Back troubles

Havent posted in awhile. No pictures tonite. Still plugging along on my Omigosh! quilt. I have 33 of the 111 Shoo Fly blocks finished. Sooo hopefully it wont be too much longer.

Now to my back. I have been having problems for just over a year with my lower back. Then the bottom of my feet started bothering me. Stinging, or itching, burning. Not Diabetes, had that checked. Mussel soreness in my thighs and weakness in my legs at times. Had a MRI and found out I have a torn disc at L5, that is lower back. That is what is causing all the problems. I go Wed. to see a neurosurgeon to find out what we can do about this. In the mean time, no heavy lifting and try to be careful with it. I know you are wondering how I did this, so am I. I have had several falls over the years, no telling when it was damaged. Will keep all of you, my friends, posted.

UPDATE!!! The 4 patches in the square and a square are done, finished, finally. Yeah!!! 444 of them. Here is a picture. The next step is to make 444 half square triangles to make the shoo fly blocks with. I went ahead a made a few, before cutting all of them out. I just had to see what it was going to look like. I am loving it. sorry one is fuzzy.

It is to darn hot to blog or breath or anything. Hope all of you are surviving this heat. Cant wait for Fall weather. Here is a picture of our new dog, Ranger. Bottom picture. I got him about 6 weeks ago. He was 4 months old. The last one in litter. He has grown, and is big for a Yorkie. He also has floppy ear just like his mom. But he is soo cute. The vet techs call him wild man. that is about right. Top picture is Patch the Wonderdog. He is wonder why I did this to him. LOL.. they are getting along ok and even playing tug of war with toys. Wayne watch your toes. LOL
