Well I have not been stitching much lately as the radio frequency procedure on my back has worn off, so my pain is back to the levels it was before the procedure was done back in Aug. 2007. Add to that having a sick 7 month old in the house, and well not a whole lot of anything got done.
Last night I did start a new project though. Tam's Creations Blackwork Winter. I got the snowman in the center done and started on the border which surrounds him. I just love blackwork and I love this design. It is being stitched on 25ct, 2 strands over 2 of DMC 550.
I have to take DD to the surgeon today to see about doing the lower lumbar fusion she needs done. I am hoping the surgeon is willing to do it as the poor kid has been in so much pain. The surgery will have a long recovery with it, but if it works it should make it possible for her to work again and have a more normal life. I just want her to be pain free!
The month long stitchathon for March 2008 is over and the weeklong for April started on Monday the 14th. I predicted that I would do between 12,000 to 14,000 minutes stitching time total in this year's stitchalongs. In keeping with the challenge I joined here are my totals (in minutes):
Total so far: 7,052
