Another SAL update.

If you read my last post you are aware I was not feeling well for the last half of the month. I still am not 100% but have found out what my problem is. I was diagnose with Spinal Stenosis. That would explain the pain, numbness and weakness of my left arm. Surgery is my only option. Schuduled for Spinal sugery next week. I don't know if I would be able to stitch during 3 to 6 month recovery time. Will be using a neck brace. I did try my hardest to catch up on my SALs. Her is what I was able to complete.

I don't know why but I entered a Stitching Contest SAL (It needs to be completed by November) I may not win but it is a beautiful stitch from Stickidean von der Wiehenburg. I am using DMC variation #4030 and stitching on 25 count evenweave

This is the begining

April's SAL update is a little late

Sorry my SAL update for this month is a little late but I have been very busy and not feeling well.

Don't know if mentioned I have Lupus. Most of my days are good but there are times when my body gives in and calls for a break. I have been down and out the last few weeks. Had massive headaches and vomiting for four days and when that was over the left side of my arm was in pain/numb. As of today my arm is still achy/numb but not as much. Will be seeing the doctor tomorrow again.

Hope you understand now when I inform you not all my SALs got stitched. The following are the SALs I did finish before my Lupus Fl aired.

OakHaven Design Month SAL

Kaliedoscope Snow Checkers SAL

Many Year Sampler SAL. Part Six. Half way done.

That is all I have on updates. Pray my arm gets better and I can get back into my stitching routine. See you next month.
