A finish but than what else could I do....

I have been stuck on the sofa all weekend with an out of whack back.   Ohh!  Hurts to move!  Don't know what I have done but have been using some Yoga stretches to help get vertical.   I managed to finish my Pumpkins on a Hill while marooned with the remote control.   I also finished "The Girl Who Played With Fire" and started "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest".   Lounging around is not what it is cracked up to be.....I have a few things I intended to do this weekend and they are not getting done.   Like this stuff-a-lanche of crafting (and otherwise) things that need to go upstairs to my sewing room.   [Oops! didn't photograph when I was up and about]   Good thing is they are also not going anywhere.  

I have been so encouraged by my recent several quick finishes that I am inspired to pick up my Drawn Thread Love and Wisdom Sampler to finish.  It will be progress on the shortening that WIP list I have going on. However, ever try to send your husband into your craft/sewing room to retrieve something????   Well, I might be destined to just work on what I can get my hands on downstairs rather than send Mr. W. into the foreign land of stash-dom.   Or worse, have him discover the extent of my stash! I think I'd rather not *expose* him.
From the center looking towards the top/top half completed.

From the center looking towards the bottom/bottom half to do.  I need to pull the chart out but I think I am actually a little more than half-way.

Now for more anti-inflamatories, a hot shower, a cup of tea, a blankie and the remote.............HGTV here I come.

So sorry to hear about your back. My DH is going through the same thing this weekend and I know that it's not fun, nor is sitting around all it's cracked up to be. Both of your pieces look wonderful!

Trick or Treat!

Happy Halloween, Robin!

So sorry you are down in your back. That sucks...except for the stitching part!

Cute finish and really pretty wip Robin.
I;m still struggling with the first Stig book, maybe the others will be better.
Hope your back pain eases soon, take care. Happy Halloween!
