Welcome back May, it's really lovely to see your here and with the news that your not having so much pain in your shoulder. Pain really drags you down. Would surgery really help?
Anyway what beautiful makes, and the tea sounds lovely, just to sit and relax with a cuppa., take care, hugs Kate x

Sounds like slow progress May, but in the right direction.

Glad you are doing better May. I sure hope everything will resolve without surgery.
Your fabric art is wonderful - so much texture and depth - really beautiful. Looking forward to seeing more. Love that card you recieved!
We are busy packing for a move to another state. What a mess - my craftroom is all torn up - enough to make a grown woman cry!
Thinking of you Sugar and hoping you heal guickly!

I am glad to read that you are feeling a little less sore and that you are managing to drive and work.
This is such a beautiful piece of fabric art with some of my very favourite stamps. I say that she is incredibly lucky to be the recipient of this. You received such lovelies in return.
Take good care.

So glad you are back, May! I was just thinking of you last night! I was thinking that I needed to check and see if you have posted recently and here you are! So sorry about your shoulder - I have one of those and it gives me such grief. Sometimes I can't even function, but I am learning to live with it. Good days and bad....Lovely swaps you girls have exchanged - such creative souls! Wishing you a lovely week, dear May! Hugs xo Karen
