WOYWW #412 - Joining the Dots

Gosh what a week!

Made my first flat jellyfish for a premature baby but have yet to do the eyes.

Mum sent me some more yarn so I will be able to do those now.
Mum has loads of yarn left over from her shop so said she could donate to the Octopus for a Preemie charity so I arranged for her to meet up with the South Wales coordinator.

I have just joined a new church and went on their church weekend away last weekend. What a wonderfully uplifting time we all had.

I took my embroidery so I could keep up with my 1 year of stitches too.

I got the Bic Cristal pens on recommendation from one of the girls there as well.

The swan was a late arriving Easter present from my husband.

The money from a badminton club for buying shuttlecocks for them.

Lots of doors seem to be opening for me and as the medication seems to be doing the trick I am able to say "yes" and not worry about being housebound each month!

God is Good

Joel 2:25 "I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten"

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

Hi BJ, how lovely to read that your medication is allowing you the freedom to go where you want! It was that freedom that allowed me to accept the Colostomy as a permanent thing, as the alternative was likely poor bowel control, so constantly needing to know where the closest loo was would have been horribly limiting. So happy for you. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #1 XxXx

Hi BJ, Glad your meds are working, so you can get out and about.

Sounds like your mum will keep you out of mischief with the wool supply.

Looking forward to seeing the Swan done.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
