Keeping It Simple...
Good morning everyone.
I hope you are all well.
Well I think things are slowly beginning to improve regarding my health issue....and my scan is booked for tomorrow ~ Thank Goodness....Things are still not great but I think there is a slight improvement with the neck and right arm......fingers crossed!!!....if I could cross them that is!!!
With that in mind and being totally bored stiff being off work and suffering from a severe case of cabin fever I decided to stop tackling any great crafting projects....because I just can't do them and I end up getting terribly frustrated with my right arm.....I've even decided that as it appears to have a mind of it's own it should have a name of it's own as it feels totally alien to the rest of me right now....maybe Audrey or Sybil.....
Anyway I thought I could manage a cross stitched bookmark on 14 count Aida....I usually work on a 32 count linen so this is totally not my thing although I can see the holes without my glasses.....which is a bonus I suppose.
So this has taken me well over three weeks but I am nearly finished.....
I have only managed a few stitches at a time but here we are...
I've been propped up on pillows, patterns put on stacked up books so as not to bend my neck too much and work placed on cushions.....but it's almost finished and I'm thrilled that I got this far.....
So what next....definitely not a big project but I'm sure I'll find something to do.....
And as for the rugby result last night.....I'm so disappointed for our boys but it is what it is and that's that....I still enjoyed the game though and will continue to watch......try stopping me.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by.
I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
Your bookmark's beautiful. I have trouble seeing 14 count Aida, you've got better eyesight than I. Hope you get some answers after your MRI.
Lovely to see you blogging Debbie and so pleased you're feeling a tiny bit better. Hope the scan will shed some light on things & you'll soon be on the road to recovery. Your bookmark is looking lovely......and looking at the list of book you've read this year it'll be put to good use lol. Take care.
hugs Jo x
The colours are lovely. Jx
it looks great Debbie and so glad you have your appointment. Hope everything goes well and they can help to sort out the problems for you
Oh Debbie, I hope that your arm and neck problems will soon improve a lot when the scan is done and the right therapy is found.
A good idea to stitch on something small, on a low count fabric. An your bookmark has become gorgeous. I love stitched bookmarks.
