And Slowly We Go...

My back is still acting up...argh! I'm back to spending a lot of the day in bed or reclined  on the couch. It's so frustrating, I thought I was past this! But I've made an appointment with my doctor in two weeks (first one available). I'm going to ask about acupuncture, because it feels like my muscles are just super tight, and my tailbone gets sore. It almost feels like there are a couple nerves that are irritated too. All I know is, I've got some interviews coming up and I really need to be able to move by then. *sigh*

Anyhoo, after a few days of laying around watching tv again, I risked the pain and did some sewing. My boyfriend came home from work and found me sitting on the floor cutting pieces of fabric...I felt like I got caught reading a dirty magazine! "I know it's bad for my back, but I've only been down here for 5 minutes! I swear!" I got a small amount done and then had to stop...but in these above pictures you can see what one of my plushies looks like before it is assembled. This one is a rainbow kitty...I think I should have done a blue body and green paws, but I think it'll still look nice. I'm trying to get new things in my shop because I won a "30 Minutes of Fame" on an Etsy forum so I am having a BIG sale on Friday night! 25% off everything in my store, PLUS free shipping on custom skirts or my exotic collection, AND because I have a Christmas in July sale, you can also get a custom order half price with any other regular price item. But it's only during 8-8:30pm EST on Friday night, so if you've had your eye on anything or need to buy Christmas gifts....*hint hint*

Ok, enough shameless self-promotion. This is another piece of fabric that I'm hoping to use soon, to add to my exotic collection. It's a red brocade with a black cherry blossom print. I think it'll turn out really if I could just manage to sit long enough to make it.

So what are all of you working on? I'd love to hear about would add some excitement to my day. :) Until then, Slinky will keep me company.


  1. The red cherry blossom fabric is gorgeous! I can't wait to see what you do with it. Congratulations for winning the "30 Minutes of Fame". You go girl!!

    I hope the acupuncture works for you, but I hope you get to feeling better long before your appointment.

  2. Thank you, I hope so too. I feel like I've regressed 4 months! Argh.

  3. I hope your back feels better! Back pain is the worst -- who knew we needed it to do so much?? Congrats on the 30 minutes of fame! Your rainbow kitty is going to be so cute :)

  4. Thanks Sarah! I didn't realize how much it is affected until I hurt myself and couldn't even move!
