I've been away for a while recupperating from a back injury. Not being able to exercise as much as I usually do has gotten me down but being unable to sit for more than 10 minutes at a time has been cutting into my sewing, which has left me frustrated. But I'm going to start trying to sew and blogging again.

Last week my younger kids when back to school!


My sister was visiting while her house had no power thanks to Irene and while she was here my kids discovered a new past time!


As soon as they left the shore I realized I forgot to tell my son, no bumping boats, Darn! Boys! Need to make that clear for the next time.



This weekend I am resting from a procedure I had done on Friday for my back, so:
I have a new book


A quilt to be finished for Margaret's Hope Chest www.margaretshopechest.com


Some blocks to finish piecing


And some new fabric to start playing with! Thanks Stephanie for pointing me to this a couple of weeks ago, I went back since and this particular print was sold out!
Hope you all enjoy your weekend!

Wishing you well and a speedy recovery. I knew that green floral print would sell out quickly. My JoAnns is out already as well. Love your pinwheel blocks. Happy reading.

I'm sorry to hear about your back problems. I've suffered with a problematic back since I was 15 so know just how debilitating it can be, and how frustrating too. It's good to see you back and hope things get back to normal for you soon.

Hope you are back 100% soon. Everyone needs to take some SERIOUS time off once in a while.

It was really sold out at my Joann's too. I had to order it from etsy. It is the prettiest of the lot I think.

Hope you are getting around better today from your surgery.

I hope you back is more comfy now Lynn. Sorry this is a bit of a catch up with you. I've been AFK this week getting Laura to uni.

Love the new activity for the boys. :-) Great fun.

Little and often with the sewing sounds good.
