Coming back to life...


I am finding it incredibly difficult to get back into the swing of things after my surgery. I really miss you guys! I'm currently handling the backlog of emails and translation-related stuff. Meanwhile my big bag project sits half-finished on my sewing table. Uggh. I hate unfinished stuff! There's also a pile of fabric that needs pre-washing. Now, if only I were motivated enough to switch on the washing machine!
...speaking of fabric, while in the recovery room after surgery, the male nurse later told me I was mumbling something incoherent about fabrics. haha. I guess they really are at the forefront of my mind!

One thing that cheered me up immensely when I was released from hospital was the arrival of my much awaited new ring, handmade by Nancy, art teacher and artist extraordinaire. She also happens to be one of my dearest blog friends :)
The ring is made from white cardstock, curled into a unique design and sealed in resin. The setting is silver plated. It really is one-of-a-kind and I love showing it off!

Hope to be back to regular blogging soon. Miss you!


  1. very beautiful ring - fits perfectly. Wishing you sweet dreams and motivation. {:-Deb

  2. Hello my sweet friend. Please take it easy and don't worry so much about your unfinished projects. Your health comes first ok? I hope you are well rested. Thinking of you always.

  3. Hi Duni! I remember after my surgery, it was a lonnnnnng time before I started to feel like myself again! You will honey....soon, you'll see!

    That ring is GORGEOUS! What a wonderful bloggy-friend you have that she made that for you...as a paper-craft lover, I'm totally intrigued! take care Sweetie!

  4. Hi Duni! :) I'm glad you're recovering already. :) Btw, the ring is really gorgeous on you.

    The thing about mumbling about fabrics made me laugh. Don't worry, just take your time in recovering. :)

  5. I have one of Nancy's pendants in that same style. Great minds think alike. I got it for myself when I needed a pick me up one time.

    I'm glad you are feeling somewhat better. That is so funny about muttering about fabric while under. I dream about yarn all the time, how sad is that.

  6. I cannot believe that the ring is from paper--how amazing!!

    It took me several months to recover from my surgery last year so give yourself the time it needs to recoup. We are not going anywhere.
    And I wish you the best!

  7. I'm glad you are recovering and I read on Facebook that you are cancer free - yay! So happy to hear that! It'll take awhile to get your strength back so just be patient and you'll be better than ever.

    That's funny about you mumbling about fabrics! Maybe you were thinking you could make some really cute scrubs instead of the ugly green ones most medical people wear!

    Love that ring! It's beautiful!

  8. Wow that is one incredible looking ring. I can see why it cheered you up.
    Before long you'll be back in tip top shape again and working on those projects that are waiting for you

  9. Happy to hear that you're getting back to your old self, Duni. I wish you only the best.

  10. Swoon! Wow, Duni, the ring looks amazing on you! So glad you liked it:)

    I know you are so overwhelmed, being separated from work is one thing, but artist being separated from their work can be shell shocking! Try to get back into it slow, OK? The people can wait. You have to relax some! That's so funny about mumbling about fabric while you were under too! Ha.

  11. I hope you have a speedy recovery, and feel up to your old self soon. Until then kick your feet up and relax a little.

  12. That ring is so cute!
    I would not want to know what I would mumble when I came out of surgery _ I can only hope it would be fabric LOL. Take your time getting back into the swing of things. It will happen before you know it :)

  13. You will be back to normal very soon. Try not to do too much too soon. I know what it's like to have unfinished projects but you need to take care of you for a while. It's nice to see you back. That ring is so artistic, that would cheer me up too :)

  14. Hi Duni.
    I'm glad to hear from you again. Thank you so much for always stop by at my blog and leave your sweet command.
    You don't need to worry about your unfinished project. Take more rest and gets better is the most important thing for your health and enjoy your new ring :)

  15. Nancy is super sweet and an amazing artist! The ring is beautiful!

    Thinking of you, sweetie, and wishing you well!

  16. One step at a time Duni. You'll be back in full swing before you know it. We miss you too, but your health comes first. I hope you enjoyed the roasted chestnuts. Growing up, my father used to roast peanuts and sell them by the bag full.

    That ring is beautiful, very eye-catching. Keep the fabrics swimming in your head.

    Many miracles and blessings!

  17. Beautiful ring. That was nice that she gave you a welcome home present. Glad you are back.

    Best wishes andhugs,
