A glove of a different kind

It was mighty hot yesterday...
We had my doctor appointment in the morning and then Mr H in the afternoon...to hot to trot! Both went well. Luckily with an automatic starter we can pre-cool the car for a few minutes before attempting to ride.  My therapy appointment went okay. I ill return next week and have a splint/brace made, but in the meantime....
this is what I will wear at bedtime and also on/off during the day as I feel comfortable. This wrapping will immobilize my fingers to give the muscles rest. It is limited mobility. Also during the day....

a comprtession glove to help reduce the swelling. This can be worn on/off also. Of course with this wonderful heat wave, it is a bit uncomfortable. I would much rather wear on of these...
love my gloves...yes, the were all mine and I did wear them during the fab 60's. 
just look at the detail..in #1 the delicate embroidery and scallop edge; #2lovely flowers at each finger tip; #3 those are delica beads soen all over the glove and cuff and #4 the sweet bow embroidered in a formal like trim. I have many others but these happen to be handy this morning. Eveery sooften I take them out to wash and along with my many hankies, it is a task.
A girl was not completely dressed in those day unless she had her hankie, gloves and hat...... lost times. WEll, time to have that second cup of coffee and maybe get a few xx's done. Jake, my therapist said I should rest be continue slowly to try to do everyday things. Thank you all for the kind words and wishes...you certainly make my day. Whatever your plans, enjoy the day.

Today is the day!

I have so missed my stitching. I have rested my hand all week....well, except for house duties....some of which are not for Mr H to do. So today I plan to stitch on Red, she is waiting for a finish. I thought I should show you what I have left off with on....
this is Meadow so far. I already have a frame for it which helps to see how it is looking as I go along. I need to add a few more orange flowers and also the ground yellow ones. I have enjoyed this project. It may be hard to see, but I put in a small area with "rocks" for a path. I think more seed heads for the grass also.
One side of Red Riding Hood's forest is complete. I am making a change...not adding the words so I shortened the sides. Not much more to go on the other side then I will add the snowflake motifs. Oh and of course  finish Wolf's tail. We had some drizzle on Friday so the roofers did not work.... not because of the drizzle...more because of the lightening that was happening when they came to work! Made sense to me to be a day behind instead of possibly being struck by lightening up on the roof....
Time to check on the laundry and I desperately need some food before settling down to stitch. Thank you for your kind words and most of all your friendship....have a great day. The sun just came out from behind the clouds...better get those umbrellas open!
