I know that one of the symtoms of MS is the limited socialization due to the immense amount of brain power it requires. A morning at church, or a day with friends talking and laughing, a morning at art class are all a big drain because it is so much for action for my brain; all that firing up just uses me up physically.
I don't know why this is and either do the doctors but all MS patients deal with the same impairment. How do I work around this?
I plan off days between the busy days and that usually keeps me going. Unless life spins into full gear and I can't do anything but hang on for dear life.
I say all this to explain my lack of posting.
I am lackluster at best right now. I putter a little, do my housework because that makes me happy, too, and then I rest. Boy Wonder is here and he talks a lot; I love hearing how he looks at life and how he has it all worked out at 3 3/4 yrs old! He is busy all the time in a good way. I am able to keep the house clean-he is not a lot more work-I just have a constant output.
I am out of words.
Each one is like an extraction.
I will share a bit of the miniscule creativity I have to show.
I know you are more understanding of my absences than I am on myself. That's a fact about most of us. We are so giving and forgiving of others but we are too hard on ourselves!
Enough of the blather....here are some pictures!
I had a visit from this doll named Shaanti-she is lives with BasicallyBenita.com
but has been on a world tour with people on the Ravelry group FiberPusherPodcast.
I added a sun hat and beach mat to her collection and sent her on her way!
Sissy had a bit too much fun and I had to intervene!
I have my watercolor homework set up so when I walk by I can add a little bit each day.
We had to draw and then paint a Middle Eastern tea set in class.
I sit in the studio and spin for a few minutes while Will plays with his train set.
When he napped yesterday, I made this little cross-shoulder purse for Ella.
I tried out a new technique for putting it together and I think I have it! It will make working on the full sized ones much easier and faster!
Do you see what I bought? Labels to add to all the projects I make!
I have this laid out by the sewing machine so I can sew on a few corners to add for the next row on the medallion quilt.
Speaking of that quilt, it is on my design wall. I walk by it many times a day.
This morning I notice this:
The top row, which is sewn in place by the way....
The vines should visually go AROUND the corner.
Another project to rip out and re-do.
The close of each day....me stretched out in knitbed with Nyki on my lap.
Is it bedtime yet?
