I dipped into the archives for this pic of a frog quilt.
The year is almost done and my workroom is almost usable so the new year will bring pics of current work.
this has been a long break from active sewing for me and i am itching to be doing once more.

sunday june 29

oh boy what a day.
there was a woman giving the message today in church and i could not hear a word she said.
i am not well either and the episode upset me. will be pleased when my new hearing aids arrive for sure.
no sewing at the moment as the moving is taking all of the energy i have. the cancer is taking its toll as far as energy goes.
i start accupuncture treatments the first week in July. Herbal medicine will be adjusted at that point as well.

I did do another hand quilted motif on the double wedding ring yesterday.
I went out to a meeting of women held once a month about twenty minutes drive out of town.
this meeting is held in an old time country hall. Some do craft and some play cards we have a shared lunch and it is a day that i really look forward to each month.
