Hi there friends, I thought I would stop in for an update on life. I know most of you know that I struggle with fibromyalgia and RA and many other things that fibro plagues the body. It can be simplified into it creates a lot of pain. It won't kill you, but you have to endure it. It is hard to find medicine to manage. I wake up and smile and hope that it will be different everyday like so many others struggling with fibro. I try to go out and live like it isn't painful and there won't be a flare later. I have to make choices everyday about whether to do something based on causing a flare. Even small choices like going to the store or a walk instead of sewing. There are some good days that the pain level subsides. However, since the move, I can go a week without sewing, and not because I don't want to, but because I am in too much pain. The move has truly affected my body. I am to a place where pushing through it is not the answer. Resting is the only way to ease it. So, if my beautiful posts dwindle, I am sorry. I am going to take a hiatus from swaps after these are complete. Which is painful, but I intend to continue the Starbucks swap with help from friends. I love seeing all your beautiful work. It is a highlight of everyday. If you have read this far, I am truly happy, blessed and loved. I am just coming to terms with my limitations. Xo, Yvonne
