I honestly don't know what possessed me to do so, but on the way out to the car I grabbed my stitchy bag and tucked it next to my heiney blanket.
(I made a little throw with baby yarn on a knitting loom..you know...the cream colored one that Stewey loved to cuddle in...because my heiney gets sore from sitting in the D-chair.)
Anywhoose...I told my tech that I would behave myself, but I was going to try to stitch because stitching is my life and I am dying a slow death not being able to do it in the D-chair, and she said "You go, girl. Don't worry 'bout 'nuthin. We'll figure it out for you.")
Apparently, because I have been such a good patient thus far and not complained about my chair, have arrived on time, and have not demanded a lot of attention, the D-gods took pity on me and allowed me to experiment.
I was very very very careful and managed to get situated in such a way that the treatment was not affected at all. My pressures in both needles remained perfect, my lines stayed quiet, and I stayed still during blood pressure measurement.
It was slow going, to be sure, but the moment the needle and thread hit my hand I went into the zone and didn't come out until it was time to come home.
Spinster Freakin' Bliss.
I'm not going to get discouraged if I can't do it every time...I think that the needle placement and the tech's willingness to let me bend my arm a bit will vary, and sometimes I'm just not going to feel well enough to do so. But on days that I can...I'm gonna be a stitching fool!
Here's my progress...meagre, to be sure, but progress!
And here's the whole piece so far...'scuse the toes!
The sun is shining and the birds are tweeting sweetly today, Dearies! We're heading over to campus for the sporting things...a lacrosse game and then a baseball game...and then it's home to watch the Sixers and the Kentucky Derby! I hope that your very own Saturday is a win win win! Come tell me all about it!
