I had prepped a zippy
bag full of these
a while back
while using the heating 
pad on my back,
 I sat and watched the Red Sox
last evening and hand sewed.
Tomorrow morning I go to
my first PT class....
I don't know how 
sore I will be after that
So i may not be posting
for another while...
Here is the latest addition to our
Out kayaking in her little
vest with my DIL..
She is 14 weeks old and
such a cutie pie...
I can't wait to meet her
in person...
Enjoy your day,
Hugs, from my recliner,

  1. Hope your back is getting better each day! The hexies look like the perfect thing to do while using that heating pad.

  2. I've been meaning to try some qayg crazy quilt hexies. I like what you have done so far.

    Hope the PT helps! I feel your pain!

    I've had bouts of sciatica for years as well as herniated disk. PT gave me exercises to do long time ago and sometimes I do those when pain is bad but mostly I try to walk with long strides every day and even stretch my leg to reach the foot pedal when I sew. I also put cold pack on for 20 minutes several times a day. And when the pain is bad even though I feel like lying around I get up and move as that seems to relieve pain. Since I've retired I have been lucky and not had many bouts with it. I think sitting at my desk job for 10 hours or so a day did me in!

  3. A small project like your hexxies is perfect. Take care of you so you can play with that lovely puppy when you get a chance!

  4. I will be thinking of you tomorrow, hope the session goes well.

    Lucy is so sweet and pretty. Only 14 weeks!


  5. First day of PT is usually evaluation and checking for range of motion etc. Hopefully they'll give you some gentle stretches to do at home until visit 2. GOOD LUCK!!

  6. Oh no! I was wondering how you were doing. The hexagons look good. I hope they are able to help with the back pain. Lucy is a sweetie.

  7. Lucy looks like a real cutie! Hope you get to meet her and snuggle in person soon.

    All the best for your physio. Hope you feel better after it and not worse!

  8. Hope pt works for you. Thinking of you. Hugs

  9. Get well wishes! Hope you are feeling better soon! Love your hexies and that cute puppy!

  10. I have wondered about working with hexies this way - yours already look very pretty. I hope the combination of rest and PT helps you soon.

  11. PT will be such a help. The exercises always helped me in the long run but I love when they actually did some massage.

  12. Beautiful hexies, Julierose. I hope the PT is helping and you get relief soon.

  13. Hope all went well with the PT and love the new addition to your extended faimily!

  14. You posted this a week ago (or more) and I hope by now you've had at least one round of PT and that your back is feeling better. It's always hard when our bodies have pain.
    Your hexagons look beautiful. It's good you have some handwork you can do and especially good that it was already prepared.
