A little out of it lately but coming back

I'm trying to get back on track after being a little out of it for over a month. I have a few health issues I'm dealing with and have found some great doctors, so that puts me in a hopeful state of mind. I'm very close to being pain-free, but fatigue is something I'm still working on, but hey, I'm 49 years old and I can't expect to feel 18 at this time of my life. Oh well, enough of that, things are looking better and that is what is important.

I have several new crochet patterns in the works, still trying to unpack after our move and may very well go back to work in an office. My husband bought me an iPhone so that will help me run my Etsy shop while away from my computer. I'm still learning but I am getting the hang of it all.

I've moved all my scrapbooking supplies to my daughter-in-law's house and we are able to crop there. She is super organized and has seen to it my supplies are being put to good use. She is such a sweetheart and I'm so thankful she is in our life. She and I get to spend some "mom and daughter" time together and it's very good for me. My other sweet daughter-in-law has been able to come and crop with us and I hope we can do that on a regular bases. I have really been blessed with these 2 young ladies. My sons really know how to pick great wife's.

My craft room is coming along well. I will share photo's when I get to that point. I have a nice L-shaped desk in there so I can work on my designs and I have crates where I will store my yarn and books along the walls. I will have to destash some more but still, I have more supplies then any one person should ever have. Even with removing my scrapbooking supplies and loading up my d-i-l's craft room, I still have a FULL room left to deal with. Atleast this way I will not get sidetracked between two different hobbies.

We have almost all our beading supplies moved into my husband's studio, still I need access to those supplies because I want to work some beadwork into some of my new crochet patterns.

Even though it's hot outside, I'm thinking about Fall and Winter items already. It's busy busy busy and I'm loving it.
