2012- The year of recovery.
I have been unable to do anything remotely crafty this year. Going
from daily sewing and cross stitching to nothing was almost more world
altering than the surgery and withdrawal from xanax.
Then December arrived and I actually wanted to stitch. And my hands were good to go. One of my withdrawal symptoms was trembly hands
and they finally seem to be gone. I am so happy about that. Since all
my sewing, scrapbooking, and jewelry supplies have been boxed up in
preparation for our move home, all I had was my cross stitch basket.
And it is full of WIPs, UFOs, and kits I was buying for Christmas
presents. I wasn't quite ready to pick up the last item I was
stitching, so I picked an unopened kit.
I have stitched every night this week. I can't sit and stitch for long
because my hands cramp up and become very painful. Side effect of not
stitching? That is what I am thinking. So here's to hoping that the
more I do the more the symptoms will go away. I am hoping that
stitching actually helps me in my recovery process.
