I've had a long "holiday" from blogging, I think I needed some time away from it.
Besides, I haven't been sewing much lately, I've had a lot going on in my life.
I'll tell you a little about it...
I have been in a process for a long time, trying to decide if I should do this or not. I finally decided that I would go for it, and I'm happy I did!
Ten days ago I got a gastric bypass.
I have been struggling with my weight since my early teens, and I just got so sick of it.
I also began to fear illnesses related to weight issues, and I don't want to go there.
Besides that, there is also the fact that we lost our son, I have been told over and over that it did not happen because of my weight, but still...
I'm not comfortable with trying for more children when I'm so overweight.
So, here I am! I'm recovering from the operation, eating only soup (blah), and doing fine really.
I have not had much pain after the surgery, and I'm starting to excercise a little now.
I feel great about it, and I don't regret getting this done.
While I'm recovering I'm not sewing much, but I crochet!
Want to se?
I made a big blanket and a cushion for my sofa, loving the colors I used.
Pure wool yarn, so they are warm and cozy.
Tutorial for the cushion can be found at Attic24, wich by the way has lots of beautiful tutorials on her blog. Tutorial for blanket can be found at Dottie Angel.
I'm working on two other blankets now, I ran out of yarn for one of them, so I need to go to my yarn shop tomorrow.
Crochet is so much fun!
