Thankful that I can stitch.....

Hello my wonderful friends...
Whilst sitting/laying here in my bed... Yes I am still here!  Been here since last Saturday!  It seems I was starting to get on my feet, putting a little weight through my leg/foot on my crutches.  This was going good I thought when I left hospital on the 7th February.  Then clearly knocked for six waking up in horrendous pain.... Well thankfully my medications are really helping and it only really hurts if I move!  I have to move a few times through out the day... Oh you know for the loo!  I have learned to time it right... About 30 minutes after I take medication then I am ok to move.... I am able to get to my commode .  Yes... I had a commode delivered whilst I was still in hospital, it's the best thing since sliced bread!! See I would never in a million years be able to get any where near our's just too far.  So I am very grateful for the commode.

Appears I went on a tangent again?!!

It's Saturday today... How are you all?  Do anything exciting?  I ask as well I have no idea as to when I will be able to do anything exciting!  Your guess is as good as mine as to how long I am likely to be like this!??  I miss my independence mostly... The fact that I cannot go anywhere or do much for myself, very frustrating.

Aargh but!!! I can stitch!!!!
And oooh I have been stitching!!!

I want to thank you all firstly for playing along and guessing the design and designer... You will be pleased to know you ALL guessed correctly! Ha ha Yes the designer is Prairie Schooler and the design is "Tortoise and the Hare"... I am stitching it on 28 count tan/beige linen with DMC threads.  I am really enjoying it too!!

So onto my up date... journey so far....

This is where I am right now..... Loving stitching this so much I never want to put my needle down!  Whilst thinking as I do here in my bed...

My first thought is... Thank goodness I am able to stitch!!...

....... I have thought of my next project, oh it's beautiful and really lovely and I cannot wait to stitch it.  The quicker I finish this Tortoise and the Hare the quicker I can start the next stunning project.  And knowing me.... I may tease you all again and make you guess!!! Ha ha 

So I hope your all well, smiles to you all :)



  1. surely that leg must be healing soon...............thank goodness you can still stitch..........just thought I should comment so you had something to do.............I have a list of bloggers on one of my tabs at the top of my blog..............maybe you could go thru it slowly........
    Do a review of the blogs you follow..........a few each post????
    Sorry trying to think of things to fill in time and distract you..........
    cute turtle too...........

  2. Ooooh, sorry that you're in so much pain. I hope that it leaves soon! The Tortoise and the Hare is one of my WIPs! I haven't worked on it in so long, I didn't recognize it here on your blog. Now I want to resume stitching it! Glad you are getting some stitching time in.

  3. Love the stitching you are doing!! So good to hear you a bit happier...even if you are still having to be in bed.

  4. Awww. I was so close! The turtle shell is kind of a wheel... right...? And that hill is totally a waxed car. :b

    Here's to healing up to independence again! :D

  5. Great progress, this is a really good design for stitchers, although you are more of a hare right now with your speed!

  6. Dear Jacquie, at your disease you are very diligent!
    The Tortoise and the Hare look great!

  7. Firstly - great stitching! Keep stitching and stitching... and stitching. :) The update looks very good, "primitive" style.
    Second - it looks like you are adjusting to your situation.. I do hope it improves soon, but in the meantime - so glad to know you are OK and functioning - as much as can be expected.
    Thank you, and look forward to your new updates!

  8. Great progress. I hope there is more your docs can do then just giving you pain meds.

  9. The points you described are common but very important indeed. Looking forward to more tips from you.

  10. It's looking lovely Jacqui.

  11. Massive update & a great project to be working on :)
