I'm not stitching much lately. I have this very annoying pinched nerve in my neck. Usually it goes away in a day or two, but this SOB is not cooperating with me. The doc says to "keep moving", but I seem to alternate between moving and being completely immobile. Like a statue. I'm not good at dealing with pain and I'm cranky as all get-out.
I had a wonderful, wonderful visit with my friends Carol and Linda on Friday. We met for some shopping and lunch, and then we were headed to a local library to stitch, but when we asked our waitress for directions she told us to use their empty side room. Perfect! So we sat by a big picture window and stitched the afternoon away.
And there were a couple of surprises! Our Linda had been antique shopping and found us these wonderful scissor frogs! Now my scissors can live in beauty. They were getting tired of the suppository mold. Isn't it pretty?
And Carol, our Over One Queen, stitched these ornaments for Linda and me. Linda and I both agree that Carol is the touchstone when it comes to over one stitching. In my stitching history, I've seen lots of models and finishes, but Carol's over one stitching is absolutely perfect. As you can see....
And here is where it lives on my kitchen Christmas tree!
Well my bloggy friends, this is the limit of my computer time. My neck, shoulder and arm are screaming at me already. I have so many comments that I want to leave on your blogs - everyone's stitching at this time of year is so gorgeous. But I promise to catch up with all of you after this bugger resolves itself. And I'll catch up with you so much that you'll be sick of me!
Till next time!
