UPDATE~Stenciled Canvas Runner

I spent most of Sunday at Urgent Care with a diagnosed Bladder Infection and Kidney concerns...was treated with an antibiotic IV and RX for pills...
Tuesday, pain was still not getting better???
Went to ER early Tuesday...No more white blood cells in urine...CT Scan showed No Superficial Tumors in Bladder (have been treating this for 17 years) with kidney looking fine.  Blood work showed ALL IS WELL...
I have gotten a little behind with a big beautiful mess still on our farm table.
Pain persists while laying down and after sitting then walking.
Will see my Orthopedic Dr. on Monday for perhaps a hip problem??? 
Can't understand continued pain while walking if all is well .
Enough said ! ! !
Some Updates for today... 
must sit to paint, otherwise standing 
presents uncomfortable pain.

Tomorrow, I will begin the sides using the 'Vine and berries' part of stencil.
Yet to be blocked out, not wanting to get it too busy .
Less is often more.
LUV the Pineapple design 

In spite of my recent physical limitations...
I am really enjoying making this far.

~It will be finished~

'til next time, Thanks for visiting
Peace to all,


  1. Sorry you're having so much pain and I hope it resolves soon. I'll be watching for a tutorial on how you age and hem this great floorcloth.

  2. It won't be sewn...probably use a special glue for canvas. Any suggestions?

  3. Barb,
    So sorry to hear you are in pain! I hope you feel better soon.
    LOVE your runner.
    Hugs :)

  4. Hope you are feeling better. Your runner is so that colonial look!
    Take good care,

  5. Hi Barb,
    I'm so very sorry to hear you have been dealing with so much pain!! It is NEVER FUN, but am so happy you are still able to do what you love and I certainly hope they can find out what the problem is!! I have lived with pain for so many years now since I have Fibromyalgia, but Thank God each day for all of the good days and feeling good 90% of the time!!
    Your runner is just gorgeous and I have wanted to make one for a number of years so yours inspires me!! I believe you use rubber cement to glue/hem the edges, right?
    Hope you have a good week and thank you for your lovely comment on my blog!!!!
    Warm Hugs~
