We're having a particularly stressful time right now, involving house sales and purchases as well as fairly major family-related problems which are currently being sorted out.
With all this going on, I've felt quite depressed and exhausted a lot of the time, and simply haven't had the enthusiasm to update the blog. Migraines with disturbed vision and daily bouts of acid indigestion have indicated the extent of my worries; thankfully these have been helped recently by a little progress in matters and an encouraging message from afar. We do seem to be over the worst now (hopefully) and I'm sure things will work out fine, but we're still in the process at the moment.
I have been doing a little knitting - the top-down summer top from Rebecca magazine that I had to frog several times has now thankfully made it to around 75% complete. However I've found that when I knit I still run through problems in my head and don't feel relaxed.
Instead I've been beading as it absorbs my attention more, which is what I need at the moment. I've made a few more necklaces and been asked by various relatives to re-thread broken ones - even my dear mom has asked me to make her a pair of earrings, which quite astounded me as she's not really into crafts.
Hopefully soon things round here will return to a state more akin to normality (whatever that is) and I'll be up and running again with lots of pics.
