Done for now
The only thing really left to do is stitching along the strap to flatten it and I'll leave that for another time...I wore it today but had to leave the reception early since the fragrance in the room (despite signs asking people not to wear any in the building) made my DH ill so we had to come home. After 20 years of this, I'm mostly used to it, but today it brought home to me that my husband needs to retire from working in places where he can't control the environment. It seems to me in the last couple of years his response to an exposure is getting worse....the effect on him is worse and he's beginning to become angry when he's exposed, which has not always been the case, so I think the effect it's having on his brain chemistry is getting worse too. I know that complete isolation isn't an option for him, but I do think we can work harder at finding work for him in places where he can control the environment...and that just won't be in any building open to the public, so that lets out the visual arts center.
