Needle Arm


I built the deck behind our house. I designed, dug and planted the pond in our back yard. I built four raised beds in our backyard. I stacked blocks for another raised bed in the side yard outside my office window. I built two, 4' x 9' latticed trellis' and have planted and replanted hundreds of plants over the last thirty-five years. And never have I had a muscle as sore as the teeny little one I've pulled in the last two days from cross-stitching. And I've never strained a joint as I have apparently strained my wrist doing the same.

We are in hysterics imagining what I will tell the physical therapist when she wants to know how I injured myself.

I'm just going to take an ibuprophen and hope it goes away without medical attention.

I don't want to be a laughing stock.

Who will think a little tiny fairy could give you such a pain? lol

You've got me wondering if the pain in my wrist is more related to stitching than carrying around toddlers!

Such a price for you to pay for your cute fairy.

Your fairies are so lovely, thanks for visiting my site and the nice comments! I'm so glad you were able to get a copy of the book, I could just look at the pic of that quilt for hours. I'm still blown away by the detail! Good luck with your muscle! Ouch.
