It has been a long journey back to health, but I'm slowly getting there. Thank you to all of my patient readers.
Sitting is still a painful thing, but I've been managing to get a little sewing done. I made a set of (ugly) napkins with that sinister chartreuse cotton. No pictures were taken, but the design turned out well.
This little black dress was a labour of love for my best friend. Her mother recently passed away and her daughter wore this dress to the funeral. It was all I could do for her besides cry with her and bring beer.
In other (non-sewing) arenas, I've been focusing on removing toxins from our environment in order to benefit both our health and the ecosystem. I am proud to report that I quit using shampoo and conditioner (google "no poo"), made my first batches of spoon oil and liquid dish soap, and I'm switching my household cleaners from "environmentally friendly and expensive" to "environmentally friendly and super cheap." I'm excited about how easy the cheap formulas work. I may never buy another cleaning product again! I'm extending my knowledge of herbs and home remedies to accumulating a stash of first aid and homeopathic treatments. You gotta start with what you know and go from there, right?
