Life happens

Thanks to each and every one of you for all the well wishes and good advise. I have an appointment with the endocrinologist Friday and after that I should be on a good dosage and start improving. You have all lifted my spirits much with your kind words!

Things have been a little crazy around here and I dont see it ending any time soon. The movers delivered a huge pile of boxes for me to fill up and I have started on that. The time is running out! Two weeks and then we are on our way. We have ran into a snafu with the apartment we were looking at. If things dont work out soon we will be taking our second choice. In some ways it could be better but I am still hoping for the first. If we have to opt for the second I lose my bathtub...and I love a nice long soak. Also it only has one very small balcony, the first has two large ones. I dont care though. It is big and bright, beautiful light streaming in in the photos. It also has high ceilings so it seems more spacious and gas heat, which is more economical. Truthfully, I will be happy with either, I just want to get there and start getting settled.

I have been working on my paisley belt for several days, sorry I haven't posted any photos before this. I finished the beading and embroidery and Saturday we went to the fabric store and purchased this wonderful thick feltlike interlining. It's nice and heavy and holds its shape well but it is easy to stitch through. I have started the quilting of the piece and also the edging. I think it is coming along nicely.

I also pulled this piece out for some late night stitching. The glow if the bulb made this look quite yellow but I like the feel of the picture. I really enjoyed working on this piece again and realized how close it was to completion. I really should finish it up!

Please forgive me ahead of time if I continue to be somewhat quiet for some time. I will try to post but I keep getting distracted. I have a lot on my mind right now. Fingers crossed that internet will be fast coming in the new place!

Hope you are all having a peaceful and healthy week!
