I'll tell you, I'm beginning to feel like a yoyo being bounced back and forth between doctors. The last doctor, a neurologist, showed me some of my MRI pics and told me I had no pinched nerve.The surgeon yesterday showed me pics from the same MRI and said that yes there is a bulging disc at the L4L5 level and it was pinching a nerve.
This is crazy! Now he referred me to another surgeon for the back and who knows how long that will take.
At least I had a visit with my puppies (they're pretty big now) to cheer me up and make me laugh.
This morning, I was taking it easy having my tea when I spied the nuthatch at the suet. At one point he was hanging by one foot. I missed that shot.
I've been busy all day at odds and ends, doing wash, writing a few cards, and getting a parcel together to mail. This afternoon though, I did go into my sewing room to finish the stitching on the poinsettia petals. I used Sulky Hollowshimmer for the white highlights and a red metallic for some darker glitter. The Hollowshimmer works pretty well for me but the metallic always gives me trouble no matter what needle I try.
I persevered and got about halfway when I got a major knot under the plate above the bobbin -- took me about 20 minutes to get it all picked out.
Now that I think about it, last time I used a bit of lubricant on the needle which seemed to help.
Anyway, it's done now so I've chosen a blue batik for the narrow border and a green batik for the triangle setting corners.
I won't have time here in my sewing room until Thursday. I have a hair appointment tomorrow morning, a lunch date, I think, and then tutoring in the afternoon. I'm aiming to finish the two pillows and a runner for Christmas but may be a little optimistic bearing in mind my usual pace.! No stress.
