I had every intention of joining Wendy & the ladies for some FNSI fun... but it just wasn't to be.
Yes, I need a sad-face emoji.
To start with, my dodgy back (or "compromised lumbar spine" as my specialist calls it) decided to play up... I have disc-bulge episodes episodes now & then; they cause tremendous pain but I'm well versed in management.
The pain was not too bad in the morning, & it wasn't enough to put me off going to Patchwork... but when I unpacked my cross stitch, I realised I didn't have the chart, so no stitching for me... another sad face!
As the day progressed, the pain increased considerably, so I went into Management Mode as soon as I got home.
It's feeling a lot better today, but still will be a few more days until feeling really good again... no sitting, sofa or chairs for me, for now... pain of any sort is such a beast... but that's how it rolls... I manage.
In place of stitching, I have at least been leafing through some of the gorgeous books I have on my shelf... god help me, they're giving me all sorts of inspiration & ideas... plus the ones that are already on my Wanna-Do List... plus the WIPs & UFOs...
Doesn't the mind play silly games when one is rendered immobile??!
Thank you Wendy for hosting us again... at least I have time now to go visit the other people who signed up! Pop over here to see the links.
