If I taught a workshop/seminars at ANWG '19 would you be interested?

Improving, Slowly



It has been a very slow process but I am finally seeing some progress.  I have no idea what caused this latest example of physical frailty - experts disagree.  :-/

However, I am getting better.  I am able to sit more normally, which means I have been able to dig into the piles and piles of hemming.  Still lots to do, but at least the mountain range has been reduced somewhat.  

One expert estimated a very long recovery.  I'm hoping it won't take as long as all that, but continue to ignore the looms in the studio, making jig saw puzzles and hemming.  It seems wise to give my body more time to heal before thinking about trying to sit at the loom. 

I have even read a little.  The one I just finished was Crime in Corn Weather by Mary Meigs Atwater.  Yes, our Atwater.  In addition to her work with weaving, she also wrote a mystery.  First published in the 1930's the book is a bit dated in the same manner as Christie and Sayers, but a bit daring for the times, I think.

Well this sounds familiar. I discovered I had spinal stenosis of the cervical spin 2 years ago. What brought it to my attention was not pacing myself and taking a break while warping a loom for shaft switching. Ouch. I pace myself now. Hope you feel better.

Sounds frustrating and painful. Glad you are taking care of yourself and getting some other activities in for pleasure, like reading. {{hugs}}

I agree - glad to hear you're seeing some improvement, and that you're continuing to take care of yourself. After all, you've only got that one body. ;-)

You're smart to allow the time needed for healing. Slow healing seems to be one of the worst aspects of aging. We used to bounce back so quickly and that is not the case anymore. I hope you continue to get better and that the healing is a permanent kind of healing... Hugs.

The human body is still a very mysterious place, even our own... I hope whatever it was now stays away!
