Because it took about a week to do this start to finish. But I'm able to sew, a little at a time. A long-time customer requested this back in the fall. We picked out the fabric, and waited till surgery was done...and then waited thru the holidays, to see how I was going to feel. When I'd done moderately well with no sling at two weeks post surgery, and was able to drive at 4 weeks, I figured it was time to give sewing a shot - provided I got the go-ahead with PT. Well, PT was a week or so later in starting that I expected, and when it did, I didn't really feel I needed to ask, but I did. And the answer was, do what you feel you can do.
So. When once upon a time it took me a fraction of the time to make one of these bags that this one took? I can sew. I have to stop when things start to hurt, but I can pick back up when it stops hurting.
Oh, and because of that? You see that ticker up there? Yes. I'm planning on doing The Olde Liberty Fibre Faire
, a one-day show. The local fiber faire we have every spring, but missed last year. I'm cautiously optimistic. My Sweetheart and Sis-in-law have promised their help. I won't be able to tug and pull and lug and tote as I used to do, but with help, we can get a booth up. And see old friends, and hopefully bring Nana Sadie Rose
back to life.
Frankly, I think it's long, long overdue...
