The stitchy angels took pity on me today, and I somehow managed to spend my entire chair time stitching! Progress!
Please excuse the spaghettis and knots...those are away knots and tails brought forward since I have to do everything one handed in the chair and cannot flip my work.

I am particularly happy about this turn of events, because I did NOT want to go today. I mean...I really did not want to go sit in that chair. At all. Not one bit. Zippo. Zilch. Period.  I contemplated calling off and considering it a mental health day, but I adulted, got in the damn shower, and went like a big girl.

My reward was being able to just put my headphones and take up needle and thread and enjoy myself thoroughly.



  1. So happy you were able to stitch through the ordeal today.

  2. Yaaaay you for adulting. I still have to play those mental games/battles with myself and it feels so good to 'win' and be an adult.

  3. Coni, I am glad you went and the day turned out OK after all. I understand this is a none to pleasant experience 3 days a week, but it is necessary for you, my dear. Please continue to do all the right things so can get that transplant when it becomes available. Hugs!

  4. Great news, Coni!! I wouldn’t want to sit in that chair either, but stitching with headphones on for a few hours sounds quite relaxing, and you really made progress on your piece. Looks great.

  5. So glad you had a productive day. I just wanted to let you know that my needle minders were received this week. They were immediately put on WIPS. Every time I look at them they make me smile and I say a little prayer for you.
