July 1 updated blog

Happy 4th of July to all US friends. I am now into the second week of wearing a cast on my foot, only two to go. What an exprience. I have gone back to work with the aid of a walker as I can not put weight on the foot yet, only the heel. I have stitched some at night on my WIPs. Here is my progress:
 This the ornament I stitched for the May-July ornament exchange that I am a part of. It is from the 2011 ornament issue of JCS, It is Winter Song by Elizabeth Gorski of Primrose Needleworks.
I have now started page 9 of 16 of The Alphebet Samplings Books-Withe My Needle.
 This is the Snowman and Friends Christmas Stocking-Gold Collection Kit. Stitching it for a friend's son. Working overtime on it as I need to finish it by Thanksgiving.
 Texas-Sue Hillis-gift to my grandson
 This is for my granddaughter- Lily Nora Corbet. I have started over as I got of on my stitching and didn't want to frog. Now doing it on 28 ct ant. white Jobelan
 The Halloween House-U. Michaels. SAL with Linda at http://stitchingwithmyfurbabies and others
 A few more stitches done on my RED Birds. JCS issue nov/dec 2011.
 My granddaughter dressed up my cast with our favorite college here in Texs.
Hopefully, the cast comes off July 16th.
Happy stitching and whatever life throws your way.

so much stitching Joyce, the snowman and friends stocking is my favourite, it's going to look amazing when it's done. Good luck for your cast coming off x

Lovely stitching as usual. That cast does not look very comfortable. I hope you get to take it off soon

Great progress on your WIPs. You are definitely styling with the cast.

Beautiful stitching!

I can't say that I like your cast. ;-) (One DS graduated from UT and another DS attends there now.)

Gorgeous progress Joyce. I hope you continue to recover well from your surgery. I saw your Stash for Sale on the Never Enough Stash blog. I sent you a message through the Friendly Stitcher's group because I couldn't find your e-mail anywhere. I hope those charts haven't been snatched yet. I'm interested in 10 of them!
