Since I spent all day nearly every day this past week hunched over Eliza or Big Bertha, I should have expected this would happen. Nevertheless, I did find it within myself to bake some Apple Turnovers yesterday.
There was a partial box of puff pastry and a partial jar of apple pie filling left in the refrigerator, and I needed both to get out of there. We had two of them with ice cream last night, and we'll eat the other two tonight. Yummy...and just thinking about it makes my shoulder feel better.
Also, I was able to get the 8th Hocuspocusville block traced out. Lots of stitching to do on this one.
The brown ink against beige fabric is almost impossible to see in a photograph, but I messed with the lighting and contrast in Photoshop Elements so you can see it. It looks kind of spooky that way, no?
Then this morning I spent some more time on the heating pad and a good amount of time stitching.
"Stitch & Witch" sounds like my kind of event.
So I have an appointment with the hot tub this morning, and I'll continue with my Aleve and heating pad. Still, I think I might be able to do some short stints at the sewing machine today. Tomorrow is a cooking day, however, and so I'm taking great care not to make myself worse.
There's still a week left in the month, and I'm optimistic that I can finish both the cats and the gingerbread flimsy before time is up. The rest of my monthly goals are still up in the air. This might be the month of large, but few finishes.
How are things holding up at your end?
