I was happy to come home yesterday from the hospital.  I am healing well , but still feeling a little lightheaded and sore.  My neck is quite bruised and swollen, but looks much better than I anticipated  It will take a while for my thyroid hormone replacement to get sorted out too.  Mornings aren't so great , but in  the afternoons I feel better.  Just need to wait a few weeks for the lab results, but the surgeon sounded postive.

I can't wait to start working on bears again. Hopefully soon :)

For those of you that have been wondering, I finally got a call this week with a surgery date after waiting 11 months.  Yikes, that was a long time and a good lesson in patience.   On Monday I will begin my 2 nights, all expenses paid, room service stay at the luxurious hotel known as the "hospital".  In the meantime, I am getting lots of meals made ahead so I don't have to cook for awhile, and my family won't starve.  Yeah, I know they would be fine, it's just the mom in me that thinks I need to plan ahead.   It is such a busy time with school winding up, exams , proms and grad for both my kids.  It looks like the timing will work out so I can at least attend their graduations, and for that I am thankful.  And, they can be here to help me out if needed. 

Unfortunately, the partially sewn bears will have to wait awhile longer to be born.

Prayers are appreciated for a successful surgery, quick recovery and a good lab report .

HERE COMES THE SUN- it really does exist !!!!!

What more is there to say....the sun decided to shine the past couple of days.  And, it was really warm . Yay !  It is such a welcome sight after so many weeks of rain. nice to just sit in the lawn chair and soak up the vitamin D, or putter in the garden. 

 It also gets me inspired , so I went to work yesterday and cut out 3 mink bears.  I'm loooking forward to bringing them to life over the next week or so.  I also feel the urge to make something new- maybe from  mohair and maybe a whole new design.  Who knows.  Time will tell.
