Some of you know I've been in the bed for a couple of weeks with a sciatic nerve issue. I hate sciatic nerves. I have no idea why we need them but I'm pretty sure we don't.
Anyway, I got this little piece prepped and ready in one of my brief periods when the pain meds were doing their thing and my brain was still functioning too. That didn't always happen at the same time.
Then, when I started cutting my meds in half I was able to do the hand stitching and today, when I've been more off the meds than on I got the pillow back on it. He turned out pretty cute I think.
I've even got another pillow top started with most of the hand stitching done. My friend Michelle from Raspberry Rabbits is going to like it. That should give you a clue what little furry animals might be on it. :) Tomorrow, if I have any energy at all left after a visit to the chiropractor's and the allergy clinic to get shots, I hope to finish it.
Thank goodness I started several weeks ago on a project for the upcoming So She Sews Blog Hop - I won't have a lot of different things done for that when my post goes up on Friday but I'll at least have something there!
The ironic thing about not feeling good enough to be up and sewing is that you sit and look at magazines and quilt books and online tutorials and end up with this looooong list of things you want to make but you have no strength or energy to make them. And when you feel well enough to make all those things you have a million other things that real life requires, like cooking and shopping and laundry and not much time for sewing. Funny how life works that way. Or not funny, whatever the case might be.
