It has been a real pleasure to stitch Deborah Cockin's sampler! I'm in the last 3 medallions of the "frame".
She has been a very good companion of these times when I still have to endure a lot of pains in my bones... still due to the operation. On the one hand, we have had a rainy (humid) Autumn and Winter and now also a long rainy Spring (very unusual for us), which is not good for the bones. On the other hand the pains remain, because my sternum closed with a difference of about 50mm apart from top to bottom. It affected the position of the bones in my shoulders and cervical.
Thank you so much for asking how I have been. Besides those bone pains, tomorrow I'm going to Lisbon to have an exam done, which takes around 5/6 hours to be done, so that it is assessed the state of all my coronaries, as the Cardiologist fears I may have another blockage! Let's see and hope for the best.
I'm sure that like for me, cross stitching is very therapeutic for many of you: it takes our mind away from pains and worries. Even more, when we are engrossed in a piece that is a pleasure to stitch and we love.
Have a very good week full of good things.
