Well the past 6 to 8 months have been quite rough for me. My in August my mother went into the hospital (again). She had not been taking care of her self very well and had lost a lot of weight and had gotten to the point where she could not swallow very well. She responded well in the hospital and improved, however they told her that she should not be living alone. I have spent the past half year going back and forth to visit her and helping her settling in to a care facility.
She is still in a shared room, however, she seems to be settling in well. I don't like being so far a way, however, I do have a job that allows for me to go out an visit her fairly often. I have been out every month for at least a week since she moved out of her condo. My next trip will be for Easter.
I am now feeling that I can finally get back into doing some dyeing and maybe even some quilting. I have rearranged my sewing room and long-arm room and next weekend, I hope to get my dye studio (grandiose word for corner of the basement) arranged so I can get some dyeing done.
My fist plan is to do another of the colour families as I learned in Carol Soderlund's Workshop. I will be the second one that I have done since I took her course last year. I have 2 other colour families I would like to do, but of course there are 80 some combinations that can be done with the dyes I use.
I also hope to keep up with this blog some more, I will try and touch base here at least once a week. If you are out there reading please let me know. I have not advertized this blog much, but it would be nice to know if people have found me.
