Update Christmas Dreams and Quaker Welcome

I managed to complete the main part of stitching on Christmas Dreams, the crescent shaped Santa. All that is left is the backstitch, the words, a few stars, and the beads. Here it is:

I wanted to switch to a different piece so I pulled out Quaker Welcome by the Stitcherhood and corrected the error that Sam made when she tried stitching on it to attempt over 2 thread stitching. Here that is:

That's it for stitching this past week, but I did get some done so that's good!

Update on Christmas Dreams by Joan Elliott

Because my camera is in North Carolina, I had to scan my progress. So this picture is a bit yellow. The fabric is white with silver metallic threads through it. Looking at the last WIP pictures I took, I can see that I have made more progress than I thought. In the last couple days I have filled in quite a bit, hopefully I can continue making progress.

I am getting closer to a finsh! YAY!

It feels good to have my pain level low enough to actually do some stitching.

Being Awake Again

Sorry I have not been posting. It has been a very rough few months and I am finally recovering. I will hopefully get the pictures I promised up soon. My camera is currently in North Carolina with my sister in law and brother who are up there visiting family. They should be back next Friday or Saturday.

I haven't been doing much stitching. I just haven't had the energy or the ability to sit up long enough to do any. The more detailed account is on my Chronic Pain Blog.

I am finally feeling better physically and am working on the mental and emotional aspects of spending weeks in severe pain without relief.

I am still around :)
