Clumsy, that's me.

I took a nose dive yesterday. Stepped funny off the sidewalk and almost face planted. Nothing is broken... just peeled a layer off of my knee and mutilated the palms of my hands.... I still have gravel in them because I couldn't tolerate the idea of peeling them any more than they already are in order to get the crud out... it can just stay there for now. Thankfully, the Boy carefully obeyed my instructions to patch me up while I tried not to faint, or pee my pants for that matter, and my Girl held back my hair.  Excuse my language, but showering was a total b!@%h this morning.

I did manage to stitch Saturday... worked on my Guardian Angel. She's coming along.

I also remembered that I never showed you the ornaments to my Christmas Calendar. They're too cute! I still have to finish putting the calendar it self together. I can't decide if I want to frame it or quilt a backing to it. Decisions, decisions.

Well... I hope all of you lovely people are having a fantastic day! 


  1. beautiful stitching, hope you feel better soon

  2. Amazing you were able to stitch. Glad your kids were helpful. Hope you heal quickly.

  3. Thank you, Trisha... my hands are doing a little better.

  4. Ouchy and yes some expletives are in order when showering. I did the same thing years ago but it was on our own sidewalk. I have a lovely scare on my knee to remind me. Glad that the little mishap has not stopped you from stitching. Your Guardian Angel is coming along quite well.

    1. Thank you, Toni! I had buckets full of expletives!

  5. Lamento tu caida. Yo soy experta en eso, lol.
    Me gustaron mucho tus bordados, yo solia bordar punto cruz, pero ya no lo hago por motivos de salud. Te invito a conocer mi blog.
