Thank you to all of you that have e-mailed, phoned and even visited me I truly appreciate your well wishes and thoughts. Mwah to each of you.
I'm learning to cope with the ever persistent cough that goes with this thing called pleurisy and I even gave into taking steroids but I didn't expect to have the reaction that I got.
Now here's a word of warning, for those of you with weak stomachs look away.The steroids made my legs and feet swell. I never have had skinny legs, oh boy did I long for them. But I hoped my feet and legs would never get any bigger than they already were. Well, as a result of massive swelling due to a reaction from the steroids ,I can't sit at my machine and sew, so... not only have I nothing to show for OPAM I couldn't even show finished blocks for A Gardeners Journal SAL. I have been put on pills to try and get these legs back into shape but that could take some time. Ugly aren't they?
With that in mind I can show what I have been doing - all hand stitching of course.
These stitcheries are those ready to complete A Gardeners Journal. By crikey once I can get back on that machine they should fly together.
Cross stitch has also been played with. Again, once I can get to the machine I should have quite a few new mini pillows and a couple of samplers for the wall in my sewing room. Being confined to the house and having a lap top computer has been rather dangerous to the bank account though. With the help of some great 'on-line' stores I now have to live to be at least another 100 years older just to get through all the new 'to do's, but it's been fun though!
I hope each and every one of you are keeping well.
