I had a setback in January after suffering from a serious head injury (my own fault)! It took about 10 months for the severe headaches to go, and it has meant that I really have had to pace myself this year. I still cannot concentrate for long periods of time and I find I get frustrated faster than before. I don't know if this is permanent or whether I will continue to improve over time. I am grateful, though, to still be around.
The most important event of the year has been the birth of my first grandchild, Willow. She is 8 months old now, and a beautiful baby girl. Her smiles can warm the coldest day!
My bear making has really suffered this year. The bears are all original and require concentration and strength to make. I hade to cancel Hugglets in February, but was able to attend in September.
I have signed up for Quiltmania's Mystery Quilt for 2015. I believe it will include trapunto and some hand embellishment, so am hoping to learn as much from this one as I learned last year!
