Two WIPs and a job update :)

So I had three days off from work, which was a good thing, as my hands are basically killing me. It's been 15 years or more since I've worked with my hands in such a manner and it will take time to build back up. That and no longer being 21 is not helping any, LOL! :P Yesterday, I spent a LOT of time icing my hands down and trying to work them in other ways. I decided to do some other types of crafting as holding the Q-Snap frame is really hurting my hands. I've stuck to putting together smaller projects and doing some general cleaning. In the course of my cleaning, I found even more WIPs and UFOs, so my total has gone back up to about 50 now. Le sigh. I really shouldn't beat myself up about it, but I'm a bit bummed. I was really feeling good about the progress I had made, but then I found the others. Well, I still finished 35 of them, so that cannot be taken away. I've organized my bins and what all, so I now have a bin devoted to just WIPs and UFOs and I'll just continue on as I have. I may revisit some of them, as I am not sure I will ever finish some of them. I will cross that bridge when I get to it I guess. :)


At any rate, here is my two WIPs that I have been working on. Stitchy notes included! :)
