A bit of this and that

Well I have done a bit of stitching this week. I have been working on the Madonna I have in my rotation. I also have been working on some crocheted dish cloths for my shop and a new apron. Amidst all of this I was feeling to well. I had craps (kinda like menstrual craps that I can't have anymore) and my upper thigh hurt when I touched it. I woke up Tuesday with a bit of a rash on my upper left thigh so off to the doctor I went yesterday morning. I have Shingles. So now I have to take an anti-viral med, i have a lotion to use on the rash and pain meds. I actually thought yesterday I wasn't going to need the pain meds but I did last night. I don't like taking them, I will if I am in a lot of pain, otherwise I will stick with tylenol.

I will take a few pics of the dishclothes and apron today as well as my progress on my Madonna. I took a few of the cloths but I think either the flash was off or the lighting was bad so I will have to try again once the sun if full up.

My only plans today are to stay home. It is suppose to be 99 today with a heat index of 107. I think I'll just stay in my nice AC'd house and stitch or something.

Stitching Update

Well I have been working on my rotation (sort of). I did work on The Wedding for a week. I am finding it not to bad to work with a great deal of white after all, it seems to be going pretty fast actually.I have found, also that this one stitches up great in hand instead of using q-snaps. It maybe the row after row of white that makes it that way I don't know but it is going great.

I belong to a group of over one stitccher over in Yahoo groups. They all have done some pretty amazing work and now have me hooked. I have dived into the world of Heaven and Earth Designes who by the way are having a sale this week:). I am working on Sunday Delight
I am finding that I enjoy doing the over one. It doesn't seem as hard as I thought it would be but I do have to use magnifying glasses to do this one instead of the regular Bi-focal on my everyday glasses. I am still only at the top of page one. I think it will be awhile before I get an entire page done.

I also did work on my Watergarden but have to snap a pic and post it later.
