Why I Am Not Stitching!

Well, I am stitching but very sloooowly because I have shingles.  Where do I have them?  Under my right shoulder so with the pain of the condition you have the pain tingling and numbness.  Since it is my right shoulder, The pain and numbness is down my right arm.  I can stitch a little at a time. I have been stitching on the mystery stitch but not enough to post.  Maybe tomorrow.  Shingles, the symptoms are BAD!!! I have had pain and numbness  in my arm to my hand for the past week and the rash is still here but scabbed over.  Everyone please get a shot even if you have not had the chicken pox because I never had them.  They state in the ad if you have had chicken pox get the shot but I am one with shingles and never had the virus!

Ok news today is.....very hot and humid while I delivered mail today but it was an easy day today.  So happy I am off from now until Thursday after the Holiday!
Have a great Holiday

My daughter Ashli just got her first job at Stoop & Shop.  She is a deli clerk.  Today is her second training day.  She says she likes it.  I think I am going to stitch on Fred today outside because it is a beautiful sunny day.  It is supposed to be in the 80's today.  Perfect weather for stitching!

Updates on Gui and My Stitching!

Gui is home and recovering.  He needs antibiotic ointment to be put in 5 puncture wounds to his back along with oral drops along with peroxide baths each day.  He is not too happy.  He is in lock down for a month.  No outside what so ever.  The vet says he was attacked either by a very large dog or a coyote.  No sure if I will ever let him out again without a restraint of some form and me being outside with him.
I do have a little update on my Black Wolf I am stitching.  Hope you can see a little difference from the last time lol
last time

this week
I have 250 stitches in Black Wolf now I know I am so slow but with work and nursing Gui not alot of time to stitch
Happy Stitching everyone!

Prayers For My Gui!!

My furbaby Gui was attacked yesterday and has bite marks and an abscess on his back.  I brought him to the vet today and they didn't let me take him home : (  He needs treatment for the abscess which will take a day to drain.  Then massive doses of antibiotics. He is such an awesome baby!  I trapped him as a feral (wild stray)but has become a little pussy LOL!  I love him so much!!!  Here is a pic I have of him.  As far as stitching, Between work and now this I have nothing to show.  I have stitched on Black Wolf but not enough to show progress.

Stitched Tonight on Black Wolf by Kustom Krafts

Today was a beautiful day here in Smithfield, RI! Sunny in the 60's. Anyone been stitching? I pulled out Black Wolf by Kustom Krafts and stitched a little after work. Lots of Blacks and Grays so I definitely will be rotating this one often since it is a beautiful pattern but for me quite boring to stitch. I love colorful patterns and this is not one of them. Here is a photo of the pattern and a start of my stitching.

I am stitching this on28 ct. Joblin Dove Gray Linen over two threads. I have put in 166 stitches so far so not alot to show quite yet.
Here is my progress as of today.

Well, I will leave you a pic of my many kitties that have found a warm safe home here with us. Here is Amber caught playing with our flowers. Happy Stitching Everyone!
