Yesterday, we actually had snowflakes. It wasn't cold enough for anything to stick, but it was pretty and rare for these parts. Today is cold and clear, and yesterday's flurries seem hard to believe.
I've been working on a few projects. Mostly trying to come to terms with some ideas and experimenting, but working on samples, discarding, trying again. The projects are so varied, and I move from one to another when the block appears and shuts me down. Three different projects pictured here, although I'm using the same scraps for two of them. I forgot to take pictures of a couple of others, but we'll see how things progress in the next few days.I'm experimenting a bit with ruffles, which is both a bit frustrating and fun. May have to invest in a ruffling foot, but will have to see first if I'd really want to use it enough to make it worth while.
Laddie is improving. The Life Care rehab facility is marvelous. I'm so impressed with the quality of care there and wish that were available all of the time. Not to be critical, because I realize that hospitals are overworked and understaffed, but the kind and quality of care at Life Care far, far exceeds what was available at the hospital. The nurses are so involved and seem actually happy. Amazing the difference that can make to us as we struggle with each phase of these difficulties. At first, I was dismayed because the trip out there takes so much longer (from about 25-30 min. to 40-45 min.), but that feeling evaporated once we realized how much progress Laddie made almost immediately. Not that he will ever fully recover the use of his left arm and leg, the AD interferes with the therapy and although the body is willing, the mind doesn't always send the right message... but still...
We will be heading for a long weekend in Savannah on the 24th, and I'm so looking forward to that visit. We'll be staying at a bed & breakfast and will be centrally enough located to be able to walk to most places.
