This is not my bunny ready for backstitch, but more stash that I wanted to get in. The lovely hardback book of flowers, the wide, bordered ribbon at the top of pic, and the 3 cards of hand-dyed floss is my last Stash of the Month from Silkweaver, which, in their big moving and changing plans, they have done away with. I'm not very happy with the changes resulting from their move and any of their options left to me (have done many of them already), so I guess I'll just drop out and try an auto shipment at an ONS. Next to the flower book is a Just Nan Whimzi Seasonals - "Snow Faces," and the last two on the right are the 1st two "Dear Diary" releases by Little House Needleworks, and I dearly love them! I have plans very soon for these and have my own ideas.
I broke my leg Feb. 15, and for the first two weeks, everyone was very good about helping keeping my housework up. But the burden of taking care of their own families and making sure I had meals and my mail and newspaper brought in and coffee made in the morning with my breakfast made, garbage taken out for collection, container brought back into garage, etc. got to be too much to keep up the regular housework. After my nice long 12-hour-sleep last night, I felt like doing what needed to be done most. I paced myself by doing about 15 minutes of work, then sitting down to stitch with my leg up in my recliner. At the time of my accident, I had my house decorated for winter, so I walked around my house, gathering up the winter decor and putting it in bags to have DH take it back to the basement shelves. I also got my wood floors, kitchen, and bathroom floors cleaned, and the worst of the worst, all 3 of our toilets and the shower in our bath (the other two are rarely used). These things sparkle once again, and I don't gag when the cats get their heads in the toilets, but it was all I could handle for one day. I'll finish the rest of the 3 baths tomorrow, but the big part is over. I may dust and vacuum one or two of our most-used rooms, but I'll see what tomorrow holds and how my leg is. I got by very well today, and it was gratifying to get the worst cleaning and even some stitching done, as I rested my leg. It's a wonderful feeling to get my normal life back and not be at someone else's mercy.
