Not Exactly Back in the Saddle …
But at least I’m in the Tack Room, so to speak! After a packed summer spent hunkered over my computer or squeezed into my studio doing coursework, I electrified my sciatic nerve by chasing the inevitable bugs that come with the beginning of fall. I’m an absolute maniac if there’s a bug in the house … truly a crazy person. I leap over things and run myself ragged until the bug is caught. The guys think it’s kind of funny, but for me it’s a true obsession. And after the offending insect is caught, I have to clean the spots where I saw him land. I was standing on the sofa in the den with the electric tennis racquet in my hand when my left sciatic notch cramped up and I had to give up the chase. Thanks to DHs neurological treatments, this bout has been milder than my past one, but I still haven’t been doing much for the past two weeks. My memories of having wanted to gnaw my leg off have kept me from pushing the envelope. To me, no pain is good pain!
Today I was finally able to sit at the computer for an hour and rumage through my designs. It feels great to be productive again. This design is a frame for a sampler to be hung in our guest room. I’m sharing it for your personal stitching pleasure only, as it’s under my copyright. Happy Stitching!
