I decided that I wanted to work on something a little different so this weekend I picked the fabric and pulled the threads for this design and actually got it all stitched on Saturday which made me very happy. Yes it was a nice quick piece to do and it measures 6 x 4 so now to just get a frame and it will be finished. While I was stitching this piece I was thinking about how I could stitch it again so it might be stitched again but with some different colours but I will wait for a while and see what I feel like.

I have only worked on this design for two days this month so I am thinking that I am going to need to try and focus on it for a couple of days if I want to get it caught up so I will see what I do this week. If I don't get it caught up before the end of the month that is fine because I will focus on it next week and see how it goes.

I was extremely happy to see this shawl finished as it just kept reminding me about a hand issue that I have been dealing with for some time. Yes, I have had to deal with severe tendonitis in my left hand for the last few months and that is one of the reasons why my actual crafting has been down. It took a couple of specialist appointments to figure out what it was because of course, I ended up having it in the pinkie finger side of my hand. I am a lefty so it meant a lot of things got impacted and crafting was only one of the things. My work took longer for me to do each day so that meant that by the time I was finished doing what needed to do I was dealing with pain and crafting just didn't happen. In the last two weeks, I have had a cortisone shot in the area and am happy to say that the pain is a lot less and I am getting back to doing everything at a normal speed again. I asked the second specialist what could have caused the problem and her answer was it just happened. I had thought it might be due to the typing or other things that I do and she let me know that it wasn't repetitive stress that caused the problem it was just something that happened.
It is now time for me to get some work done today as it is getting close to the end of the month and there are things that need to get finished up. I hope to find some crafting time this week but will have to see how things go as this is a busy week for me. Hope everyone has a great week and you find time to do some of the things that you love doing.
