Crazy January Challenge - Day 12

Snow day today and tomorrow too - today I was pretty close to useless... took a half a day to unstiffen enough to lift my arms over my head.  Hoping that passes fast.

I stitched a tiny bit - blackwork works up quickly, so it looks like more than it is - I want to come back to this one soon, and be able to work on it more without pain.

You can't tell what it's going to be yet - it's a 5 x 7 project, and will be a UU flaming chalice - the saying at the top is a short bit from a popular UU hymn and says "Spirit of Life, come unto me".  This is my own design, and the finished sampler is going to a donation to the UU church I attend when I'm out in Maryland.  They hold an annual auction to help raise funds to keep the congregation funded, and I'm hoping this will be a desireable auction piece.  I'm not sure when it is this year - sometime in the spring, so I'll be coming back to this soon.

That's all I'm going to say today - my fingertips hurt!  Go away, winter.

  1. Looks good. I hope you can move better tomorrow!

    It was a snow day here and I had my friend come pick me up so we could go out to eat because we were going stir crazy in the house. I stitched some on my Love Quilt's project at her place while we watched movies and I'm working on my Hockey piece right now.
