I love to sew

I've wanted to post about this for a while but just kept putting it off. October was breast cancer awareness month but every month should be. If you are not taking your breast health serious I implore you to do so right away. With the statistics being 1 in 8 women wil suffer from breast cancer, breast health should not be takien lightly.
It has almost been two years since my breast cancer diagnosis and I am still weathering the effects. Somehow I thought I would be back to my normal self by now but some days it is still a challenge. One side-effect of either the cancer, the radiation or the meds that I never told anyone about--not even my husband and I tell him absolutely everthing...after all he is my best friend--is not being able to read. That's right I couldn't read. Oh, I could read the words but the meaning mostly absolutely escaped me. I was fouling up at my job, at sewing, at everything. Even now I am still experiencing some short-term memory loss but that too is getting better. The great news is that about three weeks ago I realized that once again I can read and it's wonderful. I've always loved the library and the book store and I'm trying to make up for lost time. In the last two weeks I've read two books and am close to finishing a third. I've invested in a Pandigital color ereader and sewing is taking somewhat of a backseat. I'm dividing my time between sewing, reading and bowling.
I finally bit the bullet and threw out most of my wardrobe. Losing 30 lbs has some drawbacks. I'm working on a pair of slacks that I plan to blog about tomorrow so say tuned. BTW here's a burning question.
