A Long, Dark Winter...
This winter was a difficult time for me as I bounced from one illness to the next. Since early May I have been struggling with chest infections, bronchitis, several bouts of conjunctivitis and gastroenteritis, and sinus and ear infections, plus a most hideous case of food poisoning… With a family of six, there were few days when no one was sick, and caring for sick kids is almost as tiring as being sick yourself. All of that has left me exhausted and feeling low. My beautiful husband, Big L, has been an absolute rock, pulling the cart when I could not, and putting up with my complaints, and my snoring! He is an amazing person with a big heart, and I adore him.
During those long months, it was difficult to work and sometimes even to read and draw, so Gumnut Gear has had a quiet stretch. I am sorry for this. As the weather warms and I finally overcome the latest ear infection, I am looking forward to more sewing, quilts, and blogging!
