Somehow, I threw out my back on Saturday and have been in pain for the past 3 days. Severe lower back pains and shooting pains down my left leg... sounds like sciatica... We'll see what the doctor says tomorrow morning. In the meantime, I've been trying to deal with it and work when I can... Getting to and from the machine... and the ironing station is agonizing, but once I'm sitting at the machine, I'm fine. I worked on my color block quilt, trying to finish up the bottom half of it. I got the bottom six rows sewn, but not without a goodly amount of ripping, probably because of the pain meds... at least that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. I'm not thrilled with the color placements but I'm not doing any more ripping - done is better than perfect!
Of course it still needs white strips on the right side and the bottom to be a totally finished top, but for now, I'm done. (It's after 11pm and my eyes are starting to droop closed of their own accord... no more sewing for me tonight).
Tomorrow morning is guild meeting, then my doctor's appointment, then mah jongg... a busy day! I hope the pain is manageable so I can do everything on my agenda...
