A little update

It seems ages since I've been in touch but life has a way of doing that sometimes. My stitching has been limited since I managed somehow to throw out my back. It was very painful and sitting (or laying down) for long periods of times was impossible. Never knew a heating pad and Motrin would become my best friends in those painful moments.

I did manage to finish "A is for Anchor" and I am currently crocheting a baby blanket for my grandson who is due to make his appearance in May. Hopefully I can start a baby sampler soon.

Ouch Milly - I hope you're getting better - I had back trouble when I was expecting the last two children, and I know how truly awful it is :o(

Shari said...

very pretty Milly & ouch about the back. I can so relate, since I deal with a bad back on a daily basis.

Milly--hope that your back will be healed very soon, and that you are back to your old self again! It's no fun being sick where you cannot STITCH!

Hugs.

Nice job! Sorry for the pain - take care of it so you'll be able to do lots of baby things - like snuggle and spoil ;-)

Hi Milly--just came across your blog and wanted to say how nice your PS looks! I think I could spend all of my time just stitching Prairie Schoolers...

Hope your back is feeling better by now, too!

Edy said...

ooh...that smarts. I know from back problems. No position is comfortable.
Glad you had the fortitude to do a little stitching at least.
And congratulations on the grandbaby- to-be.
