dala horse, party horse
what a rough start to 2012, but i'm not losing hope. i've had a lot of time to think of things i'd rather be doing than lying in my bed getting better from this nasty infection, not flu like i originally thought. i hope to be stocking the shop soon with items from a sweet little collaboration. and since everyone has been so awesome about my most recent knitting project, i've also been trying to work on translating the downton sweater to pattern. i'm almost there. i'll get it all out there once i'm back on my feet.
but, who knows when that will be. i know i'm always talking about resetting my expectations, and i guess i'm not done. the last month has taught me some hard lessons about weakness and limitations, but i'm so thankful for it. the right words and encouragement have been there when i need to remember what's really important, and i'm grateful to be surrounded by people who make it easy for me to be sick and get better. not like i'd want to do it again, but it's been a surprisingly uplifting time.
