It's been awhile since my last fiber post. My heart has been warmed by the many personal emails I've received wishing 'the husband' well with his cervical spine surgery and the long recovery ahead. I'll skip over the drama and simply say it's been rough, but thankfully except for the tremendous pain, the other negatives/risks have been avoided. My household duties have expanded but it's nothing I can't handle.
So.....this is what was accomplished after nearly a week sitting in a hospital room. How very fortunate it was to have something to distract and occupy my mind.
Samples of hand dyed plaid wool were fun to incorporate. The hand embroidery was time consuming yet very satisfying....the perfect technique given the circumstances.
