Planning is a good thing for me to be doing right now. I’m not sure when, but sometime in July I blacked out, and hit my head on a porcelain sink. As I fell, I also smacked my head against a tile floor, and my neck/shoulders/back were affected pretty badly from what was basically whip-lash. I’ve been in and out of the hospital, and have seen multiple doctors, and really all that I can do now is heal.
I have been suffering from Post Concussion Syndrome for (I believe) 6 weeks now. I’m really not sure because my husband isn’t home right now to give me the numbers. I am experiencing pretty bad short term memory loss (which is why I have no clue when all of this happened), emotional instability, dizziness, headaches (oooooh the headaches! 6 weeks of headaches!), and of course back/neck/shoulder pain from the fall, among other things. It has been really hard, and having to care for my 3 little girls has been incredibly challenging.
So I have been trying to do things that do not take too much concentration (ie: math and focus), but still make me feel like I am accomplishing something. When day after day I feel no improvement (and some days I even regress), it is so important to do something that makes me feel like I am still me.
Do you have any projects that you are working on that you don’t really have to think about?
Other than the more obvious symptoms, I am also struggling with one more thing…
I am buying fabric because I found the perfect quilt/project/etc…
then I forget that I bought it.
and I have no recollection of buying it.
I have no idea what pattern or idea I had…
and now I have these bundles of fabric,
just sitting and waiting to be transformed.
What projects are you working on right now? I would love to make some lap sized or queen sized quilts with these bundles. I was thinking of making this quilt
, and I would love to make these pillows
. But then there is this cutie patootie skirt
, but I also have a thing for string blocks
, as in a “I want to try them” thing. But then, maybe I should just keep it simple and do some flying geese.
Good thing I’m writing this down, otherwise I would forget it all!
Have you seen any quilts lately that you just HAVE to make? Please share them with me – I promise not to forget!
