Welcome to a milestone Midweek Makers - #400!
That's comes out to a little over 7 1/2 years of Midweek Makers in my 10 years of blogging. Wow! And I plan to continue even with my recent health issues.
Which brings me to a big announcement. Next week, September 19, I will undergo back surgery to bring an end to all the issues causing leg pain and numbness. I've tried PT, heat, rubs, massage, NSAIDs, and cortisone shots all to no avail. There's no denying it any longer - lumbar fusion plus a couple other procedures are necessary to restore alignment and relieve the pressure on the nerves.
Yes, I know this is going to be nasty. Do I want to do it? NO. But I'd really like to get my life back - to be able to walk more than half a mile. To stand without my foot going numb. To look up at trees and stars without pain. To drive more than 10 miles without leg pain. To not limit my activities. To just move again. I'm not asking for much - just a semblance of normal.
Though I'll be out for awhile, Midweek Makers will still go on, as will the Quilt Block Mania blocks. I've been working hard the last few weeks, designing and writing patterns, and getting all the posts, including Midweek Makers, all set for the time while I'm in recovery. The only thing you'll miss is the weekly Midweek Makers features for a few weeks, but those are being replaced with some fun surprises.
Though this will be rough, I'm keeping a positive attitude - this will get better!
Now let's see the pretties from last week.
Julie's Quilts and Costumes made some great Dresden pillows with ties,
Scrapbox Quilts is making a pretty Christmas quilt,
and Songbird Designs shared this beauty.
