I lost a few days there over Easter.
I ate something that made me really ill, probably pepper or some spice that I am allergic to. Plus I have been grappling with a bad cough that I have had since November, no one can tell me what that is, but the drugs given to me by the Doctor have caused internal bleeding, so now they are in the bin. Then he had reduced my thyroid medication and it is too low and I didn't get my Vit B12 shot, so I have pernicious anemia again. But, I am still able to walk and I bought some B12 vitamins to get me through until I can see the Doctor again. They are like a magic potion. Take one and I switch on again, just like a robot.
The other thing the lack of thyroxine has on the body is that your brain slows down. I should have realised what was happening because I was stitching that first block from Love and Hugs from Australia stitch-a-long, but was so slow. It has taken me 4 days to do what I could normally complete in a morning and I should have put a backing piece on it to give the fabric some weight.
Thought of that later. I think I will just add the backing when I assemble to blocks.
The other thing I thought of, after I had started, was that I needed to make a 'halo' so that I could keep the piece in my hoop and return to it. Now that the halo is constructed I can reuse it for each embroidery as they are all the same size.
So one down 15 to go.
