Time Off!

Well, I'm going to be taking a few days of enforced rest. Seems I've fractured my foot kicking a brick! That's what happens when I take the dog out in the yard and end up gazing at the moon instead of watching where I'm walking in my bare feet. And of course it's not the kind of fracture that responds to being set; it just causes severe pain. So I'm going to take a couple of days off work and just rest it. Maybe I'll get lots of stitching done. That's the plan anyway. But the pain killer I was given is pretty strong so who knows what I'll end up stitching. Gabe may end up with wings on his feet! ;-) I did make a lot of progress on CDC yesterday. I'm working on the final row of circles on the bottom of the piece. I can see the end coming up. I'm really excited cause this will be my first finish in almost 2 years. I do believe my slump is just about over.

I'm so sorry to hear that you are in pain. If there is anything at all that I can do just ask, I'll be more than glad to help any way I can!
I always get so motivated when coming to the end of a project, and excited to start a new one.
I recently pulled out a ufo of my "mythical dragon", will post a pic soon. take care.

Thanks, Tracy, for your kind offer. I need to see a podiatrist according to the urgent care dr. I went to. I'm taking a couple of days off work and just resting it. I got quite a lot of stitching done on Sunday and I'm hoping to get more done in the next couple of days. Dave is out of town so I don't have to take care of him.

Hi...I just found your blog. Your foot injury sounds quite painful!

I like the HAED that you have picked out, and your CDC piece is looking fabulous :)

Oh, ouch! So sorry you hurt your foot. That's not a good way to get stitching time in! {;^). Hope you mend well & quickly.
