This summer also brought dental surgery with a few complications including missing a tooth in the front of my mouth for a one month period. I got really good at not smiling with my mouth opened and I think that Rob just may have been enjoying the silence as I chatted less while out and about, ;) Then for my 49th birthday I got shingles. It was a good case of shingles though, if there is such a thing. Not painful as you hear of how some suffer through them. So, I basically have been living the life of a 95 year old for the past few months between afternoon physio with seniors, a somewhat toothless smile and my shingles rash! But, enough whining. As the saying goes, "this too shall pass" and it is time for new beginnings! Yay!!
I can feel Fall in the air in my neck of the woods. Nights are getting darker a little quicker and mornings have that slight chill in the air. Colourful annuals have gone past their prime and are fading.
I'm still looking for my scrappy mojo. It is just nowhere to be found. MIA if you will. It has never left me for this long before. :( I have taken steps to recover it. I have enrolled in Christine Middlecamp's Layer by Layer class. ( More details on this soon.) So far I have made this.
I've been making these thick, cozy cowls in a roving yarn for Diane and friends of Diane and Lisa. The gold and teal ones are 100% wool. Yummy!
