It has been almost a year since I was in a horrific car accident and after numerous operations, months in hospital, bone replacements, bone fusions and skin grafts the doctors thought I might lose my arm. However, I am delighted to say I still have my arm, I do have some mobility issues and my arm is in a brace. I am on the road to recovery and that is what 2019 will be all about for me, lots of physio and learning to do everyday jobs again.
Adjusting to my mobility issues, I have had to teach myself to crochet and knit again, it takes time, my arm tires easily, projects that would normally take me a day now takes me a week. But I am a fighter and will not give up! Crochet is my therapy.
So for my New Year challenge I decided to do Dedri’s Sophies Universe, it has been on my list forever and will be the perfect challenge to get my groove back and Santa just happened to bestow the pattern book upon me this year.
I will make it slightly easier on myself by using self-striping Ice magic lights yarn, eliminating a lot of color changes and ends to sew in.
Slowly but surely will be my new motto.
Love Michelle xoxo
