More Black Belt Stitching Wizard Stuff

Rain Soaked Visitor

We had some local storms this evening and after the heavy rains stopped and I started to open the windows back up... I spotted this rain soaked visitor in my back yard. A fox! Isn't he adorable!

This evening, I had to go into Taekwon-Do briefly, all the black belts were having pictures taken for the website. Don't worry, I'll let you know when they're up. I'm hoping the pictures turn out better this time then the old ones. I'm currently off of TKD until September. About four weeks ago while I was teaching during demonstrating a move I felt something in the bottom of my foot go pop... and instant pain. I finally got into my sports medicine doctor (I did go to the clinic the next day but she didn't really tell me much besides want to send me for a useless x-ray which wouldn't show up soft tissue damage) this week. It turns out I have a partially torn plantar fascitis. So next week I'll be starting physiotherapy... and I can only cycle or swim for exercise.

Anyhow the point of me saying this is that when I left I was just so excited to get home and stitch!!! I haven't felt this way in ages! I do love to stitch, yes but I was just excited and giddy to get home. Have you ever felt this way?

For tonight's stitching pic I'm not going to show you progress on Noah's Sub. Which I did work on tonight by the way. For a change I'm going to share my travel project with you, Michael Powell's Mini Cottages 5. Its not really much at the moment and well, the white on white doesn't really show up at the moment.

Oh and thanks to those of you who visited my friend's blogs. I know Claire was just so excited to receive all your comments and found it really encouraging. When we last talked (online that is) she was off to get the digital camera and take pictures for you!

I hope your recovery is a fast and smooth one - and that you get lots of stitching time in! Your travel project shows great promise - I'd be scared to count that far between stitches, as I'd be sure to mess up.

(((Dani))) I hope your foot heals smoothly. I love your fox photo, and I can't wait to see the progess on your Michael Powell. I have two of his in my to be started SOON pile. : )

The fox is adorable! I love Michael Powell, and can't wait to watch this one progress. Hope your foot heals up quickly and well!

That wee fox is just cute as can be! (and very wet!)

I hope your foot gets better soon...that is terrible to have that sort of pain when you are trying to walk...believe me I know the feeling....

I do at times feel giddy to stitch. In fact there has been times when I want to do it so much I get out of bed in the middle of the night because I can't sleep for thinking about my project. A little sick I am.... :) LOL!

Dani ((hugs)) I do hope your foot gets better soon!

The fox is so cute! I would have rather had that visitor than the opossum that was in my tree next to the back porch last night.

Ouch sounds painful! Hope it gets better soon. ergh, foxes scare me. I think its a childhood thing of them trying to get my rabbits!! Oh yes familiar with the excited and giddy feelings! Sad isn't it LOL

Ouch, I hope you get better quick, at least you can stitch LOL! Your Michael Powell houses are off to a good start, those are cool charts, can’ t wait to see it progress. That fox is adorable! I love foxes, they can be hard to see sometimes, lucky you :D

Lynn said...

What a cool picture! I love foxes but have never been close enough to get a good picture. How lucky you are. Hope your foot is feeling better and the physio helps. Thank you so much for the plug about my blog! I'm meeting a lot of very friendly stitchers. Enjoy your stitching time while you're off your feet!

Dani! I completely understand about the giddy feeling. When I left choir because work got too full, I got that feeling every Wednesday night! I loved coming home early! You're gonna get so much stitching done! Cute fox - new friend for Hunter? Hope your foot feels better soon.

Poor thing all shivery & cold. Great picture though.

Your foot sounds painful but thank goodness you don't need feet to stitch. MP's are such fun stitches and this will give you a great chance to enjoy the project.

Have a great weekend and hope your foot heals soon.

Cute picture of the fox, he certainly didn't look very happy about being so wet though.

Hope your foot heals quickly and doesn't cause you to much pain. However, it does sound like you'll have a little more time to stitch. It sounds like you're really into your current projects right now, so hopefully that will make your healing time pass faster.

What a great photo of the fox! Yes, it sure is cute!!

Jenna said...

Oh that fox looks so beautiful! I love foxes, but have never seen one in person, much less up close.

Ouch on the torn plantar fascia. Take good care of yourself so you don't develop a long-term problem, okay?
