Christmas Sled Stocking #24


The name banner is getting there, slowly, slowly... I've found if I tuck my right elbow in and barley move my shoulder, it doesn't hurt as much, but it does make for slower stitching. I'm calling the surgeon today so hopefully I can get in to see them asap.
UPDATE - I can't get in until 18th July which is a bit of a bummer! That is the earliest availability. I hope that means he is good at what he does so he is in high demand! Hopefully there will be a cancellation well before then so I can go in earlier.

Thanks for your kind thoughts and prayers re:  my shoulder issues - they are much appreciated!
Happy Stitching,

Shoulder Update

Thanks to everyone for their support and well-wishes over the past months with my shoulder pain issues. I now have an answer to what is causing the pain - a bone spur and a 50-70% tear of a tendon (plus some other stuff but I don't understand what)! Now I'm off to the shoulder surgeon to get it fixed up. Hopefully it won't take too long to get in to see them.
Still no reason why - I don't recall a specific incident that sparked the pain, and apparently, often these things are through wear and tear. It seems for me, the minute I turned 40, everything has fallen apart! I'm hoping for a quick and full recovery process so I can get back into stitching more (and my other jobs as well I suppose)...

Have a wonderful weekend!
Happy Stitching,

Christmas Sled Stocking #22

After I thought I'd finished for the night and took this photo, I decided to complete the darker blue all the way across to the edge so I've actually done a little more than this photo shows. Now I can start on the name banner, and because this isn't for a baby yet to be born (it's for the parent of a baby's one I did last year), I can stitch the name right in place.
Happy Stitching,

Christmas Sled Stocking #21

Very happy with my progress over the weekend. I love it when there are large areas of the same colour - makes it fill in so much quicker.
I saw the movie 'Churchill' on Friday night - it was OK but I wouldn't recommend you rush out and see it today...
Happy Stitching,

Christmas Sled Stocking #20


Finished one layer of blue across the top of the stocking, The name banner goes above this.
I'm looking forward to a lazy weekend (I'm going to try anyway!)  of not doing too much as I think I'm getting a cold. It's just one thing after another lately...
Happy Stitching,

Christmas Sled Stocking #19


I did this blue stitching on Tuesday night but I forgot to update yesterday...This top section has fairly large areas of the one colour so it 'should' come together fairly quickly if I can sit long enough to do it...

I also had a second MRI yesterday as the place called me back - I'm hoping it was because they found something and wanted to take a closer look at it (and not because the first one got stuffed up!). I find out the results next Thursday.
I told my Osteopath that I was in a great deal of constant pain and he suggested I try a cream that is designed for horses and dogs (but has been used by many people, just not officially tested for use on people). I bought some and last night was the first night I've been able to sleep flat in my bed for over a week - I've been sleeping on the recliner couch as it doesn't go flat. For some reason, lying flat is incredibly painful. The stuff is called Rapigel and it has worked a treat for me!
Happy Stitching,
Kerrie
