Saturday's Song & Health update. Slow Stitching. Stash Report.

Saturday's Song & Health Update
Perhaps a few of you have noticed my absence from "Bloglandia" this week.  Since the last week of August, I have been in a fibromyalgia flare up - experiencing unusual pain, fatigue and, now, burning, neuropathy-like pain, in my feet, especially in my left foot.    It's been almost a year since these ailments have reared their ugly head.  Praise God, I have been able to work thus supporting my sweet Student Teachers.
I may be in pain, have to rest more than I would like, and be unable to do all I would like but I am victorious!
This is my song today, my way of sticking my tongue out at the defeated one. God is bigger than the boogie man!

You may not see as many posts for a little while, but I can still read my Bible, pray, craft a bit and I made it to church this morning!  I'm also posting my daily devotional Scriptures on Instagram. I know you'll be patient and understanding during this time of sporadic posts because...well....that's just how we roll!

Slow Stitching
Today I did a bit of crocheting on this little guy.  He's my September 1 Xmas Item A Month.  There's not much to show yet, but there will be soon!  
Mostly, I'm resting and writing blog posts.  :)
Stash Report
I added 6 yards to my fabric stash, sewed a couple of blocks and discovered a new series of patterns.  I'm eager to share all these new sewing studio events!  
I finally settled on a background fabric for this $7.50 quilt!
Many of my projects are long-term BOMs/QALs, so fabric usage isn't really showing right now.  It's ok....I'm having so much fun in my studio.  

I also finished dishcloths (corrected numbers) 24-26/52 for the #yarnhoardersdishclothchallenge!  

Silly me!  I updated my yarn numbers to show the usage!  :)

  1. Romans 5: 3-4 I enjoy reading your blog, friend. Thank you!

  2. When we don't choose to rest, sometimes our bodies choose for us! That's a great song, thanks for sharing it. I'm glad you are getting little bits of things done, and I hope the flare-up flares down and gives you more comfort as you stitch.

  3. Sorry you are not feeling 100%. Hope the flare up, dies down pretty quickly. Hopefully you can keep up your stitching time this week.

  4. I just prayed specifically that the Lord would give you a decrease in your level of pain. I suffer from migraine headaches, so I understand a bit about pain. But, I'm also a believer, so I understand that we can have real joy despite pain. Thank you for sharing your health update.
