Christmas Sled Stocking #27

Only got a little stitching time last night as we had dinner at my parent's place and got home late.
Happy Stitching,

Christmas Sled Stocking #26

One side of the name banner done... I would have loved to get the other side done as well, but my shoulder didn't agree.
Happy Stitching,

Christmas Sled Stocking #24


The name banner is getting there, slowly, slowly... I've found if I tuck my right elbow in and barley move my shoulder, it doesn't hurt as much, but it does make for slower stitching. I'm calling the surgeon today so hopefully I can get in to see them asap.
UPDATE - I can't get in until 18th July which is a bit of a bummer! That is the earliest availability. I hope that means he is good at what he does so he is in high demand! Hopefully there will be a cancellation well before then so I can go in earlier.

Thanks for your kind thoughts and prayers re:  my shoulder issues - they are much appreciated!
Happy Stitching,

Shoulder Update

Thanks to everyone for their support and well-wishes over the past months with my shoulder pain issues. I now have an answer to what is causing the pain - a bone spur and a 50-70% tear of a tendon (plus some other stuff but I don't understand what)! Now I'm off to the shoulder surgeon to get it fixed up. Hopefully it won't take too long to get in to see them.
Still no reason why - I don't recall a specific incident that sparked the pain, and apparently, often these things are through wear and tear. It seems for me, the minute I turned 40, everything has fallen apart! I'm hoping for a quick and full recovery process so I can get back into stitching more (and my other jobs as well I suppose)...

Have a wonderful weekend!
Happy Stitching,
Kerrie

Christmas Sled Stocking #22

After I thought I'd finished for the night and took this photo, I decided to complete the darker blue all the way across to the edge so I've actually done a little more than this photo shows. Now I can start on the name banner, and because this isn't for a baby yet to be born (it's for the parent of a baby's one I did last year), I can stitch the name right in place.
Happy Stitching,
Kerrie
