Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart fail;

But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:25-26

French Knot Henry Framed

Hi friends! We are having cool days and cold nights. I got a little more done in the garden BEFORE I got the cortisone injections into both my hip bursas yesterday. CRAZY PAINFUL INJECTIONS. Worst cortisone shots I have ever had. I asked the doctor if he used a horse needle this time?!?! He said he really wanted to make sure he got in there to help me out. Unfortunately I will have increased pain for one or more days still. Then I am hoping for greatly reduced pain.

I forgot to share with you a picture of the French Knot Henry framed in the frame I finally settled for. I wanted copper, but had to settle for brass in the 5x5 size. I never found anything locally at numerous stores. I bought this frame off Amazon inexpensively.
So glad Mabel and Henry are both done in french knots and hanging together.
I am planning to give Mabel a haircut Friday. Then I will get some pictures of her too. Here is one for now. The poor girl misses Jacob. He is gone from morning til late at night four days a week. She is laying on his small drawstring backpack, school books and his nursing shoes.

Over halfway done with my school themed stitchery. I would love to make it finish #5 before the end of the MMMM SAL.

Thank you for your kind words and friendship. I am so glad you stopped by.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Hello Vickie

Lovely framed finishes, Mabel is adorable!
Sorry to hear of your pain. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis so I know about chronic pain. Hope yours settles soon.
Have a good day x

Those framed poodles look so great! Love the French knots...and by that I mean looking at them not doing them!

How sweet the French knot pups are, Vickie! I can't imagine doing that many French knots!! You must be an expert at them...

I know the pain has to get worse before it gets better--hope that time comes soon :)

Beautiful finishes--all those French knots.

Hope you are feeling better and pain free

Michelle said...

Beautiful work Vickie. I am thinking of you with your pain. I have had cortisone injections in the past and boy they are painful. Sending you many hugs xx

Margaret said...

Love Henry and Mabel together -- they look great! Poor Mabel, missing her boy too. :( I don't understand how you manage with all the pain you go through every day. I managed to hurt my shoulder on Monday and it's been agony with the pain. Constant pain is so tiring! I admire you so so much. Those cortisone shots sound horrifying. :( I hope it was worth getting them and you are painfree really soon.

cucki said...

Prayers sent your way that your pain will ease soon and that these shots will last very, very long. :) Wow...the French Knot pictures are awesome. They look perfect in those frames. Ahhh sweet little Mabel laying on those shoes, is just too adorable.
Wishing you a most lovely day sweet friend. :)

Beautiful framed finishes. It's now a couple of days on ... I hope the pain is going.

Brigitte said...

Oh Vickie, they look gorgeous in their frames. I still can't believe that you stitched them with French knots, you're my hero, lol.

Ann at Beadlework. said...

Your french knot pieces are just perfect, I take my hat off to you doing all those knots. I do hope the injections are worth it.

Beth said...

Henry and Mable (framed) are great!

Maggee said...

Those two framed pictures represent such a LOVE for your doggies! Not to mention quite an investment in time stitching them! But they are WELL worth it--so gorgeous!! Hope you are feeling better by now (terribly behind, I know!), after the painful injections... Big Hugs!

Did you do those FK's yourself? At first, I thought those were punch needle projects.

Melanie said...

God bless you getting all these cortisone shots. :(
I've only had a couple of them (in my hand) and you had to peel me off the ceiling after. It's like torture. I really feel for you. :(
