Yeah! I'm Able to Stitch Again!

This has been a very LONG three months.  I had major rotator cuff surgery the end of February and was in a heavy-duty sling for two months-couldn't even sleep in the bed!  I had to wear the sling 24 hours a day (except during showers) so I wasn't able to do any stitching whatsoever or much of anything else either.   Hubby was a trooper and helped in so many ways-I am so lucky to have him in my life.  Cross stitching is my major stress reliever; and even though Idon't really have a lot of stress in my life at the moment, I have missed stitching and sewing very much.

I started stitching again the end of April and have finished a few pieces for charity.   All of these squares stitched for World of Charity Stitching will be incorporated in quilts that will be donated to a senior citizen in a care facility or a child in a domestic violence shelter.

I also stitched a piece for Love Quilts, an Alphabet heart stitched in variegated purple. I enjoyed stitching this piece, even though it was a bit more challenging than my usual smallish squares.
