I've lost my sewing, blogging, crafting, knitting, photo mojo. A few months ago while hosting a sewing weekend by hands swelled up and hurt like the dickens. Within a few days, nearly all my joints started to hurt. I was exhausted beyond anything I'd ever felt. Saw the doc, sent me to another doc...turns out it's Rheumatoid Arthritis. Thankfully, I have a forward thinking Rheumatologist that is willing to treat aggressively which is the best way to prevent permanent joint damage. Unfortunately, it looks like I already have damage in my right hand from just 3 months of inflammation. I start some heavy duty drugs next week to get this in remission. I'm optimistic drug treatment will work.

To keep crafty I've started the 365 project. A photo a day for the whole year. My flickr set HERE

My favorite photo so far... a what's on my desk today

my funniest photo...

Jedi signed his "artwork" on the basement floor...not very swift buddy boy!

A few weeks ago I had several ladies and girls over for some sewing time. Farmgirl and 2 other girls aged 11 to 13 were watching Pride and Prejudice when this was overheard...

"Wow, he's drop dead gorgeous!"

"Yeah, he looks just like Molly."

They weren't speaking of Mr. Darcy...they were talking about the horses! Gotta love girls who obsess over horses and not boys. ;-)
