Not-So-Sickbed Sewing

I haven't been surfing the net, or even watching tv, and I probably wouldn't even be typing out this blog now if I hadn't figured out how to hook this loaner up my wireless, which required 'thinking' about squatting down to look at the key for the last three days. Today, I thought about it...and did it because I'm almost done sleeping, but I'm not sure I'm ready to leave my squishy bed, but if I am ready to surf the net, I needed access, and thus-squat, groan (special effect), read, type, stand, problem solved for the next two days until I decide what to do with myself. I did have some fun during my 'vacation.' Kelly brought me a new 'craft' to try out, I've seen the finished products, but I never knew how it was done. It's called "Punch Out." You follow a pattern with a color of thread and literally punch it through with this sharp tool so it makes a million loops on the other side of the sheet that form a picture. It was fun. It is literally all I accomplished this week. I recommend it.

I'm done now, so I've pulled out project number two, which is a cross-stitch. This requires counting, and I've made one attempt pre-surgery that is so pathetic that I can't even take a picture of it, but I got a verbal 'class' from a friend for this one, so here's hoping on a better outcome, conveniently it's small enough to be a stocking stuffer, and it's just the thing only a Mom could love, so you know where that little gift is going.

Good to know the surgery went fine, and you're getting back to normal! Enjoy cross-stitching, I used to be crazy about it!
