STITCH AND SHIMMY

I am a belly dancer and a seamstress. I have two sons, a black cat named Lily, and a Siamese cat named Shao-Shao.

I started at 198 lbs. I gained the weight after a serious illness that nearly claimed my life. I had lost my sight, my ability to speak, and I couldn't walk. I was bed-ridden and had to be feed through a tube.
When I started to recover, I gained a lot of weight. My sight and my ability to talk came back quickly. It took me 3 months to relearn how to walk. ...

When I started to recover, I gained a lot of weight. My sight and my ability to talk came back quickly. It took me 3 months to relearn how to walk. It was six years before I could dance again.

I am now at 150 lbs. Patience, Balance, & Moderation.

It's Winter Solstice!
This year we are blessed with a full moon as well as a lunar eclipse. This hasn't happened for almost 500 years. So celebrate what a special season we are having!
I'm putting my stones & jewelry on my deck (in the light/dark) for a special magical charge!
Enjoy the Season!
