Chapter 64, pictures and good news

Well, here are the pics of the Year of the wiener blocks I have gotten done in the past 2 months. I have now done 7 out of 16. I really like the way they are turning out. I tried to take a pic of the socks I made Amanda, but she wore them home before I could get a pic. I am still working on my BCQC for stitchmap. Or at least I will be on Wednesday. I also joined another class, this one on hardanger. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. LOL I have a feeling stitchmap will increase my fiber addiction, not decrease it. The good news it that there is a 70% chance I wont need surgery for my shoulder! I start physical therapy tomorrow. The doc says we will know more by the end of November, but it seems that by working on my little "projects" instead of just resting my shoulder, I actually helped it. (Yeah me!!)

Chapter 63, one armed work

Well, went in for another MRI, this time with a cat scan and a dye shot. hoping to hear from the doc soon, as this one armed thing is getting old. It has really slowed me down. Creative wise, I have now gotten 6 blocks done for the "year of the wiener" quilt. I am hoping to start on "March" this week. I have knit one pair of footies for Amanda, a hat for Nicholas, and a hat for myself. I have gotten four seems done on my striped fabric for my mentor, Shari. It takes forever to get anything done with just one arm. I can also say that my wonderful friends/family (I have decided we have all adopted each other) over at stitchmap are working on a very dear and wonderful surprise to help someone dear to me. I can't say a whole lot more, as it amazes me who stops by and reads my blog, and I want to keep secrets, well secret, ya know? I have somehow lost my camera, but as soon as I find it (hopefully this week) I will get some pics of stuff posted.
