I know I have not been on here for a very long time, I went through one of those
phrases just like having a writers block, but a block about everything so found it difficult knowing what to write over the last few weeks as I just had to rest and do just little and often bits of sewing when I could due to my MS.
This meant no heavy quilts being hand quilted and no sitting long hours over the table, just sit and stitch on the settee a comfortable place indeed while the MS springs its pains and strains onto my legs hands, eyes etc. One thing I am grateful for I don't have Progressive MS, but what ever I have is annoying enough.
Ive been stitching this green man in needlepoint which I had found in my cupboard the other day and decided to have fun with this again, I felt in the mood for it. I drew this by hand a while ago from a painting I did years ago.
Finally I'm working in embroidery on the Celtic ring to go round the neck on the Priestess gown. Everyone is working away on different sections at the Wednesday crafts group. I'm working in white shiny satin stitch on silver along with chain stitch with a thicker red. i did panic at first but I am getting into the flow of it now.
So between the Celtic neck band and the green man in needlepoint I am keeping busy.
My poor baby Alice is not very well, shes 15 and having a lot of tummy problems, the vet is currently doing some tests so were keeping our fingers crossed that Alice is not in too much pain. Shes just sleeping at the moment and I just cried buckets and buckets at the vets thinking she would have to be put down today but the vet said shes just uncomfortable but not extreme pain otherwise she would not be able to lie down. I m just making the most of time Ive got left with her giving her lots of cuddles and kisses when she does wake up. If only dogs could live as long as us eh.
