There’s a reason some of are given blunt point needles. Thankfully I haven’t bled on OTR yet, but I know my days are numbered. I put quite a bit of work into this over the weekend. I haven’t yet spent that 1 hour per day on cutting/piecing, it’s just too much to face a the moment. I did pull my kit out and go over the fabrics and I have started cutting in my head. Which is necessary. I know my limitations. I am not a skilled quilter. I think that one of these years I may be. Maybe. Anyway, I’ve found that if I go over everything in my head a few times before I actually do anything it goes better when I get down to work. And while I did make good progress on the embroidery this weekend I didn’t get as much done as I could have because I spent most of Saturday down for the count with a vile headache that would not quit. I ended up taking a Tylenol 3, and in all honesty I am sick to death of codeine at the moment. It gives me the *freakiest* dreams. Or maybe my dreams are always freaky and the coke is disrupting my sleep so that I remember them. Whatever. As of this Wednesday it’ll be 28 days sick for me. If I’m not feeling close to 100% by then I’m going back to the doctor. I’m starting to wonder if I’ve picked up mono or something like that.
Alright now what you come here for:
The last picture is one more length of thread after I put it back on the q-snaps. I’m past the half way point on this panel and the only fussy bit that’s left on this one is the sleigh.
Other than feeling sorry for myself I’ve also been working on my Summer House exchange. There’s been a couple bumps in the road but it’s going well and I think my vision is going to work.
