The thumb splint has put a stop to a lot of stitching although I have managed to complete the daily requirement for my Temperature chart. Hard to believe that will finish in a couple of weeks. I promise to show a photo of the completed piece.
Today the physiotherapist was pleased to see that the swelling of the thumb had gone down a lot so I have a new splint, some exercises to do three times a day and an appointment for the new year. But best of all he said that so long as I don't remove the splint I can stitch a little :-)
Tonight I put a few stitches more into the Basket Band. The date is on this now and I would like to complete the stitching before the end of this year so it will have to be a case of little and often. There really is not much further to go. Here's the situation as at today...
Also, with splendid advice from my stitching buddy Sophie I have completely finished the Angels' Song wall hanging and have agreed to enter it in the Regional Exhibition in August 2021 I had such a lot of pleasure stitching this one and am thankful that Sophie badgered me into fully finishing it or it might otherwise have languished in the Drawer of Doom.
I have made a small start on the Mill Hill kit which was my prize from The President's Challenge. My first foray into stitching on perforated paper and I can tell you already that I much prefer linen. But so far so good and I am on track to have this completed by the time of our next Guild meeting in February. Isn't it wonderful we have a long summer holiday during which I will be able to complete all my projects and have plenty for the Show and Tell at Guild meeting. Ha ha ha.
For the remainder of this week we have a succession of visitors and I plan on doing a major cooking day on 24th as for that day my Electricity Company have graciously given me a "free day" so I intend to make maximum use of my oven and will stock up my freezer with baked goods and meals.
Until next time.
