My Well is Full

I've been dealing with a little vertigo issues which could make my stitching a bit wonky...But, there is nothing like some family time to pick one's spirits up!  I spent a whole day hanging out with my DIL and the lil' man.  We visited a park which was a couple of blocks away from their home.  Everything is blooming in Portland!  Spring has finally arrived.



This guy is a full steam ahead personality!


I loved seeing this stitchery I made for their wedding hanging in their home...makes me want to start at new Kathy Schmitz project.  I love her embroidery patterns!  


I'll leave you with this thought for the week...
take care of yourself and seize the stitching moments!

  1. Hi Anna, I deal with vertigo constantly. I find if I sleep on my UNAFFECTED side, it helps. It's a nasty problem, but I manage to keep going most of the time!!
    Your little guy is so cute!!!

  4. Beautiful embroidery piece! I'm sure they will love it for years to come! When you do these pieces what stitch do you use? I'm about to start one from buttermilk basin and I don't know if I should use the stem stitch or a running stitch. I too deal with occasional bouts of vertigo. The first time ever it just came out if the blue and I was scared to death! It was horrible! I couldn't move my head even a fraction of an inch without feeling like I was going to throw up and fall down at the same time! Luckily I was able to get some meclizine and it helped tremendously. I have had to resort to it again a few times since then but usually I'm able to ward it off with an essential oil called balance. I put it behind my ear several times a day for a few days and the feeling eases and eventually passes.

  5. Please let me know if you find something that works. John dealt with it for years and tried many therapies, nothing worked. We finally learned his was caused from Afib. Mine is from ear crystals, still looking for a solution. PT works but that requires an appointment after seeing my primary. I hate wasting time on such....
