I Hope I Remember How

How to write a blog that is.  It’s been a long time since the last post.  And it sure was difficult trying to convince the computer that I really am myself!  Don’t know about anyone else but I tend to talk to my devices — and my furniture, the self check equipment at the grocery….  The one that makes me craziest is the one that keeps telling me to take my groceries over and over while I’m trying to load them all on to my power chair.  Nag, nag, nag!  If I want to leave them there after paying for them I sure don’t need a nagging machine to keep telling me to take them all with me.

I’ve had a long discussion with my sewing machine the past weeks.  I’m certain the eye of the needle is getting smaller while the rope they have turned the thread into is getting larger by the minute.  Seriously, it hasn’t been all that long since I was practically tossing the thread thru the tiniest needles made.  Now it takes me about 6 hours to thread a needle, most of that time just trying to identify where the eye is.  I realize my eyes are a day or two older but chee!  I’m now using a magnifying lamp with powerful LED bulbs and still trying to find that eye.  If I don’t feel any older then why are things not working the right way any more?

So, I’ve been playing with dolls lately.  Mostly making wardrobes for them, but of course I have to see if they fit now, don’t I?  I’m telling myself the dolls will go to some little girls next Christmas but that niggling little voice inside is saying “oh yeah?  Get real!”  Fifth childhood at least going on here.  I’ll put some photos on here –provided I can find them, of the babies, um, the dolls with their clothes, and maybe there will be some quilts you haven’t already seen.  Right now though, I’m just trying to breathe!  Have to get busy on inventing that sand blaster for sinuses.  How is it a silly hole in your head cause so much misery?  A.

  1. Nice to see you in here again, Angie 😀
    You have been very creative with all that clothe for the dolls and you are very talented for sewing such clothe.
    I hope, that you are feeling better again.
    In my sewing machine I have a helper for the tread, so I can click a button and the tread find the hole itself.
    Take good care of yourself, dear friend.

    1. My sewing machine has a threader but I can’t even get that to work for me! I love the computerized sewing though, just pushing a button and the machine goes wild on it’s own. I have to guide the fabric and have never been able to do anything in a straight line, but thanks to my trusty seam ripper the job eventually gets finished. And it’s fun! That’s the main thing. ❤

      1. I’ve only managed to get mine to work one time after trying it for 2 or 3 hours. Most of the problem is that I have no feeling in my fingers and am blind in my right eye. Makes things more interesting that way I guess.

      2. Love your humor, Angie 😀
        I would find that very challenging, I think.
        While I got all the strong medications, my eyesight also got worse and I needed new glasses, otherwise I couldn’t create jewelry any longer, as this demands good eyes too.

      3. It’s an adjustment, Irene, but it seems like each time I lose one thing I gain a couple more. The MS is blocking the optic nerve so the vision comes back at times. I’ve also found that cleaning my glasses helps also! After I invent the sand blaster for sinuses I’ll work on window wipers for glasses. That would make it easier in the rain also. 😍

  2. I kinda get the idea you just never played with dolls. Having a few changes of clothes is very important and the manufacturer seldom provides that. I like having a photo of things I’ve made for future reference and to clog up my phone space. Everything I make is given away and this way I keep the memory while someone else gets to use or abuse it.
