The colors are gorgeous!
This is Downton Abbey: the Family sampler I'm designing and stitching the model.
A little progress made yesterday.
The girls' names started.
The border is going to be very pretty in Deep Sea blue.
And in the knitting department:
Working on another dishcloth as I can. This is looser and is not 100% cotton but a blend. The yarn lady said it makes a nice dishcloth too. This was a bit more expensive and I really like the Peaches and cream for 1.99/ skein better.
But this is Italian blend and is really going to be a good cloth.
I'm thinking I will make this one larger.
It really stiches up easy and faster which is good because I found out my MRI showed a partial to full tear in a tendon in the top of my hand that controls the extensor of my fingers.
I have it wrapped tightly until I can see an Ortho doc.
I think keeping it still or splinting it for 6 weeks will be NOT a good thing for me as this is my right hand.
All of this from trying to open a really locked spaghetti sauce jar!
As long as I'm not lifting anything more than a salad plate I'm no in too much pain.
I have no grip to hold a dinner plate or pot.
Weirdly cross stitching doesn't hurt as bad as the knitting, so I limit my time.
We'll see what the Ortho says.
Till later no twisting the hands,
