Well it is a full moon....

I have had a very unusual week.

I lost a major tooth at the root...#13 is how they identify it. (Bloody mess)
I met with an oral surgeon but with my health records he is not going to touch me until he gets the go ahead from my heart doctor. neurologist, my Lupus doctor and my family doctor 's permission.

Plus now I need have a load of blood work done because on Monday I am due to have a brain angio gram procedure to evaluate how my brain and aneurysms are healed. Plus my children have had a week with the flu during the only time off from the hospital schedules. When I was standing upright ...I did go to the studio and continued to dye my larger pieces of fabric. Somehow I had trouble maintaining the color depths ...due to a cooling temperature we experienced in the last couple of weeks. I started all over on Saturday redyeing the too light fabrics and hopefully the over dye process...which is just starting over once more ...will show the improvement I am working for.

BUT THE TRUTH IS I am grateful for being able to pick myself up and start all over again. The Easter Egg hunt went well the and the little ones went wild for the candy hunt. They made some pretty cute Easter creations for their parents and grandparents.

I hope you enjoy the photos and hopefully I will get back to somewhat normal routines and patterns. I am sending you belated Happy Easter Blessings!!! Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
