As I might have mentioned before, the pain level in my shoulder and thumb has decreased substantially. Most days, it's almost as if it never happened. Some days, however, are designated as "pain days," and yesterday was one of them. I'd hoped to do some weeding in the yard, but it would have been a bad decision. Even Mike was telling me to sit down for the day, and so I was able to have a slow day without guilt. By day's end, I was feeling much better, although I'll admit holding a needle for much of the day was making my thumb cranky. It's feeling pretty good this morning.
So, what was all that slow-stitching? Well, thanks for asking. I finished up the first section on Calendula Patterdrip's Cottage.
