I'll be online less for a bit, but I'm getting needlework done.

If you notice I'm quieter than usual on LJ, it's because I have a hellacious cold right now. It's also making my sinuses feel like they're full of wet concrete (flashbacks of Allegra, which did nothing for me) so I'm not using my computer as much since it aggravates the light sensitivity that comes with sinus pain. Bleh.

Aside from that, we're gimping along until this cold lets up but it's given me lots of time to catch up on needlework.

As part of the moratorium on buying new patterns or kits, I _finally_ finished the backstitching on the needlepoint stocking I've been working on for Laurel. I haven't trimmed the canvas to size for finishing yet, so I'll post another picture after I've finished it (backing, lining and maybe a corded trim). Fear my uneven freehand script skills. (:


EDIT, NOV 2003: Photos of the finished stocking and a swatch of the lining have been posted.
