I Am The Tortoise... Or The Snail...

Or maybe I am the Snail hitch-hiking ON the Tortoise!
It's been a quiet few weeks here at HibiscusHQ... my recovery is slow, which is as predicted... there are still some issues... very little driving... persistent headaches... but on the whole I'm doing ok... mrHS has been a star, as have the kids, & my friends have been so supportive. As it's now just over 3 weeks since my 'vertigo' attack happened, it's expected to perhaps be another 2 weeks or so before I feel back to normal. Hopefully I'll be fortunate to have no lingering issues, as can happen with this condition.

Naturally, stitching & sewing took a back seat for a while... not something I am used to because I stitch or sew (often both) every single day!
I have had to settle for doing stitchery... so a couple more Tis The Season designs have been done... & also some more work on my Red Brolly Polka Dot Girls quilt stitcheries.

These blocks for Tis The Season are called 'Bon Noel Birdies' & 'Peace On Earth'

Polka Dot Girls - 'Summer Heart'

Polka Dot Girls - 'Birdhouse'

Polka Dot Girls - 'A Good Friend'
Getting back to some machine sewing will have to wait a little longer, because I get a bit motion sick from watching the movement of the fabric! What?! Yes, one of my strange recovery quirks... Another issue has been screens... tv has been more about listening than actually watching... computer is something I've only been able to manage in the last few days.
It's certainly been a very challenging few weeks!

There will be a linky for Christmas Through The Year this month, so if you would like to link up your item from July, or have one for this month, tune in here on the 20th...

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has been up to... hoping to pop by some blogs really soon... xx
