WOW: Still Hobbling Around

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
Thank you so much for your well wishes and good thoughts for my speedy recovery. It's been 10 days now and I really am feeling better, pain wise. But I'm still sore and hobbling around. It's so boring to be in so much pain. It's boring to talk about and it's boring to listen to, so I apolagize for that. It's been my main preoccupation and I've been super frustrated too, because not only do I have so much to do (and am keen to get on with it all), but I'm just not the kind of person who like to do..well, 'nothing'.

I tried all sorts of things to keep my mind active, a bit of crochet, some reading, some designing, but everything just made me feel sick. Since my back has been 'out' of alignment, I've been having headaches and can't stand too much screen time, so even my favourite Pinterest boards don't interest me! It feels like such a waste of 'down time'..
But anyhow, I finally settled on some hand stitching. I have a box of HST scraps that I've started putting together into mini blocks (above). It's all very random. I make these every now and again. This is the project I take with me when I'm going to a sewing bee as it's basic and I don't have to concentrate whilst I'm chatting away. One day I will end up with a fantastic multi fabric HST block quilt that contains scraps from ALL my quilt projects and stash remnants and this idea really pleases me.

So for now I rest, stretch, sew some blocks and repeat. Hopefully I'll be back on my feet by the next WOW, I have so much I want to share with you..

What's Your WOW?


  1. So frustrating to be unable to work on your main projects. Many of us have been there at one time or another. May you feel better soon.

  2. I am busy cutting scraps this week - long over due. I hope you get to feeling better quickly

  3. Your scrappy is going to be so full of so many memories of designs and quilts you have made over you quilting journey. Every time you use it you will smile when you see a tiny scrap and think that was?????? quilt. Glad you are finally on the mend and may be able to get some treatment soon! Cheers Glenda

  4. Hope your better soonest. Gentle hugs,

  5. I know how hard it is when in pain-you just cannot concentrate! I worked on an applique leaf-TINY-in knee rehab and it took an hour! When I finished & looked at what I had done, I realized I had to take the whole thing out it was so poorly done. Wound up making large yo-yo's for a very long time. :) Slow & steady~Susan
