My left shoulder is in unbelievable pain. Like an 8. Yeah, I used to not know what those pain numbers meant, then I had bunion surgery. I have been to the 10, and I know I'm not there yet. It's not a constant pain. It's worse when I breathe in and when I swallow hard. I have no loss of range of motion. On Monday, if I make it that long, I'll go see the former Phillies doc I work with. He's an orthopaedic surgeon, and he knows shoulders.
I didn't realize the poll would cause so much angst. A project is finished when you take the last stitch. If it has buttons and beads on the pattern, they must be added. And we're only counting, let's say, embroidery. So yes to punch needle, Theresa Layman French knot pieces, needlepoint, but no to knitting, quilting, sewing, and crochet. Just because I don't want to have to count the knitting, quilting, and sewing projects that are in the basement. As for the finished but unfinished projects--the ones that you have to make into pillows, ornaments, wall hangings, or framed pictures, we'll talk about them next week.
Of course, I am ashamed to say, I have to add the Mirabilia Christmas Fairy and the Theresa Layman mermaid to my count below. I don't, however, have to change my vote!
I went to Joann's today to pick up fabric for the Great Stocking Finishing project. Pictured here. The plaid goes with Elisabeth's stocking. The floral goes with Jillian's. Both are miniwale corduroy. I'm a little worried about the plaid, I prefer working with all over patterns. You know, because I suck at sewing...
