As most of you know from previous posts, I have been having a problem with a leg.  The problems have gotten worse.  I had an MRI and am going to have surgery - fusion L4-5 on my back probably in August.  I am currently walking with  a walker after taking a very bad fall last week.  Most of my sewing is on hold.  I am watching a lot of tv of which I normally would not do.  So thus I am working on my pretzel quilt (hand project).  I ordered a new walker today after spilling my lunch all over the floor.  I bought one of those new fangled things with the basket and bigger wheels.  A little costly but it will provide me with more safety.  It is hard to hang onto a walker with two hands and carry something at the same time.

Hope all is well on your end.

I am still having problems with my leg.  I am sure it is sciatica.  I went to the dr. and she has given me meds and I seem to be on the mend.  There is not a lot I can do.  It is hard to hobble around with a cane.  I am still working on my hand project.  As you can see, I have made progress.  Click on the picture and see if you can pick up the pattern of colors. 

I just bought this.  It is a See and Sew.  It has two lights one on the side and one in the back.  Handy storage for all of those little things that seem to get lost especially when you need them.  The sewing machine sits in front of it. 

Look at this little gem.  I found it in San Diego.  It is in almost perfect condition.  Apparently a lady had bought it in 1955.  She sewed on it, some, she moved and the movers put it in the attic.  She thought it was lost.  It was in the attic until she passed and her son was going through her things and found it. 


It is unbelievably hot in Louisiana.  We may get rain today.  I will not hold my breath.  The grass is turning brown.  Louisiana is suppose to be tropical, hot and humid.  Yesterday is was 102 degrees but the humidity was 22 %.  Very unusual for here.  I suppose I should not complain at least the humidity was low, but hot is hot and believe me it was hot. 

Hope all is well on your end...............
