Feels Like Fall

                                             Hello Friends!

         With temps dipping lower and lower it's time to start picking up my
                 hook and finish this fall Afghan I started last spring!

                        As well this pumpkin pillow I started rug hooking last August!

          Do you have any projects that you start and then stop for lack of interest or maybe time?


                                                        Thanks for stopping by!

                                      Hello Friends!

           Just thought I would pop in and share a little of this and that.

                    I have been busy in my studio with my grand daughter
                 cooking up some ghostly....haunted .......looking house.

It all started a few years ago when I thought I would dabble in making doll houses....

That's where it ended... I made a small doll house and it sat lonely in my crafters closet

Then this year I tried to come up with some new craft or creation that we could work on together.
You remember that Miss A. also loves to create....She visits me during the summer school break.

So out came the doll house... and out came the paints......

                                 Let's make a HAUNTED HOUSE!

box cushion for wrought iron bench

                                              Hello Friends!

                  I would love to share with you how my wrought iron bench looks now!

                            A few weeks back I purchased this bench at a country sale .

It looks rather stark without a cushion don't you think so I set out to find the perfect fabric.

                                 Hello Friends!

                  Thanks for all the get well wishes!

               I'm finding that my Chiropractor with traction 2 times a week is working wonders. As well as listening to my own 

It is hard, don't get me wrong....I see a weed in my garden and I automatically lean over
and pull it out......Nope can't do that.......
Fill up the large watering can and carry it out to my potted plants.....Nope can't do that either.

No lifting, no pulling, no long car rides in the old vehicles....and so on and so on......

Well that's enough of me....

                                  Let's talk WEAVING!!!!

                       Do you have a bucket list??

                        Weaving's on this list.....

I set out to give it a try......found this post on AKA Design
                            and thought why not!!!

Supplies I needed:

a picture frame......had a 20x16  canvas from the dollar store
took off the canvas and there was my picture frame that I needed.

Nails 3/4 inch in my hubby's garage

a ruler



a long tapestry needle

3/4 inch piece of dowelling ...dollar store

yarn and plenty of it......

I'm using DK  heavy weight in white.....

There are may Youtube instructions on how to get started.

As well all the stitches and designs at your fingertips.

I followed the instructions on AKA Design Market Makers Summit.

taking one day at a time

                                                    Hello friends!

As some of you might know I am suffering with my back and have been for some time!

It all started last March when I had a hard time walking when I stood up from watching
some TV. My legs didn't want to co operate and I felt crunchy not sure if you can relate all over.

Mentioned this to my doctor and she wasn't too concerned since the pain didn't last
long after I got moving I was ok.

But it continued and continued till I was put on all kinds of meds to see if this would help.

Told me I had a sciatica problem and to see a physiotherapist. So I went  once a week for a
month and it didn't improve.

Then I developed vertigo...the room spun every time I lifted my head off my pillow.
Put me on more pills and that made me feel worse.   So I went off all these pills and my Doctor
put me on muscle relaxer' s thought my whip lash had come back..... didn't like this feeling of
being loopy (high) so I went off them.

So I decided to see a Chiropractor.

Every other day for the past month.

Since I showed little improvement he sent me for lower back xrays.

Just as I suspected...degenerated discs in my lower back pinching nerves....

So I'm now in traction every other day at the Chiropractors and told to rest my back.
No gardening,no hoeing,raking,not to lift anything heavy, no long days shopping at the malls.

Short walks, not to sit for long periods of long car rides in our antique vehicles.....

If I sit for 15 minutes I will use an ice pack on my lower back. Get up and walk around the acreage
so the dogs can have a  run. Miss my long walks.....

Well I woke this morning like I was run over by a truck (just an expression.)

Last wednesday was my last appt with the chiropractor since we had a long weekend.

I go today for my 15 minute workout. I'm told if he (the chiropractor) can't fix me then I'm off to
see a surgeon. So for now I'll try my best at following his instructions.

You see I'm not the type to sit around and do nothing!!!!

I'm always on the go and this is ceasing me up.

                               Thanks for giving me your ear!

                                  I had to vent!!!
