I'm still here, still dealing with daily pain. I'm learning to find the balance between what I want to do and what I'm able to do, and I'm getting to where I know what my limits are. I have another doctor's appointment in a couple weeks with another new doctor; it's been hard trying to find one who takes me seriously. It's frustrating, but I'm trying to have a positive outlook on it. This may never go away, but I'm alive, I have a wonderful family and lots of friends, and I do consider myself truly blessed.
I've had to back off from a lot of things. My level of pain varies from day to day so it's difficult to plan events. Most of my large projects don't get a lot of attention right now because it hurts too much to hold the fabric. I've been working on my little WIPs and have started a couple of new ones just because.
I did finally finish the blanket for my new nephew, Luke; he should be born any day now, so I need to get it in the mail ASAP to my sister-in-law in Florida.
I'm really happy with the border. I used this tutorial for adding a round of double stitches in Peacock. Then I did a round of half double stitches in Delft and a round of single stitches in Peacock. It measures about 33 inches square.
Thanks for reading and looking.
