Very nice!

She wasn’t pleased to be up at 4:30 in the morning. She insists on getting up whenever I do, and won’t be left in the bedroom if I get up early and Jim is still sleeping. But I woke up with my tailbone aching at 4:00, and couldn’t get comfortable enough to fall back to sleep. I had to move around to ease the ache, so I took quilt pictures, and made a batch of white chili in the crockpot. She dozed on the couch giving me occasional side-eye.

I have been stalled on working on my next lap quilt. The fabric I ordered was snowed in somewhere in the midwest, no updates on shipping for a whole long week. It was terrible. :grin:

But it started moving again yesterday, so hope has pushed despair away. I can start watching the front step again.

Oh no! I’m glad you were able to find something productive to do and white chili sounds pretty tasty, but it’s too bad you were awakened so early! Has the ache at least diminished some since you were first injured?

I love how your circle quilt looks like it was specifically made for your current living room!

@Immaculata, I have to agree with @Lynx2Lancer, your quilt made me think of the ocean as well! You did a great job transforming those jeans into something so pleasant to look at and relax with!

I’m doing better than I was. I was able to drive myself to a doctor’s appointment yesterday (unrelated), and I’ve gone from yelling obscenities when I stand up or sit down, to mildly muttering under my breath. I can walk around slowly and do tasks that are at torso/bust height, like dishes or chopping vegetables, but can’t reach down to the floor. But the thing that still really hurts is rolling over in bed. I can fall asleep on my left side for a few hours, but eventually my left hip gets sick of that, and I need to roll to my right. That’s a few minute process, wherein I’m trying not to yell and wake my husband. Eventually the pain keeps me from finding any comfortable spot and I just have to get up and move around for a while then ice it again, so I’ve been up around 3:30-4:30 since I fell.

Coincidentally my doctor had also fallen on her tailbone, and fractured her elbow at the same time. It was interesting with her, the nurse, and I all working together to get me rolled over on the exam table yesterday, so I could sit up. :laughing:

That sounds pretty hellish.

I’m glad it’s decreasing, but I wish for your sake that the pain and discomfort would decrease faster!

Wow, that quilt is just really beautiful! It looks so great in your room. Is it hard to quilt round edges? I haven’t done that before.

@marionberries I hope your fabric finds it way to you soon! I,too, have ordered more (preparation, not quite necessity) fabric for my mountain quilt.

@mistressjennie I hope your tailbone feels better soon! We are sadly a pair of quilter’s in pain My upper back/shoulder/neck area is still bothering me (I may end up needing an adjustment), but I keep stretching, using my TENS unit, and a little pain meds. I haven’t really been interested in sewing right now – too focused on using up yarn!

@Audiobooklover How is LittleBookLover doing? Better still? Back to his old self?

The blocks look like moody sea scapes in that lighting!

@Lynx2Lancer It’s scheduled for delivery today! Dare I get my hopes up? I’ve managed to get quite a bit of other crafting done as I wait.

I hope you’re feeling better soon too! And I hear you on the sewing right now. I actually WANT to be sewing, but I’m sooooo close to being done with my giant mega-afghan, that I’m trying to resist temptation to let my mind wander, and focus on finishing. I’m on my second-to-last skein of yarn, so I have about 12 more rows left. Going to put on some Netflix and power through whatever I can today.

I just picked out the fabric for my February block. It seems as though I’m a last weekend of the month maker for this. Hopefully, I can break that trend! I’m hoping to cut the fabric Friday night, and stitch it up on Saturday .

Yes, thank you for asking! He is doing a lot better and is back to his old self. He has been having a good time here at home playing with his toys (I’m hoping to take advantage of that tomorrow to work on a project or two)! He has a follow up appointment with his GI doc later this week, so hopefully that will shed some light on how we can prevent future issues from occurring!
