Last week I had surgery to remove my gallbladder. I had 5 major gallbladder attacks since July and have been pretty miserable since. I wasn’t diagnosed with gallstones until February and in March I made the decision to have it removed robotically. A week later and I am feeling pretty good. I did have a minor setback, but today I am feeling better. I am still on light activity for 2 more weeks and still no lifting over 8 pounds for 2 weeks, but I think that the worst is behind me. I couldn’t stitch on my projects that are on a scroll frame so I spent some time off and on working on and finishing this little project:
It’s Fairy Dust by Nimue and I must say that I am not very fond of this pattern. The backstitching was crazy! It went through stitches, and on the sides of stitches, not in any holes. I ended up backstitching how I wanted. And for some reason the 1/2 stitches in the wings really kept throwing me off. I had to rip them out twice. I am blaming the pain meds 😉 Hubby loves it and that is all that matters since I was stitching it for him. I don’t think I will ever do another Nimue design, even though I have see some cute ones. Not a relaxing stitch for me.
Hubby bought me 3 Lego sets to put together while recovering. The first one was a small Lego Friends Bunny house. Sitting for very long was not an option, so this set was perfect. The next set was a medium sized set; another Friends set. Mira’s Roadster. Really cute girl car.
And the last set was a larger set and it took me 3 nights to put together. Disney’s Ariel’s Underwater Palace. LOVE it!
Such a cute set and there are 2 mermaids included! So thanks to my wonderful hubby, who took great care of me and provided me with fun things to take my mind off of my discomfort.
