Slow Monday

About an hour after I wrote the Slow Sunday Stitching blog post about stitching as medicine, I fell down some stairs, got a good crack on the back of my head, and injured my back. So now I really need that medicinal sewing, plus a whole lot of other medicines!
I'm going to take a little blogging break, since I won't be able to sew until I can sit. 
Hope to be back soon!
Happy Quilting!

ouch! sorry to hear that! Suffering with sciatica for the last month, no hand quilting in my comfy chair, but at least I can sit in front of my sewing machine without much discomfort.

Quick-healing thoughts to you, Kathy! I'm so sorry about your fall and your injuries. Take some time to rest and heal and we'll be here when you get back. I fell out of my daughter's car over the weekend when my foot became stuck in her purse strap. No injuries, thankfully, and I was able to jump up before anybody in the parking lot could see what happened! lol

I am so sorry to hear about your accident and wish you a speedy recovery. Just so you know, you are greatly missed. I start each day with your blog because I find you to be inspiring, kind, thoughtful and encouraging. Someone I want to read about. Thanks for your inspiration.

Pam said...

We get so fragile as we get older!!! None of us can be too careful with our bodies. I hope you recover soon. I am so sorry this happened to you. Take care. We will miss your blogs and Slow Stitching Sunday!

Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting said...

OUCH! Hope you are doing better by now. It does take some time to recover from something like that. Falling seems to be the 'thing' this week, since I visited a friend in the hospital on Tuesday, who fell in her kitchen.

Lisa J. said...

I'm sorry to hear this Kathy. I hope you recover quickly.

Miaismine said...

Oh my! Take good care! Blessings to you!

Kate said...

Hope you are feeling much, much better now.
