I have been to my appointment to see the specialist about my MS and I'm pleased to say I don’t have to have these horrible injections to prod myself three times a week.
I will always have this MS and I just have to learn to live with it. My dosage of tablets, bright orange thingies, I call them need to be upped to six to eight tablets a day.
Its not recommended that I work part time, just do what I enjoy doing at the moment which is my quilting and all things arty.
Ive been painting some borders towards Witchy Woo you can see them here I wanted the picture to look folk arty so Ive drawn out some borders onto plain fabric, ironed onto some fusion stuff.
I'm hoping to go to a quilting shop just to get a supply of fusion iron on, the very lightweight which is better for working with the soft colour pencils, its always nice to have a supply in for those applique moments. I did have a lovely roll but it went AWOL during the move from Sheffield to here and crikey no one can find it.
Jim has lifted me some acrylic paints from some boxes to have fun with. These have a bit of glitter in so the effect with be different on the border mixing them with textile paint of course. I'm hoping by tomorrow to get the borders painted and start working on the little cat. Painting the borders even this little bit has taken me all day but its all fun and that’s what its all about.
I took along one of my quilting magazines and noticed that one of the other competitions has the title of EVOLUTION. I asked a million and one questions to Jim was is this,,, so a lot of researching will have to be done on the net.
Hope everyone is having fun quilting.
