Bed

Over the years we have had had various cat and dog beds.  One kitty who shall remain nameless would sometimes find herself in the position where she could not walk by one of said beds without marking it as her territory.

With that said, we pick up the dog beds each night and get them out each night when are having down time.  During the new bed fiasco there has been some jostling as I may have mentioned with Coco kicking Max out of bed.  However this time Sophie even got in on the action and booted them all out.

There has been spinning and knitting.  I decided to just get another ball of the Crocus to finish up the hat.  I also enrolled in two embroidery classes.

I’m already taking this one with the Cyberstitchers, but I also found out that this one is retiring, so I must do this one.  Finally, I found out that this one was being offered as well this winter and is the companion to the one I’m doing with Cyberstitchers, so what the heck.  I figure if I stitch a couple of nights a week, it will give my wrist a break, which has been really sore lately, and I’ll be able to get them done – hopefully in time for spring.

My poor wrists have to last and the left one seems to get the brunt of the punishment, even my spinning style which is left-hand woolen or semi-woolen, if I’m doing top, seems to aggravate it when it’s aggravated.  So this is why I took up embroidery and now I’m ready to do some more serious stitching.

  • In Sophie’s defense, that does look like a Sophie-sized bed. 😉

    For the wrist- don’t forget that Topricin. It’s been *very* helpful. Trying to crank through this chemo shawl I’ve been using it quite a bit. If you look online you can find the stores near you that carry it.

  • I am so glad you are enjoying the benefits of CyberStitchers. I tend to take to many group correspondence courses and my completion rate has gone down over the last few years.

  • Clever girl that Sophie. Beautiful embroidery! I love that teeny spider with the delicate web. Hope the wrists rest and are less painful.

  • Clever doggie, that Sophie is. Beautiful embroidery, especially the teeny spider with its delicate web. Hope the wrists rest and are less painful.
