WIP Wednesday

This week I've been continuing to work on my piece for the A to Z challenge.  I'm determined to have it finished, and the blog posts written, before April even starts.  I've finished off the middle row, and have made a good start on the last two rows.

Do you know what it is?
I've been forced to stop and do a lot of stitching this week.  Last Thursday I slipped when getting out of the shower and fell head over heals.  My shower is a shower-over-bath so I fell over the top of that - I smacked my ankle on the edge of the bath, banged and grazed my knee on the floorboards, and knocked my shoulder on the wall.  My ankle swelled and started to bruise almost immediately, and is still rather tender to walk on by the end of the day.  I've been finding bruises everywhere.  The physiotherapist taped up my shoulder on Saturday after telling me I had a shoulder strain.  However, I did manage to not hit my head and didn't knock myself out when I fell - which I was very glad about as I live alone and was scared about how long it would have taken anyone to find me.  The result of all this is that I spent even more time than usual this weekend (and most afternoons) sitting on the couch and stitching.  My brother came over Saturday afternoon to make sure I was okay and helped do the washing, which was much appreciated.

An anti-slip mat for the bath is on the shopping list, as soon as I can find one!

Happy Stitching!
