Recovering

Well, I'm back.   Kinda  :)

Eleven weeks out from my big surgery.  I'm still crutched and braced.  Hope tomorrow at a follow up appointment I will get to eliminate at least the brace.

I've been back to work since the last week of December.  No choice.  No time off, No FMLA left.  So if I wanted a job and it's insurance, I had to suck it up buttercup.  I started with 1/2 days until I literally had 12 hours left before I would get "let go" and then went to full 8 hour days.  Only difference is I'm working sitting in a chair at a computer doing 'dumb' work.   VERY repetative!

This last weekend I had the urge to see if I could get my Union warped.  I had gotten the beam loaded with blue warp for denim, but then the injury...

It took me all weekend, in bits and pieces, to get it done, but I did it!

Tonite I thought I should try weaving.   I had put a little time into strip prep during these last months while I was home and recovering, so was ready to go.

All went well, for about 24 inches!   That's when I listened to my body, and decided to behave and take it easy.   It's a start....

I really loaded the beam up this time.  So long ago I can't remember just how many turns I put on the sections, but I'm going to be weaving denim and blues for a longggg time!

All for now,
JULIE
