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.


  1. Lovely finishes Peggy. Glad you're feeling better too!

  2. Peggy I didn't realize you had surgery. I am glad you are better now. Thank you again for all you do for WOCS.

  3. So glad your shoulder is healing and you are getting back into your normal routine.

  4. I didn't know you had surgery either. Ugh.. no fun at all. Well, glad to know you can stitch again. All cute pieces. Love the purple heart. I did that one in pink colors some time ago. It's such a pretty pattern.
