I thought I might show you an ornament I made 5 years ago, in honor of my father. He died 5 years ago. He always called himself the Polish Eagle. He was very proud of being 100% Polish.
This is the progress I have made so far on the Riolis kit. I am going to call it Theotokos. I cannot read Russian and the Riolis kit is from Russia and has no printed English anywhere to be found. Good thing the DMC is numbered. I will just have to refer to the color photograph for the rest of my questions. And there will be many!! This will be my first significant project with lots of beading.
Since this is a large piece, I had to dig out the 9"x24" scroll frame I bought many years ago. I had never used it. It was still sealed in the package. I am not finding a stand for this brand of scroll frame locally anymore. It was a cheap one bought from Michael's. I do not wish to invest further into it. So I will try and make do, since I rarely stitch large projects.
My pain is very bad lately. I became nauseous from it in church this weekend. I kept telling myself I could make it. Then I started to faint, it was so intense. I had to just sit and pray to make it through. This "pain management" that I have STINKS!! The doctor AND his PA have had off 6 weeks so far. They still have off 2 more!!!! I called yesterday morning. I need new meds or med changes. NOW. The problem is their "coverage" for when your doctor or his PA are not there. Sometimes I have had NO ONE return my calls. Sometimes I have had battles with staff for DAYS without any help. Sometimes I cry and beg on the phone. Sometimes I am very, very assertive. It just shouldn't have to be this way. Not at all. I had to call back 3 times yesterday. The PA wants me to try Voltaren gel. This is a NSAID gel. The hope is that this will work without causing my stomach problems. They never called it in. They never called me back. They left the office early and just plain left me hanging. It is a good thing I had an appt in the late afternoon with my ob/gyn. I was telling her of my increased pain problems. She said she would just call in the Voltaren gel for me. That was it. Taken care of!! For crying out loud. It seems to be giving me that little bit of extra help thus far.
Thank you for stopping by today. I am so glad you did. May God richly bless you in 2014!
