My health problems have taken me on another journey and hopefully I have now returned. I do not deal well with medications and even over the counter drugs can cause me problems. I had to come off my pain killers,... Continue reading

I would never have thought that it would take me so long to stitch such a simple design. But this RSI injury is very restricting. This is going to be my last piece of hand stitching until after Xmas. (I... Continue reading
