Tidbits : Skirt, Balance and Swap




OK, this was again not my best week.... After the flu from last week I got terrible balance problems. In the hospital they found out that I have Morbus Ménière and Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. Got some medicines and I have to perform some special head maneuvers during the day. Very sad about all this, and I have not registered any improvement yet.
Last Sunday I managed to finish the skirt for my friend Anne, just before the balance problems started. Hubby took some lovely pics of her yesterday.


And the end of this week was a bit happier too because of the secret winter swap from the European Street Team on Etsy. I received it yesterday and was so happy with it. The nauli sisters were my swap partners, and they sent me a lovely book and some gorgeous buttons. Thanks Eva-Dewi and Johanna ! I decided I am going to use the book as a portfolio for my button art, when my balance is right again.....

The skirt is great, what kind of fabric is it?
So sorry about your meuniere, hope they find out the right medicine for you...

Hope the medication will help, as this is not a very pleasant feeling losing your balance all the time. The skirt is great! And the Nauli sisters spoiled you !
Try to have a nice week !

About 5 years ago I was diagnosed with the disease too. I got medication and after a while it dissapeared as suddenly as it hit me. Really strange but I can tell you it was a relieve as it's a really weird feeling to be out of balance all the time. Wishing you well, sweet Ella!! Take care! *hug*
