I'm back ...OH! me back !!


and Gentlemen......
Thank you to those of you, who noticed I haven’t been around, and for your kind remarks ,the fact is my back went into spasm again so I have had a pretty painful time, I haven’t been on the computer very much ,the pain meds made me sleepy , or I couldn’t sit too long ,and I have missed my meetings ,I couldn’t go to the TPAS one in Cambridge ,and I missed the newsletter meeting, fortunately for me the forum meeting was cancelled due to the bad weather, until this Friday(also my Birthday! ) so ….fingers crossed ,I do hope I can manage to stay reasonably mobile and pain free ,we are to have a family gathering on Saturday evening at my Daughter Sharon’s pub, for my Birthday and to welcome Sharon’s new gentleman friend to the family . Those of you who read my journal will remember, we bought a kennel for Kizzie although she helped Maurice assemble it she refused to use it, So it is to have a new occupant!!, yes we went to the garden feature shop and bought Toby!,I cant wait for the better weather to get into the garden and set out all the new ornaments we now have ,and decide which looks best in which area




You remember in my last entry I told you about my lovely new friend in the fabric shop ,she has completed the quillow she was making ,for a lucky child ,’The Hungry Caterpillar’ ,and sent me a picture ,isn’t she clever ,it looks lovely doesn’t it ?



And so dear friends, I think I have been sitting long enough ,so I will leave it here....................... as usual Love From

Hope your back is easier now. I too suffer some times and the top of my shoulders do too, thats sitting sewing and sitting at the laptop. So glad you liked the caterpillar quillow, I hope my friends little grandson likes it we are taking it over to him on Friday. My friend and I used to work together for many years at the local playgroup and we loved reading the story of " the hungry caterpillar "
My flower fairy quillow is coming along at a great rate and the race is on to get it finished at posted to my friend in OZ for her 40th birthday in March !!!

Happy birthday for Friday , hope you have lots of fun and laughter with the family.
Take care , best wishes from Whittlesey

I'll be praying that back pain goes away. We don't want you to miss your birthday party for sure! You just got over that flu bug and then to get hit with back pain is quite enough for now. Hope your birthday is a great one! I'll be looking for pictures of the celebration!

Jan, I do sympathise with what you must be going through. I have had the odd spasm whilst doing something silly like washing up, and know how painful that can be.
I think I shall have to settle for a Toby. Not much progress with selling the idea of a real live one to `Thing' :o(
Your new friend really is very talented.
Yes, Happy Birthday soon - moving into our sign!

Sorry to hear about your sore back, Jan. I feel your pain. In 1991 I injured my low back at work and had to have 2 major back surgeries. So anytime someone mentions back pain, I cringe because I remember. What a lovely dog house and what a naughty Kizzie not to use it. I've had a few hours here & there outide working in the yard but it's still bone chilling cold out there most days. My daffodils & tulips are poking thru the dirt, so there is hope that Spring is coming. Linda in Washington

Sybil said...

Hi Jan, so glad to see you back. Not so good news about your back though. There seems to have been so much illness about since Christmas...what with some of my friends backs "going out " Mary has had a bad knee but had an injection in it today so fingers crossed she will be better now, some with colds that won't go away, it goes on and on. I do wish the spring would really "spring" !! It seems such a long time since we had the warmth of the sunshine on our faces.
Keep smiling friend, Have a wonderful weekend x

Much Love Sybil

Jeannette said...

I'm sorry to hear you have a bad back Jan. I hope the pain soon goes although be careful when it does as it's liable to come back if you over exert! There speaks a voice of experience! I bet now Kizzie has a new occupant for the kennel she'll want to get in there! Nina won't let anybody near her beanbag bed! Have a very happy birthday Jan, 21 again I hear?! Enjoy your time out tomorrow with the family. The quilt is beautiful, such a lot of detail in it! Jeannette xxxx

Pamela said...

That quilt is beautiful! Toby is so cute. He will look good outside in your garden.
Hope you feel better this weekend.
Pam

Angie said...

At least Toby won't go eating Kizzy's dinner! I don't blame her not going in the kennel - YER FERGOT THE ROOF!!! Hope your back is ok now.
love, Angie, xx

lunarossa said...

Hope your back is better now, Jan. I'm having a bad spell with my back as well at the moment. It might the cold and wet weather! Or just the fact that I spend too much time in front of the computer...My daughter and I really like your Kizzy. My "baby" girl is desperate for a dog but daddy and older brother don't want one! Love the quillow! Fantastic! Look after yourself. All the best. Ciao. Antonella

Lucy said...

Hope you are able to be up AND AROUND MORE. i MISS HEARING FROM YOU, but I do understand.

SubeeSews said...

Oh, I so understand spasms in the back. I had surgery 4 years ago and it seemed to help the pain but the spasms became a constant companion.
It does affect the time I can spend hand quilting. I can no longer sit for hours in my recliner. Luckily I can sit at the sewing machine.

Rose Mary said...

So sorry your back has been out! I know how painful that is. I hope you have a lot of improvement very soon!

On a brighter note~Happy Birthday tomorrow!! I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time with our family.

Lucy said...

Back problems are just so hard to deal with. So glad to hear from you. I was worried. You are so upbeat and I truly missed you. Were you suprised by your dashboard or has it reached you?? Please take care of yourself. Lucy
