WOYWW 258 - Back Out - Crafter In

Happy What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday! Link your desk here and join crafty ones all over the planet. Last Saturday I pulled my back - what a trauma. I couldn't even move until we put some ice on it. I've been recovering more and more each day, thank goodness! At this point I can sit at my crafty table, a little. Playing with beads and wire made me quite happy.
Making bliss rings and bubble wands.
After a while, the spot I pulled starts hurting, so it's back to the ice pack, relaxing and watching last Sunday's episodes of Call the Midwife and Once Upon a Time. I was thrilled about Chummy's new story line - Julia, you were right! And the season finale of Once Upon a Time was thrilling, daughter and I both screamed out.
There's diecutting to do!
I really want to get over there to Violet - my sewing machine. But back hurts a little too much for that. On Mother's Day, my family was waiting on me hand and foot, gave me presents and took me out to eat, and I really needed it! Other than missing my own mommy terribly, and the back issue, it was a wonderful Mother's Day.
My favorite gift was from DD - Honey perfume!

Now to soldier on through the week, exercising, resting the back injury, ice and heat on it, and then more rest! Because Friday night I must make it to a Cardinals baseball game where my nephews get to walk out on the field to be recognized with their hockey team as the state champions! Woo hoo! And then I've got a garden to plant--already a week late because of a hot water heater disaster, the same day my back went out! Hope my plants can hang in there.

Have a wonderful rest of the week lovelies.

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch, Relax


  1. Oh no about your back! :( That's no fun. At least you had some good tv to watch!

  2. Hi Sandy Leigh...ouch, not good to hurt ones back, hope your're back to 100% soon. Great pics of your desk and room...lots going on, cool rings. Cheers and get well soon RobynO#73

  3. Sounds painful :^(((( Praying you get to go to the game but I think the garden should wait a bit!! :^) patsy

  4. Hearing your complaints, I become mindful with gratitude that I am not suffering with pain. I hope you will soon be well and motivated to play in the dirt. I'm happy to her you were mothered...hand and foot. Be well Carole #44

  5. Sure hope your pain lessens soon! Nothing worse than backpain. I am smiling that your sewing machine has a fun name too! Hope you get to the game. I am a Met fan and am so happy that we have been the Yanks so far both of the subway series games so far. Tonight they go to Citifield! I can't get tickets to these games as they are coveted. But I can pop corn and enjoy it in my house..Winnie#57

  6. Back pain! Ouch! Hope it get all better soon. Love your busy crafty space. Thanks for visiting my blog! ~Sandy in Texas #86

  7. Hope your back recovers in time for Friday...your desk looks fun. Helen 7

  8. Crumbs, another injured crafter! It's a more dangerous activity than I'd thought! Seriously, I hope you get better really soon - be kind to yourself, and don't try to do too much too soon. Have a good week, taking it easy. Hugs, Chris # 23

  9. Oh blimey girl, you too? I'm so sorry to hear that you've done your back in. It's the daftest things that can do it...mine was carrying heavy sacks of garden rubbish. However, I have to tell you that I'm ok now, it took about three weeks but no pain at all. So, take care and don't overdo things and hopefully you'll get there too.
    I was away last weekend, down seeing to my dad in Wales and didn't have access to the Internet otherwise I'd have emailed you on Mothers Day. The first one without her is just awful...although I couldn't contact you, I was thinking of you all day, honey. It still hurts to walk past the racks of Mothers Day cards in the shops eve now...... But, they wouldn't want us to get all down about it, would they? So you and I can go boldly forth, seeking out new frontiers..... :-)
    I must take some pics of my garden and send them to you, everything's coming along nicely now the frosts have passed. I planted lots of stuff out in the garden when I got back home and it's looking good!
    Hugs, LLJ 22 xx

    1. This is why you're my soul sister - you are the sweetest. Thank you dearest!

  10. I hope your back is feeling better. Having suffered with my back in the past I know how you must be feeling. It takes time but if you do the right things it will get better.
    Happy crafting, Angela x 50
