Pain stops play :-(

I was hoping that I would have lots of lovely things to show you from my weekend and from the last few days as I have had the luxury of time not at work but sadly I have trapped a nerve in my shoulder and so have been doing very slow and steady stitching with not much of note to share.

It is very painful and I am miffed, not least as these were my two free weekends to get all of my Christmas ornaments sorted. I am working Saturdays again for the next couple of weeks so have limited free time until mid November.

Ho hum best laid plans as they say. At least I have lots of great TV to watch, I have been enjoying some Sci Fi, courtesy of friend’s recommendations. I have been watching the new Star Trek:Discovery and an X-files like Stranger Things, both of which I have really enjoyed.

I do have a finish to share with you from previous work, this is one of the lovely Jenny of Elefantz’s designs which I made as a, ‘thank ewe’ , present for my friend Sharon for all her help over the past few years with taking Jake to and from Uni. She likes sheep and we have plenty in Marsden so it seemed appropriate!

This is from Jenny’s Primitive Stitching series which was part of the Stitchery Club a while ago. I can’t find this pattern on her Craftsy page but there are many more other gorgeous ones there. I particularly love the little cotton reel.

She also has a free Block of the Month , this year based around the theme of home which you can find at the link. She is so generous with her free patterns and tutorials and all of her things are so pretty, I love visiting her blog!

I really need to stitch some more of her designs soon and I love these which are on vintage linen, pics from Jenny’s Craftsy page.These are both from this year’s Block of the Month.

I have a few quiet days this week as I am working from home, hopefully things will improve and I will be back to full capacity soon. Thank god for the internet, at least I can browse and look at all of the lovely things other people have been making as well.

Hope that you are all well and happy, take care and thanks for visiting.

  1. Thanks for the sympathy, at least I can still sew albeit very slowly. Would have been very annoyed if I had all this free time and no crafting was taking place!

  2. My heart goes out to you withe the shoulder pain, it’s quite debilitating. (( hugs))
    Your prim sheep stitchery is BEAUTIFUL. I love the mix of colours and what a beautiful ‘thank ewe’ for your friend. May the Lord bless you with swift recovery sweet gal. xx

  3. Thanks Jenny I really appreciate your thoughts and prayers, it is getting better but is probably the most painful thing I have ever had. It is also frustrating as I can hardly hold a needle! I was only thinking of you the other day when you had your finger operation. Thanks for your lovely comments on my stitching as well, I have got so many more of your designs waiting to be done and have just finished one for my daughter for Christmas which I need to make into a hanging.
