I am gradually able to do a little more cross-stitching and knitting each day. I surely jnow when I have overdone it though as my upper arm aches.
Yesterday I worked on Santa for the first time in over 3 weeks. I added a few stitches of a pale blue to the fur on his hat on the right side. I'm not sure you can even see it. It almost looks grey.
I then promptly dozed off sitting in my rocking chair. A good night's sleep has been hard to come by since my injury. It is recommended that you sleep propped up to limit the shoulder pain, but that aggravates the herniated discs on my lower back. I have had little to no pain in my shoulder when sleeping flat in my back in bed.....too bad I like to sleep on my sides. That is just not possible until my shoulder heals. So most mornings I wake up at 4 a.m. and cannot return to sleep as I am no longer comfortable on my back and my legs are restless. The latter is no doubt due to the fact that I am no longer getting my mile and a half walk in each day. Hopefully it won't be too much longer before I can resume those walks.
I have made decent progress on the Butterfly Baby Blanket. I had trouble getting the pattern started and had to remove the first pattern row twice, but I am on track now.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching.
Thanks for stopping by!
