After two weeks at home I start to feel well enough to be creative again.
Slowly my energy levels are returning and I feel I can do a little bit more each day.
Most afternoons I am very tired, so I do some spinning or painting.
My friend Ruth lend me her mothers spinning wheel and I bought some carded fleece at Eyebright near Richmond,also Ruth left me some carded wool to spin.
The last spinning I did was nearly two years ago, so it took me an afternoon to get into the swing of spinning again.
I hope to spin every day and use the wool for my knitting.
Paul is the next person I am knitting winter slippers for and Jean my friend put an order in for a pair of slippers.
My paintings are simple, watercolour images of every day items, mostly from my garden.
I use recycled paper and small pieces of watercolour paper for the cards.

I won't be able to work for a while, so we have to live of one income what will not be easy.
The only way I can earn some extra money is through my creativity and I hope to be able to sell my little painted cards and hand spun knitted slippers through my blog and face book.
