The Finish is Near!

I am about half way through beading Tuscany Town, so no much to go! Though I have hardly been doing any for the last 2 weeks as I have had my shoulder operation and I can't stitch more than 10 minutes at a time, which I guess is better than not stitching at all!
My shoulder surgery went really well, I had an AC reconstruction done and down have 6 weeks of work with my arm in a sling and no driving, still I am getting a lot of maths study done (lucky I am left  handed, but only in writing so it doesn't help my stitching much!) Anyway here is an xray of the finished product, you can see the little metal bits top and bottom which have pulled the collarbone and shoulder blade together
So hopefully in a couple of weeks I can start running again, though I'm not sure when I will get back on my bike.

I got some stash in the mail the other day, this cheered me up!

Here is the Tuscany Town progress-

I am aiming to have this finished for the Oxford A & P show on the 30th March, so I will see how I go:)

Happy stitching!



  1. Glad to hear that your surgery went well. Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Love the new stash. I have the gingerbread house on my wish list (and someday I may actually stitch the ones in my stash. Great work on Tuscany. Reading your progress reports just reminds me that I need to bead mine as I go - at least the Delicas.

  2. Thank you Susan! I have a lot of charts in my stash, whether I actually ever stitch them is another story! But I just like looking through them from time to time

  3. I hope you heal quickly! Love the progress on Tuscany!
