WIP Wednesday

Slim pickings here at Bell Creek Quilts! I finished hand sewing back the binding on the brown bunny hotpad. I had machine sewn the paisley bunny last week and decided I would rather try the hand sewn look. I should have made the binding wider as I have two layers of batting and Insul-brite inside. At least they match the quilt hanging by the kitchen table...located in my side bar now! Two done...two more to go. I set-up a TV tray table next to my chair in the family room and hope to sew the others while I let the heating pad warm my aches and pains.

The Doctor's report was that my back and leg x-rays are normal. Most likely I have a pinched nerve in my lower back and a soft tissue injury to the muscle in my lower right leg. The x-ray of my right foot revealed my heel spur (which has been there for about 10 years now) and arthritis in my big toe (which is new). I happy that my back is okay and time will heal this injury~I'm just a tad impatient...that's all!

Thanks for stopping by and checking in on me...more when I can do more! :)

Cute hot pads, Pad, and so springy! Sorry your back has been bothering you. Mine quit hurting when I quit work...must have been the chair all those years. Crazy, eh? Feel better soon.

Sorry to hear you've been down. Time will heal it but boy, what a pain to have to rest when you want to be up sewing. Hang in there and get well.

Cute rabbits--love the way you cut the paisley one! Well, at least it's nothing structural with your leg, and a pinched nerve can be dealt with, usually with stretching exercises and anti-inflammatories and maybe ice packs. I hope it heals quickly!
