Embroidered Scissor Case WIP4 by sidneyeileen
Embroidered Scissor Case WIP4
The embroidery on the scissor case is finished.
Cotton DMC floss on cotton canvas.
I used Bayeux Tapestry style couching, stem stitch, wrapped stem stitch, chain stitch, and padded satin stitch.

From here I need to make the leather lining, remove this from the hoop and prep it, and sew it together.

Embroidered Scissor Case - WIP1 by sidneyeileen
Embroidered Scissor Case - WIP1

November ended up being a difficult and mostly unproductive month.  In the last few days I was finally back to working on a project.  This is an old/new project.  I am not sure how many years ago I designed and first started embroidering this scissor case, which I hadn’t touched in many years since I hated the way the stitches I picked were turning out, they were inordinately time consuming, and I didn’t know how to do some of them properly, resulting in a mess that I was not proud of and did not want to spend time finishing.

On Thanksgiving I finally dug it out, pulled out all the original embroidery, and redrew the design so it was easily visible again.  On Friday I started embroidering it in a completely different manner.  What you see here is how far I was able to get by Saturday night.

The borders are all bayeux style couching of blue pearl cotton with purple three-strand cotton DMC floss.  The borders are two-strand purple DMC cotton floss, stem stitched.  I will be embroidering much of the detailed design using padded satin stitch, and otherwise I am undecided on what stitches to use.  The fabric is cotton duck canvas.

Starting Long-Term Antibiotics

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 6, 2013, 1:31 PM




Starting Long-Term Antibiotics
This morning at 6:30 am, I took my first dose of antibiotics. It will be the first of three today. If all goes well, I will continue to take them on a schedule overseen by my doctor for the next six months. I will be taking monthly blood tests to ensure that the antibiotics themselves don't result in complications. Hopefully the anaplasma infection will be cleared up within that six months, and we won't need to extend the duration of the antibiotics.

So, herx reactions... Well, so far I'm in a damned good mood, and feeling mostly normal. I do have a cough now, and my nose is running a bit. I've also has a weird ringing and pressure in my left ear a couple times that threw my balance momentarily. I suppose just not enough of the buggers have died yet for me to be feeling it much. I'm sure that will change.

Oh, and as for side benefits, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I won't have acne for the next several months.
