Hope your all well?
I am hanging in there!
I am really enjoying stitching the wonderful Scaret Letter design Mary Gail and thought I would share my 'space' with you all. Most of you know, but for those that don't... I am currently bed bound due to all the health issues I have right now. When I first became bed bound at the start of last year I initially thought hmmm sitting/laying all day this could work out kind of ok! How silly was I! When your independance is removed it's hard to come to terms with not going anywhere. Thankfully I have a wonderful adjustable bed... Feet and head so I can manage to get into a kind of comfortable position. I have 'things' around me, a table at a good height to the right of me, I tend to put all my drinks there as I spill everything! I have adjusted to doing things whilst in bed... Ha ha rude! No seriously!! I mean stitching, eating... That kind of thing! Yes keeping my sense of humour is really important, it's hard some days but like I say I am hanging in there.
So here is a photo I just took of literally in front of me... My view !
Nice big TV in bedroom... I have sky news on mostly as I listen more than watch. I have a Wii too, but. Not for me to get energetic! Ha ha no no no!! It's basically used so that we can log into Netflix, love just watching movie after movie. Ha ha look at those lovely pjs! Ha ha my quilt is rolled to the left, Jon's side during the day, then rolled back at night... It's works!
And my stitching station... Ha ha my knee!
When I stitch something not quick... Ha ha middle to large projects I like to keep everything together. The little project box works really well to store all the threads for Mary Gail. The little cubby square on the top right is filling up with all the off cuts of thread just from Mary Gail. I keep them as I sometimes use little odd bits for a stitch here and there. Got my happy smiley scissors.. To remind me to smile! And if your wondering what the block is... It's not a cake! Ha ha it's something someone recommended I explore when stitching for a neater cleaner stitch. It's a block of natural bees wax and it smells lovely. I don't use it all the time, but now and then if my thread is looking a little fluffy I pull the thread through it and then stitch with it... Makes the world of difference. And the lid of the box is a great stand for the key.
That is pretty much my world! Stitching and TV on in the back ground! Welcome! Ha ha
Until I next pop in.... Keep smiling :)
