Just in time October Whimsy

 (Finish 25) October 31st
A Year of Whimsy by Dimensions (Out of Print)
Stitched on Perforated Paper
Used Suggested DMC
Started whole project for DUCJC Jan 1st, 2016.
Took 6 Days.
Just in time! I literally just finished this one and hurried to get it posted before November gets here. This was a close one. Love it though!! I can't believe I only have two of these whimsy's left.

Friday Mom and I was outside doing some yardwork. We were pulling up our tomato plants since they were done for the season. I just heard her screaming and saw her holding her arm. She was barely able to walk inside the house. She told me she thought she did something to her arm. She couldn't move it at all. So I insisted she go get it looked. Didn't seem like it was okay to wait and see what happened. I worried her arm was out of socket. She went to a walk in clinic and they sent her immediately to a specialist. The lady told her she thinks she tore her bicep tendon muscle. OUCH!! No surgery required because of mom's age. It wouldn't really help much and it would be a horrible recovery. So she gave her pain meds and told her to ice it. Now that some time has passed I don't think it was a complete tear I think she just pulled it. She is still in pain but I think she really lucked out. She is finally able to move it more today. The healing process will be a long one but hopefully not as long as originally thought to be. Not a nice welcome home from the garden. Fred and me were able to get it all finished up Saturday.

By the way Happy Halloween!! I'm so behind on blog reading but I wanted to get my October Whimsy finished up before I turned the calendar to November. Goal met now I can breath a little.
