December is here!

December is here and already speeding along! Hubby and I decorated our house on Sunday, and everything looks very festive and cheery. I love decorating for Christmas. It makes me wish I had done more Xmas stitching!

Still no PL fabric in the mail for me....although I have been diligently checking every day! That is when I can get my mail box open. Winter seems to think its time to arrive and we have been hit with ice storms and snow....brrrr! It seems awfully early to look outside and see so much white, and have to bundle up with boots, scarf, gloves and hat to go out! Of course Nick is loving it as that means money to be made shovelling snow from driveways for him and of course snowboarding season has opened.

Not much stitching to show from me except a Prairie Schooler piece I have been working on a piece of Fiddler's cloth. Its from Christmas Samplers Book 63 and I'm hoping to be able to stitch it before Christmas. Stitching is slow these days as my shoulder has been troubling me a lot. I finally gave in and and saw my doctor and have started seeing a physiotherapist for a 'frozen shoulder'. I'm sure its from work, nah, couldn't be from stitching or quilting at all! But unfortunately I can't stop working .... :-(

Lovely wip, Wendy! I'm sorry about that frozen shoulder. I'm the same as you: pain strikes but it definitely cannot be due to stitching or quilting (ooooh, gorgeous quilt!!!).
Take care,
Lili

Wendy, I hope your shoulder feels better soon!

Love the cookie jars!

I do hope your PL fabric arrives soon - we need all the PL stitchers we can get, and also I was really loving your colour combination so I'm keen to see more. Fingers crossed your postie arrives soon (I remember regularly and roundly cursing Canada Post in my youth, I see it hasn't gotten any better ;)

I'm so excited about Christmas - can't believe it's already December!?! I've done plenty of Christmas stitching this year, although not much for myself LOL!


Hope your shoulder improves very soon.

I was just thinking today how much I dislike putting on boots every time I have to go out! I'm starting to decorate a bit at a time. I have all my snowmen out now.
Hope your shoulder is pain free soon. You definitely don't want it to cut in on your stitching time!

Vonna said...

Oh, a frozen shoulder...that sounds terrible! Nope, I think it'd be from work too...nasty work... LOL!

I hope the physical therapy helps your shoulder, I wouldn't want your stitching to suffer. Hopefully the PL fabric shows up soon.

Michele said...

Your PS is looking great! I love that pattern :)

My sympathies about your shoulder .. I have a bad left shoulder (impingment) and have physical therapy and massage therapy done for it .. not fun at all .. but it does help! Good luck :)

Oh no! Hope your shoulder gets better soon, it definately sounds work-related, LOL!!!

It always seems like the mail takes longer when I'm waiting for something to arrive! Hope your fabric gets there soon, but LOVE that PS wip!!!

I LOVE that PS design. I will keep my fingers crossed that you will be able to stitch it before Christmas! This year, right?

I hope that shoulder clears up soon so you can stitch your heart out. That PS is lovely and it would be nice for Christmas (this year?)

Cute little Snowman and Santa glad you are enjoying the upcoming holidays. The PWS Sampler looks good, sorry about the shoulder. Mine was helped by getting a neck support pillow, go figure. Happy Stitching and Holidays

Take care of that shoulder...A break from work yes from stitching no....I'm sure it's theraputic.
You will have to work on PL for days to catch up. I'm jealous I love stitching on it and 6 days in a row would be fun.!
PS is a great piece that you are doing! Very pretty.

Lelia said...

Take care of that shoulder. Yes, December is here ... and your PS WIP is awesome. Hope you get it all stitched up in time : )

Deborah/LavenderRose said...

Dear Wendy, I'm very concerned about your frozen shoulder! We need to talk! Please don't over-do this holiday season, it's not worth it. I'm sure your stitching had nothing to do with it, but carrying or lifting heavy things might! Sending many prayers and wishes for healing your way, Deb
