I stitched for a little while yesterday afternoon. I was very good and took heed of all the warnings not to overdo it! This is what I achieved - ok not a vast amount I know but I enjoyed each and every stitch. The only thing I was unable to do was to cut the fabric with my Gingher shears so Ken did it for me - under close supervision of course! He said that he didn't realise that we had such a good pair of scissors and I told him that 'we' didn't but that 'I' did and to keep his hands off. He ruined my last pair by cutting carpet with them! The Love pattern is by Birds of a Feather and is stitched 1*2 on 35ct white Brussels linen with DMC 815.
This is the beautiful white orchid that my Stitch-n-Bitch group sent to me. Isn't it gorgeous? I am so lucky to have so many caring friends, both on and off-line. Thank you to everyone who has supported me by leaving encouraging comments, emailing me and sending me such wonderful gifts - I am truly blessed!
I have removed the Mepore dressing as the cut is healing well. Not long now until the stitches are removed and I can start massaging and exercising my hand properly.
I have a pile of ironing if anyone is interested? No - oh well don't say I didn't offer!
