Hi friends! I wanted to share the Hands On Design May finish with you days ago, but the headaches have been extreme, and I found myself often unable to stitch. I have it done now though. Here it is.
HERE to see what the pattern is supposed to look like. Mine looks a lot different. Madeleine pointed out to me how nice the colored chart looks. And yes, in the colored, symboled chart, the colors are more pink. I don't know why, but they are, instead of the purplish colors of pictured finished piece. So I matched flosses to the colored chart. Never did that before. I changed every, single color except 420, the light color in the basket. I also completed the basket handle. I could not leave it that way. I don't understand it that way!
I have been reading the first book in the series by Stephanie Barron, Jane and the Unpleasantness at Scargrove Manor. This book begins with a most interesting, true discovery. If you are a Jane Austen fan, I KNOW you will love this book and the series! I was searching for a way to explain this new information about Jane. The easiest and best way, is for you to read this short page HERE.
Then tell me, did you know this?! I surely did not. How fascinating!
I did go to the pain management doctor on Wednesday. She told me three times (because I asked three different times) that the facet injections in my neck did not cause the headaches. She said since my headache location is across my entire forehead and both temples, this is not from the injections. She says the injections "may have" triggered the headache, but not caused them. WHAT?!?! I have temporal arteritis she believes. Again, WHAT?!?! This is an inflammation of the arteries in your temples. What next?! She put me on a medication for headaches(which will take a week to work) and advised me to make an appointment with my family doctor. I saw my family doctor yesterday. She ordered bloodwork to see if I have inflammation going on.I am awaiting those results.
I will have two more April finishes for the cubby shelf to share with you next time. Thank you for stopping in with me today. I appreciate your friendship. Have an excellent weekend my friends!
Stitching and praying,
