Busy stitching...

Best thing for me to do... Stitch that is.

Hello my friends :)

I hope you have been busy stitching and smiling?

I have been blog hopping and WOW!! some amazing things out there being stitched and made.

So now to show you all what I have been up to...

Not sure if you know or remember but last year I started the biggest project I had ever started... It's called "The Sampler Game Board" designed by The Drawn Thread.

I have been stitching today and stitched from W, X,Y, Z, tree, 1, 2,3,4 and the line and little house.

Few more photo's...

It seems I am loving returning to this... It's really easy to stitch too.... But so time consuming!  Little by little and before I know it, it will be filling up and finished.

Sorry I need to vent.... You can skip past this bit if you like!!

I am still out of action.. No change with my leg, still in a lot of pain..... One day at a time.  Jon called the doctor today to see if they can do anything.  The doctor said she would talk to her associated in the practice to see what they can do?? And get back to my husband later... Jon called around 10 am called back around 5pm to see if there was any news... Appears I am not an urgent case as the doctor never called back.  

I really an so frustrated, beyond belief... See I am housebound, cannot move out of the living room, stuck on my sofa.  My 'good' leg is now hurting from trying to use the crutches... Takes me over 15 minutes to hobble to the toilet... I mean seriously it's obvious that I need help.  Jon cannot help me, he has his own medical problems... Han is also restricted with her own medical problems.  I just hope the doctor calls tomorrow... Jon no doubt will be back on the phone tomorrow... It's just terrible.

For me it's awful sat and every movement I make pain hits me... I cannot straighten my leg or walk on it.. All I can do it sit and stitch!  Thank goodness for that!  Seriously it's my stitching keeping me sane and taking my mind off things.

I want to say a massive thank you to all of you that are sending good wishes and happy thoughts my way... I may not be religious but I appreciate it all :). Your all so very nice and kind.

Enough of my rant!!

I am trying to stay positive... So on with the stitching!! 

Smiles to you all :)


  1. I so feel for you Jackie...those doctors are slack aren't they!! There must be something they can do for you! Your stitching is beautiful...this sampler is going to be amazing when it is done!
    Keep you chin up!

  2. Something for you to read Jacquie ARTHRITIS: Arthritis patients can benefit by taking one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken daily even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week (out of the 200 people so treated) practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain -- and within a month, most all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis now started walking without pain.

  3. Great job on your stitching. Hope you get relief and help from your doc.

  4. I hope the doctor tries a little harder for you. Not pleased to hear they didn't call back. :-(
    On the plus side your stitching progress is wonderful! That is a huge project!!!

  5. Your stitching is certainly benefiting - but I do hope the doctors can help soon. It's horrible when you can't get around, take care

  6. Wow I love your projects so much..
    Hope you get well soon
    Big hugs x

  7. Really lovely stitching Jacquie.
    Doctors are the same the world over....seems their time is the only time that's important!
    I do hope that you've been attended to and that you'll feel better soon

  8. Lovely to see a project come out again and you are enjoying making some progress on it.
    Fingers crossed the dr phones with some news for you today.

  9. Beautiful stitching, hope all is sorted soon with the doctor.

  10. This is a beauty!
    Argh! Yes, the medical field can be so frustrating to deal with. I am sorry to say, but the squeaky wheel gets oiled. You or Jon must be persistent! Do not let up with calling back. It is not right to leave a patient suffering without options. I do not know about you, but I printed off kiwikid's comment. This seems to good to be true.

  11. Dear Jacquie, I also am not religious, but "prayer" is for your health !!!
    Your stitches are beautiful, maxi amazing project!

  12. So sorry to hear of your pain Jacquie. I am praying for you my friend.
    Your stitching looks wonderful! Those little motifs are so pretty.

  13. I'm sorry to hear you're in pain and not getting the help you need.

    Sampler Board is looking good lots of colour changes!!!

  14. I am blessed with a mobile life.............can't imagine how hard it must be to try and manage when you all have you own medical needs which are restricting.................Dr's have no idea about reality at all........push for a second opinion on that leg............
    thank goodness you have the shops deliver in of the big chains here deliver groc from orders you do on the net..............I can't get it here but in the bigger towns you can................

  15. Oh my dear. I wish there was some way to cheer you up! Maybe the BIG rest and the stitching is just what you need right now. Hugs, xxxxx

  16. Love this project and all the little houses! So sorry you have been having such a hard time ~ hopefully the doctors will figure it out and be able to provide you some relief.

  17. This is a gorgeous project, I love all the little individual houses. You'll be done in no time the speed you are stitching.
    Have you tried contacting the Red Cross? My MIL does home visits for them, as a retired nurse she has the expertise to help people. Don't know if they can do anything for you? Other than that it's just a case of phoning the surgery regularly and nagging!


How wonderful that you have popped in to visit me.
Thank You so much for taking time to leave a comment.
Smiles :)
