I'm Back!

Well, sort of...

July 4th Designed by Breanna Stewart

I'm using perforated paper for this one. I can hold onto it better. This is 3 days worth of trying to stitch. 

Then there is this...

Can you tell it's a toboggan? Pinterest shows using a thinner yarn and now I know why. This yarn may be better for the yarn garland. It is so soft. I have no idea what it is..suppose the label would tell duh. Today though, I'm just running on fumes. 

This healing stuff is exhausting. Started therapy this week. Going up to 3x a week. My therapist has been terrific. I've been to some that seemed to think their job was to hurt me. Terri has said more than once, "Being uncomfortable is good, pain is not." She expects you to try your darnest, but understands how quickly you tire. And she gives a wonderful massage. 

But, being that it is Sweetest Day, I'm really trying to help Rob with the housework today. On load 2 of laundry and I washed a whole 9 glasses and some silverware. Isn't much, but it's way more than normal. Plus, I washed my hair today too. I know, I know, big deal. But, it really is a big deal to me. 

Well, the Clemson game is over and OSU doesn't start until 8p. Think I'll try to stitch on the porch. 
Here's to everyone having a wonderful weekend!

Doing My Part!

Well, I'm trying anyway. Gotta love your online stitching supply stores when you are grounded.

As of today, I am no longer as grounded as I had been. I got my bra on all by myself! Yeap, definitely TMI, but I'm so excited.

Driving makes me nervous because one handed doesn't feel like I'm in control. an illusion.

But, I'm able to fold blankets now too. Dishes are still out. If the laundry is where it needs to be...the machines can do it...folding is still a pain. I can sweep, but a broom and mop are out. Cooking all depends.

Have to say though, men are oblivious.  The tub, toilet, sink, floors, and changing sheets....need desperate attention.  Hints don't work. My daughter even told me she can tell I live with males. Now, I should qualify men are oblivious.

Today is gorgeous.  Think I may get some porch time today. Natalie, the porch is still open...grab your stitching and come visit!

Oh, I'm going to have to make plans to visit Indiana.  Paula will be in state soon, and there are some other Indiana stitchers I'd love to meet. And Mary Jane could meet me at a half way point. So, I'm thinking maybe next summer. hahaha. Wishful thinking.

Well, lunch time and then the hammock calls!
Happy Stitching all!
