I have made steady progress on my secret project and now all that is left is the back-stitching. Here is a pic of a tiny portion of the piece just before I finished the cross-stitching.
I have already made a good amount of progress on the back-stitching, but I can't share that at all.
I have also been working on the crocheted wedding dress for my stuffed bear. Doing the same row over and over for the skirt. My hand has been feeling good, but I am not pushing it. Can you believe how wide that skirt is?
I haven't given you an update on my back issues lately. I am no longer in pain (well mostly). I had an epidural shot in April that took away the pain that was running down my left thigh. Unfortunately, it didn't relieve the numbness in that thigh so I had another epidural shot in the beginning of May. I still have the numbness and have decided to just live with it. I don't want surgery unless I am in severe, unrelenting pain. I've been dealing with bursitis issues in my right leg most likely caused by my favoring of my left leg, so I am working on doing all the exercises for both problems each day. All in all I am in a much better place than I was in February. There are times during each day when I can actually forget that I even have a problem (until I touch my leg and feel the numbness).
Hubby and I went flower shopping on Friday. I want to start filling my pots and I also promised to fill my mom's pots as a birthday present.
The pot that I sit in a "chair" next to the front door is filled with a free geranium that a local real-estate leaves at each home for Mother's Day.
I usually fill the other two pots that I have for my front porch with the same color geranium as I receive from the real estate. I think they look quite pretty.
I also planted my "vegetable garden", two pots of cherry tomato varieties.
They are the only vegetables that I have ever been successful in cultivating. I know my limitations.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. I will be busy back-stitching.
Thanks for stopping by.
