It’s been nearly one week since I stepped foot off of my front porch. That event happened last Friday morning, as I hobbled down the steps and to the passenger seat of the car to be escorted by my lovely husband to none other than the urgent care center. I was truly miserable. I cringe to think of the character I’d be if I were born in an earlier century than this– unfortunately it would be the wide-eyed one who is constantly falling victim to fainting spells (from the heat, of course) and who is often referred to as ailing or indisposed. Lucky for me, I was not born in the 1800’s and the advances of modern medicine have truly been a blessing in my life.
Being on bed rest this week has allowed me to practice my crocheting (which I am absolutely dreadful at) and also to practice my embroidery stitches using the set that Julee sent to me this Christmas. I finished this tea towel which I used this morning. (While I drank my favorite tea from my favorite tea cup and daydreamed about all of the wonderful embroidered things I could make for our home!) I’ve read snippets about printing out designs from the computer on wax paper and then using an iron to transfer the pattern– does anyone know if this actually works?
