I have noticed that any activities that require me to reach out, up, and forward cause my arm to really hurt (i.e. computer use if the keyboard is higher than lap level, stitching at the lapstand, looking through clothing racks, and driving). Last night, I was watching TV and I felt and saw the muscle in my upper arm spasming. The BF said he could see it spasming all the way down to my elbow.
The BF and I planted my vegetable garden yesterday. It was his idea to put the fencing up to keep the critters from eating the seedlings like they did last year. (In the background you can see my compost bin). Hopefully, the garden will do better this year than it did last year.
I bought flowers for my planters, but this is as far as I got on putting them in the planters, lol.
(From car trunk to garage floor)
I cannot believe how many blossoms are on my double knockout rose bush this year!
(Just one of the blooms)
I've really been trying to rest my arm, but it's been hard when I'm surrounded by stitchy goodness, lol. The only stitching I did all week was finish the Partridge ornament.
Partridge was a Stitch-N-Frame ornament kit from Needlemagic Inc. I used the threads from the kit and swapped out the fabric for a piece of hand-dyed 22ct aida leftover from a project I did last year. Here's what the original ornament was supposed to look like:
Partridge 3387 Stitch-N-Frame Ornament
Designer: Needlemagic Inc
Fabric: 22ct Hand-dyed Hardanger
Embellishments: Pearl beading, ribbon, buttons
