A fresh Start

I spent last week in the hospital. Aside from having babies, I had, up until this point in my life, just been visiting when I stepped foot in a hospital.

I came home last Friday and I am on the mend. I was diagnosed with Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis and it is being chased away with oxygen and medication.

On a lighter note, my #1 daughter, Amber, spent a big chunk of Wednesday organizing my fabrics. I don't have a proper 'fabric hoarders' stash. I take great efforts to only purchase what I will likely use in the near future. I have wovens, knits, velour, doll skin and wool felt.
      
                                           The Shelves
                                         
                                           mostly flannel and knits

                                           mostly wovens

                                           I really like red and white polka dots

                                           Pink fabric makes me quite happy too

                                           100% wool felt

                                           Cotton Velour

                                           Shades of doll skin fabric
                            

So I get very inspired when my fabrics are organized. Amber will be my assistant on Wednesdays for now and, with her help, I will be able to be more on top of thing in my sewing studio.

Oh Berrie,
I am sorry you have this. Have they pin pointed what it is that triggerileeched my bones and g it? I was sick with respirarory issues for a year and that's one of the diagnosis they looked at. All the meds did NOT help. Finally in late April they figured out I had Vocal Cord Disfunction. I got rid of all the meds, did breathing exercises and and finally breathing and doing better. However the prednisone leeched my bones and presently I am on Vit D and Calcium waiting for a bone scan.
Be careful with the meds!

where do you get your wool felt from if you don't mind my asking?

Berrie Wren Hamby said...

I don't mind at all. I get my wool felt from http://www.dewitteengel.nl/457
I buy wholesale for use in my studio. The price after shipping is lower than I can find domestically and the quality is the best.

Thanks!

Oh Berrie that sucks! How are you feeling now?

I spend Saturday in the emergency room because my back went out and I could not move anymore. Flat on my back for a couple of days and my house looks like 3 bombs exploded! I wish I had older children who would organize my sewing room or at least know how to poor milk without it going all over the kitchen floor ; )
I really hope you are feeling better!!!

I'll go with the lighter note as I read your most recent post and and see that things are improving a little. I love and am envious of your shelves of fabric , so neat and so pretty. One day I'll have a studio and then I will have such fun!
