The view from my chair

Well. My back surgery is finished and after a few complications, I am home working on recovery. Thanks for all the well wishes, it really has helped.

I am happy to report that I am able to do a little stitching and am able to walk around to house with the aid of a walker. Each day there is a little improvement and already much of the leg pain I have had for several years has declined.

So here is what I see from my chair. You can see I am all set up for a little handwork. Now just to get motivated!






Happy stitching!

Wow, I can't believe you are already home and stitching again. I'm sure it feels good to have the OP behind you; from now on it can only get better. Love your LE, the flowers look lovely. Look after yourself and don't overdo things.

Heather, I'm so glad you are doing well! I've been thinking about you! You'll be getting a lot of stitching done...can't wait to see more. I'm loving your LE...it's looking great!

Happy to hear that you are up and about a bit...after my surgery a few years ago, I found it very hard to concentrate on anything and to motivate myself! It's something to do with the anesthesia I think...your
piece is just so gorgeous! I think one morning you will awaken and want to do it again...rest and relax,,Hugs, Julierose

Hi Heather, glad to hear you are home. I thought about you a lot last Thursday. I agree with the post about the anesthesia--but it will go away & you will be back to normal soon. I like your view from the chair. Take care and happy stitching.

It's wonderful to hear your home and improving every day. The view from your chair doesn't look too bad, a cuppa and a beautiful quilt to sew.

Glad you are home and doing well - take it slow.

So good to hear a report, Heather and so glad it has been successful. Take it easy - you've had major surgery and will need a lot more time than you think. The motivation will come after you've started to mend. Your body is just getting over the shock practiced on it. My, your LE looks so pretty on your lap. Will continue to pray for you.

Such a pretty quilt to work on. Having been through back surgery twice, I know it is not a fun recovery period.
