I've been wanting to show you my scar, but I had to wait until it wasn't Frankenstein scary.
It's kind of weird, how I feel about it.
I am not the least bit embarrassed.  No sir-ee.
It's more like I am happy to show anyone who wants to see, as proof, that I did indeed get through this.

Now this picture is somewhat of a fluke, since I took it myself, and only saw Roy after the fact.
He looks puzzled, like WTH??
Anyway, my hair is growing back, except not right over the scar itself, which gives it a strange look.
The scar is about 6" up the back of my head.
DO NOT look at my messy coffee table.  It is my home office.

I finished the two rugs I started last week.  The doctor told me I would be weaving in 6 weeks, and by golly he was right.

At present though, I am doing my entire web site over, and it is kind of my priority for a while, as much as I can stand it, anyway.

Here is my next venture, if you will, from some of the fabric I brought home.

It is going to make the fattest, thickest little rugs ever.  I don't usually use knit fabric, but I am making an exception.

Cause I love it.  And I can.

Still feeling my way around the studio.  Part of me knows what I want there, and yet another part of me vies for the old scenario.........production, business busy-ness, results.
It makes me feel agitated, and since I don't like that, I came home to walk the dog.
Change is good, just not always crystal clear, or easy.
But I have all the time to work on it, that I need.  It's ok.

In the picture, Roy looks like a tiny little dog sitting on your shoulder.

*looks at messy home office and goes... ewwww*

Just kidding... mine looks pretty much the same! Hey, it's home right? We are allowed to get a bit messy if we so choose.

Scar looks great. Wear it proudly!!

Congratulations on having such a well-healed scar, you can dine out on it for a long time to come! Who said nothing good comes out of a disaster?

Good for you for having ‘proper’ projects again. But then, you have great help.

PS: I love the 'quick and easy’ rug.

Thanks for showing us your scar, Hilary. It's lovely and you should be proud of it. It has healed beautifully. Love the tiny Roy on your left shoulder. He's your angel. It's wonderful to hear you so much you.

It's not a terrible looking scar right now, but I can see that it was a HUGE operation. I'm so glad you're here now! :-)

Your scar is healing nicely. After seeing my dad's open heart incision this summer, I can handle the scars well! I love your rugs! What do you use for warp?

Not a scar, Hilary dear ... a badge of honor. It's great to hear that you're weaving again!

Great scar! You've over come so much and should be proud of it. I know I would be.

Welcome to my world.
