Here's an update on my stitching progress on
the Polly Daggett sampler:
I'm not pleased with the color of the linen. But for my first attempt at this in over 20 years I'll have to
This picture has all of the floss colors that I haven't stitched yet. They don't appear in the sampler until
the middle and the end. I'm sick of black!
I'm hoping to finish the alphabet today and start
on the pine trees. There will be a dividing band of
a rust color, her name in black (again) and then
the pretty colors. Lots of teal and light blue, cream
The color for the border looks nothing like the
original border. I'm supposing the true colors are
on the back of the sampler and what I'm stitching
is what they must have looked like before fading and aging.
So we have some snow and it's pretty and we didn't get too much so I'm happy. I'm having a hard time
keeping the house warm today. It's really cold
outside today. Just have to turn the heat up more.
I'm sorry to say that the spinal injection did not
help me. I think it actually made my pain worse in that I have no relief as opposed to before when I could have some pain-free time with ice packs and
medicine. Mr. Glen Oaks got relief for his problem
(one of them) and I'm happy for that. Thank good-
ness his leg pain is gone. His back is still very bad
and they are talking about doing 14 levels of spinal
injections of corticosteroids. Oh, boy - not me. I'd
be too afraid. I'm supposed to have another round or two of these injections and if they don't work I
don't know where I go from there. Probably crazy.
Stay warm and safe today.
