I'm celebrating my new life as a sewist!
As a child I was fascinated watching my Mom and Grandma turn fabric into beautiful handcrafted items. In my early 20's I finally got brave enough to try my hand at it. As much as I loved it, for many years I couldn't sit and sew without it triggering horrible headaches.
Thankfully, in 2009 my wonderful doctor figured out what was causing the headaches. I have an abnormality called a Chiari malformation. All it took was a little brain surgery to solve the problem -- I can sew again (as well as be able to function as a person) and love it.
Any time I finish a project I'm reminded of how fortunate I am; I'm thankful for another chance at life.
