Thanks everyone, I'm feeling much better now. It's more of an annoying sort of ache now rather than a stabbing pain.
I actually finished this RR on Friday. And let me tell you, I was so happy to have it done. Those pears were killing me. Actually, towards the end, they made me laugh because they started looking less like pears and more like certain male anatomy. I pointed it out to James and he thought it was pretty funny. Anyway, while quite detailed, this piece is stitched one over one so it's only about 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"
Here's the entire RR to date.
