I haven't gotten in as much stitching time lately as I would like. My back is acting up again and making sitting very uncomfortable. I have taken to stitching at the breakfast table since those chairs provide the least discomfort. I have to get up frequently and that cuts into my time but I had the Hubs move my Dazor over by my chair so I can at least get some stitching done. I get pretty cranky if I go more than a day without the needle in my hand!!!
Most of my time has been spent with 272 Words. I think it might actually be the source of my back issue, this time. I have it on a Kay's lap frame, the largest they make, and it really doesn't work well in my usual place on the sofa. I find myself sitting twisted for long periods to get across the row and I think that might be the problem. Anyway, I have added 3 rows of the verse which I will not show here since it is after all, just verse!!! I am hoping if I keep plugging away I might be able to wrap it up by the end of the month, or at least by the end of Labor Day weekend. Keep your fingers crossed!
I have also managed to get some time in with a couple of other pieces. The long neglected Ann Bowers came out for some love this past week.This is before:
And this is after. All that blank space is verse...over one...on 45 count. I am doing it in tent stitch but still!! I guess you can see why I've moved ahead to the next row!!!
Then, I also worked on my Scarlet Letter piece, and made quite a bit of progress on that! Before:
And this is after.
I admit to taking some liberties with a couple of the colors but I am really enjoying this one and having a hard time putting it down to work on anything else.
Well, that's about all for now. This is IH&SW weekend so I hope to get in lots of stitching time and have some great progress to show you next time!
