I am back!

Hello, fellow bloggers.  I realize I haven't been writing or doing anything miniature for about 5 days.  Why?  Had a stroke on Jan. 10.  Luckily, much of the damage began to reverse itself but I still had problems with speech, my right foot and right hand. 

I did intense therapy with 2 of the best, Janice and Megan, at Shore Rehabilitation Institute, where I was an inpatient. 

Part of my hand therapy will be making minis.  And typing.  My 2 little fingers on my right hand do not want to work well.  So typing will help.  And I have strengthening exercises, too.  I don't have to use a wheelchair, walker or cane, so I consider it such a blessing.

I'm off from work for 6 weeks so there's no excuse for not getting my faerie village done.

I'll be doing some mini things tomorrow so stay tuned.

Until then...



  1. Pat I am so sorry to hear you have suffered a stroke but glad to hear you haven't been too badly affected, you sound so brave. Best wishes for a full recovery and hope the mini-making will prove to be the best therapy for you!

  2. Pat, I am so glad you are back and with such a great positive attitude as well. Hoping your recovery is quick and full.
