incremental progress

in which our plucky heroine maintains some momentum despite setbacks...

Well, yesterday was pretty much a total loss. Woke up literally screaming in pain from a cramp in my calf muscle. After a phone call to the medical hotline, I had an appointment an hour later! From there I was sent on to the hospital for ultrasound and blood work. We have a saying "don't die of stupidity", which basically means things like remember to take your meds, stay hydrated, carry an epi-pen if needed, and if your body is doing something wierd, get it checked out... The good news is that in fact there is no blood clot in my leg, and my blood chemistry is entirely normal. (The bad is that I lost a whole day of ordinary work, and my leg still hurts).

Today was better. I finished stitching the tablet woven trim onto the wool apron dress I made for Isabel last month. Had a lovely visit with Drusa, (and her darling dog Mr Big) and chatted about projects in various media. I also finally managed to pickle the garlic scapes I harvested - four 8oz jars... they will need to sit in the pantry for at least a month or more, but will be a tasty addition to meals this autumn.
