I finished stitching Rejoice on Good Friday. I decided to finish it in a flatfold. So that meant refreshing my memory with Vonna. :)
|Rejoice by Plum Street Samplers|
|stitched 2 over 2 on 28ct cream Meran linen|
|From dusk to dawn, from start to finish, from death to life, from cross to throne... Jesus is risen!|
I am very happy with the results considering I finished it on Holy Saturday and on Easter Sunday in a narcotic induced trance. Let me just say, I almost cried. I almost destroyed the mounting completely. Much prayer, chocolate and deep breathing saved it. For fear you think I am a druggie, I tore and stretched ligaments in my left SI joint(hip joint) 7 years ago in a bad fall. I have been living in pain every single day since. I have tried many, many procedures, injections, physical therapy, gizmos, gadgets, creams, whatever! I take two different meds to basically trick my body and nerves. When I slip, trip, get bumped, or misstep, my pain level spikes. Then I need the percocet. Blech! Let's not talk about it!
I finished the new book from the library, Barn Quilts. I enjoyed it pretty much. It was a bit of a document or it seemed a little like a research project. The pictures were great. There were also touching personal stories from farm families.
I just began reading Hush Now, Don't You Cry another new book, and another one by Rhys Bowen. Two books ago I read Naughty In Nice. That was a good mystery in a different series by the same author. This one I am beginning is from the Molly Murphy Mystery series. Very good series. I have been reading along through a few years here, since the beginning when Molly fled Ireland to come here to America.
Thank you for your comments. I am so glad you are here. :)
stitching and praying,
