update on life

well today i had my foot down most of the day..was working on this crazy jigsaw puzzle my gf gave me as a gift. i loved it and for some strange reason it took me almost a week to put together a 1000 piece puzzle. normally i make one that size in a day maybe a day and half. but now that is done and tomorrow i plan on sewing.

as for my foot i have had a spinal block which i really wish they would have done three months ago. what they do is put the nerve to sleep and allow it to reboot itself. it can take 3-14 days for any releif...but so far since yesterday i have had little pain..just pressure. i love how i can stand and make dinner without thinking opps i have to sit down and take pain killer. next week i hope to vacumn that is my true test.

i will update the blog another time with the cross stitch i am working on...and going to start another one or two more...yes i am a to finish some up.

hope everyone has a great day and gets to enjoy what they love to do best. tomorrow mike said we are going out somewhere to celebrate. i can't wait!!!

2010 cross stitching

here is the bookmark that I sent Dee through the Kustom Krafts group. she said it sparkles i am thinking because of the chirstmas card i had put it in with sparkles on it. got a good chuckle out of that one.

This is the mona lisa book mark my grand daughter Jenessa wanted, it took me a week to do, just mailed it off to her today. i know she will get a lot of use out of it since she reads so much.

happy new year

well i have had a wonderful end to a trying year, all the kiddies are now home and house is quiet again. i am working on a mona lisa book mark for my 8 year old granddaughter Jenessa who was here for a week to enjoy nana and papas time. she is reading the fifth book of harry potter and loves to read so i will make her a bookmark for herself. she loved the one i got in an exchange on a cross stitch group i belong to. then i will go back to my sons picture and my new start of mystic tigers from Kustom Krafts. also doing a head bookmark...that is a sal. Story keep enchanted. about 90 colors in it so i know a lot of threading needle.

news on the foot...i saw the doc yesterday...he told me that we have at least a years time to allow this to heal but i can walk with no brace or boot anymore as long as i am comfortable with it. i don't mind not having the support but it still swells and the swelling causes pain. next week i will be going to a pain management specialist. time will tell with this i guess.

time to get stitching today...want to finish up my granddaughters bookmark..if i finish i will post a photo tomorrow.
