Hey there my prim pals, I hope you all had a great Independence Day. I apologize to you all since I had promised a great giveaway for the 4th, but unfortunately I was just not well enough to get that done, or even blog at all. I am so sorry and am wondering if starting a blog was even a good idea since I HATE letting people down !!!
As some of you know I had West Nile Virus back in '03 and still have ongoing complications. I had a major flare-up that landed me in bed. Usually I am still able to work on rug hooking and other stitchery projects...in fact, that's one reason I started those hobbies since I could manage them from bed. This one was bad though and I had a hard time using my hands. I hate that I have let you guys down and I hate that a stupid mosquito bite 8 years ago is still negatively affecting my life...although I am doing much better than I was then and I am trying hard to keep that in perspective. I am/was a type A personality...I used to get accomplished in a single day what now would take me at least a month. I am trying not to let this bother me and get depressed about it, but it is and I am.
Perhaps this is not the place to unload...this is , after all, a craft blog, not a medical/illness/support blog, but I felt I owed you an explanation. Also, I know lots of you are women of faith and I am asking for your prayers. I am tired of this disease kicking me in the patootie...every time I think I am DONE with it, it sneaks back up and wacks me back down. I have never been a patient person so it isn't suprising that God has chosen to use this illness as a series of teachable moments for me. I want my life to be an example of His love and His mercy and right now all I am is an example of is a whiney, pathetic crab whose letting this illness beat me AGAIN.
I am and will continue to try to get something done to be able to blog about. Again, I beg for prayers and forgiveness. I have sooo many projects that need to be finished and some are evry cool and I really think you all will like them. Perhaps this summer heat is just not the best time for me to blog, so I may take a bit of a break and get a few things lined up.
I am working on that rug hooking tutorial (since that I have been able to do from bed). Its all organized and I have a few of the lessons completed and will schedule it to launch soon.
Until then, I will be browsing your blogs and dreaming of the projects I have yet to do. You all are such inspirations to me. I hope I havent offended anyone with the unprofessional nature of this post and do hope to be back in blogland soon full time !!!
Until then, many blessing and grace to you,
