Busy Doing Nothing

That's right, for the past 6 days I have been busy doing absolutely nothing and here's why....

Last Wednesday I had shoulder surgery and am expected to strap my arm into this sling for the next 4-6 weeks. REALLY??? After 5 days I thought it best to remove my arm from this device, my doctor felt differently and I am once again strapped into it.  UGH!!!

Does he not understand that I have a life to lead, a house to tend to, cross stitching to work on?  Six days has felt like an eternity. How will I last 4-6 weeks?  Answer: I won't.

Prior to surgery I finished stitching this...

Design: Vintage "Betty"

Which I plan to use for the cover on this...

This vintage pipe holder, which is in great condition, will be re-purposed into a scissor holder. 

The original design had Betty holding a floss card so I modified it and put an oversized pair of scissors in her hand.

I also stitched up these two designs...

Design: Calendar Girl ~ February
Fabric: 28ct Jobelan Lambswool
Floss: DMC

Designer: Little House Needleworks
Design: Calendar Girl ~ March
Fabric: 28ct Jobelan Lambswool
Floss: DMC, VMST

I must end now so that I can return to doing nothing, absolutely nothing!

 Thanks for stopping by and...

Until Next time ~ remember:
