular degeneration - so once we have some of the clues in -we will see where that leads to. Traditional eye doctors say there is no treatments to save your sight - so I prefer to go the alternative path and had been having some small success until this lead showed up?
It has been a challenging year. I have fought with my garden all Summer long trying to grow organic foods -only to have my plants die or just struggle to survive - not thrive? All of my animals have had bad issues. I have lost several of my chickens - 3 of my Chihuahuas have heart conditions-I took them to the vet today -only to find that my vet was out sick too? One of them is having a hard time breathing because she does not want to take her medicine - so I am heart sick with worry. I hope we can see the doctor for them tomorrow and get help.
