I'm Still Here!

This will be a quick post to let you know that I'm still around.

My hand surgery back in July went very well. About six weeks after surgery I was able to begin knitting for short periods of time, which made me very happy! Although the surgery was done with a local anesthetic I think it messed with my Fibro. I have been fighting fatigue more than usual and it is making me crazy. I'm behind on everything!

I'm still trying to have the Open House but it will be moved back to November if I'm able to pull it off. The down time I've experienced with my hand/fatigue issues have really put a kink my plans.

This afternoon is dyeing day and I will take some photos to post in the near future. There are several skeins of worsted wool, fingering wool/silk blend, and fingering wool waiting for me at home. I also bought a couple of skeins of a natural gray Shetland/Mohair blend at the Farmer's Market that I want to practice my overdyeing on.

On a sad note note the bunny I was to be gifted with had to be put down. His owner came to tell me early last week that he began to have trouble with his back legs, then appeared to be in pain so they made the decision to put him down. My hutch was almost done and I was making plans to winterize it for the little guy. So now I will wait until spring then begin looking for another English Angora that needs a good home.

If you feel lead please include my sister Angela (The Country Cellar) on your prayer list. She is fighting pneumonia again and has recently begun treatment for her liver issues. The treatment includes some chemo and is making her pretty sick. Thanks a lot!

Oh, I'm so sorry about your bunny! I was so excited for you to get one. Hopefully in the spring there will be a bunny that needs a loving home! Hugs!

So glad you're feeling much better and know you're up to your eyeballs getting ready for the open house.
Just wanted to say hello and you're in prayers.

You are very fortunate to have sisters who share your interests and encourage you. That alone is a big, BIG deal! As the commercials for NIKE sports shoes used to say..." Just Do It!"...have your open house and learn from it. You will have fun with your sisters too. Looking forward to your on-going experiences with your Open House and reading about the good time with your sisters no matter the monetary outcome.
