Stitching and Doctors

The new JCS looks like a great edition with all those yummy Halloween stitches! If my subscription doesn't kick in on time for the mailman to bring me this issue, I will definitely have to go by the bookstore to pick it up!

One of my orders arrived yesterday with 3 Christmas charts - Believe by Dames of the Needle, Joy to the World by Shepard's Bush and Wish by Shepard's Bush. I am still waiting on order #2 with several charts I am very anxious to get my hands on!

I have gotten a lot more stitching done on my Christmas piece! I still need to finish up the rest of the green on the ornament, the remaining white and the last of the red. I am hoping to finish it up by the end of the weekend so I can pick up Willow Tree Sampler next week to resume working on but the bursitis in my shoulder has been acting up which makes it hard to stitch for long periods of time. The Christmas piece may not be finished now until the first part of next week! Those aches and pains that accompany getting older can really put a damper on life in general! LOL!

Still pretty dull around here. A doctor appointment for me today which is ok cause it's only lab work for my thyroid level. I am keeping my fingers crossed the results are still at a normal level and medication is still not required. I am only going in for thyroid checks twice a year now instead of every month which is a lot easier on me!

Your Christmas piece is lookin' mighty fine. I love the white bow. It really sets the piece off.

This looks really pretty! And, I can't believe what a good friend you are to let one of your samplers walk out your door!!! (Reading from a few days ago!;) )

Wow, Sherry, that Christmas piece is coming right along! I hope your pain subsides so you can get it done. I hate not being able to stitch when I want to!

Good luck on the thyroid. I just had my meds adjusted and I'm not too happy with the results. Stupid thyroid!

I hear you about the aches and pains of getting fun at ALL!

Your Christmas piece is beautiful. I can't wait to see it all finished.

I'll have to head out to the bookstore today to see if they have the October JCS. I love Halloween stuff.

Halloween and Thanksgiving are my two favorite holidays to do stitching.
