I still feel a little like this, but the ideas are starting to come back into my head and translate onto the blog.
I'd been busy knitting sweaters and toys when suddenly last month the tendonitis in my right hand started hurting. A lot. I was feeling the pain in the palm and radiating up my middle finger. It got so painful that I couldn't even lift my coffee mug with my right hand. I knew it was time to stop knitting and let my hand rest, but I can't seem to sit without my hands being busy, so I tried some cross stitching. Fortunately, that didn't hurt and so I've been stitching some holiday designs.
I did these little fellows just because I thought they were cute. They were also fun to stitch.
Next I wanted to do a Santa design, but there are so many cute ones to choose from, so this is what I chose.
This one reminded me of my trip to Russia.
One of my favorite designers for Santas is 'Mosey And Me'. I've made a couple of their designs before but this was probably the most labor intensive one so far. I ike them because they're not the pretty Santa that we're used to seeing, but they're kind of schmucky old men who look down and out, but kind.
I also want to test my hand with some knitting so I think Morgan might appreciate a new sweater. With arthritis in her legs, it might help keep the old joints warm. Wish me luck.
