Healing my knee by stitching.

Okay the title may not be totally true. Last Sunday, I got up from my chair to go to bed and twisted my right knee. No problem, I figured I would wake up in the morning and it would feel better. Not! I went to work and was on my feet in heels a whole lot and of course my knee swelled. Iced it, wore flats to work on Tuesday and everything felt great. Wednesday....2 1/2 hours straight on my feet did me in. My knee swelled up like crazy. I was limping around. Of course, I still needed to work on Thursday and Friday so it had no time to heal. Ice at night and some Aleve can only do so much.
So this weekend, I am trying to find as many activities that require sitting as possible. Reading works and so does stitching. I have definitely made progress on Baker Beach.
Here is last weeks pic:

 
This is Baker Beach as of Saturday afternoon.
I hope to get a lot more done today. 
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. On Monday, I will be joining the Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are stitching.

I also want to invite everyone to visit the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe for a great giveaway! 
  
Thanks for stopping by!

Oh dear... the Slow Sunday Stitchers say you must sit still and stitch until it heals!! Thanks for linking up!

The resting yesterday and today has definitely helped.

The stitching and resting are helping.

Slow stitching time sounds like a great reason to get some much ended rest for that knee. Enjoy!

That looks like some tricky cross stitch! Is it your photo? Be well!

Ouch! I hope it feels better soon, but it is a good excuse to sit and stitch. ;-)

I do hope you knee is better by now! I also hope it is temporary. At least you can sit and stitch as you ice, right?
