Hi friends! I would like to share my recent finishes with you.
🍀☘️March freebie by romyfrees.blogspot.com☘️🍀I am stitching this whole cute series. Only problem is that the months are in Italian. That's okay. Just requires a bit of ingenuity to make it all work and fit.😉 I perched this on top of the cubby shelf. I stitched this two over two on 28ct white Jubilee using VMSS flosses and DMC. The fabric shown is the backing material.
Our friend Georgia gifted me with patterns also. I took pictures of the patterns, and like a dunce, I deleted the pictures! I am stitching up one of the lovely patterns right now. It is Quaker Easter Egg by Bent Creek. I absolutely love it! I hope to finish it soon.🥰
I had an MRI on Monday. And an EMG on Tuesday. Have you ever had an EMG? 🥺 OH MY GOODNESS! A HORRID TEST. Unfortunately I had it once before, on my wrist. Longtime followers of mine may recall me describing THAT!! The doctor inserts needles under your skin and then sends electric currents into you to test your nerves. This time it was for my right foot. Yes, I am still having pain in my foot since July. I barely have a problem with the plantar fasciitis. It is tightness and pain along the top of my right foot that does not go away. At this point, since no one can figure it out and get rid of it, I am just sucking it up and doing the treadmill. I am back to 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the afternoon usually 6 days a week again. I need to. I gained weight these last months when I stopped walking because of the plantar fasciitis/foot pain. And my back got weaker and I have had a LOT more back pain because of it. I actually scheduled an appointment with the neurosurgeon. The same one who did a discectomy in my neck. I decided to look up online and see if I could find additional lower back exercises to do daily. I have been doing the same PT exercises for SO MANY years for my SI joint problem. My back is feeling better and stronger. I would rather not have surgery! I do return to the orthopedic doctor next week to discuss the test results. We will see if he gives me a shot in my foot?
Stay healthy my friends! I have been praying SO much more. These are really intense times we are in!
Stitching and praying,
