April SFS Report

I haven't gotten much stitching done the past several weeks what with feeling crummy from allergies, working on catching up around the house and more. I did take some finished pieces in for framing over the weekend and while I was there I just could not resist picking up the new My Big Toe design, Our Father.
It's the end of April and time to make my SFS report. I don't count money spent on framing in this since I only have it done once or twice a year. My SFS includes charts, threads and fabrics. I bought the chart, Our Father by MBT and the March Loose Feather chart by BBD for a total of $25! I barely squeezed by this month but it was worth it and I even would have been ok with going over a few dollars this time if it had happened.
I am still working on The Apostle's Creed and am half way down on page 2 so I will nearing the finish line soon. I have kitted up around 6 other designs I have on my priority list and they are waiting in their own project bags.
Several people have emailed me to ask how I am doing since all that stuff began last September. I am happy to report that my Vasculitis is in remission now. I take maintenance meds to help keep it from coming back and there is always plenty of lab work to be done but I am ok with that. One of the best things I have noticed is that after months and months of feeling three times my age and so blah, I am finally beginning to feel like myself again. Not all at once but a little more each day! I still get tired and out of breath very easily but I have noticed that I occasionally I have a sudden burst of energy. It doesn't last long and I do get tired from it but I try to take advantage of them when possible. It's nice to feel like a person again!

Thanks for stopping by!

So great to hear that your health is improving, little by little but in a way that you can feel it again and again.
You were doing great on the SFS challenge.
