As this year closes - best wishes for the New Year !

Wishing you all a good time with friends and family and hoping that the New Year ushers in many moments of Joy.

We are busy recuperating and doing well.
The past few weeks have shown slow but steady improvements;
Still painful but good progress nonetheless....

Initial attempts at an intermediate sampler.... an inch or so of Montenegrin stitches and it took all day!

By Sunday it was already much better and I could stitch a bit longer and it seemed just a bit faster.  I was able to establish all the bands on Martha Salter,
an intermediate level sampler 

On Tuesday, I switched to a Christmas related project. Initially it took some determination to push past the pain and just pull the needle up through the fabric

But slowly my fingers are building their strength back and I hope to have this tablecloth runner finished on Christmas Day

May the New Year usher in glorious days with needle and thread for all of us !

What lovely work on the runner--but don't push too hard--it takes time for recovery.

Glad to hear you're healing! Surely it's wonderful to hold your needle again, but be careful not to do too much.

What wonderful news to see you back with your needle - may the New year bring you many and rich blessings, and health!
