It has been a bit over a year since I have posted anything, but I am finally back. I am so ready to daily provide insight on my projects. If you have been directed to my blog through a search engine, please feel free to visit my other pages to learn a bit more about me and my family.
Many have enjoyed my blog on the reorganization of my sewing space into a new and modern sewing studio. My husband surprised me with the project while he was off for some surgeries. My oldest son is a construction contractor, so he provided all the construction services. You may find the post here.
So getting back to my long break due to my husband having three major surgeries in 6 months. He had both knees replaced, his third surgery being his left hip replaced. His surgeon having 35 years of these surgeries and chief of orthopedics, said it was the first time ever in their HMO to do such three in a row. Most patients want to spread them out. But "Nooooo" said my husband, he wanted to get them all done together so he could get them done and get back to work. Most patients need at least 6 months of getting their rehab and strength back. My husband is a mean machine, now my bionic mean machine. He is one tough cookie. We were fortunate in that this HMO group and our coverage offered his rehab right in our home and I never had to pack him up in the car to do his daily routine. We had nurses and physical therapy come several times each week. I am so very very grateful as the job I had of being the caregiver was huge, and they certainly made my job so much easier and fulfilling. He has recovered quite well, and back to work. He has been at the same employer for over 30 years and they are amazed at his recovery and how much better he is able to maneuver the plant. Thanks to everyone involved.
I also took advantage of my caregiver duties, which involved a lot of just comfort and companionship. This gave me lots of time to work on some projects that I could do while being with him. I really enjoyed my projects and improved a few details. I really enjoy designing jewelry pieces and finally through my daughters efforts many are requesting purchases. I have also designed and uploaded a web page on my own. I never thought I could get to this point, so I am very excited. But nothing beats my blog page for just expressing myself and sharing my hobbies. I will be sharing some of my techniques. I just love matching an accessory item to go with a new outfit.
