Stitches and Staples
Julie at Mixed Media sent me this wonderful photograph of Fuji san. I am thinking about how I can represent it in my current project, maybe with a few crystals. Watch this space.
I went back to the hospital on Monday and had my bandages removed from my foot. I was wondering how my surgeon's stitching would compare with my own but he used staples, fourteen of them. The results looks good though. I now have a pink plaster on for a further four weeks. I hope I shall get a lot of stitching done in that time. It has been more difficult than I expected to concentrate following my operation. On more than one occasion I stitched my Mount Fuji to my skirt and I have done quite a lot of unpicking when I've looked at my stitching and thought, "Did I really do that?" DH is going to layer my boro cloth for me today so I'll be able to work on that as well. I also have two Global Piecers birthday blocks to make. They are going to be hand stitched which I shall enjoy but it will take a lot more time than chain piecing!
