Stitching Stuff: Week 12 of 2023

Sorry that this week's linky party is just a bit late, I'm still trying to figure out how to be on the computer and not hurt afterwards, so my timing wasn't the best this week.  So thank you for your patience.  

Thankfully my back seems to have healed, but I'm still fighting shoulder issues. So long as I limit my computer time, I don't hurt, but go over an hour or so and I'll hurt for most of the day.  The shoulder has kept me out of the sewing room this week as well, so my metrics for the week are pretty dismal.  

  • 15 minute days/week = 1/7 days
  • 15 minute days/March = 12/25 days
  • 15 minute days/2023 = 64/84
  • Success rate = 76.19%

I'm still on track with my goal to stitch at least 75% of the days in 2023, but just barely.  The only bright side is that I've had more time to play with my photography lessons.  I was able to get into the sewing room yesterday for a bit and not hurt. I'm hoping for a bit more pain free time today.  I'm really behind on blog reading and I miss seeing what everyone is up to.  I've tried different computer set ups to make things more ergonomic and that has helped but not solved the problem. So for now I'm going to ration computer time and see how that works.  

Hopefully you had a much more successful week on the stitching front than I did.

I feel you. My shoulders are a problem too. I’m taking 1000 mg of Tylenol 3 times a day, 8 hours apart. It’s not a perfect solution, but it does help. If your doctor okays it, maybe it would help you. In any case, I’m sorry you’re having to deal with this. It’s so aggravating.

I feel for you. My hubby suffers from shoulder pain. Take it easy, and don’t feel bad for being a little late. Your health is the main priority for you. I hope it improves soon.

When a body part hurts you find out just how much you use it. DH got in to see the physio this morning he has had back pain for a couple of weeks. Physio says its a pinched nerve so he has to take it easy for a bit. Which is easier said than done where he is concerned. Hope you are on the mend soon.
