Kris this is looking fantastic. I love what you are doing with the backing.
Ladies I've been having lots of back problems again. I ended up in the ED on New Year's Eve. My upper back was spasming so hard I couldn't breathe. I collapsed en route to a patient. They did a full cardiac work up because of the symptoms but everything came back fine. Just spasms. I think they over medicated me. I was groggy most of New Year's.
I'm on all sorts of drugs trying to find relief. Hopefully this weekend I can make a block or two. More doctor visits next week. I think I have one everyday.
Well, the holidays are over. Company, Thanksgiving, Christmas, my birthday and New Years really put a stop to my sewing. Christmas decorations are all down and put away, I just have to vacuum the living room and put the furniture back where it belongs, then I can pull out my fabric again.
Welcome Beth. I am about two assignments behind in the blocks. I joined when the group was already 3 assignments in and was caught up at one point.
Kris, I love your quilt, hope you back straightens out and you are able to sit and sew a while.
Hope that your back problems will diminish quickly, Kris. My DH has osteoarthritis in his back and has a terrible time. Right now he's doing okay but we never know when another flare up will occur. I will keep you, your situation, and the doctors in my thoughts and prayers.
I've been MIA for quite a while. Sorry it's been so long since I posted. Since I've been lurking and not posting, I wanted you to know that everyone's blocks are looking so amazing. I can't say it enough. The blocks are delightful. And Kris, your quilt is going to be fantastic. I'm so far behind on several assignments, LUS, DJ, my Jo Morton's, my BOM's. I might have to get it together today and just sew until I'm caught up. Well better get to whatever it is I'm going to get done today. Have a happy quilty day.
Kris, I'm so sorry to hear about your back problems. I can truly appreciate what you are going thru. I put mine out on New Years Eve too, however, not with the terrible spasms. With some muscle relaxers and pain meds, I think I am on the road to recovery. I may even try to make a block or two today. For me, getting up and moving around helps BUT no line dancing, yet! Boy oh boy to I miss that! And our troupe has a performance on Wed so I have to be ready for that!
Anyway, I wish you a speedy recovery.
Lots of gentle, healing hugs (((hug)))

Kris, sorry to hear you're having the spasms again. take it easy and I hope they go away soon.
Kris, I am so sorry to hear about your back problems. I really hope that you feel better soon.
Kris, So sorry about your back problelms. I sympathize. I've had back problems since the 80's, had back surgery and have to be very careful I don't irritate or overdue otherwise I'm back in the bed. I take muscle relaxers on a regular basis just to keep the pain down. Can't sit for a long time at the sewing machine or do anything else for a long time without irritating it. What a nuisance! Anyway, hope yours clears up soon.

Kris, sorry to hear of your troubles, hope you are on the mend
I am so sorry to hear of your problems. I am praying that the pain eases soon.
Thanks everyone. I'm trying to be good; taking my meds and stretching a lot. Heat and a portable electrical stimulation device. I didn't sew today but I worked on some appliqué while watching football. I hope to get to the current assignment later today.
Kris, you need to tell Jason that the doctor's orders were "move to a warmer climate"
I'm just getting caught up on this thread. Kris - wow - I love your quilt! It's so cool to see it coming together with the sashing and quilting and everything. I love the spiderweb quilting design. I heard somewhere that a spider web on a quilt is good luck - or maybe it catches luck - or something? Anyway, this should be a very lucky quilt for you if that's true. I'm so sorry to hear about your back. That sounds just awful. Please take care of yourself and I hope your back is better soon.
