This past month was September Smalls and I switched up my usual rotation to get a few things done. I also had almost no stitching time at the start of the month, so that kind of made BAP week disappear anyway.
The smalls I worked on this month are:
Cross for BaptismMabel Figworthy's Fancies.
Totally Nuts from JCS October 2015 on L'Amour by Chromatic Alchemy
Brooke's Books freebie
I turned this into a card, but my exchange partner has yet to post a photo and I forgot to take one, so I'll try and update my blog when I have a new photo.
And now, why I've been feeling sorry for myself. I had some pain in my hip in August and wasn't sure what was going on. I had a doctor's appointment coming up, so I waited to see her and she diagnosed bursitis in my hip. It hasn't really gone away yet, despite taking anti-inflammatories.
Now my left shoulder just started acting up 36 hours ago. I saw a different doctor at urgent care and was told that was also bursitis. It was incredibly painful and difficult to sleep on. Plus no hockey last night, no hockey tonight and I was supposed to play in a charity tournament this weekend and that's not looking good either. And of course NO cross stitching either...
I was very down last night although I watched a George Carlin special and ate some marshmallows, so that helped somewhat. One of those is probably healthier than the other :)
I'm a little better today, although I still won't go to hockey tonight. The doctor wants me to take a steroid prescription which I need to fill, pharmacy was closed last night, but I'm really worried this is a sign of something else. I'll let my regular doctor know and see how it goes, but I'm worrying too much about all this and especially not being able to stitch is so frustrating! There's a new freebie SAL by Lakeside Needlecraft for specialty stitches that has an interesting start. You can find it here.
I'm pretty sure I will not be stitching in pink though. Some blues, maybe greens, I'll have to rummage through what I have. And that might help lift my mood as well. Plus, maybe I'll be stitching slower with different stitches so I won't aggravate my shoulder.
I tend to be able to be positive, so feeling down in the dumps is really frustrating too.
I hope you all have had better weeks and will have a good weekend.
Happy Stitching to you!
