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 !
