Happy New Year



I'd love to wish all my blogging friends a very Happy New Year!

I haven't completely disappeared, I've just been taking my time to recover.  I experienced what is known as a Functional Stroke (basically the same neurological damage, but no identifiable cause), so I'm having lots of therapy to try and regain proper use of my left side, including lots of physiotherapy and also speech therapy to help with that too.

I'm still only able to use a computer screen for a limited amount at a time, but I'm really hoping to be able to keep up with reading everyone's blog posts!  I figured, New Year would be a good time to start, there is no way I could have caught up with 6 month's worth of posts!  I might not be able to comment on all posts, but I'll try :)

I have been stitching a little too, it's much slower than before, but anything is better than nothing and I even managed a finish!


It's Candy Cane Christmas by Ursula Michael,  stitched on 14 ct DMC Marbled Blue Aida.  

Anyway, that's enough from me for now, I hope to be able to blog much more this year, but it's enough to just become part of a community that I have truly missed.
