Long Time no Post!

It has been a long time since I blogged. I haven't been around for many reasons but the primary one being illness. It has just been one thing after another. I have had on going problems with my stomach since I had my gallbladder removed. I have now been diagnosed with bile reflux. To put it simply, they screwed up my operation and didnt leave enough 'pipe' for the drainage of the bile into the intestines and now it pools into my stomach. Add that to pre menopause, depression and anxiety/panic attacks, I have had a shit few months to say the least! Because I have not been stitching as my thumb joint on my left hand  has seized and the Dr has recommended I stitch again to try and make it more supple. I haven't and could stitch due to the arthritus but I have some good cream for it, so from tonight I am going to start stitching again. I am not picking up my last piece, The Bookshelf even though there's hardly any left to do, for now, but I am going to start a Lizzie Kate piece just to get me back into the swing of things.

It's not a brilliant picture as had to use my mobile phone as the batteries have died in my camera. I am actually on the last band. It looks washed out but the fabric is actually a lovely crystal peach.


This is the LK chart I am just about to start stitching on. So, wish me luck that I can get some done without my thumb playing up too much!


  1. So sorry to hear how ill you've been Kelly. I hope things start picking up soon for you. Take it easy x

  2. So sorry to hear things have been so rough. Hope they're able to fix you up soon! Lovely stitching - have fun with the new start!

  3. So sorry to hear things have not been good. It's good to see you posting again. I hope they get you sorted soon.

    The Bookshelf is looking fantastic. Looking forward to seeing your new start.

  4. Kelly! It's sooo nice to have you back! I missed you terribly! I hope that the spring sunshine will do you some good. Glad to see you're stitching again.

  5. Sorry to hear that you haven't been well. Hope everything is better soon.

    Cute new start!

  6. So sorry to hear you've not been well. It must be so frustrating to have had a messed up surgery. Hope you're feeling better soon.
    Bookshelf looks great and good on you to start something new too. If it makes you feel better, just go for it. :)
    Sending you lots of hugs

  7. So happy that you are back with us online. Sorry to hear that the drs caused your bile reflux. I thought dealing with acid reflux was a PITA. I can only try to begin to imagine what you are going through. I'm here if you need to ever talk to someone.

    Your Bookshelf looks fabulous. I look forward to seeing progress on your new LK piece.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate each and every one.
