It's Over!

These last two weeks almost beat me.  The new medicine was making me a zombie.  Really.
I have read about how people feel on Lithium, I have a better understanding.
Today, after cancelling everything from my schedule for the last 5 days, I awoke a thinking human being.  You are used to feeling and functioning, but to me it was a miracle!  
 I sewed the binding on the tutti frutti #1 quilt.  That was all for the day.
I machine sew the binding as hand sewing is history! 
I would sew one row and then the next and sew them together-that was it for the day.
Really, it was that limited.  I slept away the last week. 
I got one bobbin filled with Masham wool.  It was another way to sooth my creative part of my brain that I knew was in there somewhere! 
Bill brought me a treat-I love these 'snowballs' and eat one and save the other for the next day.  Such a gift of love! 
And today, I sewed the rest of the blocks together and added the borders!  It was wonderful to work for more than 1/2 an hour!
I am smiling again!
