Terrible summer and an asthma

Hi, there!

 I came back on my blog, but oh wow, today is September 8th! I'm very very sorry I couldn't visit any blogs, websites or Flickr pages for a couple of weeks.
I had an asthma attack around 20th August, and it was slightly then. But it hasn't been improved, and I came to have any other symptoms (caught cold by air conditioners. - I was so stupid. All the rooms in my house were well air‐conditioned, 'cause it was intense heat of summer outside and I had feverish. But the rooms were TOO COLD! I had CHILLS!) besides an asthma.
I've been a patient for about one and a half years. I thought it caused by the mental shock of my mother's death and my living environment was changed significantly. But I have sometimes slight symptoms even now. I have this kinds of DNA? Oh No!
I'm in recovery, I have a cough though.
I make it a rule to think positively, 'it improves than the last year'. I had fatigue fractures 4 times by the persistent coughs in 2008. And actually I had many stresses in this summer - natural disasters of flood and earthquakes, and diseases of my father's and mine. To tell you the truth, I've been so scary of fractures this times...

Today I had no photo related on paper crafts. So I introduce my bobbin lace.

 I made this for the first time in about a year. This was a tule lace (point ground lace) sampler for practicing which I made in middle of last month.
The bobbin folder is stamped the Hero Arts 'Heart Flower Blossomes' stamp. Haha.
I made 2 more folders last year. I love its antique look. <3

Thank you for peeking! :)


  1. Dear Tomo,

    I am so sorry you have to go through all this! I hope you are feeling better soon! I love your bobbin lace, so beautiful!

    Sending hugs,

  2. Oh you poor thing. I wondered if your Dad had been ill again, but it was you. I know how bad coughing can be as I had a bad cough last year as a result of clots in the lungs. I pray you are getting better quickly. Maybe the weather cooling down will help.

  3. ともさん、お元気ですか?It's nice to see you around again! I am so sorry to hear about your illness and hoping everything is getting better regarding yours and your family's health. Your bobbin lace piece looks amazing! It looks so intricate and delicate. Very beautiful piece!

  9. Hi Tomo. I'm sorry to hear you've had such a bad summer. My little nephew has asthma and I know how up and down it can be. Your bobbin lace is gorgeous. It looks amazing but I imagine it's so hard to do. Take good care of yourself. Best wishes.
