Thanks for the warm thoughts and
well wishes with my back!
I'm on the mend, so that's good!
A slip on the ice a couple weeks ago, coupled with
hoisting around a 20lb ham and then picking up two grandkids simultaneously
didn't go over too well with something in my low back.
So for the past three days, I've been in a reclining position with
and needle in hand!
I did start out knitting but just wasn't feeling it.
I remembered that I had
Blackbird Designs Summer Jubilee
all kitted up waiting for some attention.
I started it on Friday.
I'm stitching on 35 ct R&R 18th Century Blackbird
with the charted threads.
And let me tell you...it's a good thing I started this NOW
while I still have some sort of ability to count
threads on this dark linen!
EGADS! It gets tough after a while!
I'm about 2/3 done with the design though
and am pretty excited about that!
When my eyes couldn't see the 18th Century Blackbird
threads anymore, I switched over to my BOAF Peace Sampler.
It's coming along too!
Feels so good to be stitching again!
I hope to get these finished in short time, and
the finishes can't come soon enough, because while I was reclining,
my laptop wasn't far from me and I did a little
retail therapy of the stitching kind!
More on that when the new stash arrives!
I'll head off to the office tomorrow and hope I can sit at my desk for extended
periods without the aid of a comfy recliner.
But let's be honest...we all know I'd rather be stitching!
