finished 12/17/2007
I finished this today. The cross stitching was completed months ago, but I just added the lazy daisy flowers and leaves and the gold braid. I'm happy with they way it turned out and will frame it someday.

The strength is coming back in my hand. In certain positions it is painful and I'm still having trouble doing some things. But, compared to how weak it was last Wednesday, I've come a long way. Still doing exercises at home, and will go for therapy weekly for the next 5 weeks.

Beautiful finish Mary, congrats. The fact you did it almost one handed is even more amazing.
